What are the voltage, current requirements and polarity requirements for the Factotum Suboctave Bass Overdrive?

Regulated DC 9 volts, 2.1mm plug center negative, 42ma.


What does the trim pot do on the PCB of the Factotum?

Trim 1 adjusts the Octave level. Feel free to adjust, just be sure to mark the original position with a sharpy before you adjust :)


What are the physical dimensions of the Factotum and how much does it weigh?

The pedal measures 118mm x 38mm x 94mm (4 5/8" x 1 1/2" x 3 5/8") and weights 385 grams


Can my Factotum run through my amps effects loop or should I run it into the front end of the amplifier?

The pedal can be run through your effect loop with the loop pad engaged. However, they were designed to be run in the front end of an amp - like all classic effects :)


Do you do one off custom builds?

No not at this stage.


Can I use a 6 string guitar through my Factotum pedal?

Certainly - the Factotum sounds amazing with 6 string guitar!!


Can I use a higher voltage to run my Factotum pedal for increased headroom?

No. Under no circumstances try running the pedals on any voltage above 9 volts DC. Doing so will damage the pedal.


Do you offer modifications (mods)?
