All hail, the king of fuzz has arrived.
Looking for punishing fuzz tone? You've come to the right place. The Devi Ever Soda Meiser fuzz pedal goes from smooth fuzz, to loud distortion, to all-out buzz-clippers nastiness.
At lower intensities, this Devi Ever distortion pedal has a great Big Muff sound but with a lot more character. At higher intensities, it becomes a disharmonic fuzz bliss that reminds many of the Ampeg Scrambler. People have compared the Soda Meiser's sound to that of the Smashing Pumpkins and Jeff Buckley. The distortion pedal works well with bass, guitar, vocals, synths, drums, and anything else you can run through it.
The Volume knob controls the outbound gain of the fuzz circuit, and there is a lot of gain on tap. Use it loud to push an amp into overdrive or boost lead parts. Be careful though, it can get very loud on a clean amp. The Devi Ever distortion pedal's Intensity knob controls the amount of forward signal going into the fuzz circuit. This control acts similarly to the sustain, or drive knob, on other dirt boxes, but with the most extreme setting sending the fuzz texture into a more scrambled, chaotic disarray.

After reading lots of reviews and watching lots of demos (including a great one featuring Nels Cline of Wilco) I finally pulled the trigger on the Soda Meiser. I A/B tested it against my Big Muff and quickly found that I was dealing with a completely different kind of monster. The Soda Meiser is a nasty, gnarly fuzz pedal. For example, when I strum a G chord with the Intensity (fuzz) knob on 12:00, it sounds a whole lot like the beautiful, cacophonous sound that Neil Young produced for his album "Ragged Glory"--a smoldering, bubbling, uncontrolled sounding fuzz. Even with the Intensity knob at it's lowest setting, the pedal still produces a thick, Big Muff-ish tone. With the knob at full tilt, the characteristics of the fuzz begin to change and become even more unruly--atonal, insane, and fun! And that is what's most impressive about the Soda Meiser: the characteristics of the tone change from the zero fuzz setting and all the way to the maximum setting. I love my Big Muff, but this pedal makes it seem a little stale and boring!
This pedal is honestly amazing. The version I own is a hand painted one with the chaos switch (which is available on the Rocket too). I put the features rating at 4.0, since the chaos switch is now taken off the standard Soda Meiser. I bought a Big Muff Pi with Tone Wicker after this, and the Soda Meiser actually sounds amazingly close to the sound of a Big Muff. It is a gated fuzz, which means that when you stop playing, it's dead quiet. Doesn't affect sustain at all though, it actually is quite good if you plan on using it for leads. When you roll your guitar's volume way down, since it is a gated fuzz you get all sorts of dying battery sputter-out tones. When you roll it down just a bit though, it makes the fuzz warmer and more "smooth". I say it like that because this is definitely not a smooth fuzz, it is a very aggressive pedal. There's no tone control, so it is a full-on assault. If you want a Soda Meiser with a tone control, look into Devi's War Horse pedal. At lower intensities it is very full and Muff-like, but when you really crank the intensity knob it starts to get octave fuzz qualities and gets really scrambly. All in all it is a very versatile pedal that does everything from gated Muff tones to searing Ampeg Scrambler tones. Great build quality too.
