Caroline Guitar Company named their fuzz "Olympia™" in honor of its “hammer of the gods” ’60s roots, the Pacific Northwest locales where this sound came back with a vengeance in the ’90s, and the Columbia neighborhood that is now a home to our emerging musical and artistic scene.
Inspired by their favorite timeless and classic transistor Bender and Muff-based fuzzes, they tweaked every component they could to squeeze as much performance as we could out of the designs, listened to what our testers and players told us, then forgot about the math and went for the red line. As Lemmy from Motorhead once sang: “You thought you knew the answers/but you only knew the rules.”
To the best of our knowledge, Olympia™ is the first guitar effect pedal to be funded by Kickstarter.com, a fundraising website for creative endeavors. Thanks to the superb support of our campaign by our community of players and friends.
