We are proud to present our new and improved JPTR FX classic: the TESLA WOLF V2. A completely overhauled version of our highly versatile and surprise packed TESLA WOLF OVERDRIVE in a pedalboard and user friendly enclosure with even more usable features than its successful predecessor.
In addition to existing features - such as the three internal dip switches to dramatically alter the gain characteristics of the TESLA WOLF through the addition of select diodes and LED’s - we have further added an internal Bass Boost switch which offers the capability to dramatically increase the low end output. Yes, this thing can be felt in the room.
We have also replaced the Voltage Regulator of its predecessor with a Dry Volume control, which allows for a smooth addition of your unaffected input signal on top of the overdriven/distorted signal.
Finally, we exchanged the Low Pass Filter for a more efficient Tone Filter with a much broader tonal range. This control contains everything from thick, earthy lows to ear piercing highs – perfect for making your guitar signal sit in the right place within a mix, whether dampened or present.
Apart from these changes - and the most immediately obvious reduction in size - the TESLA WOLF still incorporates an extensive and generous gain control that allows the pedal to be used anywhere between subtle overdrive and sputtering/gated fuzz settings, while still maintaining a very dynamic and touch sensitive response. The aforementioned dip switches can then be set according to taste, turning the TESLA WOLF into a four in one multitool for any dirt pedal application.
Here is the overview of the TESLA WOLF's main features:
Multiple drive and fuzz options - from subtle to erruptive
Practical and effective Tone Filter for a wide sonic range
Dry Volume control to help retain clarity or further tame otherwise abrasive settings/combinations
Three internal dip switches:
+ two silicon diodes (modern)
+ two military grade (&over 3 decades old) germanium diodes (vintage)
+ two pairs of LEDs to the circuit (rodent)
Additional Bass Boost switch - for when those chugs need to chug
Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU (centre -, 2.1 mm, <50 mA current draw)
To us, the TESLA WOLF is more than just an ordinary overdrive. It covers the most ground in anything from late to modern overdrive and fuzz history, with an impressive tonal range and variable/combinable clipping options, making it one of the most user oriented and versatile drive circuits we at JPTR FX had the pleasure to design.
Inspired by an old Akai GX 210D reel to reel tape machine from the 1970s, the JIVE - Reel Saturator was made to give you the gooey and warm saturation obtained when pushing the Akai’s pre-amps to the max.
This pedal is bold, gritty, present and simply chock-full of screaming old-school mojo. If you are into lo-fi garage tones, want to make your modern-day synth sound like 1972 or if you simply want to add a touch of vintage warmth and presence to your guitar/bass/vocals/whatever, then the JIVE - Reel Saturator is your sonic dream come true.
The JIVE’s control set is supremely simple, yet staggeringly versatile. Familiar Volume and Gain controls make things louder and dirtier as expected, but what truly gives the Jive character is its three clipping diode toggles on the right-hand-side of the pedal.
· Lo-fi Reel Saturator - from subtle tone enhancing, to mind-melting distortion
· Volume and Gain - for ample amounts of dB on tap
· 3 clipping diode selectors - mix and match diodes as you like, for ceaseless saturation combinations
· 9V to 18V operation - allows for increased headroom
· Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU
(centre -, 2.1 mm, <50 mA current draw)
The top toggle introduces an Asymmetrical Germanium diode, the middle inserts a Symmetrical Anti-parallel Silicone diode, while the bottom toggle presents a Symmetrical Anti-Parallel Germanium diode. You can mix and match all of these diodes as you please, for worlds of different dirt flavours.
Use Jive as a volume boost, a subtle compressor or even a semi-transparent overdrive, exalt your sound with variable distortion or tear some walls down with lots and LOTS of dB. It is all up to you.
You can even run this mojo monster on everything from 9v to 18v giving you even more headroom to explore the crackling and gritty textures within the Jive.
JPTR FX truly outdid themselves on their weirdness with this transcending fuzz modulator. Now it's up to you to outdo yours! The SUPER WEIRDO will be your closest friend and best kept secret, the kink in your playing and the twist in your tone
A testament to its name, the SUPER WEIRDO is unearthly, alien and downright trippy and possibly is the only pedal that simultaneously builds monumental walls, all while tearing them apart at the same time!
On the surface, the SUPER WEIRDO is disguised as an early 90s-style gated fuzz, with a dedicated low pass filter knob to effortlessly find your place anywhere in the mix. But that’s far from where the freak show ends. This three-headed beast delivers fuzz, time modulation AND momentary glitch-bombs all in one enclosure.
The core operation of this unit is to further enhance the input signal with an advanced, time-based modulation effect - The Pulse Width Modulator.
· Fuzz Modulator - from classic, thick gated fuzz tones, to glitchy sonic anomalies
· Pulse Width Dials - create everything from huge doubler tones, to chaotic cascading walls of sound
· Glitch Switch - momentarily introduce oscillation into the signal, for bursts of trippy textures
· Expression Input - for on the fly control of the delay time
· Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU
(centre -, 2.1 mm, <80 mA current draw)
Two dedicated knobs allow the player to multiply and manipulate their playing. The Feedback Mix controls the amount of modulated signal added to the base sound, acting almost as a doubler. A further Time Amount knob controls the distance between each modulated pulse, enabling the addition and separation of layer upon layer, resulting in a wall of thick, dynamic and articulate fuzz. Plus, if you dial in a short time setting, you get a doubletracking fuzz tone.
Beyond this, an extra momentary footswitch gives the player expressive freedom to disrupt the signal with quick bursts of oscillation - aptly named Glitch. Plus, to guarantee all manner of expressive possibilities, an expression input allows you to connect a standard expression pedal for on the fly creativity.
