    Pigtronix

    Three original flavors of outrageously FAT analog distortion.

    The Pigtronix OFO Disnortion stomp box features a touch sensitive Overdrive, Fuzz with 6 different filters and frequency-doubling, Octava. Each effect is an original design and can each be used independently or in combinations to forge a tremendous range of musically responsive distortion sounds. The unique magic of the Pigtronix OFO Disnortion is parallel Fuzz and Overdrive, allowing you to pile on the gain without sacrificing clarity, dynamic response, punch or low end. Well voiced tone and shape controls allow you to focus each effect on its own frequency range. The Octava effects pedal is wired in series before the Overdrive and Fuzz, allowing the guitar pedal to produce a unique type of gated, gnarly grind that is absolutely devastating. A buffered output provides a clean signal for parallel processing or direct recording.

    Overdrive—There has never been an Overdrive quite like this. The Pigtronix Overdrive responds to the dynamics of your playing using a proprietary, 5-stage gain architecture that retains the natural tone of your instrument, while gradually breaking up as you play louder. The circuit is so touch sensitive, it has been described as " . . . more tube than tube." You must hear it to believe it! From clean or gritty boost right up through Plexi roar, the Pigtronix Overdrive is the most musical overdrive ever made.

    Fuzz—Massive gain, full-bodied sustain, and flexible tone shapes define the fuzz effect. Pigtronix's unique version of diode-clipping provides plenty of compression and controllable feedback while preserving the dynamics of your playing style. The rotary tone control switch provides 6 musical EQ curves: Bass, Scoop, Treble, Smooth, F.A.T., and Full Range. The Pigtronix fuzz can go from clean boost to hair raising, shred fisted, freak-out pandemonium!

    Octava—This frequency doubler effect makes the notes you play sound one octave up. A filter control allows you to achieve singing octave up tones without adjusting your guitar's tone control. Stable intervals such as 4ths and power chords result in knarly, tweezed out grind, while other intervals create ring-modulator textures in all registers. The Octava is wired in series with the other 2 effects for harmonic filled lead tones and outlandishly bizarre crunch. Combine the Octava with both fuzz + overdrive and... fuggettaboutit!

      Best Uses

        Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

        I use this as the front end to my rig, with a tuner on the direct out. The overdrive has a wonderful sparkle and, as many mention, is very touch sensitive. The overdrive is more modern to my ears than other pedals; it doesn't sound quite like anything else I know. The amplifier on the overdrive channel is very clean/transparent, so it makes a great boost. Love the Octava with the bridge pickup of my Tele. The box is rather wide, but covers 3 effects with no cables or gaps, so not an issue for me. Also, the 3 LEDs look cool!

        Wasn't For Me

        By Kevin

        from Florida

        Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

        I was unable to get one usable tone. I love Pigtronix's products, their customer support is first class all the way. I own a OCD & a Keeley Java Boost & I found their tones just so much better.
        I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority about this pedal. I recommend you try one out & see for your self. I'm returning it, but I still love Pigtronix's as a company.
        I was looking for a Ovtava & came across this pedal & was impressed with the number of effects in one pedal. You can stack up the effects as well. There's lots of control over the effects.
        I also own Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone & delay. They are all well made. Some well known stars are using this box & rave about it.
        For the price you get a Octava, Fuzz/Distortion, and a Overdrive with a lot of controls. I'd say that's a lot for the money.

        OD by itself is worth the Price

        Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

        I purchased this for the Octava Effect and because I am a bit of a fuzz addict, but the Overdrive is Awesome: Has some outstanding tone and disables the tone control when you crank it to full: Very dynamic, cleans up perfectly works well with boosts and other overdrives and fuzzes. I have run this with a Fuzzhugger White Spider, and run this into my Empress ParaEQ slamming the front of an amp: It works well with both.The OD is so Good I sold my Dano Wasabi/ Rocktron Austin Gold / and Jekkyl and HydeThe Fuzz is awesome in it's own right: Won't replace your typical super fuzz pedals, but has a nice sound. The Way it is linked to the OD and the multiple EQ settings make it very useable: I like to set it on the setting that only has highend and use it as a top boost with the OD.The Octave effect is similar to most of the old upper octave effects. Works best on the neck pickup with the tone back a bit, but it is awesome and sweet for single note lines and riffs.Not a polyphonic effect and not smooth, but it isn't designed to be.In total this pedal offers 3 very awesome sounds in one monster indestructable box. Even if you just wanted the best possible overdrive tones, you could spend more than the cost of this whole unit and come up very disapointed.Never leaving my pedal board. and If it broke I would get another one.

        3in1 or 3 at once

        By Fat Foot

        from Hughson, CA

        Comments about Pigtronix OFO Disnortion FX Pedal:

        I've been using this pedal for about 18 months. The overdrive section on this pedal is very good, and VERY dynamic... play soft for cleaner tones (even on higher gain settings), play hard and teeth emerge. The fuzz section is also very good, although not particularly "fuzzy". It seems more like distortion in my opinion... similar to the yellow MXR, but also still very dynamic and cleans up well with your guitar's volume. Lower the gain setting and you can use it as a clean volume boost for the overdrive, with a preset EQ curve (6 options). I prefer the mid-boost and use it for lead work. The octave section is a whole other animal, and makes for some tasty single note lines... but do steer clear of chromatic runs. It does some crazy stuff with uneven harmonics (which some may like). This thing is definately built like a tank and is DEAD QUIET, even in higher gain settings. My only complaint is this. I am the singer and only guitarist in my band, and seem to suffer from anvil foot syndrome... making most of my switches out of the corner of my eye, stomping two or even three buttons at once, unfortunately I'm usually aiming for just one. Clearly Pigtronix can not be faulted for this. But for me, I think single function pedals better serve my needs... at least when playing live. Peace!!
