Caroline named its fuzz Olympia™ in honor of its “hammer of the gods” ’60s roots, the Pacific Northwest locales where this sound came back with a vengeance in the ’90s, and the Columbia neighborhood that is now a home to its emerging musical and artistic scene.
The “Shigeharu” version of this pedal has the same circuit and performance, but has fancy Japanese style graphics. Just because.
Inspired by Caroline's favorite timeless and classic transistor Bender and Muff-based fuzzes, Caroline tweaked every component they could to squeeze as much performance as they could out of the designs, listened to what their testers and players told them, then forgot about the math and went for the red line. As Lemmy from Motorhead once sang: “You thought you knew the answers/but you only knew the rules.”
