What a day. It's hard to argue with a valve fuzzbox called 'The Womanizer", which costs $449, is loaded with weird controls and lights, has a switch with a radiation sign next to it, and a press release which says "The Womanizer's overdrive section cries out with all the emotive tonal character that any journeyman could desire".
Hard, that us, unless there's something new from Metasonix, who've got a nice line in reverse tech-psychology. They've just released a 'Special Unnaceptable Edition' of their gonzo valve superfuzzbox 'Agonizer', which costs $499. It's loaded with weird controls and lights, has a knob marked "strangle" and a press release which says "We've changed some of the circuit components to add just that little extra smidge of massive, atonal distortion effecto thingy. It's now fully OPTIMIZED for bad tone and crappy sound." (via Gizmodo)
