Dirty Haggard Audio Releases the DH-2 Deathfuzz

A fully redesigned circuit based on the classic FY-2/Jaxx fuzz.

Portland, OR (December 13, 2018) -- Dirty Haggard Audio introduces itself to the world with an over-the-top gated fuzz. Yes, the kind you can’t bring home to mama. A fully redesigned circuit based on the classic FY-2/Jaxx fuzz, the DH-2 Deathfuzz mercilessly mutilates your guitar signal while refraining from dumping hiss and other noises into your signal path.

This highly-refined pedal is meant to feel equally at home on a hobbyist’s pedal-board, as it would in a professional recording studio. All the fuzz—None of the hiss, hum, and buzz.

Features:

  • Switchable noise-gate
  • Aggressive power-supply noise filtering
  • 2-stage radio-frequency rejection
  • Unique filter control which focuses on low-mids and highs
  • Highly distinguishable tone
  • Super bitchen artwork!

All DH-2 Deathfuzzes built by hand in Nick’s Portland workshop under the watchful eye of Orbit the quality-control dog. Available for $155.00 at dirtyhaggard.com

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
