Himmelstrutz Fetto Nord+ - Great Wide Distortion + Boost


Himmelstrutz Elektro Art

Fetto Nord+ is evil in a pleasant way and very tube-like. A paradox—a transparent tool with definite character and a lot of tonal possibilities. With any of the Fetto pedals it's easy to get crunchy or creamy distortion—at any volume. With the Nord's you also get an independent boost!

Superb string separation, all the way from smooth overdrive into heavy distortion. You never lose the character of your instrument or amplifier and it's designed to match the volume control on your guitar perfectly. Most pedals sounds just like a pedal. Not the case with the Fettos which sound and feel like an extension of your amplifier—Tactilitus Maximus.
