The Redbeard Effects Honey Badger is the second release by this new company comprised of seasoned rock guitarist and self-confessed rock & roll gear head, Mikey Demus (of UK based band, Skindred), and internationally renowned pedal designer and manufacturer, Adrian Thorpe (of ThorpyFX).
This is a completely original circuit that picks up where traditional octave fuzzes left off by adding an additional octave down thanks to the Divide knob, which allows you to blend between a combination of -2 and -1 Octaves, whose volume can be controlled via the Octave knob.
A footswitch toggles between fuzz and octave fuzz, while Treble and Bass knobs provide extra EQ options.
Redbeard Effects Honey Badger, Builder’s Notes
Prepare to change everything you know about Octave Fuzz pedals. The HONEY BADGER™ Octave Fuzz is here to demolish the competition and melt some faces! *
Named after the world’s most fearless creature, the Honey Badger™ Octave Fuzz truly does not give a f**k. Thick skinned and unbelievably aggressive, this golden box of doom does not care for pleasantries and goes straight for the tonal jugular.
We took the much loved concept of the Octave Fuzz and got crazy with it. We’re fans of deep down & dirty guitar/bass tones, so adding an Octave down to a gnarly fuzz circuit seemed the clear way to go. But wait there’s more! Why should we settle for one octave when we could add a second octave? So we did that too! Thanks to the interactive ‘DIVIDE’ knob, the Honey Badger™ allows you to blend between a combination of -2 and -1 Octaves for the ultimate subterranean tone experience.
Smash all of that glitchy, subby madness on top of a gnarly, inspiring and interactive fuzz circuit, and you’ve got a truly unique effect that takes no prisoners. Use the Honey Badger™ as a searing Fuzz that will set your tone apart, or combine with the onboard Octave effect for downright ludicrous amounts of fun and creativity.
