The Kay Fuzztone
was a quirky treadle-based fuzz pedal from the 60’s, and Black Cat pedals has ushered this idea into the modern era with their Monster-K
, an octave fuzz that is capable of complete sonic mayhem.
The Evil Filter
from Death By Audio
, like all DBA pedals, is weird, unpredictable and undeniably cool. Despite just being a fuzz and a filter, it’s unlike any other fuzz by any other company.
We love it when we get to know a new stompbox manufacturer through a YouTube demo of one of their pedals!

Fuzz, as an effect, seems to inspire pretty gruesome names, and fuzz lovers, who play musical genres that tend to sublimate violence through heavy hitting music, love that.
With regular sized pedals featuring incredibly deep functionality (but still holding on to - as they like to say - an "analog heart"), in just a few years Chase Bliss Audio (established in 2013) has been able to create a new standard for the beloved stompbox format.

There's only one thing that's more powerful than passion: two of them at once!
There are many guitarists who are so into fuzz pedals they can't stop buying new ones that (to the uninitiated) sound ever so slightly different than other ones they already own. It's safe to assume that a considerable...

Based in Albany, Oregon, Pettyjohn Electronics
is a new-ish face in the community of boutique pedal manufacturers, but one that is receiving a certain amount of attention (and flattering reviews). Entirely focused, at least for now, on the dirt and color realms, since 2015 they have been releasing six all analog pedals with...
