Himmelstrutz Fetto Nord 70+ - Great Old Distortion + Boost


Himmelstrutz Elektro Art

Stomp on Fetto Nord 70+ when you need something rough'n honky, the only needed party sounds to drown your audience and band who's constantly making boring jokes about you. Here we go, girls!

Excellent string separation all the way from smooth overdrive to heavy distortion. The character of your instrument and amplifier won't get lost, only gained. And this one is designed to match the volume control on your guitar perfectly. Most pedals sounds just like a pedal. Not the case with Fetto Nord 70+—that swivel-hipped loudmouth.

Fetto Nord 70+ vs. Fetto Nord+:

  • Fetto Nord 70+ has a more edgy and hotheaded distortion character—more focused/aggressive mid range which makes us think about the great Mick Ronson and the early Eddie Van Halen
  • The knobs on Fetto Nord 70+ are ashtray grey
  • Identical Boost in both models—full range max +20 dB


  • Drive: Overdrive/Distortion control
  • Tone: Tone control (passive treble cut)
  • More: Boost level control
  • Volume: as loud as you'll ever need

  • External Controls: 'Drive', 'Tone', 'Volume' and 'Boost' (pre or post distortion independent boost)
