EarthQuaker Devices X Boris

That's not the Earth shaking.
It's the Hizumitas.

If you've ever heard—or, rather, felt—the crushing guitar tone of Japanese doom heavyweights Boris, you know the power of the Elk BM Sustainar. That vintage fuzz is reborn in EQD's Hizumitas. The band's guitarist, Wata, has long used one particular Sustainar said to have an even rawer edge than other '70s fuzz circuits. EQD has worked alongside her to bring modern control to this almost-untamable sound.

Key Features of the Hizumitas

Key Features of the Hizumitas

  • The same fuzz tones from Wata's own Elk BM Sustainar
  • Distortion and sustain like '70s V1 Triangle Big Muffs
  • Tone and Sustain knobs that set the right balance
  • Can add tons of extra output volume
  • All through an all-analog signal path

Hear the Hizumitas shake the walls of Andy Martin's studio, and notice how—despite the power—the Hizumitas remains sensitive to his playing dynamics.
