As it's name implies, the Fatman/V2 has a very big sound! It offers a huge variety of distortions ranging from warm tube sounds, bluesy overdrive, ballsy distortion, and insane oscillating fuzz; this pedal is extremely versatile. In Fatman mode this pedal just plain rocks, the gain knob allows for a very wide range of distorion to cover every playing style!
When in the V2 oscillating fuzz mode, this pedal offers insane leads. You can switch between having a pre-set oscillator tone, controlled by a knob, or you can vary the oscillator frequency in real time by placing your foot over the built-in light control, allowing you to change the tone of your sound as you play. In V2 mode this pedal can also give you very robotic sounding synthetic guitar tones, and even Nintendo-like video game sounds! Please note that when I refer to an oscillating fuzz, I mean it really oscillates. When you are not playing you will hear a tone generated by the pedal. In oscillating mode if you hit a note and let it fade out, you will first hear the oscillator sound interact with your insturment for a ring modulator like sound, then the oscillator will take over as the instrument continues to fade out.
Features include: true-bypass footswitching, Switchcraft jacks, heavy duty enclosure, dual color LED indicator, 9V AC adapter jack, and low noise high quality parts.
The controls for the Fatman/V2 pedal are: Gain, Volume, Frequency, photocell/Freq. Knob select switch, true bypass footswitch, and mode select footswitch. It also has a dual color LED that is green when in Fatman distortion mode, and red when in V2 oscillating fuzz mode. Finally, there is an internal clean blend control so it sounds as good on bass, vocals and keyboards as it does on guitar! It is powered by a 9V battery, or optional 9V Boss style AC adapter (not included).
The guitar sound clips below were recorded running the pedal directly into the a mixer. The bass sound clip was recorded with an Ibanez Ergodyne bass, running through a Hartke amp, miked with a SM57. No EQ or any other effects were applied. No EQ or any other effects were applied. The first clip demostrates how intense the V2 can be on bass and how it can act as a fuzz-wah. The first 2 guitar clips demostrate some possible oscillating fuzz lead sounds. The third and fourth clips demonstrate the rythmn mode, with gain at 100%, 50%, 10% and 0.
