A limited edition fuzz pedal to raise funds for the emergency in Ukraine
Durham, NC – April 19, 2022 – Today, Dusky Electronics releases Soniashnyk, a fuzz pedal for Ukraine. In partnership with Reverb.com as part of their “Turn up for Ukraine” initiative, Dusky is donating 75% of proceeds from Soniashnyk to Care International’s Ukraine Crisis Fund.
Soniashnyk is based on Dusky Electronic’s best selling pedal to date, their Augustus octave fuzz, with a twist to get some new sounds. Designer Chris Rossi says of it, “Early in the days of making Augustus there was one pedal that didn’t pass quality control. It wasn’t working right–the octave effect was severely deemphasized–but it sounded cool. So I saved it for a rainy day and now it’s raining. For Soniashnyk, I studied the ‘broken’ Augustus and figured out a way to reliably reproduce and control its dysfunction.”
Soniashnyk, named after the Ukrainian word for “sunflower”, is a limited edition to be sold exclusively on Reverb.com. Soniashnyk will be available for preorder through May 15th, or until all available preorder slots have been filled.
