The first time I used this pedal I came quite close to vomiting on myself. Not because of any negative qualities of the pedal itself but rather because of the previous night’s festivities and that I had set the Volume knob at about half way. Needless to say this pedal is quite loud.
The pedal itself is handmade in Portland Oregon and boasts two pedals in its housing; the Torns Peaker and the Soda Meiser. Sitting squarely in the sonic territory of Big Black, My Bloody Valentine and The Jesus and Marry Chain and coupled with a very high output this pedal is not for the sensitive soul. The pedal features independent volume and tone knobs for each fuzz circuit. This allows for plenty of interaction between the two circuits. The Torn’s Peaker circuit at its tamest sounds like the chainsaw tone of Steve Albini. With the tone knob at quarter past the pedal begins to sound much thicker, akin to an EHX Big Muff. The Soda Meiser circuit provides and octave fuzz effect. Both circuits can be stacked together by toggling the bypass and aptly titled “more fuzz” switches. This creates a wall of squirming popping fuzz of monstrous proportions. If you love Fuzz then this pedal is for you.
