The TarPit Integrated Circuit Fuzz Machine is the latest version of Greer Amps. This pedal was developed out of a desire to recreate the sound and feel of a vintage muff style fuzz.
Based on the Vintage Big Muff Pi version, which uses two integrated circuits with some tweaks from Greer Amps (not the standard 4 transistor version), the Tarpit offers all the sounds you would expect from a muff style fuzz, and so much more.
The Tarpit is housed in a sturdy powder-coated aluminum case with printed graphics, designed by Nick DePartee (a great graphic designer and former guitarist with the band Kutless). We chose the best metallic blue powder coating we could find and had the graphics printed in black and white. The Tarpit features custom Oxblood knobs by Davies (these knobs are currently available in limited quantities).
When the sustain knob is set low, the Tarpit can get dark and nasty, with low gain, almost like a gate. Increasing the sustain knob has a double effect - the tarpit becomes slightly brighter, and fuzz, sustain and overtones increase. The wide tone control gives the Tarpit a new level of versatility. Turning the Tone Control down lowers the treble and raises the bass frequencies; turning the Tone Control up or down midway or slightly higher will allow the full guitar and bass frequencies to come out. If you really want to go crazy, slide the Tone control up and you'll get into some AM radio frequencies.
The volume pot has been selected to fade out a little later. We did this to give the user the possibility to get the great sustain and fuzz at lower volumes if needed... but don't worry, the Tarpit can get as loud as you need it!
The Tarpit is built like a tank. We use a custom made circuit board that is oversized so you don't have to worry about your pedal letting you down. The two integrated circuits are mounted in chip sockets, so if something should happen to the chips, they can easily be replaced.
