The Turd by Dr. No Effects, Guitar Pedal, Fuzz, Distortion
Dr. No releases yet another invention to add to his unique unconventional collection of handmade guitar effects, The TURD Fuzz.
The TURD Fuzz is a shit-shaped pedal (making it a shitty pedal indeed) made of soft foam material, that when stepped on, engages an excellent fuzz effect. The handmade circuit contains a pair of two NOS transistors that generate a nasty old-fashioned fuzz tone that works well with guitar and bass guitar. It’s also equipped with one single internal volume potentiometer that can be tuned with a tiny flat screwdriver – works on a 9v external 2.1mm power-supply.
To top it off, the TURD Fuzz comes with a custom made fly that functions as an on/off indicator. The insect’s eyes light up when stepped on, engaging the effect.
Housed in a custom designed TURD Fuzz box, the pedal is a collaboration between Dr. No and friend/artist Peter van Elderen (Peter Pan Speedrock, Home Steel).
