ZANDER CIRCUITRY Surplus Elemental Overdriver

£149.00

Zander Circuitry's Surplus Elemental Overdriver is a two-stage transistor boost/ overdrive pedal with the capability to achieve beautiful clean boost tones as well as complex distortion and even some fuzz.

The pedal features two foot-switchable channels with independent gain controls, perfect for on-the-fly switching. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches.

Use the Response control to tweak the input and output capacitor value, rolling off the gain and low-end frequencies to achieve super-complex tones. It offers everything from a thinner, brighter character through to a grainy, spitty character. This pedal is incredibly reactive to your guitar's volume pot and playing dynamics, making it great for those of you who prize 'feel' above all else.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Surplus Elemental Overdriver features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

  • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
  • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
  • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
  • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
  • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
  • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
  • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
  • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

The pedal features two foot-switchable channels with independent gain controls, perfect for on-the-fly switching. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches.

ZANDER CIRCUITRY Cranium Murine Distortion

£149.00

Zander Circuitry's Cranium Murine Distortion is an all-in-one version of the famous RAT circuit, pulling together the best bits from various mods and generational iterations and introducing enhancements such as Zander Circuitry's signature diode selector.

Key to the Cranium's flexible approach to the RAT circuit is the interplay between Freq and Tone controls, enabling precise dialling in of your sound. The Body control takes this even further, affecting how much bass is produced for a deeper or more sculpted tone.

The Blast control allows you to set the gain level for the second footswitch for a volume/gain boost when kicked in.

ZANDER CIRCUITRY Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp

£149.00

The Zander Circuitry Sono is one for all you bassists out there: a bass fuzz and preamp in a single small package. 

The preamp side of the pedal takes you from clean to medium-gain, and importantly the Blend control allows you to add back in some of your original signal for clarity and spank. 

Add fuzz to a good core bass tone and you have the recipe for some awesome sounds. Use the fuzz side of the Sono to dial in a tone that suits, and use the Blend control to add back in some of your original signal to ensure nothing gets lost in action. The Rip control enables you to dial in compression and some of that delicious gated/ velcro mayhem. Seriously, let it rip!

As the preamp and fuzz sides are completely independent, you can also stack them together for even more flexibility.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp features a more compact footprint, with bespoke knurled steel controls. The Blend controls have been updated to work better, the fuzz tone has been tweaked, and the preamp side now offers a wider gain range.

The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

Features:

  • Updated version of Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp for 2021
  • Super-versatile fuzz and preamp pedal specifically tuned for bass guitar
  • Top-mounted jacks
  • P Lvl, P Gain, P Blend, F Lvl, F Gain, F Blend, F Tone & F Rip controls

ZANDER CIRCUITRY SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator

£149.00

From it’s humble beginnings as a modified Fuzz Factory' circuit to its latest iteration, Zander Circuitry's first pedal model has come a long way.

These days the SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator is a super-versatile 8-knob fuzz monstrosity, capable of taking you from vintage-style fuzz tones right through to complete sonic annihilation!

There is plenty of scope to push your imagination with this pedal - use the Shunt control to tame feedback and create stuttering gated effects. Squash compresses the attack, creating a synth-like character at higher settings. Starve restricts the voltage to the circuit, creating beautiful dying-battery sounds. Bright allows you to dial in just the right amount of high frequency, while Body enables you to emphasise or cut the low end. Punch controls the mid-range frequencies.

The Tone footswitch allows you to bypass the Bright and Punch settings to give a fat, mid-rich sound with a volume boost, although the output can be reduced by means of an internal trim pot if required.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator features a more compact footprint with beautiful knurled steel controls. The circuit is revoiced and the transistors used in this latest version are completely different.

The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

ZANDER CIRCUITRY Foxxton Woods

£149.00

The Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods is an octave fuzz based on the 1970s Foxx Tone Machine. But in true Zander Circuitry fashion, the Foxxton Woods takes the concept to another level, with extra controls giving far more versatility than the original.

Since the 1960s, fuzz has gone hand-in-hand with octave effects, and it's been popular ever since. The Foxxton Woods spans eras with its tones, from classic '60s to filthy '90s and more. 

The Body Control adjusts the low-end frequencies, allowing you to dial in muscular, deep tones or a tighter, more focused sound for cutting through a mix - or somewhere in between. 

The Shift control adjusts the mid-range frequencies, enabling you go from mid-scooped to mid-boosted tones.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods fuzz features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

  • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
  • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
  • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
  • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
  • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
  • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
  • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
  • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

The pedal features two foot-switches, enabling you to access the octave-fuzz or fuzz separately - each is also linked to an independent volume control. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage one of the effects by holding your foot down on the relevant switch then releasing it when you're done.

Features:

  • Updated version of Foxxton Woods for 2021
  • Top-mounted jacks
  • Gain, Tone, Body, Shift, O Level, F Level & Diode Selector Controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).
  • Current draw: 128mA

ZANDER CIRCUITRY Siva

£149.00

The Zander Circuitry Siva takes the late '70s IC/op-amp Big Muff - as used so effectively by The Smashing Pumpkins - and drags it kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

The op-amp Muff circuit is perfect for grunge, but can do so much more: it's crunchy, sludgy and is packed full of crushing gain.

Key to getting a great tone is the EQ, and the Siva features a super-tweakable EQ section. Two Shift controls alter the capacitor values in the tone stack, adjusting the filter sweep and cut-off. These controls interact with the Tone control to enable you to dial in the perfect sound.

What's new?

This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Siva features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:
