Overview

A tower of fuzz, now with silent relay-based switching.

The Terminal is EarthQuaker Devices' take on the elusive vintage JAX fuzz. These units are increasingly hard to come by, and are better known by most as the Shin-Ei Companion Fuzz. The engineers sought to recreate the Companion Fuzz’s unique buzzy sound, and added “Voice” and “Treble” controls, along with 20 stories’ worth of output volume to erect the Terminal.

This version 2 adds silent relay-based switching.

The “Voice” control adjusts the Terminal’s midrange focus and overall frequency response. Clockwise you’ll hear vertigo-inducing upper mids with an almost nasal, cocked-wah quality. Counter-clockwise you’ll find enough low-mid thickness to make even your wildest Siamese Dreams come true.

The “Treble” knob controls the Terminal’s biting top end. This control is especially interactive with the “Voice” knob, so it’s anything but “set and forget.” At the low end of the dial, you’ll find muted, subdued fuzz tones that sit back in the mix and play nice. Crank it up, and you’ll hear searing blown-out buzzsaw treble sharp enough to cut glass.

The Terminal’s “Fuzz” control has a wide sweep for causing all sorts of mayhem. Keep the “Fuzz” low and you’ll find “separated, ”spitty garage tones, and plenty of “satisfaction,” as the Terminal just wants to be your dog. Take the “Fuzz” all the way to the top floor, and you’ll hear a thick, searing grind with a unique attack envelope and loads of sustain. Between these three interactive controls, you’ll find a wide range of fuzz tones at your disposal.

The Terminal is true-bypass, uses archaic all-analog audio circuitry, futuristic digital switching circuitry and is built one-at-a-time in Akron, Ohio, USA.
