North Carolina’s scariest boutique pedal company Haunted Labs just unleashed their first distortion pedal, the Old Ruin, which delivers a variety of tones from low-gain overdrive to terrifying howling distortion.
The ubiquitous Gain and Volume knob are joined by a Texture knob that – to quote the builder – “summons sonic nuances from the great beyond.” This is basically a Tone control with more pronounced effects, ranging from silky to searing.

The Old Ruin delivers a broad array of distorted deliciousness, ranging from a somewhat mild overdrive all the way to higher-gain howling.
Offering a user-friendly recipe for mayhem, the Old Ruin supplies three knobs to unlock its vicious tendencies.
In addition to Gain and Volume controls, it includes a specially tuned tone knob called “Texture” for dialing in the pedal’s pugnacious character. “Texture” is much more than just an earthly tone control. It summons sonic nuances from the great beyond. Looking for something silky and stealthy? You’ll find it here. Prefer a stinging, searing experience like a faceful of lava?
Twist the “Texture” knob, wake up and smell the brimstone!
