Fuzzhugger Algal Bloom & Blend

Maker: Fuzzhugger

Model: Algal Bloom & Blend

Condition: New



The Algal Bloom plus a Clean Volume knob! Blend
in cleans or whatever's in front of it. Great for bass,
blending fuzzes, or for adding even more mass,
definition, and cleanness to your tone.


If you thought the Algal Bloom was versatile, V2 will shock you. If you thought it wasn't extreme enough, toggle into to a world of crunch and crust. Too bright? Re-voice with the flip of a toggle.

New Choke/Strangle toggle. This activates a new mode, which I'd call HAB mode, for Harmful Algal Bloom, if that wouldn't create confusion. A complete revision on the concept Choke Toggle, it boosts and strangles at the same time. More effective and more extreme than the original choke, letting you dial in whiplash, crunch, crud, crust, dying, and dead.

New 3-way Voice toggle
This selects between:
1) The unfiltered Algal Bloom you know.
2) Slightly smoothed highs, removing a bit of clipping and fizz activity from the highs.
3) Smoothed and dampened.

The Algal Bloom is a harmonically rich, wide-range fuzz! From mellow to gritty overdrives, to "just  right" thickness, to mind-altering harmonic fuzz tones! An open tone with a full body...fantastic  definition and note-separation. Unique interactive controls allow you to alter the response and  texture of the fuzz. Surging fuzz textures, all the way up to a throaty roar!  

The pedal has a unique sound and circuit, but also expands on some classic tones that fuzz enthusiasts will love.  Excellent note separation and definition even on high gain settings. The controls interact with each other, allowing  for more subtle adjustments in texture and response. There's a lot of ground to cover in this pedal!  


The Controls! •

Gain: Gain adjustment and clean-up! As you back it off, it cleans up your fuzz, also adding a hint of  sputter and fizzle. Hard right is full-on! •

Bloom (Fuzz): Expands and pushes your fuzz tone, adding gain, sustain, and definition. Hard right is  maxed out...a unique, throaty, brash-yet-full tone! 12 o'clock is its "home setting," for thick fuzz tone! •

Starve (Texture): Limits the amount of power that reaches the circuit, creating some beautifully sick  fuzz textures that mimic a dying battery (slight scratch as circuit rebiases). •

Level: Your master volume control!  •

Hand-wired in the US. • Professionally printed circuit board. • LED (gem button style). • True-bypass switching. • 9v negative tip adapter power. (No batteries.) • Rugged aluminum enclosure. (4.7" x 3.7") • Lifetime warranty!
