is one of the first pedals to use one germanium and one silicon transistor in the classic Fuzz Face circuit.
CC Hybrid is a stand-alone pedal that contains the same Silicon/Germanium fuzz face circuit as the original Captain Coconut and Captain Coconut2. To my knowledge, it’s the first example of a commercially available pedal to use one germanium and one silicon transistor in the classic Fuzz Face circuit. It combines the warm, dark organic tone of germanium with the clarity and sustain of silicon. CC Hybrid gives you the best of both. It's now available as a standard Foxrox product.
Volume - Set the volume you like, compensate for level changes when adjusting the Grit and Fuzz controls.
Fuzz - Controls the amount of gain in the circuit. Typical setting is all the way up, or backed off a little.
Grit - controls bias voltage to the transistors. This lets you go from smooth to choppy and everything in between. Typical setting is 11:00. Past the 2:00 setting the sound takes on a restricted, gated quality. The extreme range of the Grit control is effected by the voltage coming into the pedal. Above 9Volts, grit stays smooth at the max setting. Below 9Volts, grit can sound choppy at gated as low as the 1:00 setting. If you notice this - don’t worry, there’s nothing wrong with the pedal! Just set it for the sound you like.
Input trim - There's a trimmer inside for backing the input level down a little. Just like having your guitar volume turned down. It’s preset all the way up.
