Whether in an attempt to capture the sounds of jet engines roaring overhead, trying hard to tear speaker cones to shreds or detonating vacuum sealed glass bombs inside of amplifiers on the brink of meltdown, the Univox Super Fuzz has been essential to myself and countless others for championing that proverbial wall of sound since its original release in the late 1960s.
Named after a class of jet propulsion fuel, the JP-1A is the Mile End Effects’ take on a well loved, often recreated and legendary fuzz circuit, paying homage to that jaw dropping explosion of sound and adding to the sonic manifesto that we have always unwaveringly stood by.
In addition to the standard and very aggressive Super Fuzz sound, a switchable active Baxandall Tone Stack, EQ and PreAmp was implemented to the JP-1A, offering 12dB of boost or cut in the tone controls as well as up to a 24dB boost in output volume (controllable via an internal trim pot). A common complaint with the original Super Fuzz is a perceived volume drop when the effect is engaged. This is due to a sudden shift in frequency response which often amounts to “getting lost in the mix” and is a concern that has been rectified with these added tone and boost options.
Originally released as the limited run ‘Don’t Think You Can Escape Your Purpose’, it is with great excitement that we get to share this updated and now permanent addition to the family which sounds every bit as wonderful as you might expect it to.
