The Piccolo Falsetto is a multi-stage hybrid germanium overdrive featuring a MOSFET

buffer/boost, a passive pickup simulator and a germanium gain stage. Built entirely by hand in Columbus, Ohio, the Piccolo Falsetto features military grade resistors and hand selected surplus parts including the germanium boost transistor and silver Mica capacitors in several locations. The Piccolo is buffered at both input and output, so it can be placed anywhere in the pedal chain. 

CONTROLS:

  • TONE: DESIGNED LIKE THE TONE CONTROL ON A GUITAR, ALLOWS THE USER TO FINE TUNE THE TONE OF THE PEDAL.
  • SUSTAIN: CONTROLS THE SIGNAL LEVEL PASSING INTO THE CORE BOOST STAGE.
  • VOICE SWITCH: IN THE DOWN POSITION, THE PEDAL REACTS LIKE SINGLE COIL PICKUPS. IN THE UP POSITION, THE PEDAL REACTS MORE LIKE HUMBUCKERS. ALSO MATCHES THE TONE CAPACITOR TO THE VOICING.
  • BOOST: CONTROLS THE VOLUME OF THE GERMANIUM BOOST STAGE AT THE CORE OF THE PICCOLO FALSETTO. INDIRECTLY ACTS AS THE FINAL VOLUME.
  • FILTER: SELECT FROM FOUR FILTER SETTINGS (CLOCKWISE FROM LEFT): FULL BAND, LOW-MID THROUGH TREBLE, MID AND TREBLE, TREBLE.
  • PRESSURE: (INTERNAL) CHANGES THE INPUT STAGE FROM A SIMPLE BUFFER (COUNTER-CLOCKWISE) TO A BOOST. SET TO ROUGHLY NOON ON MOST UNITS DURING ASSEMBLY.
  • BIAS: (INTERNAL) ESTABLISHES THE BIAS POINT ON THE GERMANIUM TRANSISTOR. SET DURING ASSEMBLY AND SHOULD NOT NEED ADJUSTMENT DURING REGULAR USE.

SIGNAL CHAIN: TRUE BYPASS SWITCHING WITH MONO INPUT AND OUTPUT. LUMBERG AUDIO AND DC POWER JACKS.
