The pedal blends the cocked-wah signal into the two-channel gain stage.

Chicago, IL (July 27, 2017) -- Chicago-based boutique builder Daredevil Pedals has introduced the new Cocked & Fearless pedal. Joining the power of the Fearless Distortion and the modern classic Atomic Cock pedals, this 2 in 1 allows players to blend the cocked wah signal into the 2 channel gain stage. Noted for it’s rich and natural sounding distortion, the Fearless dishes out everything from light breakup to fully slammed heavy gain. Coupled with the endless tonal potential of the wah’s EQ sweep and blend controls, this is a powerful rock n roll weapon for any and all guitarists.


  • 2 channel op amp distortion
  • Fixed wah circuit with independent footswitch
  • Wah signal level can be blended into the distortion circuit
  • 2 year warranty
  • Runs on 9V DC jack
  • True Bypass, Hand Wired in Chicago

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one.

I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days.
