What We Think

Taking the Angry Sparrow to the next level with the addition of the tone stack EQ.  The already classic effects provided in the original sparrow now has a beefier customizable EQ section.  Time to dial in truly unique beefed up fuzz settings! Or stick with the original for simple operation.  They both have essential uses!  Call or email us for details and opinions!

Manufacturer's Description from Flickinger

Unlike other fuzz effects that have several stages of transistors with clipping diodes cascaded into one another, the Angry Sparrow Tone Box has only one clipping stage.  The result is a more musical fuzz tone that is versatile and dynamic.  The controls are pretty self-explanatory, however here are some tips for getting the most out of the device.


VOLUME:

This controls the overall output volume of your Angry Sparrow.  Be aware, this device is capable of a very large volume boost to your signal.  Make sure not to overload other effects or your amplifier!  There is an internal trim-pot that can be set to reduce the maximum volume of your pedal.  It is preset to provide zero reduction.  Remove the back and use a small screwdriver to adjust it if you wish.



GAIN:

Much time and effort was put into exactly how the gain control functions.  At the lowest (counter-clockwise) settings, there will be very little change from your original sound, only a little compression and a warming of the tone.  You can set the volume higher and use the pedal as a “warm-boost.”  As you increase the gain, you will find dozens of musical overdrive/distortion/fuzz tones that work with more complicated chords and harmonies than you would expect from a circuit of this type.


TONE STACK EQ: tone-stack is a three band passive EQ that is interactive.  In order to get the results you want, keep in mind that the controls only subtract from the signal.  The tone-stack is basically removed from the circuit with all controls at full clockwise.  Also, the Middle control will assume more of the high and low frequencies as you reduce the Treble and Bass controls.  Think of what frequencies you want to add, and reduce the other controls.


9V:

Your Angry Sparrow can use a standard 9V battery, also the jack on the rear accepts a standard 2.1mm (BOSS type) AC adapter.  Make sure the center pin is negative.  Using the wrong polarity will not harm the pedal, however it will not function.
