Legendary Soft Clipping Distortion

BLIZZARD is a modern, improved and enhanced version of one of the first distortion pedals on the market and is also an hommage to one of the greatest rock-guitarists ever that left us too early.

The BLIZZARD is a soft clipping distortion pedal which produces harmonic overtones and "biting" assertive punch without getting too harsh and crispy.

It is best suited for boosting a tube amp to draw the maximum power out of it. It delivers the finest retro sounds, covering from classic distortion to fuzz that are still fascinating and have countless fans to this day.

We designed this pedal with an additional toggle for switching two different types of diodes. Position 1 (left) is perfect for a classic tone, while position 2 (right) produces a more modern sound. Changes might be less obvious since they are merely changes in nuance that the only real experts would notice and appreciate.

The BLIZZARD is a distortion pedal dedicated to the memory of one of the greatest rock guitarists of our generation and specially tailored to meet the needs of skilled players.

All the electronic parts are hand selected for their intrinsic sound quality and long-term reliability. Short signal paths guarantee a fast signal processing and the highest dynamics. Uncompromising quality of our circuitry is complemented with high-quality mechanical parts and components.
