I'm really diggin' this one: The sound clips on the Phoenix Custom Electronics site only offer a glimpse of what it's capable of and really don't do it justice IMO. It's based on the Vox Tonebender, which I know absolutely nothing about, so I can't say whether or not it's a faithful reproduction, sorry. This is the only germanium fuzz I've ever had that cleans up as well as(maybe even a little better than) my Sun Face NKT, yet it has way more available gain and the controls offer a lot of flexibility. It's a little bright so it's not going to work well with some amps, but into the right amp it's just killer. The fuzz control has a broad range and the Lady Stardust can get raspy and splatty, in a good way, when you crank it up. The range control is for dialing in some low end should you need it. It works really well, adds low end without making it muddy. The ohm control is supposed to make it work with a wah in front of it. I haven't played with this feature yet as I'm not much of a wah user. At full clockwise it's out of the circuit. This is my second PCE pedal. My first was the Ranger treble booster and that's a really nice pedal too. Very high quality stuff, reasonably priced and tons of fun.
