Product Details

  • Manufacturer: DIGITECH
  • Model: DOD
  • Item Condition: NEW
  • ID: #104293


The DOD Carcosa Fuzz is a doorway into an alternate fuzz universe, where classic tones of legend coexist with splattered and shattered Pollock abstractions. Combining the Carcosa's wide-ranging "After" bias control with two toggle positions creates tones that range from porcine fatness to desiccated shards. This versatility makes the Carcosa Fuzz a good companion for dirty or clean amps. True bypass, tons of output, and the visage of the King in Yellow sets the stage for fuzzy madness.

The DOD Carcosa Fuzz has an exaggerated mid-range and treble character that help it stand out in a mix. It has been designed to cut through a dense and heavy band but still have great note articulation with chords. However, when extreme bias (After) ranges are selected many wild and over-the-top sounds are possible.

In general, the usage of the Carcosa is dependent upon how you like to run your amp. If you run your amp dirty, then HALI mode will keep the lows tight and the HI-CUT will allow for increased high-frequency detail for use as a treble-booster. This makes the Carcosa excellent for use as a fuzzy lead boost. If you run your amp clean, then DEMHE mode will boost the low-mids and this mode pairs especially well with American twin combo amps (with the amps bright switch disengaged). DEMHE mode also sounds great with British amps on the edge of breakup; the Carcosa can thicken and drive the amp into saturation.

Wide ranges of fuzz voicings are possible with the Carcosa. When using lower counter-clockwise bias (AFTER) settings the Carcosa responds very well to volume knob changes and pick attack dynamics: Cleaning up in a controlled and pleasing manner like classic overdrive fuzzes. Once the bias (After) is set for higher clockwise ranges then the Carcosa gain and attack characteristics become less-responsive to volume changes and more aggressive fuzz tones are available - All the way up to strange sputtering synthy hornlike tones.

Store Information


When you shop at Mannys you don’t just get the gear, you get the knowledge and expertise of 25 years of experience as one of Australia’s most influential independent music retailers.

In the beginning…

After managing the Allan’s city store for 10 years, an ambitious Manny Gauci-Seddon decided to open his own music store. He wanted his shop to uphold the values of true support and after-sales service, and to form genuine ongoing relationships with his customer base. The trends of the industry at that time were pointing to more of a disposable, corporate mentality and so in the early years he set out to make a name for himself as a serious independent alternative.

The first store was a funky shop in Smith Street, Collingwood in 1991. By 1998 Manny had outgrown this store and saw the need to focus more on the upcoming computer based recording revolution. He established an address in Johnson St Fitzroy as the arts were booming on the north side of the city. In the same year the opportunity came to acquire a business on Chapel St – the Revolver Music Gallery. With a two store operation Manny was now making the difference he set out to 7 years earlier. The Mannys brand was known for knowledge and service, with the staff greatly sought after for their experience. Unlike the other major players, the focus was not just on sales but also on the process of making music.

When the opportunity came to consolidate into one superstore, the North Fitzroy address seemed perfect for the move. Manny wanted to expand his customer base to include more of the musicians turning to the internet due to the lacklustre service of his competitors. He took the best from both stores and moved his operation to the hub of music and musicians just north of the city.

In November 2016 Mannys was sold to SoundBay Pty Ltd, the operator of Australia’s largest DJ and production retailer, Store DJ. While the essence of Mannys Music will always exist, our mission for Mannys Music moving forward is to ensure that we continue to build the ultimate experience for our customers online or in store. Our sales staff remain knowledgeable, professional musicians first and sales people second. Mannys Music gives you one hub to purchase all of your gear, and if we don’t have it, we’ll try our hardest to get it for you.

Mannys – The best advice you can give a musician.
