This week we check out the Dunlop Daredevil Fuzz Wah, an all-new collaboration between the Cry Baby Wah makers and Daredevil Pedals. Then we check out the limited edition Patty Parlor Slamurai in Root Beer overdrive pedal and the Steel Panther 1987.
Daredevil Fuzz Wah
Essentially, the Dunlop Daredevil Fuzz Wah is a modded Cry Baby Wah with a custom fuzz circuit. Dunlop worked with Daredevil Pedals’s Johnny Water and together they created this new wah/fuzz pedal.
The wah has a single heavy-duty baseball bat switch to toggle the fuzz effect on and off. Removing the bottom plate of the pedal reveals two more controls: one to set the pedal’s output when the fuzz is engaged and another to dial in the level of fuzz.
Apart from that it is essentially a well-designed classic wah, now with the added fun of fuzz!
RRP – USD 229.99
Patty Parlor Slamurai
The Patty Parlor Slamurai in Root Beer is an Inspired Collaboration with Parlor Beverages. This amp-like overdrive is another collaboration, though this time with a non-alcoholic beverage brand.
This special edition run of the Slamurai overdrive pedal has a 3-band EQ section designed to specifically work with the guitar. The demo video of the standard coloured version below gives a good indication of what to expect.
RRP – USD 223
Steel Panther 1987
Finally, there is the new Steel Panther 1987 pedal. And yes, this time a Steel Panther branded effect doesn’t come with a daft name.
The ’80s in a box?
Essentially, it combines delay and distortion. With delay Level, Feedback and Delay controls on the top, and distortion Level, Tone and Gain knobs on the bottom row. Each side also has a dedicated footswitch to engage the effect.
It sounds just like a late ’80s guitar tone and is perfect for anyone into that era of music and guitar tones.
RRP – USD 198.70 plus shipping/taxes
