Pigtronix Star Eater Analog Dual Stage Super Jumbo Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal
FUZZ SCULPTOR WITH AN APPETITE
Star Eater is an all-analog, dual footswitch super-jumbo Fuzz with a footswitchable booster and variable filter stage, allowing players to easily sculpt a massive array of inspiring, unique fuzz tones. On the fuzz side, newly-available, precision-matched transistor pairs are utilized to ensure that each and every unit is perfectly dialed in to “the sweet spot” that can be so elusive to find in vintage pedals. A rocker switch provides your choice of Germanium or Silicon color. Downstream from the fuzz, a powerful booster stage drives the filter in the Star Eater. Scoop and Bump voicings for the filter can be selected via a rocker switch, drastically changing the frequency response of the Sweep control throughout its entire range. Built to last and designed to inspire, the Star Eater brings a unique approach and a new standard of performance to the world of boutique fuzz pedals. Runs on standard 9VDC.
- Hunger: Determines the amount of gain in the fuzz.

- Contour: Changes the shape of the tone.
Back to the Future
Inspired by the chunky chassis feel of the late 70s and early 80s, Star Eater was designed to offer a fun, tactile user experience and make it easy for players to fine tune their own signature fuzz tone.
