The Animal Factory Chemical Burn is a fuzz pedal inspired by the classic 1960s Shin-ei/Companion Superfuzz FY-6. The unit builds on this design by adding some very interesting features.
The Chemical Burn is an octave-up fuzz pedal featuring the option to mix between Germanium and silicon clipping, an intuitive tone control labelled 'pH' which changes between a standard Superfuzz FY-6 tone and a very thick, mid-focused tone. The unit also features volume and gain knobs labelled 'Agony' and 'Degree', a true bypass control and a three-way switch - 'Damage' - controlling the amount of octave blended in; the three settings are low (skin), medium (flesh) and high (bone) - inspired by the stock Superfuzz FY-6 sound.
