The pedal boasts an original fuzz circuit, independent octave up, and an optional noise gate.

Chicago, IL (June 28, 2018) -- Chicago-based boutique builder Daredevil Pedals has teamed up with legendary musician Earl Slick (David Bowie, John Lennon, etc) to release a signature fuzz/octave pedal named the Daisho, which is the Japanese word for "dual swords." It's a fitting name for this pedal which boasts an original fuzz circuit, independent octave up, and an optional noise gate. All hand wired in Chicago by owner Johnny Wator.

  • Volume - master level of pedal
  • Depth - controls amount of low end

Playing in the pocket is the most important thing in music. Just think about how we talk about great music: It's "grooving" or "swinging" or "rocking." Nobody ever says, "I really enjoyed their use of inverted suspended triads," or "their application of large-interval pentatonic sequences was fascinating." So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
