This article is not a review of the elusive and mysterious Ayahuasca pedal from Abracadabra Audio. It’s more of a backstory of how this pedal came to be.


What Is Ayahuasca?

Ayahuasca is a fuzz pedal. And it’s a tremolo pedal. You can use the fuzz independently or together with the tremolo. If you cut down the pedal’s Input knob a bit, you can sort of clean up the sound to use the tremolo semi-independently as well, but it’s still quite lo-fi sounding and dirty. The pedal can also produce ring-mod-like oscillation at high Rate speeds and vibe-like sounds when the tremolo is set to Harmonic mode.

Ayahuasca is an acquired taste which may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Here’s a small dose of Ayahuasca to whet your palate courtesy of Knobs:



And here’s a longer clip that shows a few of the unique sounds this pedal can produce:



Ayahuasca’s tremolo isn’t super clean like the Chase Bliss Audio Gravitas. Speaking of Gravitas, maybe that’s where we should begin Ayahuasca’s origin story…

Mr. Joel Korte at Chase Bliss Audio once made me a special Gravitas pedal that had a choppier square wave and very fast Rate speeds. The talented Mr. Jack Nelson over at Dropping Acid Pedal Etching contributed a beautiful acid-etched enclosure to make the pedal extra special.


The original “Ayahuasca” modded Gravitas


This one-off Gravitas variant (similar to other choppy modded versions specially made for some Chase Bliss Audio customers but with faster Rate speeds) was essentially a blueprint for the tremolo sound heard in the Ayahuasca pedal made for Abracadabra Audio.


Ayahuasca’s Tremolo

The key difference of the tremolo in Ayahuasca vs Gravitas is that the Ayahuasca’s circuit uses 2 NOS vactrols in tandem for an ultra choppy analog tremolo sound when the waveform is set to Square. The idea was to make the trem as choppy as possible while retaining a 100% analog signal path, a hallmark of Chase Bliss Audio pedal designs.

The vactrol based Ayahuasca can produce a very aggressive square wave tremolo that excels at chopping up a distorted guitar signal. That inspiration led to a fuzz circuit being added to the pedal. After all, while the Gravitas is known for its pristine clean sound and subtle vintage warmth, Ayahuasca is inspired by the jungle, an often dangerous and harsh environment that warrants an equally precarious sound.


Ayahuasca’s Fuzz

Here’s a brief backstory on Ayahuasca’s fuzz circuit that was leaked on Reddit:

“The short version of the long story of its fuzz circuit origins goes something like this: We’re all familiar with the late 60’s fuzzes, particularly the Fuzz Face. A guy named Cláudio César Dias Baptista made a Fuzz Face inspired pedal for his brother Sergio of the Brazilian band Os Mutantes. It was called the Regulus VIII aka the “Mutantes Fuzz” and became a signature part of the band’s sound. Another builder re-interpreted that circuit and added a Big Muff Pi style tone stack that was heavily modified. Then a certain modern builder re-interpreted that circuit, further modifying it and pushing it to its usable limits and beyond to create what can be found in Ayahuasca. A main focus was to create a very wide range of usability from a 3-knob fuzz. The more I play it, the more I feel we succeeded in doing so.”

So who was the builder that re-interpreted the Regulus VIII fuzz?

It was the late Mr. Chris Bradford of El Músico Loco. The Wee Beaver Fuzz was his interpretation, and it’s one of my all-time favorite fuzz pedals. While that pedal made it onto my pedalboard on a few occasions, I often felt it was a bit limiting in that the fuzz was always full-on with the only option to cut the input gain being to reduce your guitar’s onboard volume control. This works pretty well if you like controlling your fuzz from your guitar, but I generally like being able to establish my gain level from the pedal first and adjust further from the guitar as desired. Also, when stacking a fuzz pedal with other overdrive and distortion pedals, it helps to have full control over the amount of saturation coming from the fuzz in the chain. Sadly, I was never able to discuss possible improvements with Chris as he passed away unexpectedly.

Mr. Joel Korte is the modern builder who re-interpreted the circuit from a pedal that Chris personally gave to me. Ayahuasca’s fuzz isn’t really a clone as Joel ended up putting his own unique spin on the whole thing. The input gain could also now be adjusted from its own knob for a wider range of fuzz saturation. Joel & I listened to a few circuit variations and decided on an iteration we were both happy with.

The former pedal’s unique tone control was also further modified. The tone-stack in Ayahuasca is quite possibly the most special thing about the pedal’s fuzz circuit, and we opted to label the tone knob “Color” in reference to the wide palette of textures available from this single knob.


