pedal issue 2020

One of the furriest, foxiest fuzz machines ever is reborn in a compact and more capable incarnation.

 

Ratings

Pros:
Rich, sonorous basic fuzz tones. Controlled but nasty octave effects. Footswitchable octave. Mid-boost option.

Cons:
A few bucks on the spendy side relative to the competition. Footswitches close together.

Street:
$199

Mad modulator? Dipsy delay? Flipped filter? Slippery sequencer? Maybe it’s a tuneful popcorn machine in a box! The PG Alexander Superball review.


Recorded via Shure SM57 and Apogee Duet to Garage Band with Guild X-175 and Fender Vibro Champ.
The first set of arpeggiated passages is played in LFO mode at various rates, depths, and filter settings.
At 0:51, the pedal’s “high” range is altered to generate a bouncier delay.
 

Ratings

Pros:
Capable of switching from conventional to demented sounds. Provokes unorthodox creative decisions.

Cons:
Learning curve can be steep. It can be hard to return to identical settings without presets.

Street:
$199
