Erafuzz Civil War - Silicon Fuzz Machine



The Erafuzz Civil War was built to recreate David Gilmour guitar’s signature fuzz sound from The Division Bell era. This handmade unit includes multiple switch configurations to give you a superior control over your fuzz tone with great alternatives. The first three toggle switches give you access to some of the Gilmour’s special tone modifications, and the last two toggle switches control the mids EQ tones from scooped mid tones, to flat mids, to inclining mid tones. The true-bypass footswitch preserves the guitar sound, and the extra point to point soldering wiring connection on the copper stripboard ensures a full circuit performance. It operates with a 9V carbon-zinc battery or with a standard (negative pin) 9V external power supply.
