  • PureSalem Guitars and 323 Effects have teamed up on a new pedal range. Check out the upcoming Honey Bunny and Pink Beard!

    PureSalem Guitars

    PureSalem Guitars has teamed up with Brian Nelson of 323 Effects to create a limited line of FUZZ pedals called SALEMFUZZ. These are limited to runs of 25 pedals each and are of the highest quality order. The price is $225.00 each and will be available through the PureSalem Guitars Website only. The HONEY BUNNY & PINK BEARD are just the first two in the series .... you can contact me for pre-orders. These pedals are handmade and built like a tank !!!SalemFuzz HoneyBunnyThis is "THE RHYTHM" Fuzz !!!! Straight-forward fuzz tones! With its tight but meaty low end and scooped mids you’re nailing 90’s rock rhythm right out of the box. And the HoneyBunny has more than enough gain on tap to satisfy even the stingiest of gain hogs. Don’t want to get lost in the mix? Crank up the tone knob and let your notes shine. Even with the fuzz turned to 11, string definition is still in tact. Whether you’re rocking single coils or humbuckers, this pedal is a perfect match!High quality components are used throughout. Relay based bypass makes for silent and smooth true-bypass switching. No annoying POPS that are common with high gain effects. It’s housed in a semi-translucent sparkly green aluminum enclosure and topped with white screen printed graphics and large white fluted knobs. Standard 9V DC negative ground power adapter.SalemFuzz PinkBeardModern, high-gain transistor fuzz. And this thing is LOUD!!! It can handle anything from smooth distortion to over-the-top nasty fuzz. The three-position toggle switch takes the pedal from normal fuzz tones in the right position to a gated, splatty feel with fizzy decay in the left position, all while remaining musical and useful. The middle position takes you into synthy video game territory and lets the notes “bloom” slightly during the sustain. And for a more fizzy note decay, roll back on your guitar’s volume knob! Use the starve control to affect the voltage supplied to the circuit – depending on the toggle setting this can either smooth out the higher gain settings or enhance the sputters and splats. Playing higher up the neck can even cause an octave up effect! The starve, fuzz, and toggle are all very interactive, making for tons of tonal possibilities.High quality components are used throughout. Relay based bypass makes for silent and smooth true-bypass switching. No annoying POPS that are common with high gain effects. All this is wrapped up in a pink powder-coated aluminum enclosure with screen-printed graphics and large, high quality, white fluted knobs. Standard 9V DC negative ground power adapter.
