The Old Blood Noise Endeavors Haunt is a gated fuzz that is capable of a wide array of fuzz sounds. From restrained and nuanced light fuzziness, to granular and biting saw sounds, many textures and character traits can be summoned up with this beastly fuzz pedal.
The Haunt’s primary objective is to fight off your enemies with its gnarly grinding bite – or put your audience into sludgy, doomy ecstasy. Totally your choice, my riff-wielding friend.
The Volume, Gate, Fuzz, Mix and Tone knobs give you access to a wealth of different dirt tones. From open, present and punishing sound to hyper-compressed and spluttery synth-like fuzz tones of doom and gloom. It’s all there and then some!
The Haunt also has two toggle switches – Mode and Low. Mode switches between two combinations of silicon transistors. One is a lower volume, more compressed and harmonic fuzz (toggle to the left) and the other a louder, more open mid-range fuzz (toggle to the right). The Tone, Fuzz and Gate controls all respond in a unique way within each mode. So, mess around with it until you find exactly the fuzz you’re after.
Low switches between a normal signal (toggle to the left) and a bass boosted signal (toggle to the right) and fattens the sound up a bit. Pair that bass boost with the clean-blend option of the Mix knob and you have a fuzz pedal that also plays extremely well with bass.