The Art of Ayahuasca

So we had an insane Gravitas inspired tremolo that could get crazy fast and extremely choppy, and we had one of the best fuzz pedal sounds I’ve ever heard. We just needed the all-important art component to bring Ayahuasca to life. One person was up to the task: Hannah M. Haugberg.

Hannah is one of the most widely known pedal-painting artists. She’s painted somewhere in the neighborhood of 3000 pedals during her time working with ZVex Effects. That’s not to mention commissions for other builders.

Hannah painted the first 3 batches of Ayahuasca pedals. She and other artists may paint more to come.


Ayahuasca Batch History

Here’s a brief batch history of the Ayahuasca pedals released so far.


Ayahuasca “Jungle” (serials #1-10)
Painted by: Hannah M. Haugberg

This was the first hand painted limited batch with art inspired by the Amazon jungle.


Ayahuasca “Shipibo” (serials #11-20)
Painted by: Hannah M. Haugberg

This was the second hand painted limited batch with a design inspired by the visionary art of Shipibo women.


Ayahuasca “Cielo” (serials #21-30)
Painted by: Hannah M. Haugberg

This was the third hand painted limited batch with art inspired by the jungle and the cielo ayahuasca vine also known as “sky ayahuasca”.


Ayahuasca “Ceremony” (serials #31-40)
Painted by: Andy Dolan


This was the 4th hand painted limited batch with original art by Aindriais Dolan that was inspired by his own connection with Ayahuasca.


Ayahuasca “Acid Etched” (serials #41-50)
Etched by: Dropping Acid Pedal Etching


The 5th batch was the first to deviate from hand painting in favor of a straight-forward acid-etched design by Dropping Acid Pedal Etching. While the hand-painted versions have abbreviated dip-switch labels, the etch versions have full text dip-switch labeling.


Ayahuasca “Spirit Molecule” (serials #51-60)
Art by: Carl Sandusky, Etched by: Dropping Acid Pedal Etching


This beautiful acid-etched batch was conceived by Mr. Carl Sandusky and etched by Dropping Acid Pedal Etching. The design features an original “Ayahuasca” logo, a new font for surface parameter labels, and a dimethyltryptamine molecule between the foot-switches. Also, Carl’s idea for a two-toned etch was beautifully executed by DAPE.


Ayahuasca Prototypes & Other Pedals

Some other Ayahuasca pedals exist. Here are a few of the noteworthy pedals.


Ayahuasca “Jungle” Prototype

This pedal (also seen at the top of this page) was the 1st Ayahuasca enclosure painted by Hannah M. Haugberg. It has different labeling as final parameter names had yet to be decided upon. Interestingly, this pedal was brought by SWIM to a medicine woman to form a conduit with the spirit of Ayahuasca and receive blessings for the project… whatever that means. SWIM says it went well. This pedal is currently in the possession of Mr. Joel Korte.


Ayahuasca “Jungle” #00000

This pedal was painted by Hannah M. Haugberg. It features the final parameter labeling and was made specially for Knobs. It was also photographed for product imagery seen on Abracadabra Audio.


Ayahuasca “Jungle”, “Shipibo”, & “Cielo” (Unnumbered)

One extra unnumbered pedal was commissioned with each of the first 3 batches. They were painted by Hannah M. Haugberg and were originally made for archival purposes. It was later decided to give these pedals away so that they might be played instead of sitting in boxes. A giveaway for these pedals was held at BestGuitarEffects.com in celebration of the site’s 4-year anniversary.

(This section may be updated with relevant information regarding future Ayahuasca batches.)


So that pretty much sums up the Ayahuasca story so far minus the weird synchronicity stuff that no one really wants to know. Speaking of weird stuff, what the heck is Abracadabra Audio? And what’s happening next over there?


The Future of Abracadabra Audio

Here’s some news and candid info. There might be some more limited batches of Ayahuasca appearing soon. The best way to stay informed is to get on Abracadabra Audio’s mailing list. There’s usually an email sign up box at the bottom of the site.

As for other new AA pedals, some things have been said between industry people and some ideas have been shared. I may continue being involved, but it’s not entirely up to me how AA progresses if it does continue to exist. If there’s something interesting you’d like to see from AA, reach out via the site’s contact page and share your idea(s).


Going Forth

Participating in the Ayahuasca project has been super amazing. I feel very lucky and fortunate to have had a part in helping manifest this unique pedal.

