The first release in the new PCB based Daughterboard series, built entirely by Izzy Reeves. 

A single transistor fuzz, although the Darlington Flyer is switchable between two very different sounding transistors. One is a 1979 Motorola MPSA013 Darlington for smooth, compressed sustain and the other is a late 80s Philips Silverface BC546 for a much more open, gritty and slightly gated feel.

Fixed fuzz with a volume and fat / skinny switch.

Honestly it's a beast.

Izzy builds these fuzz pedals in our garden workshop in Northamptonshire UK. This includes painting, drilling, and screen printing the design onto the enclosures. Izzy populates the vintage style circuit board with the finest components. We finish the entire pedal to a standard that looks as good inside, as it sounds on the outside. It might be covered up but when you're in that moment you KNOW the mojo you have under the hood.

Please be aware, these are totally hand built and so there might be some slight cosmetic variation between each pedal. Toneally, I play each one to make sure they sound as good as the first one, before signing off, no tone generator, no gadgets - just a telecaster and my ears.

Please note, all my silicon pedals have a boss style 2.1 center negative DC jack only, there is no battery snap. silicon transistors are not sensitive to DC supply type unlike their germainium counterparts.
