Audio Kitchen The Flying Squirrel (TFS)
The Flying Squirrel (TFS). It’s big, and it will not slot onto your micro fly-board, I’m afraid, but that was never its objective. The idea was to create the biggest-sounding, richest, fruitiest, most syrupy, decadently harmonic drive and fuzz pedal Audio Kitchen could deliver.
This is not a subtle and gentle ear-buds pedal, it is a BIG MONITORS TURNED UP LOUD pedal. Think of it as the go-to when others leave you with no inspiration. A catalyst to propagate an idea from just a germ into a well blossomed form. Agreed, these are big words and grand ideas, but the moment Audio Kitchen stops battling to make something sonically outstanding, is the moment its expert sonic technicians holster their soldering iron.
And how does it sound? If the extreme settings of The Big trees (TBT) pedal are an autumnal storm tearing through a forest, TFS is a dray of flea-bitten, rabid pariahs, clawing their way down a blackboard. The fact that Dave Grohl used his prototype for the main riff on Foo Fighters’ ‘Run’, is very gratifying but it’s early days in the life of TFS fuzz pedals and I have high hopes that like TBTs before them, Audio Kitchen Flying Squirrel effect pedals will find use in all kinds of unlikely tasks. What kind of havoc will they get up to? That’s down to you and your skill.
TFS includes 9 key control switches including:
- Dirt (output headroom control)
- Tail (bottom)
- Teeth (top)
- Clean Line out level attenuator
- Squirrel Line out level attenuator
- Hi/Off/Low Boost switch
- Triode/Pentode switch
- Fly switch
