Montarbo P.B. 2 Phase Shifter Buzzer

Montarbo P.B. 2 Phase Shifter Buzzer 


A clip of the Montarbo PB-2 Phase Shifter/Buzzer, with a Fender Nocaster 1996-97 Cunetto Relic and a vintage '72 Hiwatt DR103 + vintage '71 Hiwatt 4x12 cab with Fane speakers (with an SM57 mic in a Motu Ultralite MKIII and a Zoom Q3HD)

The Montarbo P.B. 2 is a Phase Shifter + Fuzz pedal, made in Italy in the '70s. It runs on 220v and has a Sinfhoton fuzz circuit (a vintage '70s Montarbo silicon fuzz) + a phaser with three footswitches for speed (low, medium, fast) with a speed knob control. Fuzz has volume and tone control. Both effects sounds very nice, the phaser is warm and "liquid", and fuzz has a lot of gain, and you can go from great "lead tone" to "a wall of sound"...
