Overview

The DOD Carcosa Fuzz pulls from the playbook of vintage Maestro silicon fuzz boxes from the 1970s...but don't go and think that this pedal is just another clone. Switchable "Hali" and "Demhi" modes take this pedal from a bright, subtle fuzz to unbridled destruction, both of which can be extensively manipulated with the unique "Before" and "After" controls. These unassuming knobs work interactively to bias the fuzz with a number of sweet spots between both dials. When the Carcosa is really ripping and the treble gets to be a bit too much, simply roll around the hi-cut control to tame it down or even lop off the entirety of the high frequency spectrum for a lo-fi stoner rock sound from another era.

  • From buzz to breaking-up splatter.. love this pedal!

    When I cranked it up, it reminded me of that insane fuzz from the 80s band "We've Got A Fuzzbox And We're Gonna Use It!" (1st album). If you want Fuzz that sputters, spits, and breaks-up and sounds as dirty as it can get, this pedal will do it. What's great is, this pedal has many sounds inbetween as well. More versatile than I had expected, which was a nice surprise.

    Seriously sounds better, and is just as flexible than nearly every 'boutique' pedal I've tried, and for half the price (if not more depending on what you're looking at). Just like boutique pedals, it even produces sounds that you'll think are cool, and will 'sell you on the pedal', but that you'll …

    Great fuzz for the money, I much prefer it to my previous fuzz, EQD's Dirt Transmitter. Very tweakable, depending on amp/pickups, not a bad sound in this box.

    I've played some fuzzes over the years. Never too impressed. The Carcosa is a unique creature. On my half stack, it adds a nice boost in addition to the smooth fuzz. Big fan of Lovecraft, Bierce, and Chambers, so that doesn't hurt. The Before and After give you a lot of tonal options. Price is not…
