We believe that effects pedals should be simple and user-friendly, with lots of practical, useable, and musical sounds, but should also be a launchpad for sonic exploration and aural innovation. Most of all, they should always work correctly all of the time, which is why each and every single EarthQuaker Devices pedal is hand built, hand tested, and guaranteed for life! We use only the highest quality components, but if for some crazy reason your pedal does break, send it back to us and we will fix it for you!

EarthQuaker Devices Hoof V2 Fuzz Pedal
Heavy Fuzz Horsepower - With A Midrange Bite!
Saddle up the EarthQuaker Devices Hoof Fuzz pedal and get ready for tones that'll raise the hairs on the back of your neck. This dynamic fuzz features handmade, all-analog germanium/silicon hybrid circuitry, a wide range of EQ control, a secure chassis with vintage-style graphics, and multiple controls to dial in the distortion. And you'll be surprised by the wide dynamic reach this pedal offers -- from crispy overdrive to full-blown fuzz, the Hoof is more than a one-trick pony.
This stompbox features all-analog, handmade germanium/silicon hybrid circuitry for a sound that's based on the character of the classic green Russian muff. Your signal will get lots of fuzzy love and cartloads of organic and natural character that'll attract attention from everyone within earshot. A secure outer chassis with a distinctive Hoof design keeps this bad horsey's inner circuitry protected through every stomp, and a true bypass system keeps your signal's original character unaffected when your Hoof Fuzz is disengaged.

What to say about the Hoof that hasn’t already been said? Our flagship fuzz pedal can be found on thousands on pedalboards around the world and has rocked countless stages from stinky suburban basements to Madison Square Garden. Twice. The Hoof is loosely based on the classic green Russian muff-style fuzz circuit, and features a hybrid Germanium / Silicon design, pairing maximum tone with maximum temperature stability not found in finicky and expensive vintage units. We hand-match our 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 the same smooth, natural, and harmonically rich sustain as all your friends’ Hoofs. All your friends have Hoof fuzzes, right? The Hoof has a wide gain range, providing everything from dirty and organic amp-like overdrive, to monstrous fuzz madness. This, paired with the “Shift” control allows you total tonal access, as the “Shift” knob works with the “Tone” control to alter the overall frequency response of the Hoof. Use the “Shift” to boost the highs for a glassy, cutting top-end; use it to cut out some low-mid mud; use it to add some thick stoner rock sludge; use it on bass; use it to combat the muff-style fuzz’s notorious “mid scoop;” use it however you’d like, just use it! The Hoof’s distinctive, fuzzy character is tight and controlled without sacrificing any “guts,” so to speak, so even the gnarliest fuzz tones will sit well in the mix. The Hoof fuzz is all-analog, true bypass, and built one-at-a-time by real life human beans with four fingers and a thumb waiting in line for the horsey rides at the rustic frontier land amusement park of Akron, Ohio, USA.

By itself, the pedal is an easy and predictable way to add a dying battery effect. Fully saturated and beyond, it also has a good fuzz tone which can be substantially varied with the "Dirt" and "Tone" controls. A fourth knob controls output level.
This is a fun pedal, and I've actually spent quite a bit of time messing around with it. It can make some interesting sounds, and it works very well with other pedals. And because it's predictable, cool effects can be replicated by simply noting settings. In particular, it seems to work well with a CryBaby wah-pedal, and with an MXR M75 acting as a clean boost to its front-end. I've also discovered some interesting effects when playing with an E-Bow into my tube amp with the pre-amp gain set high.
Another admirable quality of this pedal is its quiet and fairly static-free operation. I place my fuzz and distortion effects inside a Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor loop. Unlike a somewhat similar effect that I also reviewed on Amazon, the Dirt Transmitter doesn't require any noise suppression, and in fact produces a fairly solidly gated sound when the transistor bias is reduced.
The pedal runs off a standard 9-volt connector. It has a modest footprint, and build quality looks good with an all-metal chassis. Removing the back (four screws) gives access to an internal 9-volt battery clip.
Overall, the Dirt Transmitter is a great pedal for adding a dying battery effect, or for getting that "zippery" sound. Turn up the bias, and it's also a pretty good fuzz effect on its own. And since it operates more predictably than some pedals with similar abilities to mess with transistor bias, it's also suitable for creating a reproducible sound, or for working with other effects.
