Austin based Enormous Door – who participated in our Austin Stompbox Exhibit and will be with us at Summer NAMM as well – specializes in rather extreme distortion pedals.

They recently launched the FOAD, a classic distortion with amp-like realism, good for Huge Rock/Metal rhythms and blazing solos.

With adjustable bias control, this pedal allows you to achieve the cranked sounds of your favorite tube-amps. Class A for smooth compression and responsive touch, singing with even-order harmonics. Class AB for more headroom and tighter bass response. This pedal is said to “drive the front end of most amps with jaw-dropping sonic magic and beautiful heavy distortion” – we can’t wait to try it, it sounds like the heavy distortion everyone’s been waiting for.

Hopefully we’ll get a demo video of this pedal soon – you can find some audio samples here) but in the meantime you can check out a demo of another of their fuzz pedals, the SCUD – see below. – Gus Green
