Lately I've really caught onto this Dwarfcraft stuff and as a collector of odd pedals it seems every one i get my hands on is more awesome than the last. Basically you have an on and off switch, a volume knob, a texture control for voicing purposes, and a starve knob which reduces the power and makes crazy noises. There are also two switched. One which creates upper octave tones in the sound and another which is a kind of squeel switch for the starve knob. It also has a switch to turn the starve circuit on and off.

UTILIZATION

At first glance this pedal is somewhat intimidating just because you aren't sure what everything does exactly. But after some trial and error it becomes apparent that there aren't any rules to this thing at all. It's totally a beast by itself. I run mine with a Les Paul Custom through a few pedals and a Bogner Shiva most of the time. I haven't had any issues with it. Seems very solid.

SOUND QUALITY

I'm not sure how to describe this thing. It really likes to oscillate...a lot. In fact, it's hard to get a sustained and not choppy signal out of it sometimes. If you like out of control rhythmic patterns this is the pedal for you. I can see this thing being used for a lot of obscure indie type rock. It's very synced up and melodic with the overtones but at the same time it's super noisy and has a sub bass thing going on. It's actually pretty easy to use. You really just plug in and start turning knobs to get results.

OVERALL OPINION

These Dcraft pedals keep surprising me by doing way more than I expect. I really had no idea what this was when I got it and it has turned out to be a lot more than another noisemaker. I think the great thing about it is its ability to be noisy and out of control while staying musical and melodic so it still has a use. I recommend it to anyone who does electro indie or crazy sounding rock stuff. It's totally sick.
