The big brother to the fuzz factory, this pedal incorporates a theremin-like square antenna made of copper mounted on a thick bent acrylic footpedal to adjust one of the knobs on the fuzz, the stability control. The user can get all the sounds associated with the fuzz factory, plus control parameters such as oscillation and filtering frequency by foot proximity to the pedal. Complete mayhem in a box... it's sexy-looking too.
The Fuzz Probe is a kind of cross between a theremin and a fuzz factory. There is a 3 5/8" copper plate mounted on a chunk of 3/8" clear acrylic that passes over the top of the pedal housing, angles down to sharp turn, and goes back to the pedal. Under the whole mess is a 3 5/8" by 7" sheet of aluminum that provides shielding from annoying ground effects and wires under the stage.
The copper antenna projects a field of RF energy that is affected by your foot (or other appendage), altering the circuit that generates it, an in so doing, increasing the brightness of that LED on the top of the pedal and also controlling the STABILITY (STAB) knob on the back. I could have made it just control that LED, I mean, that's enough for some people, but nooo, I went and connected it to the stability knob too. This lets you select your favorite squealy fuzz factory setting (doesn't the band love that?) and then mess around with the STAB knob with your foot and create little melodies and interference modulations with your guitar (doesn't the band love that even more?).
