Tribute Audio Designs The Tramp - 2 Transistor Fuzz


Tribute Audio Designs

…she’s been around the block, but still knocks ‘em out!...

The Tramp is a tribute to the classic Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face which was a staple of 60s and 70s rock and psychedelia for artists like Jimi Hendrix, and David Gilmour (Pink Floyd).

The Tramp uses individually tested, gain matched pairs of transistors to nail the classic tones. Additionally, the transistors are exclusively very low gain silicon type to more closely mimic the “softness” of the classic germanium transistors of the 60s – but without the hassles of temperature sensitivity and bias drift that the originals had.

The controls of The Tramp include a “pre-gain” to allow the player to match the output of their guitar’s pickups – allowing even humbucker pickups to be cleaned up to a sparkling grit using only the volume knob of the guitar. The Bias control allows The Tramp to go from smooth singing lead tones to spluttery gated sounds, increasing the versatility of this pedal. Finally, The Tramp has a switch that takes the sound from the classic bass-heavy signal to a more focussed tone that can cut through a full band the way the original never could. This monster has sustain for days!

The Tramp is without a doubt one of the most versatile Fuzzers available.
