The Moonlight is Greuter's version of the legendary Fuzz Face. Since an original Fuzz Face is not always easy to use, the Moonlight has been designed to adapt better without losing the vintage character and feel. The Moonlight works very well with your guitar volume pot. Set a fuzz sound you like and roll down the volume on your guitar and get wonderful clean sounds, dirty but dynamic overdrive, or classic fuzz sounds from just your volume pot.
The Input Control sets the input impedance. Working in a similar way as if you would roll down the volume of your guitar, the fuzz cleans up. The pedal can also provide a low gain overdrive even if you plug in a guitar with high output pickups. With the Bias control, you can dial from a higher gain fuzz with fizzier top to lower gain almost overdrive with more headroom and more output volume!
The Bias is also a great help to find your sweet spot in any situation, since the Germanium Transistors are sensitive to temperature changes. The 3-way switch controls the bass. On the left, you have the classic Fuzz Face setting with most bass. On the right, the bass is cut but still full and round. In the middle it has even more bass cut for more definition. This pedal does perform best when first in the signal chain, just after the guitar. It doesn’t like buffers. But it likes overdriven tube amps and overdrive pedals to go with them!
The Russian germanium transistors are carefully selected and matched with pedal fine-tuned by ear.
The Moonlight is hand built in Switzerland and wired for True Bypass.
