What if the gain section from a opamp big muff and the eq section from a metal zone had a baby… That weirdly awesome combination is the Ghoul fuzz and its ready to melt your brainz……
How this came to be
I am not a big fan of the boss metalzone but like everything Boss does there is some serious genius in it and with the metal zone, for me, its the EQ section!
A 3 band active eq with a parametric mid control gives you such great control for a gain circuit. You can actively boost or cut the highs, mids and lows while also being able to adjust the freq range that the mid control affects! This lets you create really unique eq/gain combinations.
Since I wasn’t a fan of the gain section of the MZ I instead switched it out with the gain section from a vintage Opamp big muff giving you vintage inspired fuzz perfect to bring your tone to life.
This is one unique monster, and one bite will keep you hooked for life.
Fully active Eq
The Ghoul has a fully active eq with a parametric mid. Borrowed from the infamous zone of metal.
Big Gain section
If you have ever heard smashing pumpkins or any of the many acts that rely on a opamp big muff for their signature sound you know how big they can sound! Coupled with the eq the ghoul is a beast.
One of those small but big features the Ghoul will remember what state it was last in. If you run a true bypass looper set it to whatever state you want it to boot up in and it will be ready to go next time you turn it on!
Plug in your guitar
Plug in your amp
This controls your overall volume. Its pretty straight forward
This lets you sweep through the parametric freq of the mid control. Think of a wah sweeping through freq except this lets you just pick a certain freq range to adjust and stay there
This adjusts how much fuzz you get
Actively boost or cut your High frequencies
Actively boost or cut your Mid frequencies
Actively boost or cut your low frequencies