Thanks to Joel Korte & Chase Bliss Audio, Hannah M. Haugberg, Knobs, Andy Dolan, Jack Nelson, Carl Sandusky, Chris Bradford, Abracadabra Audio, anyone who likes this pedal as much as I do, the readers of Best Guitar Effects, and everyone who’s doing the Great Work and making awesome things happen.

    Speak Your Mind


  1. These pedals are so aesthetically and sonically beautiful and versatile, it should be a crime. I would LOVE to own one someday and put it on the front lines of the tone arsenal. Thank you for being so awesome!!

  2. Justin Barney says:

    I think that would round out some areas of my sound nicely!

  3. Tiemo Norman says:

    is this pedal compatible with ayahuasca? ;)

  4. These look amazing

  5. Saw that the giveway was over, darn…this is what happens when you’re in a hospital goofing around.

    Stay healthy kids, because this is one of those moments you don’t want to miss…a free Ayahuasca!

    Congrats to the three lucky winners and a big salute to Abracadabra Audio for such an opportunity!

  6. Absolutely beautiful. If they sound half as good as they look then winner!!

  7. Bryce Pulver says:

    Sick and creative pedals!

  8. These are so cool :-)

  9. Andy Carlson says:

    Very cool pedal from the clips. Definitely some inspiring textures.

  10. Gastation Chicken says:

    Methinks me found the holiest of holy grails with the pleasant heartbeat of ayahuasca pumping through my hammer, anvil as it penetrates in silent anesthetic the gatekeeper eardrum into my sentience. Thank you ayahuasca,…

  11. This pedal is insane. It’s so melodic and true to it’s soul, and really adds a new edge and flavor to the all around tone to any rig. Artwork is equally as impressive!

  12. Damn this one sounds intriquing! Would use it on out forthcoming album for sure. :)

  13. Cool designs

  14. Jared Johnson says:

    Been playing for a little while now, after a long period of time away from a guitar and beginning to gain interest in effects. I play for self enjoyment, and these sound right up my alley, and would be awesome to have one attached to my rig. Anything besides a clean sound, I’m starting to lose my mind like you all did engineering these pedals to produce such crazy sounds and tones. Keep up the good work. Look forward to Future reads, keep sending them.

  15. Wow!!……I would love to get my hands on one of these Ayahuasca pedals, where can I order one from?

  16. Sad to see at least two of these posted on reverb for nearly a thousand bucks. Would have liked to see these go to people who would actually appreciate and use them as opposed to simple flippers…

  17. Justin Miller says:

    Rad design

  18. Very cool! I want one

  19. Absolutely amazing!!! Thanks for the “demo” and information!!!

  20. Nice combo!

  21. Deke Roberts says:

    A thought enters my head.

    Given that I can get all the overdrive that I need from my Boogie, can this pedal actually do anything that its opposite number in the Moogerfooger range can’t?

  22. Peter Bregman says:

    Instant shoegaze tones with amazing art. Killer combo.

  23. Joseph Earl says:

    Two of my favorite fX’s combined! Awesome.

  24. lani david says:

  46. This is a lot of people wanting these pedals. Oof.

  47. Ori Partouche says:

    The artwork is mindblowing

  48. May Lindenberg` says:

    crazy sounding pedal will be a great edition to my board

  49. Simply amazing, and beautiful too. Dip switches!!! Over the top cool. Gotta have one.

  50. Bojan Hostic says:

    Analog all the way! :))

  51. What can I say? I REALLY want one of these!

  52. Not only do these effects SOUND good, but they also look friggin incredible! It would be such a welcome addition to my live rig annnnd my studio rig!

  53. Impressive hand painting on these.

  54. This pedal looks truly amazing.

  55. Gabriel Marin says:

    This is such a cool pedal! I want to use it in cooperation with my my ambient tones. I can see this fuzz/trwmelo trip being used to create intricate layers of sound and now find myself NEEDING this pedal on my board! Outstanding Job by all parties involved!

  56. I think this pedal will go down as an all-time classic!

  57. Isaac Hansen says:

    Can’t wait to try one of these!

  58. Amazing, wish I had them (wink)

  59. The artwork on the chassis is ridiculous! The sound is equally ridiculous! I’m in love!

  60. Oh man. Those pedals sound epic!!

  61. Montgomery Mitchell says:


  62. Montgomery Mitchell says:

    I really like the artwork on these pedals. I have a one-off Zvex Ringtone that Hannah painted and like that as well, but these are on another level. I particularly like the Mayan/Aztec styled one although jungle scenery is always cool, too.
    On another note, I have long been interested in real, actual ayahuasca and reading books like The Cosmic Serpent by Jeremy Narby and some of Terrence McKenna’s material has been fascinating and mind-blowing. I would love to try it myself someday but don’t see being able to travel to the Amazonian jungle anytime soon. Perhaps the closest I’ll ever get is this pedal. I’m sure it would be fascinating and mind-blowing in its own right.


