Caroline Guitar Company Releases the Hawaiian Pizza

The idea for this pedal originally came from a phone call Nashville producer Dave Cobb.

Columbia, SC (October 26, 2018) -- Caroline Guitar Company, an audio effects design and manufacturer based in Columbia, announced the wider release of its “Hawaiian Pizza” Fuzz-Drive pedal. Originally available only as a one-day limited purchase with fundraising proceeds to benefit the Girls Rock Columbia tuition assistance program, the enthusiastic customer reception and wider interest compelled the company to release the pedal through their retail partners.

“The idea for this originally came from a phone call Nashville producer Dave Cobb had with me about fuzz pedals. I completely misunderstood what he was asking for, and after our collaborator John Snyder at Electronic Audio Experiments came up with the first revision, it evolved further from that” said Philippe Herndon, company founder at Caroline.

The Hawaiian Pizza’s standout features are its fun, range, and versatility from the three simple controls. Users can dial up everything from slightly gritty "cheap tube amp" sounds to crunchier vintage British tones, then turn things up for singing fuzz or spitty, gated blasts. Its design also features an internal pickup simulator, allowing it to be placed anywhere in the signal chain or after a wireless system without compromising its sound, performance, or feel.

As a one-day sale for Girls Rock Columbia, the Hawaiian Pizza raised $1,400 for the program’s tuition assistance program, and continues Caroline’s history of using limited product releases to benefit local nonprofits. Previous beneficiaries have included the Central Carolina Community Foundation, Mental Illness Recovery Center Inc. (MIRCI), and the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy.

Assembled in the USA at their workshop in South Carolina, the street price for the Hawaiian Pizza will be $169.99 and will be available from their retailer network worldwide.
