Thug DeLuxe

Tweakable three-knob version of the Thug, based on a tweakable three-knob version of a pedal based on the pedal the Thug is based on. Make sense?

This isn't just a Thug with a tone control, and don't expect more fuzz than the one-knobber. The Attack control lets you decrease the fuzz, but doesn't offer more. The Filter control adds a bit more interest - at 12 o'clock it's around the same as a standard Thug. Wind it clockwise and you pump more bass, which in turn pushes your output more. Wind it back and you thin it out.

Perfect partner to a fat tube amp and a detuned guitar. Doom flavours from crunch to buzzsaw.

Configured for vertical board-mounted pots (roud shafts) for minimal wiring and easy enclosure mounting. Feel free to wire up 'normal' splined pots.

Love it! 5 product stars
"Great sounding thick fuzz but still plenty of articulation and the added controls give you more options. Can be used as a cool sounding overdrive or massive wall of doomy fuzz, I love it! Really easy build as well thanks to board mounted pots, not many components. I did the normal Thug as my first build but prefer this one and it's just as easy really, can't fault it!"
