Features

Skovarn, meaning ‘ear’ in Cornish, has it’s roots back in 1969. A rarely used CMOS chip provides the starting point for this fuzz, instead of your standard IC’s or transistors. The advantage being that the chip is known for its ‘hot tube’ sound and response and different feel to other PI-style pedals. The chip feeds straight into a Baxandall tone stack which, with the addition of a second control, gives a wide range of tones.. The added mid-shift control enables you to go between scooped, flat, and then a classic sound. Skovarn will go from 1969 classic fuzz sounds, to Smashing Pumpkins Gish / Siamese dream sound Billy made famous with the PI.
