Classic Fuzz Tones -- With More Midrange Bite When You Need It

Plug into the EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Fuzz pedal, and get ready for tones that'll raise the hairs on the back of your neck. This dynamic fuzz pedal features handmade, all-analog germanium/silicon hybrid circuitry, a wide range of EQ control, true bypass configuration, a secure outer chassis with a cool Hoof design, and tone, level, fuzz, and shift controls to dial in the distortion. You'll be surprised by the wide dynamic reach this pedal can bring to your game -- from crispy overdrive to full-blown fuzz, your tone will each new levels of sonic vibrancy.

EarthQuaker Devices shows you all the fuzzy grit you can get out of the Hoof:


Wide Range of Distortion and Fuzz Tones

The Hoof is a flexible pedal -- it traverses a wide range of styles for pretty much any musician of any genre to exploit. If you keep your fuzz pretty low, you can use this pedal as a volume boost with just a slight amount of crisp breakup, and when you push the fuzz to the max, then you're in for a world of earth-shaking fuzz. You also get loads of sustain out of this baby -- a quality that makes it a little more similar to overdriven amplifiers than muff-style fuzzes.

Handmade All-Analog Circuitry

This stompbox features all-analog, handmade germanium/silicon hybrid circuitry for a sound that's based on the character of the classic green Russian muff. Your signal will get lots of fuzzy love and boatloads of organic and natural character that'll attract attention from everyone within earshot. A secure outer chassis with a distinctive Hoof design keeps this baddie's inner circuitry protected through every stomp, and a true bypass system keeps your signal's original character unaffected when your Hoof Fuzz is disengaged.

Tone, Level, and Fuzz Controls

Easy-to-grip and turn tone, level, and fuzz controls are at your disposal to dial in the amount of overdrive or fuzz you're looking for. Your tone control determines how bright or dark your sound becomes, and your level control dials in the decibels. Go anywhere from a light and crispy breakup to a monstrous wall of fuzz in seconds by playing around with your fuzz control. There is a ton of sonic ground to explore when you really get to know how this pedal plays.

Cut Through the Mix with the Shift Control Knob

The shift control on your Hoof Fuzz pedal gives you a little extra edge to control the sonic contour of your axe's sound. This dial lets you change the frequency response of the tone control, mostly on the treble side, while at the same time allowing you to minimize the muddiness that can sneak in around the low and low-mid frequency range of your output. This control allows you to be sure that your engaged tone will make its way through the mix for solos or licks.

EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Fuzz Pedal

The EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Fuzz is a germanium/silicon hybrid fuzz which is based on the character of the classic green Russian muff. It is capable of creating everything from dirty and organic overdrive to monstrous fuzz madness. It features a smooth, natural and harmonically rich sustain that is less associated with muff style fuzzes and has more in common with an overdriven amplifier.

The Hoof Fuzz has some real clarity and distinctiveness that provides a tight and controlled signal that will surely be heard through the mix. The Shift control is secret weapon of the Hoof. It changes the frequency response of the tone control, primarily on the treble side, but it also diminishes any unnecessary muddiness on the bass side too. Scoop the mids or boost them- lots of tonal shaping options are on tap!

The Hoof Fuzz has become a key pedal for TONS of well known artists in both the studio and on stage. All analog, true bypass and made one at time by human hands in Akron, Ohio.
Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great sounding pedal..."
Overall: Great sounding fuzz. It can even give you a nice distortion as well. I love having the ability to control my mids and not just having them "scooped" out. Right outta the box with all knobs at 12 o'clock it even kicks ass.
Style of Music: Shoegaze, Indie, Metal
