Hungry Robot Pedals


Let’s face it: there are a LOT of Big Muff-types of fuzz pedals floating around today, along with the true originals, for a whole lotta muff (hehe). So, when we get a pedal in that bucks convention and tries to forage a musical path of its own, we get pretty damn excited. Today’s featured pedal, the [fz] Fuzz from Hungry Robot Pedals, does just that, utilizing a totally unique fuzz circuit that isn’t based on...

The crew over at Hungry Robot Pedals has been known for creating new, unique and innovative effects since their inception in 2012, quickly garnering a reputation for the obscure and awesome. Today’s featured pedal might just be the most unique yet, and is one hell of a fun pedal to play around with. The Kármán Line is a delay and oscillation device that uses a modulating joystick with a heavily filtered delay line that...

In today’s crazy world of ambient pedal obsession, there are more and more incredible machines being produced, and today’s featured piece of gear is a unique and glorious ambient player’s delight.

Although the Moby Dick emulates the sounds and tones...

Sporting only ONE control knob, this pedal is easy to coax great tones from, as well as using the 2 toggle switches to express the true overdriven nature this little blue box has to offer....

Right out of the gate, the Bumblebee from Hungry Robot Pedals had me intrigued. This pedal is being hyped as an EQ-Boost-Overdrive-Distortion-Fuzz, which seems like a pretty tall order to me. But with a few twists of the knobs, I could tell that this thing was a beast, and could deliver on all it promises, and perhaps a little bit more.

The Hungry Robot Dual Overdrive by, well, Hungry Robot Pedals is sick. I’m a sucker for dual-whatever pedals in general, and this guy is no exception. One side is a nice, light overdrive, one side a bit heavier, and the two in combination are an overdriven dream. The Lou Drive starts us off on the left side, featuring Volume, Grit and Tone controls. Sporting a huge range and massive headroom, the Lou Drive can drive you amp as a...