  63. Must be the best name ever for a fuzz pedal

  64. I will challenge anyone to a hot dog eating contest for these.

  65. Sheit be dank

  66. Tomasz Litra says:

    Grooviest pedals I have ever seen, I can totally channel my inner Jimi Hendrix with these babies!

  73. Even Bekkedal says:

    Very interesting concept and backstory for this pedal. Sounds and looks amazing as well!

  74. Just got a Chase Bliss Brothers and it is definitely the best boost/OD/Fuzz I have owned and all in one as well!
    Would so love to add an Ayahuasca to my board!!!

  75. Adrian Realy says:

    I am desperate to try it with my Mopho SE synth

  95. Bobby Wheeler says:

    These pedals have a place in just about any genre!

  96. Philippe Bouchard says:

    This sounds as messed up as a weekend on Ayahuasca… And i love it ! Maybe i can find my spiritual guide with this pedal?

  97. Beautiful pedals with a great sound!

  98. Nice – versatile!

  99. Love the artwork on these, and the tones it creates sound incredible!

  100. Love how these sound!

  101. Marc-Antoine Lamoureux says:

    The artwork is a major plus the sounds are wicked and inspiring …. I’ll be looking to try one of these myself ASAP.

  106. Fuzz and Tremolo!!!!!

  107. +1 for expression pedal connection

  113. Bojan Hostic says:

    p.s. Chase Bliss Audio rocks :))

  114. Bojan Hostic says:

    Lovin’ these colors.. wild and alive as the sound itself.. perfectly suited for an analog freak as I am! :))

  115. Really cool pedal!!

  116. These look awesome!

  117. Abracadabra pedals are just amazing. The combination of fuzz and tremolo can give so much variety of tones. The Tap option is also a giant plus in those particular pedals. They sound truly amazing. And of course thay look astonishing :D

  118. Very nice pedals and super sweet paint jobs!

  119. The pedals are wicked! The prettiest tremolo I have ever seen

  120. Oh, so fuzzing amazing..

  121. What an awesome device! Would love to add one of these hand painted beauties to my pedal board!

  122. Never used a tremolo fuzz. I could base a whole EP around this sound…

  123. interesting sound ans look
    espeshially with this pink knobs:)

  124. These things are incredible! Can’t even imagine how many sounds you could get with a roll in the hay with one of these guys. Look forward to seeing more from these guys, especially because of the exquisite design!

  125. Dam,dat’s the fuzz i’ve looked for all these years,boi

  126. Pedals look awesome! I have not used them, but I would love to try them out!

  127. Don’t know why I hear the statement “Well, tremolo is such a specific effect, not many people need it” so often… WTF? As far as i’m concerned, tremolo is the most natural effect, you can use it anywhere stacking with anything. Fuzz can’t make it worse =)

  128. Хочу!

  129. Well, that’s sexy, even though the design is kinda strange.

  130. Luka Akimov says:

    This pedal looks and sounds amazing for God’s sake!!!

  131. I want it all!

  132. Incredible pedals!

  133. I really liked this design, sounds great and really convenient shape.

  139. Alex Lushnikov says:

    Truly wonderful pedal – a pure source of art

  140. Enda Russell says:

  142. Isaiah Farrell says:

    These pedals are insane!

  143. Bradley Ludwig says:

    Sounds great, cool designs, and one of the few fuzz pedals without a sexual innuendo.

  144. I have just the space for that on my board

  145. Robert Connan says:

    What a fuzzy miracle! Wonder what it sounds like on other sources!

  146. Norman Strong says:

    Great review and a great sounding pedal

  147. Ari Pentelovitch says:

    The name Ayahuasca is interesting. It’s actually the name of a vine that grows in the Amazon that has hallucinogenic properties when brewed into a drink. The drink is used as a ceremonial spiritual medicine among the native peoples of the Amazon basin.

    The more you know :)

  148. Pasquale Vaccaro says:

    You need some Ayahuasca in your life ;)

  149. Awesome pedals! Fuzz is all you need…

  153. Yannick Wandel says:

    Wow…it’s 5 in the morning and we just spend the last couple of hours with a nice pedal setup of a friend and with your creations it is always blissfull indeed! We didn’t even use a guitar anymore at the end, just letting those little wizzards do their magic ;)
    With a group of friends just spread out on the floor sinking deeper into thos spheres of sound it was a truely ceremonial atmosphere, so we can’t wait to add some amazonian plant life to our soundtherapies!

