Description

The RaingerFx Dr Freakenstein Fuzz DrFF-3 and Igor is a full-on fuzz distortion pedal, housed in Rainger's own original design steel desk-type enclosure.

Along with a volume control, there’s an overtone knob which controls the pitch of the harmonic overtone in the sound. This sounds great at any setting, but becomes very exciting as you adjust it – like a cross between a wah wah and a phaser. So an LFO option is incorporated to modulate this control (giving a triangle wave-shape, speed adjustable from a slow sweep to a fast wobble). There’s a switch (‘MOD’) on the front panel to turn this on or off, the status and speed of the oscillator shown by the red and white throbbing meter backlight.

The DrFF-3 has a hi/lo intensity pushbutton on the back panel, switching the overtone from a lower ‘inside the sound’ to a higher-pitched in-your-face zip. On the low setting it’s possible to get a strong – perfectly tracking – low octave introduced, especially when the guitar’s neck pickup is selected. Add an LFO fast wobble, and great thick organ-esque tones are possible.

As part of how the distortion circuit works, the Dr Freakenstein has an impressive fixed-setting noise gate built in, creating dead silence between notes (which is very strange for a distortion).

IGOR

Also, being the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz, of course it has an assistant called Igor – a small dual-sensitivity pressure pad that you tread on or work by hand. This plugs in via mini-jack to either tweak the overtone according to how hard you press, or to adjust the bias of the modulation range; on a fast modulation setting, this can give an effect reminiscent of a bubbling synth, sweeping down from high cutoff to low. Igor is like ‘aftertouch’ on a synth – but for guitarists. It’s a new thing – tiny and light, and with practically no moving parts. One Igor comes with each Dr Freakenstein.

There’s also a meter for monitoring your input signal, plus a knifeswitch that you throw to power it up.
