Fredric Effects unveils BugCrusher analogue sample rate reducer pedal

North London’s Fredric Effects has announced the BugCrusher analogue sample rate reducer pedal.

Packing a BugBrand-designed circuit, the BugCrusher utilises a sample and hold circuit run at audio rates, which produces aliasing effects on your signal.

At high rates, it deploys a fizzle and crunch, while lower rates produce a tone similar to a clean ring mod.

The BugCrusher is available now from Fredric Effects (opens in new tab).

Mike is Editor-in-Chief of GuitarWorld.com (opens in new tab), in addition to being an offset fiend and recovering pedal addict.