    Thx for the nice article and for sparking this creation! Also thanks to Chase Bliss and Abracadabra Audio for their awe inspiring Instruments :)

  154. Dan Boscov-Ellen says:

    Oh my god, I need this so badly.

  155. Jason sharp says:

    I’ve never used ayahuasca pedal before but after watching the demos on it I’d be stupid not to have one on my pedal board!

  156. Jonathan Tremblay says:

    As beautiful is, is it’s sound. This is definitely one pedal I’d love to have.

  157. Great sounding pedal! I’ve participated in just over 70 ayahuasca rituals and the Sacred Medicine saved me from severe alcoholism and allowed me to get back to really living and making music. It makes me incredibly happy to see a cool, awesome-sounding, true-to-its-name pedal. Hand-painted even! Congratulations to all involved!

  158. This time I am actually more excited about the backstory and the artwork than I am about how it sounds. It does sound awesome though!

  159. Benjamin Thies says:

    Wow. Just, wow. <3

  160. *Warning* these babies are out of control and may lead to serious complications with your marriage! Love Love Love these pedals. The workman ship, attention to detail and the art work. I can’t get enough!

  161. Sounds really great. Would love to get my hands on one of these.

  162. Looks and sounds sweet! A beauty!

  163. Unique sound and texture. Could spend days suspended in the ether with this pedal.

  164. Braden Clarke says:

    What an incredibly interesting and atmospheric pedal, would love to win this!

  165. Ideas blow into my mind with this. Id really like to experiment with it.

  171. Form meets function to beautiful effect. Love the ability to tweak to your heart’s (and ear’s) delight. Looking forward to experiencing and learning more about the entire line — well done!

  172. Love the artwork, but even more I love how unique they are sounding and with options that they have…I think I could write some awesome music with the inspiration and use of those pedals!

  173. Amazing effects!

  185. It’s really great cause that’s something I don’t hear a lot in work. Would love to be able to take that around with me.

  186. Brett Paschen says:

    I love the Ayahuasca pedal! It sounds great in all of the demos that I have seen.I really like the not so clean trem sound(sort of choppyness tremolo).This is a trem/fuzz pedal tweakers dream with all of the options that you could ever imagine.

  187. I need this in my life

  188. I want one of these so bad!

  189. Carl Helton says:

    Yea I’m looking forward to hearing from you

  190. Deep in the jungles of the Amazon there is a magical brew called the Ayahuasca. It is used by the natives to find the answers to their questions. Some seek answers for life. Other seek answers for love. Then there are others like me who search to find the ultimate tone. The sound we hear in our most lucid psychedelic dream. I believe this pedal is the answer I seek. The brew has shown me the way…

  191. Unbelievable! These pedals are BEYOND amazing…

  192. These look and sound amazing! I’d love to get my hands on one.

  193. Josh Kealiher says:

    Tone machines! Would love to add to my rig some day

  194. Nitsan Gur says:

    I can’t believe you are giving away one of these machines!
    That’s so awesome! amazing sounds!!

  195. gianfranco says:

    Hey! seems like the single box paradise for tweakers that loves rich noisy textures.
    Good woork!

  196. Gianfranco says:

    Well, apparently provides a totally new sonic experience (at least from what i heared coming from a single box)
    Tweak paradise, soniscapes factory.
    Excellent work, i would love to meet with it in some space-time coincidence.

    Greetings from argentina!

  197. Tom Richardson says:

    These pedals are crazy good, look fantastic too.

  198. Super pumped about any new fuzz pedal. I don’t know when we got to the age of adding in different effects with fuzz – but it’s a golden era!

  199. Lisa Scott says:

    You can’t beat a good fuzz and these sound like great fuzz pedals

  200. Gabriel Bustamante says:

    I have to say, the knobs video really sold me on this pedal, wouldn’t have thought of any applications otherwise, but after hearing his video I want to incorporate this sound into as many songs as I can!

  201. Incredible artwork on these pedals :)

  202. Joshua Emiabata says:

    Wubba lubba dub dub! These look sick!

  203. Eric Cannaday Sr. says:

    Very interesting and tonaly diverse pedals…would love to have one on my board

  205. Mike Foschi says:

    I’m itching to try this pedal out!!
    I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, I’ve only heard it via on videos posted…..I NEED to have this and be able to play with it!!!
    And I have the perfect open spot for it on board!!

