Our Cornichon is based on one of John Mayer favorite fuzz, the Cornish NG-2.
This fuzz got a lot of volume, and also a lot of gain. Described as "imminent tube amp death", the tone out of the pedal is completely crazy. Base control include Volume and Tone, the Sustain push the distorted signal into a weird Sub/Up octave tone.
There's a balance trim pot inside the pedal, normally adjusted on the edge of being noisy. Turn it counter-clockwise to have more gain/sustain, at the risk of being noisy at idle.
In French, a Pickle is called a "Cornichon", that's where the name came from. The near death tone of the Cornish is painted in this dying pickle fuzz. Enjoy !
