Dusky Electronics Introduces New Augustus Fuzz Pedal
This visually striking unit gives the classic octave fuzz a more modern makeover.
North Carolina-based manufacturer Dusky Electronics has introduced its new Augustus fuzz pedal.
The visually-striking octave fuzz is anchored by four controls: Meat (bass), Heat (gain), Light (treble) and More (volume). It's also outfitted with a high impedance buffer - for placement anywhere in a signal chain without drastically affecting your overall sound - and MOSFET input and output amplifiers.
The Augustus - which also features an adjustable low end - can be used with a guitar, bass or synthesizer.
The Dusky Electronics Augustus will be available starting September 29 for $200. It can be powered by either a 9V battery or a standard 9V power supply.
