Tuttle Custom Classic S + Caroline Shigeharu IC Fuzz Octave Pedal

In this video Sound Pure electric guitar specialist Eddie Berman tests out the Michael Tuttle Custom Classic S 2-Tone Burst HSS #418 with a Caroline Guitar Company Shigeharu IC Fuzz/Octave Pedal, a Strymon El Capistan - dTape Delay Effect Pedal, a Suhr Bella Reverb Head and a Suhr Bella 1x12 Cabinet.

Manufacturer's Description from Caroline Pedals

Using a cascading hybrid of op-amp and BC184 transistor gain stages, Shigeharu provides all the sweet singing sustain and massive flamethrower gain you crave, but with unprecedented clarity, improved punch and definition, and consistent performance wherever it sits in your signal chain - even after buffers or wireless units. Combine that with the parallel octave-up voiced fuzz available on demand with the Havoc* stomp and you have a whole lot of nasty right here. 

Two extra controls reside inside the pedal - a bias/gate control for dialing up broken, spitty sounds, and a slide switch that locks the octave-up "on" and converts the momentary to a kill/mute switch. 

Designed in collaboration with our friend John Snyder at Electronic Audio Experiments, because this thing was fearsome enough to compel us to seek a second opinion.

About Manufacturer

We care because we know you do. The innovative music industry companies of the 1970s and ’80s hand crafted products that could last forever, were easy to maintain, could survive the hazards of the road, and sounded great. Now, imagine if one of those companies opened a satellite office in Columbia, S.C. and never bothered to tell that office that they went out of business or decided to offshore everything. Your pedal is built by touring and former pros at our “small batch distortery” who are crazy about classic pedals and the great work of our competitors. That being said, we love ours even more. Everything we have designed and will design begins as something we wished was out there for our own setups. After a LOT of revising, it becomes worthy of yours.

We had a million reasons to decide against doing this, just like you have a million excuses not to rock out. The same bravery that motivated you to take up playing is what motivated us to start building our first prototypes. Like you, we believe in genuine rock and roll fun, danger, courage, passion, commitment, and the thrill of hearing and seeing what you have dared to dream made real. These are the values that we share with our customers, and we are committed to doing our part towards getting you the most out of that experience. The rest is up to you.

While we are often asked if our start-up will become a success, we believe that every pedal we get to make for our customers is a success. Our work is dreamed, designed, and created in Columbia, South Carolina. We are proud that every pedal is hand-wired here in the USA, and we are also proud to say that we are committed to top-notch customer service and getting you fired up to play music.
