Edgy, Aggressive Silicon Fuzz
with huge range including clean, overdrive, and distortion
The Skreddy Pedals™ Lunar Module was designed for "that"
certain silicon fuzz tone guitar solo I fell in love with on a best-selling
1973 album. I intentionally voiced this thing aggressively so it will
cut through any mix. Very satisfying and addictive "vintage" fuzz tone.
Unlike typical silicon fuzzes, which can sound thin and raspy, the Lunar
Module has a dense sound that can be darkened to taste.
Classic late 60's/early 70's fuzz tones with extra control,
versatility, and added noise reduction. Using 3 transistors instead of 2, a pre-distortion
bass control, and a post-distortion treble control, the Lunar Module yields a multitude

9v battery is not included.
If you use a battery, then remember to un-plug the input cable from the
pedal’s input jack when not in use to prevent draining (or you can also
just plug in a power-supply, which disconnects the battery).
You may supply external power through an AC adapter.
All Skreddy Pedals accept the industry-standard 9v DC plug (5.5mm barrel x
2.1mm center coax), negative tip. Please use a quality, regulated,
filtered power supply.
I received my LMMD yesterday. All of the clips on the Internet don't do
it justice. You have to hear it with your own ears and feel it through
your own fingers to experience the versatility of this pedal. My current
rig is a Clapton Strat through a '64 AA864 Bassman. The only
fuzz/overdrive/distortion pedal that has remained on my board through
thick and thin is my xx, it even outlasted my xxx. The xx is very rich and
dynamic, and nails Clapton/Cream era tones using the bridge pickup and
mid-boost on the Clapton Strat. But I couldn't get those Strat neck pickup
tones I had heard on record and in my head until now. The many shades of
clean boost, overdriven, and fuzz tones out of this pedal are stellar. And
if the versatility of the 5 controls on the pedal isn't enough, I love the
way it reacts to the active electronics in my guitar. I never bonded with
silicon fuzzes until now. I know I'm late to the party, but great stuff!!!
Just wanted to send an email with massive kudos on the Lunar Module Mini
Deluxe. I bought one on the emporium, and it is hands down the best fuzz
I've ever heard or played through. I've played for about 12 years and have
tried fuzz after fuzz and none ever lasted on my board for more than a week;
they just never sounded musical to me. I plugged in the LMMD and was
completely blown away. Huge props your way for making a great product, and
it is quickly becoming my go-to pedal for just about everything. Take care,
and keep up the great work!
I received the Lunar Module today...man that was fast! Though I've only been
playing with it for an hour or so now, and have yet to tap into all its full
tonal capabilities, I am already in love with it! It sounds fantastic and
really gets along great with my other pedals and rig. I love the Gilmour
tones I get get out of it, not too mention that "ZZ Topesque" fuzz that
always sounds soooo good. This pedal is VERY conducive to not only my style,
but my rig and genre preference as well. All the "hype" surrounding the
Lunar Module is completely validated...which is refreshing for a change.
That isn't always the case in the world of guitar pedals. I'm really looking
forward to incorporating this into my live rig!
Thanks again for everything...I truly look forward to doing continued
business with you. Please keep up the GREAT work!"
"Dave and I
were testing the Lunar Module together last night and he played shit in just
about every style imaginable where dirt would fit and it all sounded great.
Non-floyd shit from White Stripes to latin tripped out salsa shit and some Sonic
Youth scrambled noise for good measure. After about 15 minutes of rocking
the fuck out I asked him jokingly if he liked the sound and he was floored when
I told him we had not swtiched dirt pedals for any of it.
"...It's Marc's take on silicon fuzz.
It just so happens to be the silicon fuzz IMO.
If that's what your looking for you won't be disappointed. ;)"
"Tried the Lunar
Module as soon as I got it out of the box. I love love love this pedal. I have
five other fuzz boxes, but this one not only has it's own niche, I think it
may actually be kind of the core of my collection now. I'm looking forward to
playing it a lot more this weekend. Thanks. I think there's a couple of old
pedals I can cull from the collection now.
I am impressed by how with this box, it is not a matter of "dialing in a good
tone." Rather, every setting on this box sounds good, musical, and useful for
"I just wanted to let you know that I received the pedal today and have had a
chance to try it out this evenening for a while. All I can say is .... "WOW"!
I have no idea what sort of magic that you managed to squeeze into that little
box, but that has to be the best damn fuzz/distortion I have ever used for the
DSotM sound. You must have put a little extra on it, too because I managed to
quickly dial in a few of the old Zep songs also.
You cannot find a happier, more satisfied customer!
||This sets the output volume.
You can adjust your Skreddy Pedal to roughly the same volume as your bypass
signal (i.e.; “unity gain”) or you can boost your signal for a fatter tone.
||Takes you from gritty,
touch-sensitive overdrive all the way to aggressive, saturated, slightly
sick fuzz. Warning: it can get noisy at high settings.
||Dials in the amount of bass going
into the fuzz section, for everything from tight overdrive to
full-voiced distortion to thick, nasty fuzz. Warning: it can get
noisy at low settings.
||You can get more brilliance and
“hair” or make it darker and smoother, to suit your amp and taste.
||Sets the gain of the input
transistor. Turned all the way up, the Lunar Module will be
fuzzier and more aggressive, but also noisier. Turned lower, there
will be a darker, tamer response. I tend to like it about 20%
backed off from max.
Just a quick update now that I'm a couple more weeks in with these pedals.
Bottom line: I am simply thrilled with both of them.
I use them separately, stacked, whatever --- just sound great. The SD is
my main dirty sound into my Fender style amp, but I use it as a tone
shaper/slightly hairy boost into my Marshall style amp and it's wonderful.
And of course the LM sounds great into the Fargen (Marshall) and equally
great when I run it into the Screw Driver when I'm using the SD as an
always on dirt pedal into the Sewell (Fender BF).
Love em both!
Well, I got my Lunar Module from Cowtown in today ~8a.m. EST (I was
waiting on the porch for FedEx) ...
Here was my approach to taking the "Pepsi Challenge"........
I avoided my pedalboard and just plugged my '71 Strat into the Lunar
Module straight into my '63 Pre-CBS Fender Deluxe (with all four
transformers upgraded to Mercury Magnetics)........
I messed with the trim pots and and played with it until now 12:00p.m.
EST ......that's four hours of getting lost in my playing and I never
even put it on my board!!!
I can really hear all sorts of tonal richness..... I cranked the pre-gain
trim pot and got my Hendrix tone.... AND it cleans up BEA-utifully...falling
right in where I want my Gilmour tones.....
I'm really speechless; the LM is so AWESOME..... LOTS of people use
"effects" to get their tone and never focus on the main "pedal"...... a
players hands, technique, & facility!
The thing that I LOVE about every pedal of yours, that I have come across,
is that I have been able to find heavenly tones I have not heard
before.... but more importantly... the integrity and response to my HANDS
is freakin' UNBELIEVABLE.
I'm probably going to get rid of a few pedals because of this dandy.....
I love it!
You have made another tasty day for a player on Planet Earth..... and for
the forseeable future as well!!!!
I'm really psyched about the Pig Mine...... when I get it I will have
four of your pedals.... and the rest of my rig will probably go on Ebay.
You Rock Brother
