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.

Gain is fun in all its forms, from overdrive to fuzz, but let’s talk about a great clean tone.


We’re all here for one thing. It’s the singular sound and magic of the stringed instrument called the guitar—and its various offshoots, including the bass. Okay, so maybe it’s more than one thing, but the sentiment remains. Even as I write this, my thoughts fan out and recognize how many incarnations of “guitar” there must be. It’s almost incomprehensible. Gut-string, nylon-string, steel-string, 12-string, 8-string, 10-string, flatwound, brown sound, fuzztone…. It’s almost impossible to catalog completely, so I’ll stop here and let you add your favorites. Still, there’s one thing that I keep coming back to: clean tone.
