Flickinger Tone Boxes
The Caged Crow is an old school style distortion pedal.
Two BC183c BJTs (same transistor family as the original Si Fuzz F@ces) and a BS170 MOSFET (like most Flickinger Tone Boxes) create a terrific distortion pedal with fantastic control and dynamics.
Edgy and crunchy with good sustain and lots of volume boost to spare. The following instructions will help you get the most out of your Caged Crow.
VOL KNOB: This controls the overall output volume of your Caged Crow. 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!
HIGH KNOB: This is a passive low-pass tone control. The Caged Crow has been voiced to allow a strong treble boost. The 12 o'clock position is flat. Knob position below the center position will give you bassier sounds, and turning the knob to the right will boost your highs.
SUS KNOB: This knob controls the sustain and distortion added to your guitar signal. Fully counter-clockwise is the lowest setting, giving a nice gritty edge. Increase the control to achieve your desired sustain.
9V: Your Caged Crow can use a standard 9V battery. Also, the jack on the side 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.
