KHDK KHDK-SB Scuzz Box
Scuzz Box is KHDK’s germanium-voiced fuzz pedal. It provides a singing and powerful fuzz with a bit of gnarly at the flip of a switch. The Scuzz Box is crafted using discrete transistor technology with a meticulously tuned circuit for the highest performance. Inspired by iconic fuzz pedals of the 60’s, the Scuzz Box circuit is enhanced to match the needs of a modern-day guitar player and delight vintage pedal lovers.
The dramatic character of the Scuzz Box shines in its two distinct modes: Scuzz and Fuzz. The Fuzz is a highly dynamic, articulate fuzz tone. Every note is meant to be heard and it cleans up beautifully with your guitar volume. The Scuzz brings a dangerous, unique and biting sound. It is an unpredictable, ruckus velcro-type gated fuzz with a nasty, gnarly and buzzy tone with ripping textures. Thanks to a cleverly-used gating effect, the sustaining notes die quickly with virtually no residual noise. The final sound is mercurial and oscillating with tinges of 8-bit. It’s pretty wild. Note that the Scuzz is too powerful and the sound too highly compressed to be controlled by your guitar’s volume. It can be silent or extremely loud: nothing in between.
The KHDK Scuzz Box is powered by a single 9V battery. You can access the battery connection by unscrewing the bottom plate of the pedal enclosure. Alternatively, plug in an external 9V DC (center negative) power supply.