One of our most successful little boxes - THE JIVE - has become a twin, a clone and a dichotomous Jekyll and Hyde.
Answering the gazillion requests of musicians from all over, we have upgraded our successful little box of umph to be able to perform like a dichotomous Jekyll and Hyde: the DOUBLE JIVE.
Since the JIVE users so far had a very distinct division among themselves into two main groups, we would often receive lamentations about how some wished they'd have two, or even one with two separate in's ans out's.
There was group one, who mainly used the Jive as a transparent overdrive early in their chain. The clipping diodes would help the user find the right kind of breakup character and voilà: you had the perfect companion for that little extra on top.
Group two liked to use their JIVE's as an always on pedal, similar to a vintage style tape compressor, placed close to the end of their signal path. This would bring out lot of sparkle and life in the overall sound, but it would also work as an enhancer for all effects placed prior to the JIVE.
And thus the messages started coming in. Some wished they could have an always on JIVE with an added button to kick it into overdrive mode, perhaps with a designated diode. After plenty of consideration, we decided to do what made most sense and just put two in a box, along with their separate inputs.
"Why?" I hear the naysayers croon.
Because now all the conceivable possibilities for our players running complex signal paths are finally (fingers crossed) covered:
You run a stereo/dual/wet+dry rig? No problem - just patch your last pedals into the DOUBLE JIVE and fine tune the individual JIVE's to your liking.
You run a mono line but want a JIVE at he beginning of your chain to act as a drive and one at the end to act like a comp? Dealio -Patch effects between the separate in's and out's and unleash experimental havoc.
You run a simple board and like having two transparent drives that stack up nicely? Boom - Just use input one and output two and it operates just like a regular JIVE, but doubled. Stack sounds, engage diodes and find the perfect more+much more combo for your suiting.
You are a curious musician with a healthy level of destructive curiosity? Superb - run the DOUBLE JIVE as a guest loop to add pedals to your chain with and turn your board into an evolving modular behemoth.
You're a Jazz cat that can tell apart this cork and that one? Aces - set the gain a little higher on one side and watch your audience endure anxiety attack upon anxiety attack while they marvel at your sorcery.
Regardless of the player and whatever the occasion, the DOUBLE JIVE can finally put and end to those who need a little on top of the more they already asked for. After all - one can't ever have too much of anything.
Yes it runs stereo!
Iconic sounds are often a product of struggle and compromise. They are unmistakable, genuine and have the potential to leave a mark on society. They are bold, out of place and larger than life. They fight back, claim their prize but never abandon their humble beginnings.
They are the SILVERMACHINE - Dual Gain Stage Fuzz!
SILVERMACHINE is a new interpretation of a time-tested attitude. Featuring two gain stages in a parallel circuit, competing for an unrefined and unbuffered vintage fuzz conquest. With one shared master volume to keep it simple but never stupid, the SILVERMACHINE´s gain knobs act as a filter, delivering tones that range from sizzling drives to rich, dynamic fuzz.
Pushing the gain stages even further brings out the upper octave, instantly reminiscent of the wild Woodstock days, with a twist of Beatnik club nights and Lo-Fi Psychedelic Garage seances.
· Dual-gain-stage Fuzz - from low-gain sizzle, to beefy Bender tones and all the way to screaming octa-fuzz sounds
· Two Gain knobs - acts as two highly interactive gain filters for endless fuzzy combinations
· Master Volume - we all know louder is better!
· Eye-catching vintage enclosure
· Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU
(centre -, 2.1 mm, <50 mA current draw)
The SILVERMACHINE retells Fuzz history in a modern iteration. Its versatility carries tones between Benders and Faces, but infinitely less compressed and deliberately open in character.
While noisy, buzzy and sizzling Fuzz and Distortion sounds and general sonic heresy are indeed our medium, our reputation has felt somewhat unjustified and incomplete thus far. As such, it was our duty to release the planetary disorder unit that is the JPTR FX ADD VIOLENCE.
Named after one of our favourite EPs, the ADD VIOLENCE is a forceful, recklessly loud and uncompromising Super Fuzz. It is our take on the Univox classic, but on a jet rocket in a tank - thanks to its powerful transistors (the heaviest hitters we could find) and hand selected Russian NOS germanium diodes from the 70s (tirelessly tracked down on eBay for each unit) and auxiliary controls.
Disabling the diode switch results in a wholly more aggressive gated fuzz, with a raw, compressed and mid focused character. The diodes also provide an increase in volume, making the fuzz feel nearly twice as big. Engaging the diodes adds singing sustain and a very organic, dynamic breakup.
The ADD VIOLENCE also comes equipped with volume, gain and tone controls. The latter produces a very wide sweep - from complete mid scoop to full mid hump.
Three additional trim pots located within the enclosure provide further auxiliary controls: an upper octave control, transforming the Add Violence into an octafuzz, and a boost control of up to 16db - loud enough to blow out your continental neighbors eardrums. Lastly, a clean blend to maintain and balance clarity, texture and retain the native character of that beyond of just guitars.
This very versatile three in one fuzz tornado also comes in a remarkably pedalboard reale state friendly enclosure. Its practical control parameters allow it to especially shine with low end pronounced instruments, such drum machines, synths and bass guitars.
The ADD VIOLENCE is a very assertive fuzz that will outperform any of its contemporaries that are aimed at guitar players alone. It will also harmonize well with about anything and everything you fancy plugging into it. As always: we would never judge.