  206. Awesome!!

  207. Remi Quenin says:

    The AYAHUASCA Fuzz is absolutly fantastic !!!

  208. Anthony Pennito says:

    Gorgeous pedal

  209. Bart Turner says:

    would love to split my signal and get a de facto wet/dry control going for this, it adds such a unique texture.
    cant help but worry that these will end up a little wasted on traditional fuzz/trem applications :p a pedal like this needs a real creative wrangler!

  210. These Look so awesome *__*

  211. Clearly more thn just a pretty looking pedal! And I love the lo-fi sound of it! This is definitely an exciting and interesting piece of tech! It’s on the top of my list now!

  212. Rheal Gaud says:

    Wow, it’s an amazing pedal, very cool and I’d love to have one on my pedalboard.

  213. Alex Rubenstein says:

    Woooow. Where are the vactrols in the signal path? Does anyone have a schematic so we can do the mod ourselves? I hope so!!!

  214. David Milchick says:

    I’d love to try this out on my board! Great trippy sounds and great looks, to boot!

  215. Kurt Loewen says:

    So excited about this pedal! The range of sounds are just sooo cool.

    In the market for a new fuzz, and this is now at the top of my list!

  216. Kenny Sheldon says:

    Wow you never cease to amaze me! The look and vibe of the Ayahuasca is just downright beautiful, crazy fuzzy and gooey, with just the right amount insanely dirty and spitty goodness ;-)

  217. Walt Blythe says:

    Such interesting and lush tones. Perfect for soundscaping and diving into the ethereal substance that is music. Woah

  218. Will Scott says:

    So in love with the sound of this pedal. Would be a dream to own it!

  219. I didn’t know pedals could be that neat, that wide ranged effect and that… scary! Great hearted job!

  220. Kevin Via says:

    Of all the new trends to break out of the box and decorate your pedals in a unique array of paint….these pedals win hands down. No doubt, you can take the case off of your pedal board with pride and garner a conversation starter with one of these!

  221. john Sainato says:

    Cool looking box

  222. Kerrin Sharpley says:

    Stunning design and sounds on these pedals! Love it!

  223. Martin Normandeau says:

    I didn’t know pedals could be that neat, that wide ranged effect and that scary! Great hearted job!

  224. Starting new band. With this pedal anything can happen \m/

  225. Evan Goldstein says:


  226. I’ve been on my first Ayahuasca ceremony a couple months back. Definitely a life changing experience. Hearing your samples I can see where you came from with this name. It’s spot on!

  227. Super cool!

  228. Here for dat giveaway. Give me.

  229. wow, what a nice sound! love the tremolo!

  230. I want this sooooooooo bad!

  231. Daniel Miller says:

    Sounds really interesting. I like the Fuzz the most. Artwork is stellar. Would love to get my hands (or should I say toes?) on a few of these!

  232. I am very curious about this pedal!

  233. This might be the single most captivating sound that I’ve heard out of a pedal so far. It’s not the most complex, but the sound itself is just spot on. Can’t wait to hear it in real life!

  234. Joshua Meade says:

    Dude thank you so much for bringing these pedals up. I’ve honestly never heard of them before. But it just shows how diverse the music/pedal scene is now. I love to hear of new companies that bring their unique style!

  235. Stoked on these guys

  236. Such a pretty good sound!

  237. so dreamy!

  238. Sebastiaan Wets says:

    I first stumbled upon the Ayahuasca stompbox in a somewhat vague youtube clip. It wasn’t very informative about its features but the crazy sound this pedal made blew me away. would like to one day own one of these. Also, I like the paint job!

  239. Cory Settoon says:

    These pedals look and sounds incredible.

  240. What an incredibly interesting tool this could be, I’d love to have this.

  241. Stefan Nerandzic says:

    Daaaamn! What a crazy-sounding pedal! The name couldn’t be more appropriate for some of the sounds it makes…

  242. from design to sound – love ❤

  243. Manuel Cordero Rodriguez says:

    Incredible pedals!! They look and sound very well.

  244. Bill Yates says:

    The artwork alone looks worth it!! DMT!!

  245. Tim Danes says:

    Didn’t know these are pretty much Chase Bliss!

  246. Tim Danes says:

    These pedals look amazing! Cool backstory too.

  247. These pedals sound absolutely rad! Need to own one so bad.

  248. Trond Kjellevoll says:

    Great pedals. Nice paint and artcrafts.

