We set out to create a circuit that combined the singing, dynamic mid-range of germanium fuzz pedals with the gritty, full-bodied and well-rounded Muff-style fuzz distortion. Well...
Utilizing silicon transistors in a proprietary architecture to get the best of both worlds, the Eureka! is a phenomenal team player, flawlessly performing with all kinds of different effects, guitars and amps, all-the-while managing to maintain its distinct head-turning personality.
The onboard three-way toggle-switch incrementally introduces more low-end, a feature extremely useful for switching between single-coil and humbucker equipped guitars, as well as beefing things up for solos! When set to the setting, and sending a strong enough signal its way you can enjoy its gated-fuzz response!
ARTISTS USING THE EUREKA!:
Mike Miller, James Sedwards, David Torn, Sean Ono Lennon
"The Eureka! is very touch sensitive, like some of my favourite Albert King tube amp distortion.With the toggle switch to the right, there’s a kind of compression there, where the attack is smeared out before the gigantic note arrives. And the power chord stuff is hilarious, huge snarly snaky stuff. Very adaptable for a variety of inputs, from high powered pickups to single coil. I’m a big fan of JΑΜ Pedals!" Mike Miller
"A wide variety of tones from nasally 60’s Fuzzrite to girthy 70’s Big Muff vibes and all points in between." Sean Ono Lennon
"The Eureka! has a unique voice all of its own and covers a lot of bases. With tones that can easily deliver super-heavy riffs, lead lines with searing mid-rich sizzle, flat out noise annihilation and the addition of enormous bass energy when required, this is a really versatile pedal!" James Sedwards
“Guitar, Eureka!, amp, done." David Torn
