The guys at Old Blood Noise asked to me give their recent HAUNT fuzz a go. It is an absolutely insane, versatile, mean fuzz option to have in the arsenal. I love it, and have used it weekly in the studio since hearing it. Check it out here: Guitar Demo Bass Demo

Knowing his penchant for tinkering with the guts of his guitars, I recommended perhaps getting a pedal kit so he could build his own. Six months later, he had built dozens of pedals. He was constantly […]
Fuzzrocious sent me a care package to jam on this past week. A pretty cool synthy noise pedal called the ZUUL. Check it out!
