The Chupacabra is the latest hand-built stompbox from Nashville folklore enthusiasts Mythos!
The Chupacabra was designed in the sonic image of early ZZ-Top records. This means it ranges from a vibrant crispy clipped sound to an all-out sizzle with fuzzy overtones! Two simple controls (level & gain) provide you with a surprisingly versatile set of tonal sweet spots. No nonsense, just classy tone!
It started with the CD4049UBE chip from Texas Instruments; this unbuffered component is famed for a wonderfully transparent quality, as well as giving a fuzz-like quality to anything that contains it! You'll be amazed at how responsive this unit is - pair it up with some medium-output humbuckers and a crystal-clean tube amp and let it sing!
Mythos pedals are hand-built by mastermind Zach Broyles & his wife in Nashville, TN.As with the rest of the Mythos range, the Chupacabra has a simple die-cast enclosure and an understated but eye-catching design. It really does look as great as it sounds!
Here's what Mythos have to say about the Chupacabra:
