The Suppa Phat Phuk is designed to be a colored boost pedal that allows you to fine tune exactly how you want the boost to interact with your pickups and amp. The response of this pedals relies heavily on the biasing of the germanium transistor at its heart. The amount of clean or dirty tones the pedal produces will vary depending on how much you starve or feed the pedal its voltage.

One of the handy things about the bias knob is that it will allow you to compensate for temperature changes that can sometimes effect germanium transistors. But please be aware: The Suppa Phat Phuk is not an overdrive pedal in itself. The pedal can cause your amp to overdrive in a very natural way depending on how hard you peg the front end of your amp, but the pedal itself is not designed as an overdrive. Why mention this? Because this means that the Bias knob IS NOT a drive/distortion knob. By the look and feel of the pedal you may be thinking that the bias will simply adjust how much distortion is produced. While this is true to a certain extent, any distortion heard is simply the germanium transistor reacting to how it is biased. But there is a key difference here. By allowing external biasing of the pedal, that means that all of the settings aren’t going to sound great with all guitars.

Using a super high output pickup, and turning the bias knob to max, things may get mushy, or great depending on your taste and use. Not so great? Simply adjust the bias knob accordingly (by rolling it back in this example) and you’ll find the sweet spot that works for you. Rather than limiting the parameters of the bias knob to make sure the sound is never off-putting to anyone, they chose to keep the range wide to accommodate all guitars and basses. So don’t be surprised if some settings are sputtery or gated sounding. Simply adjust the knob accordingly, and you’ll be ready to go!

VOLUME: Makes it louder or not so loud when ya turn it.

LOW-CUT: A high-pass filter. Turn it clockwise, more lows, counter clockwise more treble BIAS: Adjusts the bias of the germanium transistor
