The TARS Fuzz and Filter pedal from Collision Devices: A sonic voyage that breaches the event horizon of guitar tone.
Based on the original Collision Devices' Black Hole Symmetry fuzz, the TARS delivers a dense fuzziness ready to tear a hole in any mix. Combine this with the MS-20 style filter, and you're wielding a cosmos of fuzzy, noisy textures, ready to shape interstellar sonic landscapes.
The Gain begins its journey post a JFET transistor input, before diving deep into the rich silicon gain and clipping stages. The Master dial controls the volume of your output. The CutOff fader guiders the cutoff frequency from a lowly 15Hz to an astronomical 44kHz, all based on the robust LM13700 stage. Twist the Resonance and amplify the signal's intensity surrounding the cutoff frequency.
The LPF VOL is your handy-dandy VCA, determining the output of the filter, ensuring your tonal galaxy is aligned with your setup. Choose your desired attenuation curve via the 2p/4p toggle switch. Whether you crave a gentle -12dB/octave (2p) drop or a steep descent at -24dB/octave (4p), it's all at your fingertips.
Looking to give your tone an extra-dimensional shift? The 'Add Fuzz' toggle allows an additional unfiltered fuzz signal, rocketing the volume and manipulating frequencies based on the cutoff's celestial position. The Serial toggle lets you decide if the fuzz journeys through the filter or if they soar side by side.
The Expression/CV input is synchronously tied to the cutoff fader, with the fader determining the range of the expression.
With the TARS, your tone is no longer bound by earthly confines.
