Germanium Special – Very Limited Runs – NOS Germanium Transistor
A precision made germanium fuzz. Each output transistor is measured and biased for the perfect smooth and creamy fuzz. This is for those that simply want the the smoothest fuzz we offer. We use a hand selected NOS Germanium Transistor for the final output Q2 and a silicon 2n3565 for Q1 for the current gain. The voltage gain transistor provides all of the audio characteristics that people adore with fuzz circuits. Each unit is hand built, aligned, and tested.
The Keeley Germanium Monterey Special has a vintage fuzz, rotary speaker, vibe, harmonic and auto wah, an octave up or octave down, as well an expression control to allow you to create a rich array of new and newer sounds.
There are two channels on the Monterey Rotary Fuzz Vibe, and these can be configured to give you five different sounds.
