The RAIL is a different take on your typical fuzz pedal – it doesn't use diodes or transistors, but instead slams the voltage rails of the pedal with crazy amounts of gain. In practice this ends up just sounding extremely powerful and huge – and doesn't succumb to the pitfalls of classic / vintage fuzz pedals (buffer issues / stacking issues). You can get everything from sparkly dirt to full-on gated synth-like fuzz with this pedal! I especially like the 8-way drive control. That stepped-switch take on the gain circuit is a really practical way to dial in a sound.
Thanks to Pettyjohn for sending this out for the demo!
