KEELEY LOOMER FUZZ REVERB ANNIVERSARY CHAMELEON LIMITED EDITION

When I was talking to the guys at Keeley during the development stage of this pedal I felt inspired before it even hit my desk. Sure enough, when the finished product arrived it was a dream come true. It is 100% the best pedal for the perfect Shoegaze sound.

Three Reverb options and three-way selectable Fuzz EQ with the option to run them separately or together for the ultimate washed out fuzzy dream. Easily in my top 5 favorite pedals of all time. Hi Robert!

OLD BLOOD NOISE ENDEAOVRS DWELLER PHASE REPEATER

I've never been a huge phaser guy, but Old Blood Noise made me a believer with a very unique take on a somewhat classic concept. The ability to mix delay in the phase wave shapes is what made me love this effect. I got lost in those soundscapes and never wanted to find my way out. Hi Brady!

CAROLINE HAWAIIAN PIZZA FUZZDRIVE PEDAL CME EXCLUSIVE ARMY GREEN

 I love the dual transistor circuit that allows you to get a tasty sputtery fuzz sound. The voltage control allows you to dial in a nice sustain with a hint of breakup giving you everything from Sonic Youth crunch to Kyuss stoner rock fuzz riffs. Also a Pizza themed pedal gets my vote 100% of the time. Hi Philippe!
