Himmelstrutz Fetto C-Luxe - Stout Of The Art

Various

Himmelstrutz Elektro Art

History

Once upon a time Himmelstrutz Elektro Art designed and made a pedal named FETTO Deluxe. This pedal came to be kind of a big brother of FETTO Standard and got popular by guitar players with higher wishes and healthy demands.

From 2007-2009 FETTO Deluxe was made in about 100 copies and was then abruptly discontinued. The reasons for this is still a mystery.

Present

Due to a number of inquiries and a bit of inspiration, the mysteriously named FETTO C-Luxe was born out of the ashes of the FETTO Deluxe. It brings back the much missed 'Core' control, allowing the user to sweep the voltage of the pedal from 6 volts to 22 volts, all while using a standard 9 volts battery or plug. Additionally, it maintains that original Deluxe voice that is capable of being more 'modern' sounding than the other pedals in the FETTO lineup while still retaining all the qualities that make them special: perfect string separation, clarity, unparalleled dynamics, and amplike, organic sound.

Controls

  • Drive—Overdrive/Distortion control
  • Tone—Tone control
  • Core—Uncompression/Power control—like comparing tube amps from 20 watts w. tube rectifier to 180 watts w. diode rectifier
  • Volume—as loud as you'll ever need
  • Mid—mid character (3 way toggle)
  • Presence—more or less higher frequencies (3 way toggle)
  • GIMME—true bypass switching

Thanks to the Mid and Bright switches difficult amps (ala Fender) can also get Great Distortion Anywhere... Anytime. Internal controls for Bass, Gain(s), and Global Drive are of course included in this peerless gadget.

Character

Perfect string separation, all the way from smooth overdrive into an unusual punchy distortion landscape. Forget about losing the character of your instrument or amplifier. Designed to match the volume control on your guitar perfectly. Most pedals sounds just like a pedal. Not the case with the FETTO's—they sound and feel like an extension of your amp. For those who need everything from almost clean into heavy, punchy heaven here we go—no compromises!
