Overview

The Hoof is loosely based on the classic green Russian muff-style fuzz circuit, and features a hybrid Germanium / Silicon design that pairs maximum tone with a temperature stability that proved to be a big problem with the finicky and expensive vintage units. Earthquaker hand-matches NOS Germanium transistors to exacting specifications for pedal-to-pedal consistency, taking the guesswork out of your fuzz purchase, and guaranteeing that your Hoof delivers its signature smooth, natural, and harmonically rich sustain.

The Hoof has a wide gain range, providing everything from dirty and organic amp-like overdrive to monstrous fuzz madness. Paired with the “Shift” control, this broad range allows you total tonal access, as the “Shift” knob works with the “Tone” control to alter the overall frequency response of the Hoof.

Use the “Shift” to boost the highs for a glassy, cutting top-end; use it to cut out some low- mid mud; use it to add some thick stoner rock sludge; use it on bass; use it to combat the muff-style fuzz’s notorious “mid scoop;” use it however you’d like, just use it! The Hoof’s distinctive, fuzzy character is tight and controlled without sacrificing any “guts,” so to speak, so even the gnarliest fuzz tones will sit well in the mix.

Features

  • Hybrid germanium / silicon circuitry
  • Hand tested NOS germanium transistors
  • “Shift” knob selects center frequency of the “Tone” control
  • True-bypass
  • Silent soft-touch switching*
  • All-analog dry signal path
  • Built one-at-a-time
  • Lifetime guarantee

Comments about Earthquaker Devices Hoof V2 Pedal:

If you're shopping for a fuzz pedal, this is likely to already be on your short list. I found Hoof a fair bit tighter and more articulate than anything in either the EHX fuzz line-up or in the fuzz face family, so it was an easy call for me. I'm sure that there are more good choices out there for those who cast their net wider and everyone's preferences in fuzz sounds will surely differ. That said, I thought Hoof was the best of the usual suspects...and not by a little.

As advertised, the germanium chip produces a very sweet fuzz sound when the guitar's tone control is rolled back.

One caveat: This thing gets very hairy, very quickly. Some of those extreme Black Keys sounds are already popping up in my rig at twelve o'clock. A light hand on the fuzz dial is recommended.
