EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Fuzz Germanium/Silicon Hybrid Fuzz V2


The Hoof Fuzz is EarthQuaker Devices' flagship fuzzbox, becoming a fast favorite among musicians of all stripes shortly upon on its initial release. Its loosely based on the green Russian-style muff circuit and features a hybrid germanium/silicon design, with NOS germanium transistors that are hand-matched to exacting specs for consistency from pedal to pedal. Tonally, the Hoof promises a wide gain range enhanced by its shift knob, which works with the tone control to alter the pedal's frequency response—whether that's cutting out low-mid mud, boosting highs for a glassy top-end, or adding stoner rock sludge. Whatever your fuzz needs, the versatile and shapeable Hoof can accommodate you.
