OVERVIEW

A redesigned, bass-heavy version of the classic Hoof fuzz.

The Cloven Hoof is an extension of the popular Hoof fuzz, only more cloven. Earthquaker kept the clarity of the Hoof along with the wide range of dirt tones and redesigned everything around it. The Cloven Hoof delivers a grittier, more bass heavy tone with more crunch that can not be achieved with the standard Hoof.

They did away with the germanium transistors and replaced them with 4 specially selected silicon transistors for higher gains, cleaner cleans and improved temperature stability. The fuzz control has four times the range of the regular Hoof, it will go from completely clean to an all out fuzz fury with more grind at the top end of the dial. The tone control has been refined to allow a more even sweep with enough mids to handle all the additional low end. The shift control still boosts or cuts the mids and there is still a TON of output on tap. The Cloven Hoof is the perfect solution for those of you who always wished the Hoof had more. Each Cloven Hoof is made by hand in the majestic mountain top village of Akron, Ohio.

FEATURES
  • Fuzz: Clockwise for heavy, counterclockwise for light
  • Tone: Bass to the left, Treble to the right
  • Level: Use this control to make the Cloven Hoof louder or quieter

    Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Cloven Hoof Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

    This fuzz can do almost anything you need it to do. I like to keep up it kind of mellow for a lot of tunes, as it gives a nice, woolly edge to my rhythm tone. The ability to dial in you low end and midrange is a huge plus, especially for single coils. The cranked fuzz is glorious, harmonically complex, and just downright gnarly. EQD makes really reliable, sturdy pedals, and I plan on buying a few more. Quality is top notch.

      Comments about EarthQuaker Devices Cloven Hoof Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Overall, the Cloven Hoof is a solid fuzz pedal. It's brighter and crunchier than the original Hoof Fuzz, from what I could tell. If you're looking for something cakey but not quite as dark or wooly as your typical Big Muf sound, then the Cloven Hoof might work for you. The pedal is versatile, you can dial in a lot of tones, but to me it seems like it excels at being a somewhat brighter fuzz, without going into overdrive crunch territory. I will say the fuzz of this pedal doesn't quite wash your tone as much as a Big Muf, which is what I need for the style of music I play, which is shoegaze. The Cloven Hoof still gets plenty dirty, but for my purposes, I need it to be kind of ridiculous.
