Listen to “Episode 4: "The Devil's Tonage" – Electro-Faustus Effects with Founder Eric Kessel” on Spreaker.

In this episode we explore the fuzzes and crazy noise and modulation effects from Electro-Faustus Noise Devices. If Jimi Hendrix were to do a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner to capture today’s sense of cultural and political upheaval, these would very likely be his pedals of choice. We take a look at the Electro-Faustus Guitar Disruptor, the Guitardämmerung, and the Blackfly pedals. We also talk to founder Eric Kessel about the inspirations behind these pedals (Hendrix being one) and the growing role of noise devices in both EDM and in guitar-based music, where the players are looking for more than just traditional tone choices.
