Dirty Haggard Audio Arachnid Octave Fuzz

Watch out, this spider's got bite!

The Arachnid takes everything you know and love about octave fuzz and kicks it up a notch.  This circuit is a refined version of the Fender Blender with a more usable EQ profile and easier to use controls.  The mix knob lets you blend in just the right amount of upper-octave bite to your clean signal without high-passing it like on the original.  The added germanium clipping diode increases the nastiness and depth of the distortion sound and makes the octave much clearer.  This pedal has a huge range of gain, from slightly distorted octave fuzz to full blown exploding amp buzzy craziness with infinite sustain but no line level noise when you aren't playing.  I can guarantee you haven't heard an octave fuzz that sounds quite like this.  Come try one today and feel the venom!

Nick from Dirty Haggard says: 

The Arachnid is an octave fuzz based on the Fender Blender. I restructured the tone circuitry for optimal performance (and got rid of the knob, since most of the originals' sweep is extremely dark), reworked the input frequency-response so it doesn't attenuate the lows of the clean bypass (shout out to bass players), and added a couple extra little tricks and bits (like the NOS germanium diode in the clipping section alongside the familiar 4148 for a harmonically rich asymmetrical distortion).

Very rich, highly usable fuzz tones at lower gain settings, out of control/distorted-as-all-living-piss at higher gain settings.

As per usual, this pedal is SUPER quiet when not playing, but fully raging when you are. No hum/buzz.

 

 

 

This pedal works as described and is in very good condition, showing only light wear and some attached velcro as can be seen in photos.
