Reverb customers from the United States: Reverb can charge a small fee during checkout. If you want to avoid this fee, place your order on the Decibelics website!

Customers from the UK after Brexit: As of January 1st, you may noticed a drop in the price of my pedals, as the 21% EU VAT is no longer applied to UK orders. However, please note that with the new Brexit regulations, and based on what my recent UK customers reported, UK Customs may charge you 20% VAT and a £12 admin fee. Some reported receiving the pedal at no charge, but they seem to be the exception.

-------------------

Please Note: after a misunderstanding with my paint supplier, the standard black finish of the Angry Swede will be of a different texture/finish for this and the next few batches. Please check last picture. This new (temporary) finish is halfway between the standard black and the Hammered Black finish. Price will remain unaltered. After these few batches, the standard Angry Swede will return to the old finish.

Decibelics Angry Swede is the first and only Mini 'Chainsaw' HM-2 clone ever made.

Now with added Clean Blend control to thicken your tone!

+ Hand-built with high-quality standards Decibelics is well known for, and uses old through-hole components just like in the originals from the 80s. It provides huge amounts of raw chainsaw tone in the most pedalboard-friendly footprint. You won’t believe how big and powerful this little monster screams.

+ With this project, as with the Decibelics Golden Horse Mini-Klon project, my goal was to create not only the first Mini HM2 ever made, but also the most accurate yet improved clone. The perfect HM2. This is what the Waza version should have been!

+ To shape the tone, I used 3 original Boss HM2 as a sound basis, taking the best characteristics of each one and combining them for a rounded, well-balanced HM2 raw fury as used by David Gilmour, My Bloody Valentine, and Entombed.

+ I dramatically improved one of the downsides of the circuit: Background noise. I designed the PCB and carefully chose each component to make it the less noisy HM-2 ever made. It’s even one of the less noisy distortions you’ll ever have! The Angry Swede is the only HM-2 that will save you from buying a new noise gate – It’s amazingly quiet, yet still capable to create monstrous amounts of feedback if needed. Angry AND quiet, quiet AND Angry.

+ Contrary to the original units, which needed a 12V Power Supply, the Angry Swede runs with a standard, widely available 9V Power Supply.

+ Last but not least, I converted it to True Bypass, and kept the last buffer into the effected (non-bypassed) signal, to be true to the sound and feel of the original.

+ The V2 version goes even one step further and adds a Clean Blend knob, that lets you go from only adding a bit of the HM2 EQ to your original tone, to a 50/50 mix, to an 80/20 mix to thicken your sound, to full HM2 chainsaw.

+ Dimensions with jacks: L 95mm (3.74in) x W 49mm (1.92in) – Current Draw: 18mA

+ Accessories included: Black Angry Swede customized shipping box, 4 Rubber Feet, English Manual.

+ New for 2021: All Angry Swedes will mount a new, High-Quality Taiway footswitch rated at 50.000 cycles. This new footswitch has a smaller diameter top. If you want to mount a pedal topper, I recommend the Barefoot V2.

BACKED BY THE CHAINSAW EXPERTS

‘If you are looking for the most accurate clone of the HM-2 I had (with all the good things and some bad things eliminated), this might be your weapon of choice. I literally hear no difference with my late ’88 HM2, and that’s both terrifying and impressive’  Dome – Guitarist for Nightbearer and known HM2 expert/advocate

After the Angry Swede came out and I've got one sent to my place I was really impressed size and soundwise. The only thing I was missing for the way I use the hm-2 sound in my setup was a clean blend. But now this [The V2] And guess what. It has that blend circuit built in that mini housing. 100%clean - >100% buzzsaw, low noise floor, wow. I boost the 70%blended AS with a TS and I am super happy with it. The Interface - Known HM2 expert/advocate

The Angry Swedes are absolutely killer! The size is incredibly handy (how did you get all that to fit in there!?) and they are true to the original but more silent and true bypass, so I’d say they’re the best you can find right now. They ”reek” quality! We’ll of course be using this pedal in the studio, so that alone is a win! Anders Nyström - Bloodbath / Katatonia

ONLY MADE TO ORDER

+ I build them in monthly runs. Every first week of the month I decide how many Angry Swede I’m going to build – depending on the time and stock of components available – and I put them in Pre Order on the Decibelics website and my Reverb store. I build them in the following weeks, until they are finished, tested in the studio and I ship them at the end of the month.

I PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENT

+ I never do temporary sales or discounts, so no single Angry Swede will be sold cheaper than you paid for it, ever.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

+ Every Decibelics pedal is custom signed with the name of the customer on the inner side of the rear plate. Please note that I will write the name that appears on billing address – If you want me to write another name, let me know in the order notes or drop me a message (guillem @ decibelics.com)

+ This is a Pre Order – Your Decibelics Angry Swede will be completed and ready to ship 4-5 weeks after the order is placed. In most cases I ship a bit ahead of schedule, so if you are in the process of moving by the time your pedal is being built, let me know beforehand.

+ I ship from Barcelona, Spain (Europe) – I use UPS, Fedex, and Correos. Tracked and Insured. I use Express shipping only – It costs just a tad more but it’s well worth it: much faster and trouble-free. As I reached a fantastic agreement with my shipping manager, prices are similar or even below most non-express shipping costs. Transit time is usually less than a week, but may vary depending on the destination country. Although almost all recently shipped orders arrived on time, please take into account that during the outbreak some shipments may be delayed.

This is a Pre Order - Check for the estimated shipping date under the Add to Cart button. Your Decibelics Angry Swede will be ready to ship by that date. (Usually ships sooner)
