The Algal Bloom V2 plus a Clean Volume knob! Blend in cleans or whatever's in front of it. Great for bass, blending fuzzes, or for adding even more mass, definition, and cleanness to your tone.
The Algal Bloom is a harmonically rich, wide-range fuzz! From mellow to gritty overdrivey tones, to beautifully
thick fuzz, to crunch, crust, and throaty fuzz roars! V2 adds an all-new Choke toggle that turns the Algal Bloom
into a Harmful Algal Bloom, a raunchier mode that goes from dying to crusty, to crunchy, to whiplash! A new 3-
way filter toggle lets you smooth clipping and highs for ultimate control.
The Algal Bloom is known for its open tone and many chord-friendly settings, with fantastic definition and note-
separation, even on high gain settings. The controls are uniquely interactive for incredible range. The pedal has a
unique sound and circuit, but also expands on some classic tones that fuzz enthusiasts will love. A workhorse of a
classicish, garagey, all-around capital F Fuzz.
• Gain: Gain adjustment and clean-up! As you back it off, it cleans up your fuzz, also adding a hint of sputter and
fizzle. Hard right is full-on!
• Bloom (Fuzz): Expands and pushes your fuzz tone, adding gain, sustain, and definition. Hard right is maxed out...a
unique, throaty, brash-yet-full tone! 12 o'clock is its "home setting," for thick fuzz tone!
• Power: Controls the flow of power to the circuit, altering response, heft, and gain (slight scratch is normal, as
circuit adjusts to voltage change).
• Level: Your master volume control.
• Choke / HAB Toggle: A complete revision on the concept Choke Toggle, letting you dial in whiplash, crunch, crud,
crust, dying, and dead.
• Filter (3-way):
1) Middle: the unfiltered Algal Bloom you know.
2)Up: slightly smoothed highs, removing a bit of clipping and fizz activity from the highs.
3)Down: smoothed and dampened.
