Lysis MKII

The SolidGoldFX Lysis MKII is a polyphonic octave fuzz modulator designed to merge the worlds of strings and synths. It features a discrete analog square wave fuzz circuit with an FET preamp, delivering thick, resonant filters, multiple polyphonic voicings, and sweeping LFOs. The pedal offers polyphonic pitch shifting, including octave down, octave down/up, and super power chord voicings, along with selectable high-pass/low-pass filters with adjustable resonance. The Lysis MKII also includes a tap tempo LFO with three waveform modes (triangle, sine, square) and 11 presets for soft modulation or heavy, rhythmic sweeps. Additionally, it has assignable expression/CV operation, true bypass, and operates on 9V DC power with a current draw of 60mA. The dimensions of the pedal are 4.67" x 3.68" x 1.18".

If 6 Was 9

The SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9 BC183 MKII Fuzz pedal is a modern interpretation of the classic late 60's, early 70's Fuzz Face circuit with several updates and modifications. The pedal is based on the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face circuit and uses two BC183 transistors, providing soulful fuzz tones between the mushy compression of Germanium and the brash sound of Silicon. Key Features: \- Silicon Fuzz pedal \- Based on the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face circuit \- Uses two BC183 transistors for soulful fuzz tones \- Variable voltage pump supplies power between 5 to 15VDC internally \- Thick balanced bass response and tight fuzz tone \- Tone toggle switch for choosing between tight and thick fuzz voicings \- Bias knob for varying the operational voltage, offering a huge range of tones \- Saturation control trims the circuit’s input for better cleanup or impedance matching \- Soft-touch True bypass switching and top-mounted jacks \- Hand-made in Montreal, Canada \- Powered by optional 9V DC PSU (center -, 2.1 mm, 20 mA current draw) The pedal also features vintage spec carbon comp resistors to enhance the warmth of the core circuit. Additionally, it includes an external bias control and a 2-way tone toggle switch for further tonal versatility. The If 6 Was 9 MKII pedal is equipped with a variable voltage pump, supplying power between 5 to 15VDC from a single 9V power source. This feature eliminates the need for multiple batteries and allows players to set the voltage to their preferred supply, delivering consistent fuzzy compression or breakup. The pedal's saturate control trims the circuit’s input for better cleanup, signal chain integration, or impedance matching, making it ideal for use with a wah pedal. The soft-touch true bypass switching and top jacks bring this classic fuzz face into the modern age. The dimensions of the pedal are approximately 4.77" x 2.6" x 1.39" (121.1 x 66 x 35.3mm), and it weighs around 250g. It is powered by an optional 9V DC power supply with a 2.1mm barrel plug and negative center, with a current draw of approximately 20mA. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, it is recommended to visit the official SolidGoldFX website or contact authorized dealers.


The Rosie by SolidGoldFX is a modern reincarnation of the venerable MK II Tone Bender circuit, optimized for contemporary performance while retaining the favorite tonal characteristics of the original design. Unlike the classic Tone Bender MK II circuit, which used temperamental germanium transistors, Rosie utilizes a combination of JFET and select low gain, low noise silicon transistors, providing reliable consistency in punch and attack. The pedal features a two-way tone toggle and external bias control, allowing users to dial in a broad range of textures, from thick and syrupy to chunky and aggressive. It is designed to make single coils sing and humbuckers bite, bringing out the best from both types of pickups. Rosie's custom high impedance JFET input ensures worry-free performance by eliminating the possibility of any unwanted interaction with buffers or wahs, allowing it to be placed anywhere in the signal chain without adverse tonal impact. The pedal also features a bias control that lets users adjust the amount of voltage to the final transistor, providing a range of splatty singing lead tones, full-bodied fuzz, and everything in between. Additionally, it offers a two-way tone toggle switch for standard and bass reduction modes, as well as a true bypass footswitch. Technical Specifications: \- Circuit: Reincarnation of MK II Tone Bender circuit \- Transistors: Combination of JFET and select low gain, low noise silicon transistors \- Controls: External bias control, two-way tone toggle switch, true bypass footswitch \- Power Requirement: Center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 5mA of current \- Dimensions: 4.77″ x 2.6 x 1.39″ (121.1 x 66 x 35.3mm) The Rosie is designed to provide modern stability while capturing the classic sounds of early records, making it suitable for a wide range of musical styles and applications.

Spanish Castle

The SolidGoldFX Spanish Castle Dual Fuzz is a versatile pedal designed to provide a wide range of fuzz tones. It pays tribute to the year 1969, a significant period in the gear world. The pedal features two separate and footswitchable If 6 Was 9 circuits, each representing different eras of the Fuzz Face. The right side of the Spanish Castle represents the warmer pre-’69 circuit and is equipped with low-gain silicon transistors that emulate the rich character of germanium with more stable and consistent operation. Carbon-composition resistors further round everything out for a sound that is reminiscent of vintage fuzz tones. This circuit is equipped with a bias circuit to dial in the desired flavor and cleans up effectively. On the left side, the post-’69 If 6 Was 9 circuit offers higher-gain silicon transistors for a more aggressive, buzzsaw-like grind. It features metal film resistors for tighter tolerances and an extended bias range for dialing in ripping gated fuzz textures as well as full-bodied snarl. Each side offers two toggle switches—Color and Input. The Color switch adjusts the EQ of its respective side, while the Input switch changes gain and bass values to adapt better to other pedals. Additionally, each side contains an internal switch that changes between Bold and Comp modes, offering different output levels and tonal characteristics. The pedal features the following specifications: \- True Bypass: Yes \- Power: 9-18V DC \- Current Draw: 10mA \- Dimensions: 4.67" x 3.68" x 1.18" (119mm x 94mm x 30mm) The Spanish Castle Dual Fuzz is designed to cater to both the fuzz-crazy and fuzz-curious musicians, offering a wide array of tonal possibilities and control options for creating unique fuzz textures.
