The Terminal fuzz by Earthquaker Devices is a blown out, busted and all around destructive fuzz device modeled after an old JAX fuzz. For those not in the know, the JAX fuzz is a re-branded Shin Ei Companion fuzz that is well loved for its buzzy sound. The Terminal takes this design three steps further by allowing control over the gain, fine tuning of the EQ and a massive adjustable volume boost.
The Voice controls the upper and lower mid range determining the over all frequency response while the Treble adjusts the biting top end. The Fuzz control goes from a gritty ‘separated’ drive to a pinched, searing grind. Between these three interactive controls you will find a wide range of blistering fuzz tones at your disposal.
Not only does the terminal rip on guitar, it’s one of the best bass fuzz pedals you have ever heard. Seriously, it rules on bass! The Terminal fuzz has all archaic analog circuitry, true bypass switching and is made one at a time by real humans in Akron, Ohio.
