With the Stone Ages, Spanish amp and pedal builder Thermion is going for an ambitious attempt at creating a fuzz that can do it (almost) all, thanks to its four voicings, octave and clean footswitches, and generous sculpting options – the octave and clean channels can actually be fine-tuned through dedicated knobs.
The four fuzz flavors are Single Transistor, Maestro, Face and Thermion.
The EQ section features High and Low Cut knobs applying a high Q shelving filter to adapt your tone to any amps. A toggle switch allows you to bypass it.
Combining the four fuzz modes with the Octave and Clean options can conjure up a wide variety of tones from the classic to the “cloney” to the unusual. Fuzz lovers are bound to find a lot of interesting tones in the Thermion Stone Age.
