Sitek Guitar Electronics Releases the Pandora Fuzz

Designed to be a versatile, high-gain fuzz that offers a variety of original tones ranging from warm classic fuzz to a rich, top-end sound and when goosed, a natural, upper octave becomes prominent.

Gdynia, Poland (April 25, 2019) -- Sitek Guitar Electronics has just unveiled a new addition to their line of “Sound Muses” pedals. Pandora Fuzz is a versatile high gain fuzz pedal allowing to dial in a variety of original tones ranging from warm fuzz to top-end rich sound and anything in between. Increasing the gain saturates the distortion and increases sustain.

When Pandora’s box of fuzz is opened even more, a natural upper octave becomes more prominent. Five simple controls provide fine-tuning and variety of tonal options. Pandora is suitable for both live and studio applications.

Pandora Fuzz offers the following features:

  • 100% discrete analog circuit
  • Five carefully designed gain stages
  • 5 simple controls: Level, Fuzz, Tone, Color and a Switch to choose between two clipping modes
  • DeMont Smooth-Click Footswitch (the highest quality footswitch on the market)
  • Powdercoated enclosure to withstand tough stage conditions
  • Reverse polarity protection
  • True Bypass
  • Power supply 9V DC

Pandora Fuzz is available to purchase on or directly from the Sitek Guitar Electronics website at and carry a price of $169.

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
