Description

The Torsion is a monstrous versatile fuzz with a completely original design consisting of three gain stages, a noise gate and optimised tone controls.  Tonal options make the Torsion suitable for any style of rock or metal.

Like all Dirty Haggard Audio fuzzes, the Torsion includes low noise circuitry and components to make the fuzz experience a hum free one.  The Torsion fuzz is a secret weapon on stage or in the studio.

The Noise Gate control includes linear taper potentiometers, which smoothly increase the level of gating from zero to an overly gated signal with sputtering goodness.

For those who choose to leave the gate disengaged, do not fear.  The Torsion fuzz has an  aggressive low-pass filter at the power-supply input to virtually eliminate the 120Hz ripple frequency caused by some DC adapters.

The Torsion also includes a two stage RF rejection filter at the input stage to eliminate all external radio frequencies trying to mix down into your signal.  This prevents the Torsion from becoming a radio beacon for a nearby radio station or another piece of audio gear.

Unlike most fuzz pedals, The Torsion enables midrange frequencies to be adjusted and keep your tone in front of a band mix.  The tone circuitry in the Torsion gives you the classic mid scooped tones you love, but also allows you to flatten or boost the midrange frequencies.

With the midrange set to nine o'clock or above, the Tilt control allows you to attenuate the highs without giving you an unusably dark tone, or to just attenuate the lows while still sounding full. Get all the tones, not just a fraction of them.

The Gain and Gate controls are interactive to give a wide range of sputtery, voltage-starved Velcro type tones.

The Torsion's Volume control includes a built in output buffer with a high quality 10K 0hm impedance to ensure the next pedal or amplifier input is driven sufficiently.

Dirty Haggard Audio pedals are fuzz to their core.  This means that even with the Gain at zero, the Torsion will still fuzz.  The Gain control is a fine tune to the fuzz tone.  A great feature if you are just looking for the absolute best in fuzz, high gain and low noise.
