Fredric Effects Harmonic Percolator - 70s Interfax Harmonic Percolator Clone

Product Description

Fast FREE U.S. Shipping!

Fredric Effects are popular British guitar pedals from the UK, handmade in North London. Their Harmonic Percolator clone is an improved clone of the Interfax Harmonic Percolator, an oddball overdrive/distortion pedal from the 1970s, popularized by Steve Albini of Shellac.

____________________________________

Before we get way into their Harmonic Percolator clone, the next 2 paragraphs simplify the difference between the Fredric Effects Harmonic Percolator and their Utility Perkolator:

Fredric Effects Harmonic Percolator - this clone is the 100% vintage correct circuit, with the hard-to-find, new-old-stock vintage components. It has the unpredictability of the vintage Harmonic Percolators on which it is based, with a raucous edge to the sound, and a fizzy decay note.
 
Fredric Effects Utility Perkolator - this is the result of experimenting with the HP circuit for a few years. It uses lower leakage, old stock USSR germanium transistors, and incorporates a very subtle low pass filter, which takes the fizz out of the decay and makes it generally a "better behaved" Harmonic Percolator. However, it is still capable of some great, full-on fuzz sounds!

____________________________________

The Fredric Effects Harmonic Percolator clone is built to the verified correct schematic and is a 100% accurate clone of the sought-after original, only with the addition of a switch to offer three different clipping options which greatly adds to the versatility of the effect.

This pedal usees the correct vintage transitors (NOS 2N404 Germanium and 2N3565 Silicon) and 1N695 diodes - all the hard-to-find parts of the originals, but in a modern pedalboard friendly package, with DC power, LED indicator and normal rotary pots instead of sliders. You have the most accurate Harmonic Percolator clone possible without sacrificing usability.

CONTROLS:

Harmonics:
Controls the gain of the circuit.

Balance:
Controls the overall volume of the effect.

Switch:
Selects 3 diode clipping options.
Up - Silicon clipping for a smoother sound.
Down - Germanium clipping (like the original Harmonic Percolator) for a grittier sound.
Middle - No clipping, for a more open and less "fuzz" sound.
The overall volume will be higher with no signal clipping selected.

____________________________________

SPECS:

Jacks:
Input (from your guitar) on the right. Output (to your amp) on the left.
