Fans of classic 80s movies may recognise the visual inspiration for this unique offering from Mythos Pedals. The Positron Collider is a limited edition fuzz pedal with some unique features housed in a Ghostbusters-themed unit! The Positron Collider is based off the classic Ram's Head fuzz and will give you familiar fuzz sounds, but the added controls on this pedal will give you tones bigger than the Stay Puft marshmallow man!
Tone Shaping Controls
The "Focus" and "Intensity" knobs are your standard volume and gain controls and instead of a singular tone control the Positron Collider has a Treble and Bass tone circuit. This provides you with much greater control over your tone and being able to individually adjust your treble and bass makes this a very versatile fuzz. Bass or guitar, regardless of style you can fine tune the pedal to suit your needs.
The Positron Collider has the added benefit of allowing you to switch between silicon diode and LED clipping. Silicon diode is the classic, familiar clipping, however when you switch to the LED clipping you get a thicker, more overdriven sound (and a hefty volume boost too!).
Total Protonic Reversal!
The right footswitch activates the Total Protonic Reversal setting; while it doesn't cross any streams it does have a similarly powerful impact! In this case, Total Protonic Reversal lifts the tone stack and a shifts the EQ. It essentially gives you a thicker, punchier sound which is great if you want to quickly switch from a thinner, raspier fuzz tone to something with more force behind it.
Here's What Mythos Say About the Positron Collider Fuzz Pedal
Another Limited Edition pedal inspired by the paranormal catching equipment from the classic 1984 film “Ghostbusters”! The Positron Collider is a unique take on a classic fuzz circuit and offers some unique features you don’t find on your everyday stompboxes. The base circuit began as a classic “Ram’s Head” style fuzz but soon became much more than that.
A unique Treble and Bass tone circuit replaces the single tone knob found on vintage units, these two interactive knobs allow you fine tune the voicing to fit any guitar or bass rig. The Clipping switch allows you choose between classic silicon diode clipping or LED for a more overdriven sound. Fair warning, the LED clipping mode is incredibly loud! The right footswitch engages “Total Protonic Reversal” mode, which lifts the tone stack for a huge boost in volume and shift in EQ for a more full range fuzz tone. The “Active” LED when the pedal is engaged blinks like the classic Ghost Trap and the LED next to the “Intensity” knob lights as you play and it’s brightness is connected to the amount of gain you’re using! This feature and other refinements were done by my good friend and fantastic pedal designer Lawrence Petross (Check out his work here).
All in all the Positron Collider is a Swiss army knife fuzz box that’s so much fun, it’s scary!
