Billed as a “dickstortion”, the My Big Fatt Rawk is a limited edition distortion pedal with a very high-gain voicing best suited to hard rock. It follows on from the recent Nergal signature LCFR overdrive/boost pedal and is, again, a heavy-sounding stompbox.
The circuit is solid-state and uses MOSFET technology. There’s a built-in treble booster in there as well.
Launched on 1 April, everyone initially thought this pink stompbox was a joke. Turns out, it’s not. So if you want a penis-themed distortion pedal in your rig, you’ll have to act fast as they are only available till 31 April, according to the KHDK site. Has anyone told them April only has 30 days?
The controls are labelled Hardiness (Gain), Length (Volume), Girth (Pre-distortion EQ) and Shrinkage (Low pass filter). It has not one, but two LED status lights, and a soft touch footswitch. All the connections are on the top and it is, of course, true-bypass.
When Penises Collide
KHDK has done a video with Fall Out Boy guitarist Joe Trohman and comedian Brian Posehn, the originators of this pedal – you can watch it here. Pre-orders end April 31st(?) and the pedals will start shipping in 8-12 weeks. So if you need one of these to go with your Pussy Melter or Butthole Burner, now’s the time to place your order.
