Tym Savage Toecutter Deluxe
Out of Stock
This is my Tym version of the original early 80's "white face" RAT circuit. The deluxe RED version here uses the same (very) slightly modified custom Tym PCB with original LM308 IC and silicon diode clipping as the GREEN version with some added extras. It keeps the original tone intact with components based on the first small box version.
The Deluxe version has controls for Distort, Filter and Level like the standard but also has a mini toggle switch for clipping options with standard silicon, double silicon which gives more volume and clarity, and red LED clipping the same as the Turbo RAT which gives even more volume. It also also has a mini toggle for "shape" which is a common mod on RAT clones around the distortion filtering and gives a cleaner, more open tone with a modified bottom end. This is more noticeable with the distortion at lower settings. The deluxe version also has the volume bypass footswitch like the Fuzz Munchkin so you can essentially set a "rhythm" volume and switch this for a "lead" volume.
These are a mild to full sounding distortion with a simple filter with nice harmonics and plenty of output. Check my blog for more details.
My designs are inspired by the classic old units but with modern components and appointments and many options like true bypass or non true bypass switching, LED's, added "active" tone controls, boosts and "Boss" compatible 9 volt adapters. NONE of my pedals use batteries.
