EarthQuaker Devices has introduced its new Terminal Fuzz pedal. From EarthQuaker: "The Terminal Fuzz is a blown-out, busted and all-around destructive fuzz device modeled after my old JAX fuzz. For those not in the know, the JAX fuzz is a re-branded Shin Ei Companion fuzz that is well loved for its buzzy sound."
The Depths is our take on the classic optical vibe circuit. It creates a lush, phasing pulse which delivers a three-dimensional swirling sound. The Depths has been optimized to work well with all types of instrument, pickup types and to play well with dirt.
