Hungry Robot Pedals Releases the Hungry Robot (hg)

An original circuit designed to push the limits of what a high gain overdrive can do.

Cedar Falls, IA (September 29, 2015) -- The Hungry Robot (hg) is an original circuit designed to push the limits of what a high gain overdrive can do. It promises unprecedented tonal quality and versatility that can’t be found in other high gain overdrives. This is not to be confused with its low gain namesake (the original Hungry Robot); this circuit travels far beyond its low-gain amp-like counterpart into the world of high-saturated distorted tones. The problem that most high gain overdrives face is a flabby, undefined low-end. The tone stack in The Hungry Robot (hg) works to tightens the low end and emphasize the mids and highs. Most of the original Hungry Robot’s success is owed to the unique internal controls. Like the original, The Hungry Robot (hg) has its own set of 6 internal dipswitches that allow you to drastically shape the overall sound of the pedal to fit any rig and playing style. Set to release on 10/1/15.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
