The Old Blood Noise Endeavours Alpha Haunt is a fuzz pedal that can be as simple of as experimental and detailed as you need it to be. Either way, its a fat sounding, rich fuzz that cuts like a buzzsaw. The Alpha Haunt initially features some fairly standard fuzz pedal controls, with a controls for Master Volume, Fuzz Volume and Fuzz Gain. The Alpha Haunt also allows you to sweep the range of the Fuzz tone, moving from softer lower gain fuzz sounds to harsher higher gain fuzz sounds.
The Alpha Haunt really comes in to its own with the level of tone shaping possibilities it has compared to most other fuzz pedals. The 'Gate' control works in tandem with the fuzz gain, with the ability to cut pretty much all the sustain and achieve tighter and fatter / fuzzier tones. The 'Bias' control has the effect of limiting the power to the circuit, leaving you with a spluttering, messy fuzz tone.
The Old Blood Noise Endeavours Alpha Haunt also features a 3 band EQ for precisely dialling in your frequencies, while the 'Enhance' control can add extra clarity to your tone. The 'LPF' control acts as an overall tone control. Move anti clockwise for a warmer output, while the mini toggle switch allows you to change the way the tone control behaves, as well as bypassing it all together for a much more powerful fuzz tone.
