With an upgraded silent switching system, version 2 of the EarthQuaker Devices Cloven Hoof fuzz pedal is better than ever. By utilizing silicon transistors instead of germanium, the Cloven Hoof delivers the clarity of the acclaimed Hoof pedal, but with a grittier, raunchier character, providing you with a bass-heavy, crunch-infused tone that commands attention. At Sweetwater, we were blown away by the range of this pedal. It takes you from squeaky clean to a fuzzed-out cacophony with a twist of the Fuzz dial. Refined Tone and Shift controls provide plenty of tone-boosting and mid-shaping options, making the EarthQuaker Devices Cloven Hoof v2 an extremely versatile pedal.
