EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Hybrid Fuzz Pedal

Like the six mighty hooves of Thor's chariot pulling rams, The Hoof rains down a colossal amount of Fuzzy goodness from high above. Fatter, Fuzzier, and altogether Bigger than the Big Muff Pi is "The Hoof" from EarthQuaker Devices, the thickest sounding fuzz pedal you're likely to ever hear. Brought to you by the tinkering masterminds of EarthQuaker Devices in Akron, Ohio, these boutique pedals are handmade and fully analog. The Hoof features 4 Tone-Shaping Controls: Tone, Shift, Level, and Fuzz. The Tone and Shift potentiometers allow you to dial in the EQ curve of your liking, shaping the overall amount of treble, bass, and mids present in the tone. While the Level control regulates the volume of the pedal, and the Fuzz control determines the amount of hairy fuzz you want. If you're after one of the best sounding, handmade, fully analog, Fuzz pedals to run through your favorite guitar or bass rig, look no farther than The Hoof from EarthQuaker Devices!


The Hoof is loosely based on the classic green Russian fuzz circuit and features a hybrid Germanium/Silicon design, pairing maximum tone with maximum temperature stability not found in finicky and expensive vintage units. The tinkering masterminds at EarthQuaker Devices hand-matched their 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  smooth, natural, and harmonically-rich sustain.


Shift: This adjusts the mid content, clockwise for scooped mids, counterclockwise for boosted.

This device is true bypass and uses electronic relay-based switching. Audio will not pass without power.

This device takes a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise.
