The Gumball is a silicon germanium distortion hybrid, the best of both worlds, the spongy and harmonically rich sound of the germanium and the definition and loudness of silicon, as its name suggests the Gumball has a sticky sound quality, perfect for heavy rhythm work and riffing. The sustain you expect from a germanium fuzz and the definition and solid sound of a silicon distortion.
