    Default NPD Black Arts Toneworks Coven



    Now this is a killer pedal, itís the thickest, angriest and most evil sounding Fuzz pedal Iíve ever played while still being massively versatile
    Goes all the way from The Kinks to Black Sabbath to Sleep / High on Fire.
    Itís just so thick without being dull or inarticulate and when stacked with a sub octave pedal it turns into a massive wall of sound.
    Yeah itís pricey, yeah itís big but itís so damn good I canít be mad at it for it.
    If you want anything for that Doomy/ Sludgy sound then just buy this.

    Intriguing. The one dark evil fuzzy pedal to have if you are only having one?

    It's not always dark and evil.

    The right switch and top row of controls are their Black Forest circuit which is really more like a super-tweakable Colorsound Overdriver. I usually have this set for a thick midrangey overdrive that makes palm mutes slug you in the chest.

    The bottom row / left switch is the Pharaoh which is a modified Russian Muff circuit. I own like 7 variants of the Muff and this is by far the most useful and versatile. It's actually capable of a great low-gain rock distortion into a clean amp, but I like it alone for stoner riffs and combined with the Black Forest for leads.

    Not going to be a Tubescreamer clone or a Marshall-in-a-Box but it's not trying to be. If you use 'doomy' amps (60s / 70s tube amps cranked to natural overdrive) this pedal gives you tons of added sounds in one box.

    I can almost guarantee that the settings I use for my Matamps and model T aren't going to work for your rig. It pays to spend time tweaking each knob a lot because his EQ circuit is powerful.
