Pigtronix Unveils the Star Eater Fuzz

Debuting at Sweetwater's Gearfest 2022, this all-analog fuzz pedal is designed to provide a wide array of unique tones, packaged in a fun-to-use form factor.


Star Eater is an all-analog, dual footswitch super jumbo fuzz with a foot-switchable booster and variable filter stage, allowing players to easily sculpt a wide variety of fuzz tones. On the fuzz side, newly-available, precision-matched transistor pairs are utilized to ensure that each and every unit is dialed in to “the sweet spot” that can be so elusive to find in vintage pedals.

A rocker switch provides your choice of Germanium or Silicon color. Downstream from the fuzz, a powerful booster stage drives the filter in Star Eater. Scoop and Bump voicings for the filter can be selected via a rocker switch, drastically changing the frequency response of the Sweep control throughout its entire range. Runs on standard 9VDC.
