My Zvex 59 sound broke just before a gig, so I borrowed this from the drummer in my band (who is also a guitarist). Not only did it get me through that gig, it did the imploding Tweed amp sound better than the Zvex. Maybe not more realistic, but who cares. I immediately bought my own. This one is not just a fuzz, it goes from subtle, tweedy breakup to velcro fuzz to doomsday. I no longer have a conventional overdrive on my board, just this, a Tonebender Mk1 clone, and a Blue Clipper clone (VFE The Triplet). I can't believe how something so cheap can be this good. But it is, and then some.
The DOD Carcosa Fuzz is a doorway into an alternate fuzz universe, where classic tones of legend coexist with splattered and shattered Pollock abstractions. Combining the Carcosa's wide-ranging AFTER bias control with two toggle positions creates tones that range from porcine fatness to dessicated shards. This versatility makes the Carcosa Fuzz a good companion for dirty or clean amps. True bypass, tons of output, and the visage of the King in Yellow sets the stage for fuzzy madness.
The DOD Carcosa Fuzz has an exaggerated mid-range and treble character that help it stand out in a mix. It has been designed to cut through a dense and heavy band but still have great note articulation with chords. However, when extreme bias (AFTER) ranges are selected many wild and over-the-top sounds are possible.
