FuzzHugger Effects Announces the Pocket Arcade

A five-mode, analog multi-effect, with octaves, glitching, ring mod tones, and fuzz

Mansfield, PA (March 5, 2012) -- The FuzzHugger Pocket Arcade is a five-mode, analog multi-effect, with octaves, glitching, ring mod tones, and fuzz, all packed in a 2.37 inch wide enclosure.

The pedal is a miniaturized version of FuzzHugger's Phantom Arcade, featuring the pedal's three most dramatic knobs and adding an extra mode for good measure. The Pocket Arcade generates an incredibly wide range of unique-but-usable tones: cleanish octave up, ring mod tones, fat and nasty octave down, glitching, phantom octave tones (subtle, disappearing and reappearing octaves), fuzzed out ring modulator tones, and blistering octave up fuzz! So many tones it takes a run-on sentence to cover them!

• Three toggles for five modes, three knobs.
• Professionally printed circuit board.
• Gem button LEDs and flashing blue LED.
• True-bypass switching.
• 9v negative tip adapter power (No batteries.)
• Rugged aluminum enclosure (3.7" x 2.37")

Price: Currently on sale for $175.

It’s easy to gripe about change, but us guitarists have always had to embrace new technology.

California has always been the place of dreams for young Americans: Hollywood, surf music, pop music, psychedelia, hot rods, biker culture, and glam metal. The Golden State’s only real pop-culture competition has traditionally been New York City, and we know that the beaches and forests are better on the Pacific side. Recently, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed an executive order requiring that, starting in 2035, all new passenger cars and light trucks sold in the state must be zero-emissions vehicles. Once again, Cali leads by example, and what once was unthinkable becomes reality. Strangely, this EV revolution reminds me of the emergence of the electric guitar.
