HOOK ECHO FUZZ/DELAY
Busy preparing the Full Of Hell pedal release, but these will be available again soon, thanks!
More To Come.....
The Hook Echo is not a fuzz circuit into a delay circuit, nor is it a delay circuit into a fuzz circuit. Here, fuzz and delay are intertwined as a single ecosystem, allowing for a wide array of unique sounds and textures, from functional to mind-bending.
Output Level - Be warned, the Hook Echo has an extreme amount of volume on tap.
Sets the Delay Time - Longer delays push the limits of the PT2399 delay chip length into noisier territory. Delay times will get longer as the Starve knob is turned up as well.
The initial gain stage of the circuit, this is akin to a Fuzz or Drive knob. The amount of Input Gain is interactive with the Diffuse knob, lower Diffuse settings give more direct fuzz tones.
Sets the balance of delay repeats and fuzz, though not quite in the way of a conventional “mix” knob. All the way down is more Fuzz and less Delay. As Diffuse is turned up the delay repeats become more audible and the Fuzz shifts it's emphasis. As Diffuse moves even higher you can dial in higher Delay Gain settings and achieve some borderline looping and other extremes. Diffuse is interactive with both the Input Gain and Delay Gain.
A traditional fuzz Tone control that shifts brighter as it is turned up. Extreme Contour settings will greatly change the feel of the sweep of the Tone knob. Experimentation is encouraged.
Delay repeats. Fine tuning between Feedback and Delay Gain will determine delay repeats and the vibe of the repeats.
Sets the dirtiness of the delay. All the way down is the safest and suggested starting point, depending where other settings are. Delay Gain is very interactive with the Diffuse knob. When Diffuse is low, the Delay Gain will oscillate very quickly at low settings. As the Diffuse is set higher, you can find endless delays and textures by balancing the Delay Gain to taste.
Reduces power to the PT2399 delay chip. All the way down is full power and normal operation. Approaching noon gives subtle variations in tone and texture. Around noon things get glitchier and squelchier. Around 3 o’clock to all the way up, you will find lofi vibes and washy tones. At higher settings the output volume will need to be turned up as the circuit has a lower output at this lower voltage.
Adjusts the shape and midrange emphasis of the Tone Stack and works in conjunction with the Tone knob. Pro Tip - Turning the Contour all the way up results in a high cut which eliminates fizzier sounds / hiss and can provide lofi textures and tones with glitchier / more washed out settings.
All the way down is the suggested starting point or "Normal" setting. Up to noon Distress will give shades of pitch bend on the repeats. Above noon, these bends can get chaotic, or glitchy, or just be complete noise. Distress results are interactive with the Input Gain, Delay Gain, Delay Time, Diffuse, and Starve settings.

All international orders are not my responsibility once they are accepted by the US Postal Service. If there are issues I will attempt to resolve them, but I cannot be held accountable for issues with foreign services, customs, duties, or deliveries that are beyond my control. That said there have been very few issues, so I am happy to offer this option, please just be aware and responsible in tracking and collecting your shipments, etc. Thank you for understanding.
