Lizard King

DESCRIPTION

AVAILABLE JULY 2024

Make way for the new heir to the octave fuzz throne, the Lizard King from Electro-Harmonix. Directly inspired by the EHX x JHS collaboration released in 2023, the Lizard King takes the gnarly and responsive octave fuzz circuit from the Lizard Queen and optimizes it for bass and beyond. With updated tone controls and a new Blend knob, the bass’s fundamental tone and low-end is preserved while the top-end of the fuzz tone is shaped to fit or dominate any mix!

The EHX Lizard King is a fixed-gain fuzz that is dynamically responsive. Adjustments to your instruments volume affects the amount of fuzz. Lower instrument volumes create a clear, fuzzy overdrive, while full instrument volume sends the gain over the top for ripping riff and searing solo tones. The familiar VOLUME and OCTAVE knobs control overall output and octave blend volume respectively. New to the Lizard King, the BLEND knob sets the mix between your clean and fuzz tones to create the perfect balance of fuzz while retaining your bass’s attack and low-end. The TONE knob is a low pass filter that rolls off the highs, while the SUN/SHADOW switch further enhances the tone of the octave fuzz and clean tones. SUN boosts the octave fuzz with a more driving midrange, and the clean tone accessed by the BLEND knob has more treble and bass frequencies. When the switch is set to SHADOW, the clean tone is unchanged, and fuzz tone is tighter.

Owner's Manual
POWER JACK
An optional 9VDC, center-negative power supply can be connected to the power jack to provide power without a battery. The Lizard King requires 8mA at 9VDC on a center-negative plug. Do not exceed 12VDC at the power jack.
VOLUME KNOB
Sets the output level of the Lizard King.
OCTAVE KNOB
Controls the intensity of the octave effect. Turn clockwise for more octave, or turn counterclockwise for a deeper sound.
SUN/SHADOW SWITCH
Enhances the octave fuzz and clean tones of the Lizard King. With this switch set to SUN, the octave fuzz is boosted with a more driving midrange, and the clean tone accessed by the BLEND knob has more treble and bass frequencies. When the switch is set to SHADOW, the clean tone is unchanged, and fuzz tone is tighter.
BLEND KNOB
Blends between the fuzz/octave and a clean signal with no fuzz. This is useful for maintaining the attack and low-end for bass instruments, and for allowing more harmonic detail for guitar or other chord instruments. When Blend is set fully counterclockwise, the output is a clean tone. As the knob is turned clockwise, more fuzz tone is mixed in. When Blend is set fully clockwise, the output is all octave fuzz effect.
TONE KNOB
Controls the high frequencies of the Lizard King. When the knob is fully clockwise the pedal is “wide open” – passing the full fuzz tone. As this knob is turned counterclockwise, high frequencies are rolled off.
INPUT JACK
Audio input to the Lizard King.
AMP JACK
Audio output from the Lizard King. In bypass mode, the AMP jack is directly connected to the INPUT jack.
FOOTSWITCH & STATUS LED
The footswitch engages or bypasses the effect. The status LED lights when the effect is engaged. The LED is off in bypass mode. The Lizard King employs True Bypass.
