SOUNDS Smoother and fatter sounding
than most fuzz pedals, the Voodoo-XX
packs an outstanding range of ballsy tones.
This pedal doesn’t do sputtery transistor
or ring-modulator-type sounds, but its
sweet, punchy grind can be dialed in easily
for soaring tones with humbuckers or single-
coils thanks to the dual-band EQ and
copious amounts of gain and output on
tap. The ability to blend fuzz textures is
very hip, and the circuit responds well to
your touch and guitar volume dynamics.
WHO’S IT FOR? Players who want a fuzz
that sounds consistent and adapts well
to different styles while preserving the
sound of your guitar.
