The Earthquaker Devices Tusk Fuzz is our fuzz o’ the week. Earthquaker Devices is a cool little boutique pedal company out of Akron, OH that puts out some very affordable and GREAT SOUNDING effect pedals. The EQD lineup is toneful and gets it’s inspiration from many different sources, not just vintage fuzz faces or big muffs.
The Tusk Fuzz is based on opamps and clipping so in many ways the dirt from the Tusk Fuzz sounds like a distortion stomp box. No problem. It’s a great cutting fuzz pedal that is awesome for lead guitar and will give you that bite when competing with a full band.
Fat Tone Guitars has a nice little demo, recorded in-house using a K-Line S-Style Guitar through a Vox Hand-Wired amp.
