THE SNITCH IS A RAT-INSPIRED, HIGH GAIN DISTORTION THAT WILL SATISFY EVERYONE FROM 90S KIDS TO METALHEADS. HAND ASSEMBLED USING CARBON FILM RESISTORS, WIMA AND NICHICON CAPACITORS, AND A LO-FI TEXAS INSTRUMENTS OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIER FOR GAIN, THE SNITCH HAS THE VINTAGE GRIT YOU’D EXPECT. THE DIODES SWITCH ALLOWS YOU TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THREE DISTINCT VOICINGS – SILICON FOR THE TRADITIONAL SOUND, LEDS FOR TURBOCHARGED RIFFS, AND SURPLUS SOVIET GERMANIUM FOR WHEN YOU’RE FEELING DIRTY.

CONTROLS:

  • DISTORTION: ADJUSTING THIS SETTING INCREASES THE OVERALL GAIN OF THE CIRCUIT BEFORE THE CLIPPING STAGE.
  • FILTER: THE FILTER CONTROL IS A VARIABLE LOW-PASS FILTER USED TO CONTROL THE TONE OF THE EFFECT.
  • VOLUME: ADJUSTING THIS SETTING CHANGES THE FINAL OUTPUT OF THE EFFECT.
  • DIODES: THE DIODES SWITCH SELECTS ONE OF THREE DIODE PAIRS USED IN THE CLIPPING STAGE. IN THE UP POSITION, STANDARD SILICON DIODES ARE USED. IN THE MIDDLE POSITION, LEDS ARE USED. IN THE DOWN POSITION, GERMANIUM DIODES ARE USED.