  249. Wow such an interesting looking pedal. Would really love to win this competition and utilize this funky tool in making ambient music. :)

  250. David Ashfield says:

    Great review as ever Gabriel

  251. oh my god, I grew up listening to Os Mutantes!
    Really cool to see it here!!

  252. angst jock says:


  253. Matt Fraser says:

    I honestly really dig this pedal ! its got some really neat tones , would be really interesting in a ambient sound like setting !

  254. Mike Dimond says:

    good looking(and sounding) gear

  255. One of the most useful and great sounding pedals!!

  256. Sounds exciting, huh?

  257. J’adore ce que vous faites !

  258. Kevin Henderson says:

    Another great review and a great looking/sounding pedal

  259. I have to admit, these pedals look amazing, and sound great. Definitely placed on the wish list! Cheers for sharing

  260. Graydon Smith says:

    Would die to get these on my limited pedal board! Would make me have access to a lot more effects for my ambient/shoegaze music! Hope I win and congrats on the anniversary!

  261. Timothy C Castine says:

    Molto bene!

  262. Rad artvorks. Would love to try one out ;)

  263. Chris Parry says:

    Awesome stuff. Truely “Out of the Box” thinking!

  264. Ian Nadin says:

    I could have crazy times with that

  265. Merlin Long says:

    Looks like awesome fun.

  266. Great pedals, would like to see them on my pedalboard.

  267. Great pedals, would like to see them on my board.

  268. Awesome art! Cool, strange sound.
    Not something that would stay on all the time, but I think it could add some really awesome effects during a set!

  269. Jodie Gillespie says:

    Love the design, love the ethos and even more love the sound

  270. Gregory Sullivan says:

    I love the high quality and myriad of sounds from the Ayahuasca pedal.

  271. devin capote says:

    Super stoked on this pedal, a really unique combination of sounds in one box.

  272. Jarret Badgwell says:

    You put genius in a box and and let people stomp on it and what comes out is tonal heaven and hell when you want it. Love it when humans create things like this!! Beautiful inside and out!! I want and need!!!

  273. Jon Henderson says:

    Amazing pedal and a well suited name. I am setting my intention to acquire this pedal.

  274. Kirby Levad says:

    These are so cool ….. I hope I have the pleasure of hearing one first hand….. keep up the good work

  275. Can’t wait to try one of these!

  276. Wm Matthew Williams says:

    Fingers crossed…

  277. Love the artwork.

  278. Gedeon Deak says:

    Great creative pedal ideas *and* graphics! Keep on doing.

  279. Richard Cantle says:

    Very hippy dude

  280. Love it. Art, sounds, everything. This is the kind of innovation I think the effect world is finally catching up on.

  281. These look and sound amazing! Want want want!

  282. Gabe Tonestoy says:

    Awesome, thanks for the very interesting backstory, Gabriel. I had seen some of these Abradacabra Audio Ayahuasca pedals for sale online, noticed the similar layout and aesthetics to Chase Bliss pedals, and wondered what the scoop was. Well, now I know!

    That said, I’ll wait for Part II to this backstory, or perhaps the full-length and “unedited” version of this story. Why? Because towards the end of your overview, you state: “So that pretty much sums up the Ayahuasca story so far minus the weird synchronicity stuff that no one really wants to know.” Personally, I want to know about all that “weird synchronicity stuff” and, frankly, in these important times in which we’ve all chosen to live, we could all use a little more synchronicity to help us awaken. So come on now, don’t hold back, just give us the whole story, synchronicities and all, hahahahaha. Cheers!

  283. As wild and mysterious as it’s artwork, I’d love to get my hands on one of these one day to up the fuzz!

  284. Mikaël Cardin says:

    This is everything I have ever wanted in a fuzz… I wish I didn’t sleep on the demos when it first came out so I could’ve grabbed one already. Sending out to the Universe to manifest one in my life.

  285. Mikaël Cardin says:

    This is everything I have ever wanted in a fuzz… I wish I didn’t sleep on the demos when it first came out so I could’ve grabbed one already. Sending out to the Universe to manifest one in my life.

  286. rich locke says:


  287. bennett moss says:

    this pedal sounds wild. beautiful artwork too

  288. James Storti says:

    I am blown away by the tone of these pedals! As a graphic design artist

  289. Talk about the perfect pedal!! This would surely make any crazy-sounding song part you have in your head has come to life with more punch than you could’ve imagined. Not to mention ramping the LFO and Depth simultaneously!! The THINGS one could do with this..MY GOODNESS. A+

  290. Super cool, never heard of this brand before

  291. max biscoe says:

    This is a great ‘ambient soundscape’! pedal, love the graphic as well. Good job

  292. Nick Hopkins says:

    Big believer in mojo on the board…these pedals are just dripping with it!

