What we think…
Articulate, growling, throaty fuzz that is a tip of the hat to the iconic 70’s fuzzes with that unmistakable Thorpy twist. The Fallout Cloud delivers all that huge warm woolly tone without sacrificing harmonic richness or loosing the guitar in compressed muddy mid-ness as is the way with its predecessors. Coupled with the ‘bomb proof’ construction, quality components and the distinctive laser etched enclosure, this is next level stuff for those on the hunt for flexible fuzz tones.
A word from the manufacturer
I was asked to create the FALLOUT CLOUD by a number of vintage pedal enthusiasts I know. They were after a Triangle era style pedal that would work with a variety of guitars (Humbucker and singlecoil’s including P90’s) and amps and be bombproof so it could be gigged. The brief was simple, make a triangle era Fuzz that could beat their original 1971 Triangle fuzz pedals when placed head to head.
The brief was simple, the task was not, however after many prototypes and a bit of lateral thinking the FALLOUT CLOUD was born. This pedal has the ability to beat any four transistor fuzz you have heard (including the best vintage units). By adjusting the perfectly voiced EQ you can achieve fuzz tones from silky smooth through to doom laden whilst maintain the ability to cut through.

Internally the pedal is immaculately built using premium 1% metalfilm resistors, Wima and Panasonic capacitors, and Neutrik jacks. These are the crème de la crème of the electronics world and when coupled with a robust gold plated PCB and dust sealed potentiometers the recipe is as good as it can possibly be.
