Listen. We’re not saying to put a pencil through your speakers, because that is an objectively bad idea. However, we are saying that you can buy the Death By Audio Germanium Filter to simulate putting a pencil through your speaker. It’s safer and it saves your speaker.
The Germanium Filter features a console-style drive circuit and an intense DBA-style filter that beings a level of intensity you’re simply not going to get otherwise. The Germanium Filter is controlled by a Filter knob that controls the frequency response of the pedal, a Gain knob that takes things from mild overdrive to blasted-out fuzz, and an internal Volume knob that controls the overall output level of the pedal.
