EarthQuaker Devices Cloven Hoof



Limited to only 46 units in Orange & Gray and only available at Chicago Music Exchange, get this pedal while you can!

The Cloven Hoof is an extension of our popular Hoof fuzz, only more... cloven. We kept the clarity of the Hoof along with the wide range of dirt tones and redesigned everything around it. The Cloven Hoof delivers a grittier, more bass heavy tone with more crunch that can not be achieved with the standard Hoof. We did away with the germanium transistors and replaced them with 4 specially selected silicon transistors for higher gains, cleaner cleans and improved temperature stability. The fuzz control has four times the range of the regular Hoof, it will go from completely clean to an all out fuzz fury with more grind at the top end of the dial. The tone control has been refined to allow a more even sweep with enough mids to handle all the additional low end. The shift control still boosts or cuts the mids and there is still a TON of output on tap. The Cloven Hoof is the perfect solution for those of you who always wished the Hoof had more. Each Cloven Hoof is made by hand in the majestic mountain top village of Akron, Ohio.


  • Fuzz: Clockwise for heavy, counterclockwise for light.

  • Tone: Bass to the left, Treble to the right

  • Level: Use this control to make the Cloven Hoof louder or quieter.

  • Shift: This adjusts the mid content, clockwise for scooped mids, counterclockwise for boosted.

  • Power: Any regulated 9 volt DC power supply with a negative 2.1mm center barrel or any type of 9v battery. Current draw is around 10ma.
