Dusky Electronics Announces the Augustus

Dusky Electronics Announces the Augustus

A newly designed octave-fuzz stomp that offers adjustable low end and a pair of MOSFET amplifiers.

Durham, NC (September 29, 2020) -- Dusky Electronics is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning pedal lineup, Augustus. Soaring leads, synth-like timbres, echoes of ring mod, giant robot power chords, percussive stabs—all of these and more are available with deft manipulation of the HEAT knob and playing technique.

Augustus continues Dusky Electronics’ tradition of designing gear that pays respect to the past, while offering something new. “I designed Augustus without reference to any particular existing design,” says Chris Rossi, owner of Dusky Electronics and designer of Augustus. “Over the better part of a year and countless revisions, I was guided by my own ears to design a circuit that was, above all else, musical and inspiring to play.”


  • A versatile set of controls, enabling a wide range of tones
  • An adjustable low end that can be tailored for any instrument
  • Specially designed input buffer allowing for flexible placement in signal chain
  • MOSFET input and output amplifiers for a responsive, dynamic feel
  • Battery power option

The Augustus retails for $200 and can be purchased online at or locally at select dealers.
