Mattoverse FloraVolt


The FloraVolt is a fruit/vegetable powered audio saturator effects pedal. Play delicious potato powered diminished chords as you contemplate your produce powered future, or just spend the day ripping sick riffs thanks to that old banana you weren’t going to eat anyway.  Use an apple to sweetly saturate your synths and drum machines, or languish in the luscious tones of your lime powered legato leads. 

Move over tonewood... tonefruit is the next great tone debate.

To power the FloraVolt, simply push a fruit/vegetable onto the silver and copper pegs. This forms a simple organic battery that powers the pedals circuit. Depending on the fruit/vegetable you use it is capable of everything from starved distorted tones to mild overdrive and low gain crunch. Most fruits/vegetables provide very little voltage/current so the maximum volume output is usually close to or slightly above unity gain.

Works well with a variety of apples, bananas, potatoes, and citrus fruits but is not guaranteed to work with every type of fruit/vegetable.

Works well with guitar or bass and I especially enjoy it on synths and drum machines.
