Hull, Quebec (September 9, 2012) -- Fairfield Circuitry is proud to present the newest addition to its fast growing collection of robust and unique sound modifiers.

The Unpleasant Surprise offers a distortion palette ranging from seemingly infinite sustain to sputtery farts; from velcro-like, ripping fuzz to ear-wrenching compression. All original and in the spirit of surpassing expectations, this pedal is for musicians who embrace the discomfort of stepping outside the box as an essential tool in creating music.

Says Fairfield Circuitry: "Reminisce about the time you got your shoulder caught in the reciprocating saw while this unit destroys your slick jazz lines."

  • Continuous control of output level (VOLUME) and gate threshold (ONSET)
  • Three toggle switches for Tone, Gain and Crush control

  • High input and low output impedance for optimal interfacing

  • Typical 9V input
  • True bypass
