The Catalinbread Merkin is a fuzz pedal designed to be "just right for classic sixties fuzz sounds and beyond" according to its manufacturer.

Extended and refined from a classic fuzz circuit, this 3 silicon transistor circuit is "textural, varying from blunt to ripping." Its controls include a volume and a texture knob with a range "from cleanish blend counter-clockwise to full fuzz" as you turn the knob clockwise.

 

The Merkin Fuzz is able to do octave-up sounds by using your guitar's neck pickup with the tone rolled off. It works for bass too.

 

As far as power supply is concerned, use a carbon battery for warm vintage tone and smooth response, or an alkaline or 9 volt dc supply for a harder sound, or run on 18 volt DC supply for even more output and an aggressive sound. Volume unity for the Merkin resides around 9:00.
