Germanium-voiced fuzz with a gnarly 8-bit twist
In its acid yellow and purple enclosure the Scuzz Box is inspired by the best fuzz pedals throughout the generations, taken to the next level.
“Most fuzz pedals I’ve tried sound cool on high notes, but once you get into rhythm it’s just a wash of fuzz. The Scuzz Box doesn’t mute any notes and maintains clarity.”
– Dave Catching (Eagles of Death Metal)
The Scuzz Box shines in two distinct modes: Scuzz and Fuzz. The Fuzz mode is your go-to, highly listenable sound with top-notch fuzz. Designed to shine through and stand out, this mode is perfect for soloing and long wailing tones, clear enough even for power chords.
The Scuzz mode is where this pedal gets gnarly, dangerous and unpredictable. It delivers a velcro-type gating fuzz with a highly distinct ripping texture and an 8-bit tone.
The Buffer eliminates unwanted oscillation and helps retain clarity, reducing passive signal loss in longer cables. We've made it truly bypassable for easy access.
The Scuzz Box is built on discrete transistors technology with a high-precision circuit for the highest performance, with added internal elements in the bias. Like all KHDK pedals, the Scuzz Box is proudly handcrafted and quality-tested in Kentucky, USA.
The KHDK Scuzz Box is best powered by an external 9V DC (center negative) power supply. Alternatively, insert a single 9V battery. You can access the battery connection by unscrewing the bottom plate of the pedal enclosure. It is time to change your battery when your LEDs no longer glow.
"The best fuzz ever!"
"No other pedal brings a sound like this. It's not for the faint of heart."
"Unlike most fuzz pedals, the Scuzz Box doesn’t mute any notes and maintains clarity."
"Lots of cool things you can do...a nice cross between a gain and Big Muff fuzz sound everyone loves."
