To say there are a lot of ‘Big M’ circuits out there would be an understatement. However, despite over 50 years of revisions and reissues, the basic circuit has always stayed pretty much the same (with the notable exception of op amp alternatives like the Zander Circuitry Siva. The reason versions sound different is almost entirely down to the different parts used and flavour added to the mix.
That’s where the inspiration for the American Geek came from. Zander Circuitry have taken the bones of the legend and reanimated them with multiple clipping options and precise control over the EQ, giving flexibility and freedom to dial in the ultimate tone.
EQ is the secret that elevates these types of pedals from good to great. So, just like the Zander Circuitry op amp version, the Siva, the American Geek is loaded with two extra Shift controls that alter the capacitance of the tone stack. This affects the filter sweep and cut off giving more control and creativity with sounds that this circuit normally cannot achieve.
The American Geek includes a signature diode rotary switch, which selects one of eight different clipping types:
If high gain is your thing, the American Geek includes a Blast footswitch that maximises the drive and activates a second volume control for seamless transitions between low and high gain sounds.
