The earliest fuzz pedal circuitry was based around Germanium
transistors and several boutique manufacturers still produce pedals using them.

As
its name undoubtedly gives away, the Germaniac from Nottingham-based
Coopersonic is one such stompbox, being based around a single germanium
transistor. Featuring true bypass, it can be powered from a battery or standard
9V adaptor.

Disregarding the mania knob for the time being, the Germaniac
functions as a basic two-knob fuzzbox with the level knob setting the overall
output volume and the fuzz knob piling on ’60s-style snotty-nosed garage fuzz,
brash and rude with a top-end that cuts through

If you start messing with the mania knob, things start to get
extreme. Not a lot happens until the knob gets towards the halfway point but
advancing it creates greater degrees of instability until self-oscillation sets
in and you can get a range of wild chainsaw noises and analogue synth-style
drones without even touching your guitar (although you can manipulate these
with your volume control).

It’s not all mayhem though – juxtaposition of the mania and fuzz knobs
can yield some sweet spots for
a thicker and harmonically rich fuzz tone. In
short, if you like your fuzz to be on the edge or you need some wild noises on
stage, the Germaniac may be for you
