juicyjuice's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" DEVELOPER OF GUITARS"

Seymour Duncan SFX-05 Lava Box
It goes from very light to boost fuzz polite but fuzz anyway.

9V power supply similar to the effects bosses, with very low battery (about 6 months to daily use).


Use very intuitive and simple, suddenly we linger on the possibilities instead of going directly where we want, which is a serious avantage.La washed box had to be designed by hippies on the return that we tired of hearing everyone follow the sound modes.


Everything depends on the guitar is plugged in any case, it sounds rather old.
I play a Carvin XV112 amended, jaguar with a double in bridge and seymour sg yamaha 300 carb kit.
Made very different depending on the guitar played (it's good we have understood):

With a simple microphone that is sharp on the first 3 notches to soften little petit.Le progressif.Je gain is very rarely exceeds a quarter of the gain with a single microphone, or so I put everything thoroughly over the last position and it is a bit of a mess, I like TOUCH ME I'M SICK!

With a good double is more rich and fat without losing definition, the accents are sanded and plunges it into the 70's. It can also play the cello with a good neck pickup tone to 0.

I just regret the fact of not being able to choose the first position as a simple booster, because from the second notch gain at zero, the box starts out cruncher, while equalization becomes more interesting for my taste (more bass).
The more you turn to the right, gain 0, more saturation increases with the trunk as a bonus.
The sixth and final level is well muscled
Little breath. Great with a good phaser.


I for one year. I owned a thirty distortions and have tried many, it stands out.
I love when the material leads us out of our time sound, and frankly it is the case here.
Many personality not for everyone.

+ = Indicates the identity of his attack, and the guitar, play invites us to listen to something else, allow time for notes.PEACE

- = The first position used as boost (lack of bass), lack of space between the volume knob and the switch, it feels strange at first (especially live). Rare in French stores.
