The power amp distortion.
The Siva is our take on the classic big-box IC/Op-Amp fuzz from the late 70s.
In traditional Zander fashion we’ve added a load of bells and whistles to increase it’s flexibility and overcome some of the common pitfalls of the original.
The two added ‘shift’ controls alter capacitance within the tone stack, allowing you to dial in all kinds of crazy EQ settings when combined with the regular tone control.
A switchable gain control, effectively giving you two pedals in one.
And last but not least, our signature 6 way clipping diode rotary switch that has become a staple of our fuzzes, overdrives and distortions. However, we’ve changed a few different options on this one, allowing either: six germanium, six silicon, six LED, asymmetrical germanium, asymmetrical silicon or no diodes to be placed in the circuit.
Please do not try to power this pedal with anything other than 9v, doing so will cause your shiny new pedal to stop working permanently, and no one wants that.
