The Dream Crusher is a germanium fuzz effect designed to make your guitar sound more awesome. There are two simple controls: Fuzz and Level. Fuzz Controls how sweet you want to sound and Level controls how much you want other people to hear how sweet you sound. Even though it has a simple interface, there are many tones and textures waiting to be unleashed. We recommend setting the Fuzz to taste then adjusting the Level to unity, roughly noon on the dial. Playing with a band? Bump up the Level a couple notches to make it extra rad. If being extra rad isn’t your thing, bring it all back down to zero and rip in silence. Your call chief. We also recommend placing it first in your signal chain and before any buffered pedals for optimal awesomeness.

Power

THIS PEDAL NOW HAS A NEGATIVE GROUND AND CAN BE POWERED BY DAISY CHAIN AS WELL AS MORE CONVENTIONAL POWER SUPPLIES. THE UPDATED VERSION CAN BE DISTINGUISHED BY THE “V2″ ON THE LABEL. EARLY VERSIONS OF THIS DEVICE HAVE A POSITIVE GROUND AND CAN NOT USE A DAISY CHAIN STYLE POWER SUPPLY. THEY WERE WIRED TO ACCEPT A STANDARD 9V DC POWER SUPPLY WITH A NEGATIVE CENTER 2.1MM BARREL, NOT TO USE A REVERSE POLARITY POWER SUPPLY. IF YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT ANY OF THIS MEANS, SEND US AN EMAIL BEFORE POWERING UP.

Power by 9v Battery or any standard 9 volt DC power supply with a negative center 2.1mm barrel.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio  clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.

For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.

For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.

I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
