Louisiana-based pedal co Rougarou Pedals has announced The Umibōzu, an LED-based fuzz that crosses over into distortion territory.
Three controls handle the tone - drive, tone and volume - and Rougarou is promising great clarity on guitar and bass, with no lost attack even at max gain.
Oh, and in case you're interested, an Umibōzu is a supernatural Japanese folklore creature that capsizes ships of sailors that anger them. Every day's a school day.
This handmade stompbox is available now for $150 - head over to Rougarou Pedals for more.
