KMA Audio Machines combine premium German engineering with a genuine love for tone. With every pedal handmade in Berlin, KMA use only the best components available to ensure that their pedals deliver cutting-edge tones with plenty of flexibility. While taking inspiration from classic, vintage units; KMA design all of their own circuits to modern and forward-thinking standards.
The KMA Audio Machines Minos is a germanium-driven fuzz stompbox that delivers the dirtiest fuzz tones imaginable. Inspired by the game-changing Tonebender pedal, the KMA Minos takes that iconic design one step further. With an incredibly pronounced and boomy low-end, the Minos can make your riffs sound huge!
Gnarly Germanium Sounds
The 'Input' control determines how much pre-gain and bass you want to add into your signal, acting similar to a high-pass filter. This may seem unconventional, but the further you increase the control, the thicker and gnarlier your fuzz tone will become.
The 'Output' knob affects the overall level of the pedal. With plenty of volume on tap, you can crank this to really drive your amp hard. The 'Anger' control lets you really pile on the gain, ranging from relatively low gain to a grainy, saturated tone similar to a Russian Big Muff pedal.
Versatile Tone Shaping
The Minos Fuzz also sports two tone-shaping switches. On the left you have a 'Tone Cut', which acts as a low-pass filter that attenuates the high-end frequencies. It doesn’t dramatically change your sound, but is subtle and musical.
The most versatile feature of the KMA Audio Machines Minos germanium fuzz pedal is its 'Bass Switch'. This gives a broader tonal palette, offering three different settings that affect the pedal’s bass response. Offering a lo-fi fuzz with plenty of bite, a mid-heavy tone with lots of punch, or a super-thick saturated fuzz - the choice is yours!
