A modern take on the classic octave fuzz produces clean ring mod-like clang, synth-like timbres, and soaring fuzz tones
Durham, NC – September 29, 2020 – Dusky Electronics is proud to announce the newest addition to its award-winning pedal lineup, Augustus. Soaring leads, synth-like timbres, echoes of ring mod, giant robot power chords, percussive stabs — all of these and more are available with deft manipulation of the HEAT knob and playing technique.
Augustus continues Dusky Electronics’ tradition of designing gear that pays respect to the past, while offering something new.
“I designed Augustus without reference to any particular existing design,” says Chris Rossi, owner of Dusky Electronics and designer of Augustus. “Over the better part of a year and countless revisions, I was guided by my own ears to design a circuit that was, above all else, musical and inspiring to play.”
- A versatile set of controls, enabling a wide range of tones
- An adjustable low end that can be tailored for any instrument
