Black Arts Toneworks Pharaoh - Fuzz (Later version)

  • 9
  • Positive: Very versatile Fuzz, three modes each useful for different sounds. Very clean signal and well built unit. Takes a pounding!

DOD Boneshaker (designed by Black Arts Toneworks)

  • Positive: Best preamp/distortion ever. Buy two!

Electro-Harmonix Small Stone - Phase Shifter

  • Positive: My favourite phaser, not too noisy and I've learnt to deal with the tone and volume suck at turn on

Ibanez TM5 Thrashmetal (V1 Metal Box)

  • 8.5
  • Positive: Great drive through dark sounding amp, quite trebley and a bit noisy. Use on 0 drive for cleanish boost or full on for THRASH!!!

Jimi Hendrix JH-3S Octave Fuzz

  • Positive: Nasty fuzz, love it.

Morley Slimline Series SLWA Wah

  • Positive: Ace wah, very throaty with a wide range suitable for bass or guitar. Sounds great.

Radial BigShot ABY Amp Switcher

  • 9
  • Positive: Does exactly what it says, clean signal, no noise issues. Phase, lift and Iso switches invaluable

TC Electronic Alter Ego x4

  • 7
  • Positive: Mega multi delay pedal, great sounding delays, multi tap, tap tempo. If only the looper mode could be accessed more easily...

TC Electronic PolyTune Mini (V1)

  • 9
  • Positive: Tracks nicely and very visible on stage. Easy to use in different tunings and Poly mode.


Big Knob Pedals Fuzz Barn - Germanium Fuzz with Self-Oscillation and Feedback

  • 6.5
  • Positive: Veroboard clone of FFactory, annoyingly difficult to get right and annoyingly wide on pedal board. Some nice sounds if you duct tape it!!!

Bogner Amplification Ecstasy Red

  • 8.5
  • Positive: Very versatile from gentle gentle to fairly crushing distortion. Lots of mids and highly responsive - Like another pair of amp channels

Electro-Harmonix Nano Bad Stone - Phase Shifter

  • 9
  • Positive: Love it! Compares very well to late 70's version just not as warm. Compared to modern SS nano, much brighter, more sparkle to sound. Lush.

Electro-Harmonix XO Little Big Muff Pi

  • 2x
  • 7
  • Positive: Simple silicon Fuzz, goes from all out to gentle, almost bluesy. Noisey in operation, good with a gate though. EHX?

Electro-Harmonix XO Stereo Pulsar

  • 7
  • Positive: Clicky sound on engage, slightly noisy in use. Stereo split is nice is use but makes it difficult to set up in mono

Ibanez DL10 Digital Delay

  • 7
  • Positive: Fairly simple, clean repeats with a small amount of decay. Nice over distorted guitar or layered with another for unsynced multitap

Jimi Hendrix JH-2S Classic Fuzz

  • 7.5
  • Positive: Nice Fuzz Face update, has mini pits inside for bias and sag. Can be set high and backed off with guitar volume, very pick responsive.

Line 6 DL-4 Delay Modeler - Programmable Delay & 14 Second Loop Sampler

  • 2x
  • 7.5
  • Positive: Good delays and looper quantizes well. Like the big knobs, make it useful to switch on the fly. Can have software and hardware issues though

Malekko Ekko 616 Dark

  • 9.5
  • Positive: Awesome Delay pedal, very 'big' sound, love the modulation. Wish I still had it...

Malekko Wolftone Sloika - Multi-Band Distortion (V1)

  • 7.5
  • Positive: Very dark sounding drive, can sound great through bright amp. Noise free and predictable, well built and great after sales if required

Morley PWO Power Wah (This one, mains powered big box)

  • 8.5
  • Positive: Huge sweep, distinctly different to Crybaby far more precise. Built like a tank but too big for pedalboard must sit at side.

Pro Co Rat (Big Box 90's RI, No LED)

  • 8
  • Positive: Classic gnarly distortion, modded for extra low mid filtering. Tight, focussed and touch responsive

Way Huge WHE401 Swollen Pickle MkII Jumbo Fuzz

  • 6
  • Positive: Very versatile Big Muff circuit, impossible to keep tones and annoying that trim pots have huge affect on tone. Wanted to love it but...
