Evil Twin

See More GoochFX Stompboxes

Everybody used to play through a Fender Twin…they’re great amps, awesome clean tone, and they take fuzz pedals really well, but it’s really hard to push them into natural overdrive.  Well, we decided to come up with a stompbox that emulated the amp circuitry but with a superheated signal that pushed the second gain stage into a really sizzling crunch.  And voila, the Evil Twin was born.  Natural and very dynamic (i.e., not a compressed sound) but very ballsy and dynamic.   We’ve only made one of these, but it’s been great fun to play.  I’ve used it recently at some live blues club venues, running it into a Fender Blues Jr.  (which is also tough to push into heavy overdrive) and it sounds fantastic, so we may make more of these…
