The Barnacle combines the sound of several 1960s and 1970s era fuzz pedals into a single, modern and useful package. We wanted that classic Germanium tone without the hassle of temperature instability and limited frequency response. We accomplished this with modern high quality components and an all Class-A Discrete Transistor design. The Barnacle is proof the High-Fidelity and Fuzz can exist without contradiction. Finally a fuzz without compromise. But wait! There's more! The on-board professional grade active EQ allows you to personally tailor the tone to your taste. Also our switchable bypass system includes an optional buffer or true bypass.
