Distorta Destructo

The Distorta Destructo is one pedal by CopperGear that lives up to its name in spades. The Destructo is a silicon fuzz pedal designed using the Distorta Obscura. What makes it unique is that it lets you play around with the transistors biasing in the small range where they're just starting to turn on. The Distorta Destructo was built to truly destroy and deconstruct your sound.

The Degree(gain) knob gives you a full range silicon fuzz effect from nearly clean to scathing screech. Add to that the specially designed bias control to take your fuzz from norm to near synth like quality and beyond. Spitting, sputtering, and gate like stuttering abound. We still haven't heard all the gritty permutations this pedal is capable of, and we built the darn thing. All we can say is this pedal is down right nasty, and will take your head off given half a chance.

At CopperGear we don't try to craft any specific sound. We leave that up to you. So we don't lock our pedals down to stop them from oscillating or squealing if they're cranked or from whatever you do to them. We want you to be able to play with that grey area if you want to. Because you never know what you'll come up with.

The Distorta Destructo features:
  • Acid etched 20 gauge copper
  • Hand cut and stained solid wood sides
  • Recessed input and output jacks
  • Hardened knob rails
  • Volume, Degree(gain), and Bias controls
  • Heavy duty true bypass stomp switch
  • Heavy duty center positive 2.1mm power jack
  • 9v battery adapter cable

Things to know about CopperGear pedals:
All of our pedals are handmade from the ground up. The circuits, copper, wood, and leather are all worked by hand. The knob rails protect the knobs and your settings from feet stomping on the pedal. The recessed jacks help protect your cables and jacks. The center positive power jacks on our pedals will not work with standard pedal power supplies. As most pedals on the market are center negative. So care must be taken when trying to use other power supplies.

Since all devices are handmade when you order them build times can take up to 4 weeks not including shipping times. Refunds are only offered for manufacturing defects that stop normal operation of device. So make sure this is what you want before ordering. For customizations and/or modifications to standard designs please contact us before ordering.
