Packing a huge punch, the Contraband is a single-knob fuzz machine that ravages your guitar signal and generates a metallic wall of sound. The single volume knob lets you decide how loud your signal will be, while the tone switch can help thin out humbuckers or beef up single-coils. Because of its size, it’s easy to smuggle into regions where fuzz is not welcome.
The natural bass frequencies of different guitars and pickup combinations, at times can be too much; this is where the Thick and Thin switch comes in handy. Single-coil pickups may sound better in Thick mode, while humbuckers may sound better in Thin mode, but you can find versatile and complimentary tones in both positions no matter the pickup selection. The mild built-in gate allows you to get those choked-off, dying-battery sounds when you roll down your guitar’s volume knob.
The Contraband comes in a gold-sparkle, textured enclosure with navy ink featuring original artwork of a smuggler delivering fuzz to the people.
