Isle of Tone Luxe 66 Mini in Blue Sparkle! Box, T Shirt, Bag, Extra Back Plate, etc included
The Luxe is special in every way. A combination of matched by ear NOS 1950’s Telefunken TFK OC glass with NOS Newmarket NKT12 germanium transistors that were never used in a pedal this way before which makes it even more unique! In front of a pretty clean sounding amp, it’s something in between a germanium boost/drive with fuzzy top-end but as soon as you crank the amp, the Luxe66Fuzz turns into a fuzz-legend. The volume control is responsible for the overall output level while the clarity knob is focused on the transistors amplification. This is what happened when I plugged it in the first time: volume & clarity interact like pre and master volume on a good old tube amp. If you crank the volume knob and roll back the clarity control and vice versa, or crank everything, it offers many tonal options. The Fuzz knob acts more like a tone control and doesn’t kill the amount of fuzz when turned down.
