SolidGoldFX - If 6 Was 9
BC183 MkII Fuzz Pedal

SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9

Legendary Fuzz tone... and then someFuzz Face is the one pedal responsible for capturing the history of sonic rebellion and the soul of classic rock. Thick and raunchy when played with power chords, silky smooth and immersivity soaring when used with lead lines and with an almost too-good-to-be-true volume knob cleanup, allowing for the best clean tones you’ve ever heard, the Fuzz Face is truly a versatile tonal treasure. Jimi Hendrix, Eric Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Pete Townsend all developed their undying legacy with this iconic fuzz machine and with the If 6 Was 9 MKII by SolidGoldFX, you can instantly dial in those legendary tones or go even further to create your own saturated signature sound.

At A Glance • Silicon Fuzz pedal based on the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face circuit
• Soft-touch True bypass switching and top-mounted jacks
• Thick balanced bass response and tight fuzz tone
• Bias knob for varying the operational voltage
• Made using two BC183 transistors
• Hand-made in Montreal, Canada

Vintage Inspired

SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9

Modern AdditionsIt’s been at least 10 years since SolidGoldFX launched their original If 6 Was 9 BC183 and improving on this solid design was no small task. The SGFX pedal pays tribute to all the players who contributed to shaping rock music, using specially selected components to get you inspired. Including two BC183 devices each one, this is widely regarded as a happy medium between the potentially mushy compression of germanium and the brash sawmill-like fuzz of silicon.

The tone of the If 6 Was 9 MKII is smooth and refined, without losing clarity with chords and has plenty of sustain on single-notes. The MKII includes all the soulful fuzz tones of the original BC183, but has a variety of new features aimed at bringing this vintage inspired design into the modern age.

Variable Voltage Pump

SolidGoldFX If 6 Was 9

Consistent Desired BreakupWhat makes the new If 6 Was 9 MKII special is the power supply. Fuzz Face tone has been filtered down to such a precise science that players now know what voltage at which they prefer their Fuzz Face to be run. Eric Johnson famously kept a box full of batteries drained to various degrees. This fuzz is equipped with a variable voltage pump, supplying anywhere from 5 to 15VDC from a single 9V power source. Removing the need for a box full of questionable batteries, just set the knob to your preferred supply voltage and get as much fuzzy compression or meaty breakup you wish for, consistently, every time.

Together with the bias control, this allow sfor any shade of fuzz ranging from gated and sputtery, to smooth and dynamic, then up to bold and punchy. The new saturate control trims the circuit’s input for improved cleanup, signal chain integration or impedance matching, perfect when used with a wah pedal. Finally, bringing this fuzz face into the 21st century is the soft-touch true bypass switching and top jacks.

The Tech Spec

Features Specification
Knobs Volume: Allows you to boost or cut your volume level

Bias: This varies the voltage to Q2’s collector, giving you a huge range of tones from compressed and nasty to big and bold.

Fuzz: Sets the amount of distortion.

Volts 5-15V: This controls the overall power feeding the pedal. Turning counter-clockwise drops the voltage to 5V for more sag and compression while turning clockwise increases the internal voltage up to 15V for extra kick and headroom.

Saturate: This knob trims input gain. Turn it fully clockwise for classic fuzz face tones. Dial it back for impedance matching with wahs & other effects placed before it for better cleanup/less fuzz.
Toggle Switches Body: This toggle switch delivers three different fuzz voicings. Chose from Fat (left), Treble Boost (center), or Classic (right).
Auxiliary Input: Instrument or other pedal goes here.

Output: Amplifier or other pedal goes here.

True bypass footswitch: Turns the effect on and off.
Power The If 6 Was 9 MKII requires center-negative 9V DC power supply with a 2.1mm barrel plug only. Current draw is 20mA.

Important: internal voltage pump - do not exceed 9VDC. Use of an improper power supply will void warranty.
