New for 2018: Saint Doom Fuzz Pedal v2.0
Saint Doom is by far our most popular fuzz pedal, and stock ran out fast for v1.0. This gave us the perfect opportunity to work a little harder and improve an already brilliant thing. Saint Doom v2.0 boasts three controls: Doom, Tone and Volume, rather than v1.0’s simple Doom control. This allows you to choose even more fantastic fuzz tones from an equally tiny pedal. We’ve also updated his look, with printed graphics over a powder coated enclosure. All of this for a stunning price.

We created Saint Doom to follow a three-pronged philosophy; full analogue circuitry, affordability, and simplicity. Analogue circuitry gives a warm, soulful response that digital modelling can only emulate. It’s also far less expensive to produce, which leads on to affordability. Affordability means you don’t have to remortgage your home – or worse, sell any of your existing gear – to get hold of a sinfully good fuzz pedal. Simplicity allows you to dial in a perfect tone quickly, letting you focus on the killer chops that layers of saturated fuzz with inspire.
Kneel. Saint Doom has arisen.
HE WILL FREEZE YOUR HEART AND MELT YOUR FACE
An Avalanche of Brutal Fuzz
It’s not every day you get to use mountainous phenomena to advertise effects, but with Saint Doom, it’s appropriate. He’s got all the thundering fuzz tones you need.
The Doom control on the right gives you access to a great range of fuzz tones. Backing this control off gives you a relatively crunchy, early 70s, Hendrix-type rock tone. Crank the Doom control and you’ll get a full, modern, bass-laden noisewall to rival Sunn O)))’s tones.
We had to slightly bend the laws of physics to do it, but we’ve crammed decades of fuzz into this tiny pedal. It rocks.
The Tone control allows you to tailor your tone even further, ranging from thick, wooly, bass-heavy layers of fuzz counterclockwise, to thin, harsh, broken-amp style treble fizz when turned fully clockwise. In between, you’ll find several sweet spots, and we guarantee you’ll enjoy spending hours exploring them.
Designing Our Fuzz Pedal
Fuzz is a tricky effect to get right. Without careful thought and selection of components, a fuzz can sound sub-par – either with an overly hissy, grating high-end which will hurt your ears, or a muddy, slushy bass that won’t cut through a full band’s noise. However, overthink a fuzz circuit, and you can take away that low-fi, brutal noise element that makes the effect different from overdrive and distortion. We spent many days slaving over Saint Doom’s circuitry until we were left with a fuzz we’re truly proud to call our own.
The Volume control goes from silence at 0, to unity volume at about 1 o clock (just over halfway) to ridiculously loud at full whack. For such a brutal little guy, Saint Doom is loads of fun to have around, so experiment!
True Bypass as Standard
Because Saint Doom isn’t selfish, he’s wired with True Bypass footswitch circuitry, which means that when he’s on, he’s on: but when he’s switched off, his circuit is kept out of your signal path completely, allowing your clean tone to sing through as clearly as always. Unlike some fuzz pedals, Saint Doom uses a standard, centre-negative power supply (the same as Boss or EHX effects) and can be happily daisy-chained with other effects. He’s small enough to fit on even the most crowded pedalboards. He doesn’t cost much at all – pennies compared to some boutique fuzz units – and he’s sexy.
