Classic design with greater reliability.
The Hoof is loosely based on the classic green Russian muff-style fuzz circuit, and features a hybrid Germanium / Silicon design that pairs maximum tone with a temperature stability that proved to be a big problem with the finicky and expensive vintage units. EarthQuaker hand-matches NOS Germanium transistors to exacting specifications for pedal-to-pedal consistency, taking the guesswork out of your fuzz purchase, and guaranteeing that your Hoof delivers its signature smooth, natural, and harmonically rich sustain.
The Hoof has a wide gain range, providing everything from dirty and organic amp-like overdrive to monstrous fuzz madness. Paired with the “Shift” control, this broad range allows you total tonal access, as the “Shift” knob works with the “Tone” control to alter the overall frequency response of the Hoof.
Use the “Shift” to boost the highs for a glassy, cutting top-end; use it to cut out some low- mid mud; use it to add some thick stoner rock sludge; use it on bass; use it to combat the muff-style fuzz’s notorious “mid scoop;” use it however you’d like, just use it! The Hoof’s distinctive, fuzzy character is tight and controlled without sacrificing any “guts,” so to speak, so even the gnarliest fuzz tones will sit well in the mix.
Lots of color and sustain with all the fuzz you want. Order today.
