Hoof Reaper™
Double Fuzz with Octave Up

The Hoof Reaper™ features our popular Hoof™ and Tone Reaper™ fuzz pedals in one handy enclosure with the added bonus of an old school analog octave up. It was originally released as a special limited run item back in 2010 and demand was so high that we decided to reintroduce it back into our line. Capable of creating everything from subtle octave-up overtones through crushing octave squalls that simulate exploding stacks of amps. Each effect can be used individually as well as in series but the order of effects is preset for optimum performance.

Hoof

Our flagship device! The Hoof is a no-fuss, easy-to-use device capable of sounds from warm, gritty overdrive to a huge, sustaining fuzz. It’s a germanium/silicon hybrid Muff-style fuzz (based on the old green Russian muff) with massive amounts of volume on tap and smooth amp-like sustain. It has a tighter, cleaner sound than most Muff’s which makes it more cutting and discernible in a band setting. The shift control is the key to the Hoof’s character, it alters the frequency response of the tone control. Clockwise scoops the mids and counterclockwise enhances the mids. The Hoof has become the go-to fuzz for many well-known fuzz connoisseurs.

Tone Reaper

The Tone Reaper is a vintage style fuzz device based on the “3 knob” bender. It’s a silicon/germanium hybrid capable of producing a wide range of tones from every bender era with careful tweaking of the Tone and Fuzz controls. From thin and spitty, to thick, growling sustain; it’s all here.

Octave

This is a classic monophonic octave up that will add a swelling octave to the fuzz tone! Since it is monophonic, the effect will be more pronounced when using the neck pickup and playing above the 12th fret.

Flexi-Switching

This device features Flexi-Switch™ Technology! This relay-based, true bypass switching style allows you to simultaneously use momentary and latching style switching.

  • For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass.

  • For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down for as long as you’d like to use the effect. Once you release the switch the effect will be bypassed.

Since the switching is relay based, it requires power to pass signal.


Power

This device takes a standard 9 volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. We always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. DO NOT RUN AT HIGHER VOLTAGES!
