At its base, the Germanium Filter is a drive pedal that utilizes obsolete germanium transistors to offer a range of drive tones from a dirty boost and overdrive to distortion and full-blown fuzz. That sound is then fed into a Death By Audio-style filter that allows you to shape its frequencies from extremely low lows to shrieking highs and everything in between. 

The Germanium Filter has an easy-to-use set of controls:


  • Filter Control (Heavy/High): Controls the filter’s frequency response. 
  • Gain Control (Clean/Dirty): Increases the amount of gain – from mild overdrive to heavy fuzz. 
  • Volume (internal): There is an internal control that allows you to set the output volume of the pedal.
