Ripped Speaker

DESCRIPTION

The Ripped Speaker is a modern fuzz with old school roots and pays homage to one of the ways that early, distorted guitar and bass sounds were made. At low fuzz settings the pedal emulates the lo-fi distortion sounds of yesteryear, the kinds of sounds created by a razor blade applied to a speaker cone, a loose tube or a faulty channel on a recording console. When you crank the fuzz up the sound is transformed. It’s modern and monumental with a searing, fully saturated, fuzz tone.

The Ripped Speaker’s RIP knob is a bias control which sets the amount of clipping at the top and bottom of the signal wave form. It adds a lot of versatility and lets you tailor the character of the fuzz. Noon is neutral, a position where the fuzz is perfectly biased… fat, with a great low end and top end bite without being harsh. As you turn the knob clockwise the pedal produces a hard gating effect and the signal sputters and chokes. It’s great for creating a dying battery effect. Turning the knob CCW produces yet a different style of fuzz with a smoother gating effect where the signal fades out quickly.

The Ripped Speaker’s TONE control is active and delivers a tilt-shift type EQ. That means at noon the EQ is flat. As you turn the knob counter-clockwise the frequency response gets darker with more pronounced lows and less highs. Going clockwise yields a brighter tone with more highs and rolled back lows.

The Ripped Speaker features true bypass switching, comes equipped with a 9 Volt battery and accepts a standard EHX 9 Volt power supply.

Owner's Manual
VOL KNOB
Adjusts the output volume of the Ripped Speaker.
RIP KNOB
The RIP knob is a bias control that varies the amount of clipping at either the top or bottom of the signal waveform. The least compressed and open sound is with RIP set to noon. As you turn RIP in either direction from noon, the character of the fuzz is altered: becoming choked or gated, creating interesting textures and sputtering effects.
TONE KNOB
Controls an active tilt-shift type EQ to further shape your fuzz tone. Set TONE to noon and the EQ is flat. As you turn TONE counterclockwise, the frequency response gets darker with more pronounced lows and less highs. Clockwise yields a brighter tone with more highs and rolled back lows.
FUZZ KNOB
Controls the amount of input gain that goes into the fuzz circuit. Turn FUZZ clockwise to go from light to heavy fuzz.
FOOTSWITCH & LED
The footswitch toggles the Ripped Speaker between effect and true bypass mode. The LED lights when the effect is engaged.
INPUT JACK
This 1/4” jack is the input to the Ripped Speaker. Plug your instrument into here. The input impedance is 1MΩ.
OUTPUT JACK
This 1/4” jack is the Ripped Speaker’s output. Connect this to the input of your next effect or amplifier. Output impedance is 100Ω.
