Transiberiana is a massive distortion capable of exploring arid territories as well as dare into fat dripping sounds! It is positioned at the exact point where a distortion becomes a fuzz. No mosquitoes! A typical side effect of circuits that achieve distortion by generating a square waveform is the lack of control over the upper harmonics. This means that most of the units that use this principle have an annoying mosquito effect. The circuitry of the Transiberiana, inspired by an old and rare Big Muff, very difficult to find nowadays, uses the same principle to generate distortion, but, thanks to some reinterpretations, offers better filtering of harmonics, giving a comparable sound to the immensity of Siberia steppe. Like all Colombo Audio Electronics pedals, even Transiberiana is completely customizable. Depending on customization requests, the price could change significantly. Fuzz and distortion ... Distortion and fuzz have a common denominator: generating distortion, the way it is achieved does not change only by the name given to the unit... The most famous fuzz-boxes were developed in the 60s and normally designed to be connected as the first effect of the chain to better interface with the impedance of the guitar magnets, resulting (often but not always) in surprising cleaning signal by lowering the guitar volume potentiometer. The term "distortion" is instead much more generic, and, by convention, in common thought, without going into purely technical discourses, it's considered more modern.
