The Party Brute is a synthesis of everything I’ve learned while experimenting on the Custom Artefact, Blush, and Demhe fuzzes; refined into a vintage-voiced tonal powerhouse.
The Party Brute features Silicon BC549C transistors, green 80n, mixed with NOS Bundeswehr Ge diodes, and Fairchild Silicon diodes on the Texture Toggle. A handy low-cut on the Focus Toggle, entirely re-voiced Detail and Bias controls, green LED, and a top that glitters like the Hulk at a New Year's Eve party. The Party Brute is a tough, muscular, and darker fuzz than the Black, but still bright enough to stand out.
I’ve gotten many comments from customers who wanted a darker fuzz for their brighter clean-channels, or for their Fender heads and combos. The Party Brute’s darker voicing and burly mid-range tackles this application perfectly. The Party Brute still has enough clarity for complex chord-voicings, but also some serious weight for punchy single-note leads and riffs. This custom version is also tuned to favor octave-up resolution, and on some Bias settings you can hear a hint of octave "scramble."
To help tame any overly bass-heavy settings you will undoubtedly find, I’ve also included a Focus Toggle that shaves the low-end just enough to keep the Party Brute from getting woofy. The Focus Toggle also works well for lead work when you want stand out in a dense mix.
