KMA Audio Machines Dead Stagg, Boutique, Handmade Fuzz | Distortion Pedal, with Active 3-band EQ

The Dead Stag, from KMA Audio Machines, is what can ultimately happen when a boutique, custom effects maker decides to modify a classic fuzz circuit, add extra bells and whistles, and house it in a stunning, rugged, powder-coated finish. The end result is a mind-blowing and versatile Fuzz/Distortion pedal that's not only suitable for both guitar and bass, but will completely change your outlook on fuzz effects in general.

Handmade Boutique Construction, with 3-Band Active EQ

The famous Russian Muff circuitry within the Dead Stag has had it's simple Tone Control replaced with an awesome, active 3-band EQ with parametric mids. This means that not only can you still achieve that classic 70's scooped-mid Fuzz tone that the Muffs are famous for, but you now have the added option of including 90s style mid & bass boosts in the mix.

Bags of Fun New Features

Featuring not only the aforementioned 3-band EQ, but also a Gain Range switch that allows you to move between High and Low, a Shape switch that gives you the option of a Soft, Round or Aggressive tone, and an internal Q:Bandwidth control that lets you widen or narrow the bandwitch of the EQ's mids, the Dead Stagg is arguably one of the most versatile fuzz pedals on the market.

Gain & Mid-Boost Switches

In addition to the control knobs you have two wonderful toggle switches. These allow you to choose between High/Low Gain levels, with the other switch working as a high-mid boost circuit that allows you to choose between a smooth or sharp gradient. All of these controls working together give you what is arguably one the most versatile single-circuit fuzz pedals on the market, giving you the option of a pure, smooth fuzz tone, right through to sputtering Gremanium type fuzz effects and everything inbetwee - not only that but Tone Purists rejoice: it's also True Bypass!

Handmade Boutique Construction

Each and every KMA Audio Machines pedal is designed, assembled, silkscreened, tested, and numbered, by hand in a small Berlin workshop. Despite the premium-grade components and boutique construction though, pedals like the Dead Stag remain an affordable option for most working musicians and tone enthusiasts alike.
