Funkzilla - Custom Shop Molten Bronze
The Funkzilla is our answer for those in search of the ultimate filter pedal. With its all-analog signal path, powerful filter matrix, and unique Tap Tempo control, with filter modulation, the Funkzilla truly is an instrument in and of itself. Standard controls for Frequency and Depth make it easy to quickly shape the character of the filter while the Attack knob lets you dial in the filter’s response to your instrument. In addition to the core filter controls, the Funkzilla also includes a Direction toggle, shared by both Envelope and Tap modes, giving you the ability to set the direction of the filter sweep and our custom Tap Tempo function with tap multiplier takes your filter control even further offering multiple waveform settings, expression pedal input, and dynamic rhythmic patterns. With its wide range the Funkzilla is at home on any pedalboard whether for guitar, bass or keys. If you have been looking for an inspired filter pedal that takes creativity to a new level look no further than the Funkzilla!

Speed: When in Tap mode, this knob controls the rate at which the filter sweeps automatically, from near-frozen pulses to hyperdrive.
Mode: This eight-position control cycles through several rhythms and accents when in Tap mode. Because of the different rhythms, it is highly interactive with the standard filtering controls. Turning the Mode control fully left bypasses all functions.
Depth: Controls the intensity of the filter sweep across both Tap and Envelope modes.
Freq: Adjusts the center frequency of the filter sweeps. Turning the knob lower centers the filtering on the dubby side of things while turning it up gets you into Zappa territory. Works across both Tap and Envelope modes.
Attack: This control adjusts the time it takes for the filter to “open.” Turning it doesn causes the envelope to open slowly, and turning it up opens the envelope very quickly. This knob works only in Envelope mode.
1 2 4: The tempo range of the Funkzilla lives in this switch. In Tap mode, it sets the subdivisions of your tapping. In standard mode, it sets the range of the Speed control.
Wave: A three position switch changes LFO waveforms between Sine, Ramp and Square modes. This switch is only available in Tap mode.
Dir: This switch toggles between forward and reverse envelope operations, and is available across both Envelope and Tap modes.
Tap/Env: Changes between the two main modes: Tap and Envelope. In Tap mode, the filter speed is set by either Speed knob, expression pedal or tap tempo. Each control will override the last one used. Envelope mode works as a standard envelope filter. Make sure that your instrument’s volume is set to maximum for best results.
Input: Instrument or other pedal goes here.
Output: Amplifier or other pedal goes here.
Expression jack: In Tap mode, connecting an expression pedal gives hands-free control over the Speed knob for some psychedelic filter action. This effect is not available in Envelope mode.
True bypass footswitch: Turns the effect on and off.
Tap tempo footswitch: In Tap mode, sets the tempo of the filter sweeps.
Power: The Funkzilla requires a center-negative 9VDC power adapter with at least 15mA of current (not included). Almost all power supplies meet this requirement, but check yours beforehand.
Dimensions: 4.67" x 3.68" x 1.18" (119mm x 94mm x 30mm)
