Redbeard Effects Releases the Honey Badger Octave Fuzz

An aggressive fuzz mixed with a switchable sub-octave mode.

Brighton, United Kingdom (February 19, 2020) -- Redbeard Effects is a guitar effects company based in the UK. Offering highly engineered hand made products, Redbeard Effects is the conjoined brain-child of seasoned rock guitarist and self confessed rock & roll gear head, Mikey Demus, and internationally renowned pedal designer and manufacturer, Adrian Thorpe.

Redbeard Effects claim that subtlety is not their strongpoint. Seeking to channel 20 years of experience in international touring & studio recording into effects pedals with a difference, Redbeard Effects are bringing new and exciting tones to guitar players. “I’ve always been inspired by effects that make you think ‘WOW!' when you stomp on them.” Says co-owner Mikey Demus. “We’re not looking to go where others have gone before. Whether you’re into blues, rock, punk, metal, doom, ambience, pop, or making weird and wonderful noises - whatever your thing is, we’re here to push the envelope of what a pedal can do for you."

Fresh off the back of the release of the Red Mist MKIV (an original and versatile medium to high gain distortion pedal), Redbeard Effects introduce the Honey Badger Octave Fuzz. The Honey Badger boasts a massively aggressive fuzz circuit combined with a footswitchable sub-octave mode which can add 1 or 2 octaves down, or a combination of both.

Designed to be both hugely inspiring and frankly insane, the Honey Badger oozes gobs of glitchy, monophonic goodness and aims to provide an exciting and original effect for guitar, bass, synth - or anything you plug into it.

The Honey Badger Octave Fuzz was also designed to seamlessly integrate into your analogue, digital or hybrid rig, and includes modern features such as a compact yet durable chassis and top mounted jacks for maximising pedalboard real estate.
