TWO

To celebrate our second release, we are offering a 15% discount if both ONE and TWO are ordered at the same time. If you have purchased ONE in the last two weeks, feel free to use the code to get TWO and put a note in your order. If you attempt to use the code for a single product otherwise, your order will be cancelled. Code: "1.5". You know, because the average of ONE and TWO is 1.5....

 

TWO is the second product offering from Tape Audio Co. At its heart is a unique and novel set of transistor distortion/gain circuits providing the best of both worlds: one Silicon, one Germanium. We used simple, discrete transistor gain topology in both sections to achieve a dynamic, special, and interesting drive pedal that covers a lot of ground. You can do light coloring of your tone, medium grit and bite, and searing distortion bordering on fuzz. The EQ is balanced, so despite having no tone controls, you'll find yourself focusing on the level of the three gain-based controls to dial in your sound. Demonstration videos from Demos In The Dark, Collector//Emitter, Megan Lippi, NoiseGenerator, and William John Bennett III coming 5/13/2022. Demonstration from Andy Martin coming in June.

  • High quality 9v, regulated and filtered DC power supply required (2.1mm tip, center negative)
  • Pre controls the Germanium circuit output going into the Silicon circuit
  • Gain controls the color and character of the Silicon circuit
  • Master controls overall volume
  • NOS Carbon Comp resistors
  • NOS Philips, Sprague, GE capacitors (or similar)
  • NOS Germanium transistor
  • Switchcraft and Lumberg jacks
  • NOS Germanium diodes
  • Solid machined aluminum knobs
  • Internal trim pots for bias and clipping diode level on Germanium section of the circuit

ONE

ONE is the first product for Tape Audio Co. We spent months dialing it in and getting feedback from fuzz friends and love how it adds texture and color while maintaining simplicity. With two basic controls (volume and compression), and a switch to toggle between two EQ settings, you have a simple, yet effective fuzz to elevate your dirt repertoire. Master controls the overall output of the effect, which is a lot, and Comp controls the compression characteristics of the diode clipping section of the circuit. Even though it's a balls to the wall fuzz, you have a lot of control and it's very interactive with your guitar volume control. 

  • High quality 9v, regulated and filtered DC power supply required (2.1mm barrel tip, center negative)
  • Master controls overall volume
  • Comp controls the compression characteristic of the clipping diodes (compressed to big, open, and tight)
  • Light/Dark controls the EQ shape of the effect
  • Carbon Comp resistors
  • NOS Philips, Sprague, Kemet capacitors (or similar)
  • Switchcraft and Lumberg jacks
  • NOS diodes
  • Bourns slide potentiometers
  • NOS  A&H rocker switch
