The Kar Krash is based on the famous Express amps from the legendary Mr. Ficsher.  Somewhat of a cross between a blackface, plexi and a top boost sound that really makes it its own thing.  The sound has a lot of gain without getting into sizzle, and the bottom is tight but more bluesy than hard rock or metal.  Thats my take anyway.  Gain goes from clean to hard rock levels.  Scroll down for more info on the controls.

Build time is about 2-4 weeks or so.



All demos played poorly by Menatone unless otherwise noted.  Amp is a princeton style 5w running into a Ox Amp Top Box.  Amp settings are very clean to not hide the sound of the pedal.

BRT SWITCH - 3 way bright switch around the gain control.  Center is off,  I is the brightest to be used when the gain is up higher,  II is normal for when gain is lower.
