sparkle_drive_modIf you’ve been looking for an overdrive pedal that can give your tone amazing clarity regardless of your gain setting than look no further than the Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive MOD. While the clean control allows you to mix your direct signal back in – giving you the ability to create single notes and chords with amazing character and definition – the added MOD switches lets you dial in the several tones from the perfect amount of gain for articulate highs and some aggressive bottom end to a thick and juicy bottom end with smooth highs that are perfect for single-note melodies. All in all, the Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive MOD Overdrive is a stompbox that adds plenty of versatility to your tone that is definitely worth every penny!


Micro Vibe

micro-vibeThe Voodoo Lab Micro Vibe phaser was created to deliver the same juicy, swinging tone as an original legendary 1968 Uni-Vibe. Designed as a Leslie rotating speaker simulator, the original Uni-Vibe circuit is a variation of a four-stage phase shifter. While it didn’t do so well with keyboard players, its unique sound achieved legendary status when Jimi Hendrix used the effect on his Band of Gypsys record as well as during his landmark Woodstock performance of “The Star Spangled Banner.” Numerous recordings by guitar heroes like Robin Trower, David Gilmour, and Stevie Ray Vaughan also helped make the Uni-Vibe a tone classic. To keep things as true to the legendary effect as possible, the Micro Vibe includes the same sinewave oscillator, incandescent lamp and photocells, all of which gave the original Uni-Vibe its signature swagger. With the Voodoo Lab Micro Vibe, you get the same lush, psychedelic colors of the original but in an ultra-compact, pedalboard-friendly stompbox.


Super Fuzz

superfuzz_1The rare Jordan Electronics Bosstone is considered by many to be the ultimate vintage fuzz. The VooDoo Labs Superfuzz starts with this classic fuzz design as its base and adds unique tone and resonance circuits to create an amazing new array of fuzz tones. The tone control delivers a wide spectrum of midrange and bass timbres, everything from an extreme gain scooped tone through a high-energy, bluesy, prominent mid-voicing. The resonance control is a sub-harmonic booster that lets you add an aggressive bottom end not typically found on fuzz pedals. Attack varies the gain from rich and creamy to outrageous. Classic '60s fuzz sounds, unique resonance and tone controls along with true bypass and superior hand-built quality, the Voodoo Lab Super Fuzz is what a fuzz pedal should be and more.


Wahzoo Wah

wahzoo_1One of the most versatile wah's on the market, the Wahzoo combines classic wah tones, a funk-laden Autowah feature, a unique programmable "Stepwah" setting and true bypass (via gold contact relay) to deliver all the wah sounds you'll ever need and more. Boasting all the clarity and expressiveness of the classic, highly sought after Clyde McCoy signature wah, the Wahzoo delivers the same vintage wah tone the helped make the effect so popular decades ago. You’ll immediately notice the throw, taper, and feel to be inherently vocal and musical, just like the originals. in Autowah mode, the pedal takes control and performs the signature implementation of the classic effect. In CREATE SEQ mode, you design rhythmic patterns of up to 30 wah positions and once your done, switch to STEP and the Wazhoo automatically runs through your sequence. You can store 4 custom sequences of your own creation. Plus you can use the treadle to sweep from slow to ultra-fast tempos on the fly. Quite possibly more wah tones and control than you'll know what to do with!
