FREI is a fully discrete, all analogue, vibe pedal. It uses an incandescent bulb with corresponding LDRs for chewey, swirly, throbby, psychedelic vibe sounds. I spent a lot of time sourcing the perfect parts, to keep the vibe hefty and the price tag not as much. Some vibes have a tendency to get way too extreme once you turn your fuzz on, so I added a secondary foot switch for you to toggle between two independent depth controls. This means you essentially have two presets available.
Expression input accepts a TRS plug. Use an expression pedal with a 10k ohm potentiometer.
Go to www.expressionpedals.com to see which ones fit! The BOSS EV-30 is one of them. There’s a slight volume boost when the pedal is on, because we’re Fjord FUZZ, not Fjord Pedals.
Stick a KVASIR in front of it and a FREIA after it for the greatest of times.
Power at 9V only/250mA.

FROM THE BUILDER
FREI was the Norse God of Peace and Love.
It’s the obvious choice of name for a vintage style vibe!
It’s also the name of my youngest son.
