The Dwarfcraft Devices Eau Claire is a fuzz pedal that enacts a reckoning apropos other fuzz pedals. More specifically, the pedal does what other fuzz pedals have ignored to their own detriment: provides a stable mid-scoop for characteristically jagged tones that sound right at home in a metal composition. Despite this simple but effective new feature, the pedal is inherently versatile: engaging the bypass switch enables the Eau Claire to sound more like a traditional fuzzbox, while a Timewarp toggle switch alternates between a conventional hi-fi sound and a red-eyed stoner rock tone.
Additional controls include Toneblast, which bypasses the tone control for increased mids and volume. Should things become too quiet, there’s also a feedback stomper that can be engaged to trigger an integrated feedback loop. Finally, the Eau Claire’s trim control is perfect for cleaning up muddiness, especially that characteristic of hotter pickups.
