Product Description

The Chupacabra is the latest hand-built stompbox from Nashville folklore enthusiasts Mythos!

Vintage Bite

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!

Lovingly Constructed

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:

The latest Mythos Pedals creation! Built around the CD4049UBE chip this simple gain pedal does everything from pushed tweed breakup to balls to the wall rockin' fuzz! Designed to replicate the tones of the first few ZZ-Top records. So no matter if you just got back from baby's or just trying to find your cheap sunglasses this pedal will give you a Texas size tone with any setup!


  • Tons of pushed boost
  • Simple Level & Gain controls
  • Gain goes from pushed, to overdrive, to fuzz!
  • Great pushing a clean or overdriven amp.
  • Quality through hole components
  • True Bypass switching

Note: All Mythos Pedals operate on standard 9 volt dc power adapters. Center negative only. Mythos Pedals do not have internal 9 volt battery clips.

Mr Sean McLaughlin27th Mar 2021

Great sounding pedal, goes from slightly pushed/broken tube amp sound to very scuzzy and stacks really well with other pedals. Mythos pedals are terrific - I pair the Chupacabra with my always-on Herculean to add some extra dirt through a Blues Jr amp and it sounds truly fantastic.

Nothing like anything else iv ever tried. It does the early zz top sound perfect which bridges the gap between od and fuzz. Stacks really nicely with a green rhino too!!! Pair it with a alnico 2 pickup and you are certainly in pearly gates territory. Also sounds fantastic with my cabronita Tele. This is the tone I’ve been searching for!!! And it looks so so cool. Get me some cheap sunglasses 🕶

Cooles Pedal, gute Verarbeitung, fuzzy Sound!

Mr Richard Pyne7th Sep 2018

If you're looking for something that gives your amp a "fuzz like" quality while maintaining dynamics (palm muting a breeze on this if you set it right). This is killer. Yes it does the Billy Gibbons thing and thats not bad at all. Anyone who's heard "rythmeen" knows the guy can get some serious hair in his tone. But does much more as well. If you're looking for say that "dynamic fuzz edged tone" QOTSA have on tracks like "tangled up in plaid" it'll TOTALLy do that.
