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.

Source Audio ZIO


Source Audio nicknamed the new ZIO pedal “the Better Box,” which is a fair summation of what this thing will do for your tone. Purists may rant endlessly about the virtues of plugging straight into an amp. But many legendary players understood that a little extra “hot” between guitar and amp can add up to magic. From Jimmy Page’s Echoplex preamp to Brian May’s Rangemaster to Angus Young’s Schaffer-Vega wireless system, a lot of signature sounds have been shaped with a little extra kick—and often from unexpected sources that are something other than simple boosts. Source Audio’s first all-analog pedal is more than a conventional booster, too. And, to some degree, it celebrates these alternate paths to boosting tone.
