BASED ON THE CLASSIC ZONK MACHINE W/ 3-WAY INPUT CAP MOD

This classic mid 60's fuzz named after the English term for being knocked over the head is a tough little bugger. A bit smoother with less hiss than some of vintage units plus plenty of sustain when the fuzz control is maxed. Turn it all the way down for a more open, ratty fuzz tone. Tighter mid-frequency bark than a Tonebender mk1 with a bit more output so you won't dip below unity gain if using lower output pickups.  Basically, a modernized version of Honby Skewes take on the mark 1 using NOS Matsushita NPN germanium transistors.
