Careful, the Perseus just might take your head off. While the  
mythology behind Perseus is certainly interesting, the Perseus 
sub-octave fuzz is actually named after the Perseus cluster, where the 
lowest note in the universe eminates from a black hole. What?s 
happening out there is that intergalactic gas has concentrated around 
a cluster of galaxies, forming a cloud. A massive black hole is 
sending out jets of particles that crash into the cloud, causing 
pressure waves to ripple outward. Some astronomers interpret these as 
sound waves. Of course, even if you call it sound, it?s too low for 
anyone to hear. They estimate the note to be a ?B flat,? about 
fifty-seven octaves lower than middle C. While the Perseus won?t give 
you 57 octaves below, we do believe this is the coolest analog 
octave-down fuzz out there! The Perseus is an octave-down fuzz that 
allows you to select either one or two octaves down mixed with a fuzz 
sound that you can blend to any mix of the two you want, including 
just the fuzz or just the sub-octave. The Perseus can track the 
sub-octave note accurately no matter where on the neck you are playing!

The Perseus features three knobs and an octave switch. The Volume has 
PLENTY of output so you can pummel your amp to your heart's desire! 
Unity volume is around 10:00. The Blend allows you mix the fuzz and 
octave sounds in any amount you want. The Cut control is something 
special on the Perseus. Turn the Cut control full-counterclockwise for 
maximum bass frequency domination. Turn it clockwise to trim the fat. 
This enables you to tune the Perseus to your amp or to create cool 
textures for lead playing. While the controls on the Perseus may seem 
simple, it?s important to know that your guitar?s tone, volume and 
pickup selection makes a big difference in the Perseus? behaviour.
