FuzzHugger(fx) Phantom Arcade



The Phantom Arcade adds a unique oscillation mode to the already crazy-versatile Phantom Ring! Arcade sounds, filtered sounds, and even crazier octave tones! An amazing amount of useful, usable, and unique tones...and an incredible amount of fun!

The Phantom Ring generates a wide range of unique-but-usable octave and ring modulation effects. Semi-clean octave up, ring mod tones, funky gated cleanish tones, fat and nasty octave down, glitching, heavier fuzz ring modulator tones, dark fuzz, nasty fuzz, and blistering octave up fuzz! (So many tones it takes a run-on sentence to cover them!)

Interactive and versatile, the Phantom Ring delivers unique and refreshing tones with a range that goes far beyond your normal guitar pedal.


  • Mode One: Slightly dirty octave up with ring mod tones and artifacts, with Intensity control and highs filter. (Use your neck pickup for the best tone! Octave up is especially pronounced above the 12th fret! Rougher and even dying tones achievable with the Intensity control.)
  • Mode Two: Octave down, a more intense ring mod, glitch tones, and fuzz tones, with Level and Voice mod to activate octave/glitch.
  • Mode Three (outside toggles on): Octave up fuzz! Blistering octave up, nasty fuzz, and high gain. (You'll likely want both the Filter and Voice Toggles activated.)
  • Arcade Mode (middle toggle + both footswitches on): The anything-goes insanity of an arcade filled with phantoms! Controlled with the Oscillation knob, toggles, and Intensity control. Video game sounds, filtered fuzz tones, and more!

Best placed first (or at least early) in your effects chain, with no buffered bypass in front of it or active pickups. (This is for Mode Two, which functions on impedance--the better your signal, the more dramatic the tones!)
