“If you’re looking for a pedal that can handle anything from classic fuzz tones to a modern high gain fuzz your search is over.”
The Whaler is an original Matthew Effects circuit and is great for guitar or bass. It can take you from worlds of velcro to warm dark chasm’s of fuzz’s of old. Its dynamic tone controls will allow you to create unique and original sounds that help set you apart in the mix.”
At NAMM 2019 the young UK builder introduced V2, which features a completely redesigned sustain control and an extra gain stage and – of course – a very sexy dark enclosure!
Here’s the list of controls:
Output – Volume of the effect
Sustain – Controls amount of fuzz
Squish – Control bias of the fuzz
Tone – Turned clockwise, increases highs and decreases lows and vice versa
Body – Lets you scoop the mids
Here are a bunch of demos of it:
And this is the demo owner/designer Rick Matthews shot at our Stompbox Booth!
Here’s a video of V1.
