Mythic Fuzz & Boost
The result of a collaboration with the incredible folks at Spruce Effects, the Excalibur is an SCS exclusive dual channel hand-made silicon fuzz and germanium boost.
Excalibur is a dual channel hand-made silicon fuzz and germanium boost based on the fabled silicon Mosrite Fuzzrite and Dallas Rangemaster germanium Treble Booster. While the original Fuzzrite circuit is legendary, it lacks tone-sculpting options for modern players. Spruce Effects and SCS teamed up to retain the Fuzzrite's gnarly vintage charm while greatly expanding the pedal's tonal capabilities. The pedal boasts two independent order-switchable fuzz and boost circuits. Excalibur was hand-built with love [and a little bit of magic] by tone wizard Brian at Spruce Effects.
Excalibur utilizes low-noise metal film resistors, Wima film capacitors, audio-grade Nichicon electrolytic capacitors, NOS Sprague and Philips ceramic disc capacitors, hand measured and matched NOS Fairchild silicon transistors, and a hand measured and auditioned NOS Soviet Germanium transistor. All hardware is premium quality, using the high-end Gorva soft-click true-bypass footswitch, Taiway toggles, Switchcraft jacks, and a Lumberg premium DC connector. The artwork was designed by graphic designer Evan Madden.
The first 25 units will ship around 2 weeks after launch (January 20), while a second batch of 25 will ship approximately 3 weeks after launch.
