The Spanish Castle pays tribute to 1969: the year that marked a turning point in the history of fuzz.
1969 was the year that Dallas-Arbiter switched Fuzz Face production from the lower-gain germanium transistor core to higher-gain silicon devices.
Packed to the turrets with fuzz spread across two separate and footswitchable SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9 circuits, the Spanish Castle is the perfect device for the fuzz-crazy and fuzz-curious alike.
The right side of the Spanish Castle represents the warmer pre-’69 circuit and is equipped with low-gain silicon transistors that emulate the rich character of germanium with more stable and consistent operation.
Unlike the Faces of yore, this circuit is equipped with a bias circuit to dial in just the right flavor. This side also cleans up like a champ.
On the left side, a post-’69 If 6 Was 9 circuit lies in wait.
This wing of the Spanish Castle offers up higher-gain silicon transistors for a more buzzsaw-like grind, metal film resistors for tighter tolerances and an extended bias range for dialing in ripping gated fuzz textures as well as full-bodied snarl.
Color is a three-position switch that adjusts the EQ of its respective side, from flat EQ to two settings that shave off treble and mids.
The Input toggle is also a three-position switch, changing gain and bass values that make the Spanish Castle adapt better to your wahs and other pedals.
If that’s not enough control for you, each side contains an internal switch that changes between Bold and Comp modes, the former increasing the output and midrange, and the latter offering a softer, more compressed tone.
