Fjord Fuzz are a small boutique pedal brand based in Bergen, Norway. In their own words, their pedals are "built by real musicians for real musicians" and deliver awe inspiring tones courtesy of their unconventional circuits.
The Fjord Fuzz Odin is a simple, yet powerful two channel fuzz pedal based on one of the most popular "octave-up" fuzz circuits of all time. Featuring two channels with independent gain controls, the Odin is a versatile and truly unique sounding fuzz that is guaranteed to cut through in a mix. Named after the legendary one-eyed god from Norse mythology, the Odin elevates your tone to equally god-like status! Delivering mythical octave fuzz tones in a simple to use, pedalboard friendly format, the Odin has to be heard to be believed!
Here's what Fjord Fuzz say about the Odin:
ODIN takes one of the best octave-up fuzz circuit designs of all time, strips away all the fluff and over-engineering and leaves you with a simple, yet powerful device. Turn it on and you are greeted by a wonderful, saggy, yet open and carefully compressed fuzztone, not too dissimilar from the old smiley-faced fuzz boxes we’ve all tried to love. This one however is louder, more mids-forward, less compressed and just a joy to work with.
Click ODIN into octave mode with the secondary foot switch and you now have one of the best octave up fuzzes on the market roaring from your speakers. It’s really loud and it’s tuned to let your guitar jump out of any mix without getting pointy and harsh.
The two fuzzes are entirely discrete designs within the box, making switching between them a seamless experience, not usually something you’ll find with this type of circuit. Making the two channels independent also made it possible to choose components to specifically suit each side.
New for Autumn 2021 is the addition of individual gain controls for each channel so you can now remove the control plate if you ever wish to clean or polish it.
