Stoned Grasshopper Manual
Three rock and blues essentials in a box. Overdrive, Clean Boost and Fuzz.
Why take a pedalboard to a gig when you have everything you need in one pedal!
Combining three stellar effects into one box a plethora of tones are now at your fingertips with a graphic that suits this classic pedal's name. The Stoned Grasshopper combines three of the most desired effects into one box. This soundscape of tone begins with the fuzz side of the pedal. With three exterior controls and an interior bias trimmer to control the ripping fuzz sounds of the Stoned Grasshopper you have a basic volume control to adjust the signal strength of the fuzz section. The next control is the mid-range control. Sculpt your fuzz tones even further with this added feature not typically seen on vintage fuzz boxes. Last but not least is the fuzz control. This control works like a typical vintage fuzz control. To get the most out of this control I would suggest setting the control to three o'clock or more and using your guitars volume knob to adjust the intensity. Last but not least is the internal bias trimmer. Tune your fuzz to a sputtering dying fuzz effect or tune it to be a more fuzzy warm sound. All this control over a vintage seventies based fuzz circuit. The overdrive section of the pedal is based on the most popular overdrive ever made, the tube screamer. While the circuit is based on this infamous pedal there are various mods to the circuit to allow you to get more drive as well as an altered tone stack that accompanies the altered drive section. This allows the circuit to have more transparency at lower drive settings. The controls on the drive section are simply, level, tone and drive. Last but not least is the clean boost section. The boost is a mosfet based booster allowing for crystal clean boost that is capable of overdriving a clean tube amp. So whether you use this to boost your signal or to drive your overdriven tube amp into oblivion it is sure to please. At the rear of the Stoned Grasshopper there is a unique jack configuration enabling you to separately route the fuzz section of the pedal to anywhere in your signal chain. This is accomplished by using an internal switching jack that will separate the fuzz section from the drive and boost section when plugging into these jacks. Yes you get all of this for not much more than a new tube screamer would cost! All of our pedals are built with a true bypass circuit therefore not sucking the life out of your signal when in bypass mode. The Stoned Grasshopper operates on an industry standard 2.1mm center negative power supply or a high quality alkaline battery. All pedals are covered by a one year warranty on parts and labor and is hand built right here in the U.S. If you should happen to have any other questions about the Stoned Grasshopper please feel free to contact me via the contact form on the Home page of the site.
