The Mojo Hand FX El Guapo is an ultra-flexible fuzz machine offering a plethora of great fuzz tones. It can get nasty and gnarly with the best of them, but it can also be dialed back for nice, smooth, classic fuzz, and all the way down to an “almost” overdrive.
The “Starve” knob controls the amount of voltage being fed to the circuit. The higher that it’s set the nastier things get. This can be used in conjunction with the “Gain” control for a wide variety of fuzz sounds. “Volume” controls the overall level of the pedal, while “Cut” controls the amount of high end that comes through.
-Cut (cuts low frequencies as turned up)
-Starve (cuts current to second transistor stage as turned up)
-Gain (controls input signal to fuzz circuit)
