Solar Guitars Releases the CHUG

The Company founded by Ola Englund has developed a new high gain pre-amp pedal with noise gate.

Solar Guitars Vice President and product developer, Joe Delaney notes, “…totally intense project, a true team effort. Between the actual metal approach to the industrial design and the aggressively expansive feature set including multiple gain shaping options and a Noise Gate, we made something very special for the metal community in that it was created with a single goal…to Chug.”. Ola adds, “I always wanted the sound of a raging amplifier in pedal format, and we got it right with the CHUG. It answers the question that has been asked for ages… IT WILL CHUG!”
