[review] Red Witch Factotum - Bass Suboctave Drive (by JFHerregat)


We have another pedal from New Zealand’s Red Witch Pedals. The pedals are designed by Ben Fulton, founder and creator of Red Witch, and are all analog. Last time I reviewed the Zeus, which was a bass fuzz suboctave. Today I hold it’s brother, the Red Witch Factotum, a bass suboctave drive. It houses the same octaver as the Zeus but has an overdrive instead of the fuzz.

[review] Zorg Effects Glorious Basstar (by JFHerregat)


Zorg effect is a French brand of handcrafted pedals. They have a very distinctive look, with the metal boxes covered with a wooden plate. It took me a while to get used to it, but now I’m in love with that look! What makes them extra cool is that you can order them both as a finished product or as a DIY kit (4 different kinds, more on that later). The Glorious Basstar is an overdrive pedal unlike any other: it gives you full control over your sound. No more loss in the low end!

[review] Fuzzrocious Ram The Manparts (by Tim)


At NAMM the guys from Fuzzrocious brought their Ram the Manparts with a bit of a twist; the pedal now comes in blue instead of red and has a slightly different wording as well. To give you a quick overview; this is an extreme fuzz pedal, even at moderate settings (around 12 o’clock) and is probably best suited for people with an appetite for destruction. It features a volume control, a boost toggle and also a “voltage sag”, which basically means that you can starve the chip inside to get some interesting sounds. Turn the right dial all the way down and your sound will completely disappear!
