Introducing the Marsling Octafuzzdrive - a pedal as distinctive as its sound. The Beings at IAM take a modern spin on the discontinued '70s era fOXX, enhanced with two interstellar modifications. First, the octave-up effect is now at your feet, offering on-the-fly versatility with a footswitch. Additionally, a tone control toggle switch has been incorporated, empowering players to select from three unique tonal profiles. The Marsling stands out as the epitome of versatility within the Interstellar galaxy.
The Marsling Octafuzzdrive is a recreation of the fOXX Tone Machine, first released in 1971 and discontinued in 1978. The Tone Machine is a thick fuzz that uses a phase splitter and complementary rectifier to create an octave overtone.
The Tone Machine has a lot in common with the Fender Blender, but with a more pronounced octave and smoother tone, as well as the ability to disable the octave by turning off half of the phase splitter. And the tone is not unlike the Superfuzz, although it uses a different method of octave generation to get there.
The Marsling is faithful to the original, but with two added modifications. First, the octave switch for octave up is on a footswitch for on and off capabilities instead of a toggle switch.
The second modification is to the tone control. The tone control of the original is somewhat similar to the Big Muff, but many people find it’s difficult to get good sounds from the treble side of the rotation. By increasing the value of the treble-side tone capacitor, it improves the usability. A switch has been added to let you choose between two different capacitors in addition to the original.
Here’s what you get with this out-of-this-world pedal:
* Octave up footswitch
* Fuzz only footswitch
* Midrange toggle switch for varied tonality
* Top mounted jacks to save precious board space
* Refined all-analog circuit design
* 9V Powered (Battery or Power Supply Not Included)
SONIC MARAUDERS - THE MARSLING'S STORY
The Chronicle of the Marsling's: An Ominous Symphony
In the darkest corners of the galaxial veil, emerged a being of unparalleled intellectual prowess—the Marsling. Born not just of one planet's embrace, but cast into existence amidst the swirling chaos of interstellar nebulas, the Marsling harbored a thirst for power that transcended planetary bounds.
In the early epochs of their existence, Marslings wandered through the galaxies, a nomad of the void, driven by a sinister purpose. Their cosmic quest was not one of creation but of subversion, seeking out the pinnacle of technological marvels across worlds and pilfering them to serve their nefarious ends.
World after world fell victim to the Marsling's insidious raids. From the hyper-forges of the Yetican system to the quantum resonance fields on the edge of Klip league space, no technological marvel was safe from their grasp. With an intellect rivaled only by the cosmic anomalies they traversed, the Marsling's twisted each innovation into a tool for their dark designs.
It was on the desolate plains of their distant red planet that the Marsling's unearthed the forbidden secrets of a inter-dimensional relic. Ethereal power—capable of bending reality itself was now at their fingertips. The Marsling's seized this forbidden lore, melding it with other stolen tech to create the sinister Octafuzzdrive, a device that echoed with the stolen voices of countless worlds.
The Marsling's legacy became one of discord, a symphony of stolen tones reverberating across the cosmos. Their malevolent creation, the Marsling Octafuzzdrive, encapsulates the twisted genius of a cosmic marauder, ready to unleash its dark fuzzoctaves upon anyone brave enough to wield it. Beware, for within its depths lies not just the power to alter tone but the echoes of the Marsling's conquest—a haunting tribute to the worlds that fell beneath their shadow.
