Fredric Effects is owned by the two guitarists of London alt rock band The Sailplanes, and focus on naught but recreating vintage boutique effects at a highly affordable price, while ensuring the most supreme of build qualities that last the test of time!
Boasting Alpha footswitches and pots on each pedal for superior longevity, custom made PCB enclosures, Cliff jack sockets and finished with original design prints and a professional powder coating to provide the most lasting finish possible, every aspect of the pedal is crafted with care and passion.
The Utility Perkolator takes the authentically reproduced circuit which has been so successful in Fredric Effects (true to the original design) Harmonic Percolator clone pedal, but then introduces a little fresh thinking. Among other things, the new design delivers reduced floor noise, meaning your output can focus solely on all the brutal tones the Utility Perkolator has to offer.
Other upgrades include Russian Germanium transistors for higher gain and less leakage, plus the addition of a low pass filter to tame some of the high end hiss associated with the original Harmonic Percolator, making the Utility Perkolator possibly the best sounding HP clone on the market!
