Finally! The best
of both worlds - fuzz and overdrive - in a single pedal! Freud provides
the perfect cure for fuzz sounding thin and stark by adding a built-in
overdrive at the end of a classic FF fuzz circuit. A versatile pedal,
Pink Freud goes from screaming fuzz to shimmering clean, all with
a simple roll-off of your guitar's volume knob.

we appreciate our good friend Gearmanndude showcasing the Freud, setting
his DrZ to a slight crunch - while the proper setting for a conventional
fuzz pedal - didn't really do it justice here. By effectively having
now two crunch ODs in series, this particular demo sounded a tad over-the-top
IOHO. At the 5:37 mark you hear perhaps a closer taste of its intended
tone when GMD briefly backs off his guitar volume. Freud's strength
comes from sounding like a premium OD (based on a Kalamazoo/Klon type
OD sound) when your guitar's volume is turned down to around 6-8 but
then like a classic full-sounding FF fuzz with the guitar at 10. This
is not your typical fuzz, but a unique hybrid expressly designed to
sound good straight out of the pedal with no additional amp "doctoring"
needed - pardon the pun.
