Destructive bliss
Stu Mollusc, 11.04.2019
Used for noise music so cant vouch for is use on guitar. Works great for destroying samples though. I use it in parallel with another effects loop which gives great dynamics and variety. Can be tricky to dial in the settings where you want but once you do its a unique and impressive sound. Love using the sliders, very tactile and responsive.

Très bonne fuzz mais également ultra typée et pas très polyvalente
Zedrx92, 04.06.2020
Les options proposées sont sympas et permettent de réellement construire un son parfaitement original et bien destroy.

Seulement, à la longue ça peut devenir fatiguant car même sur les réglages les plus bas, la fuzz est déjà très présente et sonne brillante/agressive.

Il manque de la progressivité pour pouvoir varier les plaisirs et pourquoi pas obtenir des sons plus doux, plus chauds... amateurs de sons crémeux, passez votre chemin !

La construction est soignée, à l'exception de l'ampoule rouge de la diode dont le cerclage en plastique chromé fait vraiment cheap... étonnant.

Je l'ai finalement revendue pour aller vers des fuzz plus grasses et plus classiques type Big Muff.

Je la regrette parfois un peu car les sons générés sont très bons, mais le registre sonore est réellement très typé et donc d'un usage qui se révèle limité.

einzigartig
Death by Cthulhu, 29.10.2020
Das Death by Audio absolut Destruktion Fuzz Pedal ist wirklich ein krasses Teil.
Es ist nicht nur ein Fuzz mit einem speziellen rotzig, kratzig heftigem Sound. Man kann diesen auch noch durch verschieben des Overload Reglers zerstören. Nur ganz leicht, es ergibt sich ein anderer angeknabberter Fuzzsound bis total, das Signal gerät außer Kontrolle, kommt teilweise mit Verzögerung aus dem Speaker, je mehr man die beiden Schieber aneinander vorbei bewegt umso mehr Verzerrung und Zerstörung bekommt man...einfach entzückend ! :) Ein seltener ungewöhnlicher Effekt der richtig Spaß macht wenn man auf sowas steht. Man muss schon hart gesotten sein um das zu "ertragen" ;)
Was ich auch besonders schön finde ist das man bei entsprechenden Einstellung an Amp und Pedal auch relativ cleane Töne auf den hohen Saiten bekommt währen gleichzeitig oben bei entsprechendem Anschlag brachialer Fuzz entsteht.
Der Fuzz allein ist schon eine Anschaffung wert. Die Zerstörung dazu ist das Sahnehäubchen oder besser die Abrissbirne !
Der Charakter des Fuzz unterscheidet sich sehr von dem des FuzzWar. Manche sagen das AD ist besser. Ich finde es anders gut.
Die Verarbeitung ist wie gewohnt bei DbA sehr gut. Die optische Gestaltung gefällt mir persönlich sehr gut. Auch die Bedienung mit den Schiebereglern ist toll, mal was anderes.
Klare Kaufempfehlung von mir.

Du Death by Audio, du vrai, du bon !
The Pepejo , 20.07.2018
Je suis un grand fan de la marque new yorkaise , et cette pédale est fidèle à la réputation de la bande d'Oliver Ackermann. Elle est capable d'être sage de procurer de la distorsion classique , avec ce réglage elle peut être utilisée pour booster un autre overdrive. En la poussant elle délivre un beau fuzz , bien present , épais et capable de percer le mix, présent dans les aigus mais pas scicaillante. En la poussant encore plus c'est (comme son nom l'indique ) la destruction absolue du son , mais toujours de manière très créatrice et inspirante ! Les DBA ne sont pas les pédales de M.Toulemonde. Elle plaisent complètement ou rebutent totalement. Si vous aimez les univers darks, et si vous cherchez à avoir votre son bien à vous ...alors cette pédale est pour vous ! Moi j'ai choisi mon camp. ;-)
