If you're looking for a a different kind of dirt box, check this one out. Sitting somewhere between an OD and fuzz, the House Amp is a unique addition to any guitarist's arsenal. This pedal aims to replicate the sound of a blown-out stereo system, giving your guitar a gritty, distorted sound that will set it apart from other distortion pedals. It's perfect for heavier styles of music such as metal or punk, but it's also versatile enough to be used in other genres, adding a touch of grit and character to your playing.
This pedal was everything I had hoped. The shipping was fast. I even put the wrong shipping address and when I sent the correction email they responded in minutes.
I’ve never been a fan of Fuzz until this pedal. Absolutely outstanding!! Love it!
I’ve never got along with Fuzz pedals but this is awesome. Admittedly I’m using more to the crunch overdrive side than fuzz. But ever sound sounds great on it.
Great pedals, loads of fun for studio and live. Patrick needs to label inputs/out and orientation of 9v jack and respond to emails
This pedal is amazing. Perfect tones for post rock and fuzzed out shoegaze. The feedback control is awesome. So much fun and inspiration. I love it!
Just the tight tone and fuzz. Love it! Simple to use and sounds great. One of the best Fuzz pedals I've ever touched.
Nice addition to my pedal board. I have a pedal that can also spit out random staticky artifacts, but it is really an overdrive that doesn't play well with my other overdrives. The Scrape Flutter is something I can add on top of any of my overdrive or fuzz pedals. I like having something I can add in as desired. It does work best if fine tuned to the specific other pedal I have on, but can also just be cranked up to always be spitting out some random noise. And the tape wobble thing is great too.
Mid-Fi does reactive pedals like no other. Yeah, yeah, yeah...cleans up with your volume pot. Thanks, Andy, we get that. And drives harder when you play harder? Been there. Got the t-shirt.
But pinches and blooms like a red-hot 6L6 in a 5E3? Layers harmonics of all persuasions on your still audible core tone...but in varying and changing orientations, volumes and saturations? This is different.
If you want real dying tube drive and fuzzy edged distortion at ANY level...or a tone sweetening edge that sags even the stiffest of solid states then look no further. Pour some sugar on and toast to taste!
You know that scene in The Matrix when Neo fails the jump test and faceplants into the asphalt (that's tarmac to us Brits)? Well that instant where he should be street pizza but is instead caught, sucked down, hugged and spat back up by the flexing road...only to slap his noggin painfully right back down onto the now rehardened road...well that's exactly how this pedal feels.
No matter how low you go, no matter how hard you hit it, it just stretches, flexes and holds your tone before throwing it back out there with JUST the right amount of sag...but then slaps it, like a wet-towel flick to the butt, with an edge that is almost Albini in it's brutal honesty.
The DRIVE here-in goes from warm prickly OD/distortion all the way to throaty bark. Like a real BARK. Almost yappy. It has a tangible aggression, even at bassier EQ settings. And that EQ? For 3/4 of the dial it finds and sweeps that prickly edge to the warmth, giving it just enough cut and taking out those flubbier freqs...and then it does the McClusky/Jesus Lizard/Shellac thing and hard-shelves that low, low end whilst carbonizing your upper mids into a metallic razor wire tone. It clangs with the best of them.
But there is refinement and balance to this instrument of bass brutality as the VOLUME pot actually shows restraint! This does not throwing huge amounts of boost at your amp/DI but instead adds a growing warmth and sag like peeing your pants on a cold and frosty day...and sweetening even the harshest of EQ dial-ups as it does so.
Then just adjust BLEND to taste/rig...and you have a TINY, TINY pedal...built like a tank...that gives you a threatening growl of OD...to a snarling bark of distortion...to a glassy gouge of sharp clanging cut. And a plethora of sonic stops in between.
This is pedal creation and circuit bending done right. Smart, sexy, robust and oh so surprising. Pure quality!
amazing pedal, very versatile. it can be a nice clear crunch or a nasty fuzz, anything you need.
Great price on a faithful reproduction of a legendary pedal which has become difficult to find. It sounds and functions like the original. Excellent communication and service, fast shipping. Item was well packaged for shipment.
Lots of interesting sounds possible out of this pedal. You can get the LoFi Radio thing going, the old Wire Recorder (or wildly fluttery Ampeg machine) thing going. But, lots more possible as well. Can't predict what you'll get if when you flip types from A to B. Fun with possibilities.
Understood that the Clari Pirate is a combo of pitch Pirate and clari(not), but does anyone know that if it has all the capability of the deluxe pitch Pirate? Think it’s missing some knobs.
This is my fourth Caroline pedal and quite possibly my favorite. Pre-dirt, post-dirt, end-of-chain. It doesn't matter, there's no bad spot on the the board for this great reverb. Whether you like the icons or not, Météore is intuitive, highly versatile and a lot of fun to play. And the built-in gain stage is not to be overlooked. It provides just the right amount of edge and push to really complement the reverb. Météore is flat out great.
