Children of Cthulhu

A fuzz box that looks like H.P Lovecraft’s remote control.

Dave, just curious - why were anxious about how this pedal would be received? I think it sounds incredible, and I think the other people that post reviews will be similarly impressed with what it can do. Thanks for the research and effort you put into this one!

Interesting reviews. One question: Can it do doom?

That was a great review HB. I appreciate how you ran it through a variety of amps and guitars and drew comparisons and contrasts. I tend to gravitate towards germanium fuzz pedals and it sounds like this doesn't disappoint. The Meat Head is the one of the few Silicon transistor pedals that really blew me away though and it is in my gig bag wherever I go. Thanks for that.

Great reviews! Thanks to all. I know it's nice to have DAM rareties but I sure hope these make a return from time to time.

I am Chaugnar Faugn, the Elephant God.

I'll bet either Sickle's or the OC81 is Cthulhu.

I love the concept of these as I am a big HP Lovecraft fan.

Smooth, dynamic, fluid violin like sustain, amp like characteristics, warm organic tonez - nope. A blind wolverine on PCP flying a fully loaded B-52 into the side of a volcano, the soundtrack to said event would be Stand Up and Shout by Dio - yes.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.
