The Queen Jealousy production units are sparkle pink with clear knobs as shown in the final picture – professional shots coming soon.
Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the Queen Jealousy is designed with new old stock Allen Bradley carbon composition resistors throughout the circuit. Modern “tin-can” transitiors are used to closely match the gainy grit of the original parts used in the mid-1970s pedals. Finally, this pedal uses extremely rare Amperex 1N542 diode pairs, taken from what is potentially the last sealed box in existence. These diode pairs are highly sought after by guitarists and collectors alike, renowned for their warm, rich sound.
One of the most exciting features of the Queen Jealousy pedal is its Fuzz/Oct mode footswitch, which toggles between traditional octave and fuzz-only operation. This feature provides guitarists with the flexibility to explore new tonal possibilities and add a creative edge to their music. The Queen Jealousy pedal delivers a wide range of sounds, from classic psychadelic-style octave fuzz to cutting-edge modern tones – all just one stomp away.
The Queen Jealousy pedal’s unique combination of vintage and modern components creates a sound that is truly one-of-a-kind, and sure to inspire creativity in guitarists of all levels. The pedal’s versatility makes it ideal for a variety of music genres, including rock, blues, funk, and more.
