KNOBS Tone, Fuzz, Shift, Level
SOUNDS EarthQuaker states the Hoof is based on the Russian-made, greenhued
Big Muff, and it can defi nitely deliver the buzzy, aggro glory of Big Muff
fuzz. But the Hoof ain’t no one-trick satyr. The Shift knob alters the midrange
frequency controlled by the Tone knob, and it’s a powerful weapon
that can deliver searing, hollow, warm, fizzy, bombastic, and klang-glorious
varieties of fuzzy bliss. I was able to dial in everything from Ventures’
“2000 Pound Bee” buzzing to Muse-like caterwauls of sustain.
WHO’S IT FOR? This is yet another versatile fuzzbox that offers a good collection
of sounds for very reasonable bucks. I can’t imagine anyone who is
into fuzz not wanting this baby on his or her pedalboard.