  293. Robert Fuentes says:

    Nice Artwork! It’s about time to put some precolumbian art on a pedal!

  294. Gorgeous!!!!

  295. Dang. Those are some sweet graphics, too.

  296. Carlos Gandarillas says:

    Been stoked about this pedal for some time. Ayahuasca is a herbal mix that is used to achieve astral projection and out of body experiences, and the demos from that pedal sound exactly like that…

  297. Tanya Peterson says:

    I’m just a casual player, but my son loves interesting pedals!

  298. Cassie Sotello says:

    Wow, this pedal’s versatility seems great. It’s an interesting combo too- trem and fuzz. I would love to get my hands on one. I have been looking for a fuzz pedal for about 3 months. This would end my search!

  299. David Harris says:

    The graphics are cool, regardless of how it sounds.

  300. Giorgio Cimoli says:

    Looks amazing,
    Sounds amazing,
    Must have it.

  301. Patrick O says:

    Heynow..let’s get me and those pedals a room.

  302. Pedals are the way and the light

  303. James Arno says:

    This sounds totally rad. I didn’t even realize I needed this kind of lo-fi old radio sound, much less that tremolo fuzz was a thing to begin with. Awesome!

  304. Definitely looks like an inspiration machine! Would love to add one of these to my collection.

  305. John Reid says:

    This thing rocks!!!!!!!!!

  306. Scott Given says:

    Ever since seeing that Knobs video teaser, I’ve been practically daydreaming about this pedal and those crazy sounds. Throwing my hat into the ring.

  307. Daniel Lane says:

    Beautiful looking pedals

  308. Claire Tucker says:

    This looks fun! Love the psychedelic artwork! Great giveaway!

  309. Steve Castaldi says:

    Would love to try these out! Found this sight while researching a fuzz pedal and it would be great to get to mess around with one of these.

  310. This tremolo sounds amazing. I would love to add one of these babies to my board

  311. Cory Clifford says:

    That artwork!!!

  312. Gavin Wright says:

    An awesomely strange pedal, this Ayahuasca… Look gorgeous!

  313. Rick Locke says:

    I am going to go on a vision quest with this pedal.

  314. Marco Gallerin says:

    Very inspiring sounding pedal! I love tremolo fuzz…Maybe if I drink enough Ayahuasca, it will bring me magical good luck so I can win this contest and get a rad pedal on my board!!!

  315. Nick Morrow says:

    Such a beautiful pedal, crazy psychedelic noise funk extravaganza :)

  316. Andrew Campbell says:

    It’s always inspiring to witness a variety of individuals come together to follow through on projects that really only further inspire others in an artistic (specifically musical) collective. As an amateur builder with Joel, Jaime (EQD) and others as large influences along the way, it’s one of the most satisfying feelings to have created and shared an original design with like-minded, curious folks aiming to limitless interact with it.

    The feeling of being a part of that process from the receiving end is just as palpable to me, so I just admire you guys doing what you love and enjoy contributing to that.

    Brilliant stuff, homies.

  317. Beautiful pedals, would love to add them to my collection!!!

  318. What an awesome set of pedals!

  319. Matthew D Cullen says:

    It’s fantastic learning the backstory on such a unique and mysterious pedal!

  320. matthew kelley says:

    wow great design! sounds as cool as it looks

  321. D’Wan Ellington says:

    I neeeeeeeerdd this pedal! Everything I’ve wanted!

  322. jonathan armstrong says:

    woah those designs are sweet !!

  323. Michelle schuett says:

    Music is medicine and these pedals transform it just as their namesake on the mind. Ayahuasca is a psychedelic vine from the Amazon! Carry on!

  324. Daniel Hunt says:

    Awesome to see this pedal getting some more coverage. I’ve been intrigued since watching the mysterious little knobs clip awhile back & it’s nice to have some more light shed on it. Such an appropriate name for such a unique pedal! I would love to take this journey someday! Thanks!

  325. Benjamin Murdy says:

    These pedals look great, and I’m sure they sound just as good.

  326. Nasif Emiliano Ahun says:

    The best look in pedals

  327. Jon Ryan says:

    It’s like a more modern, versatile Gristleizer, which has been on my pedal bucket list for years. I will use this pedal with my 1973 Gibson Ripper to make hella experimental spacious sounds.

  328. Brian Finn says:

    Love these pedals! Would love to add one to my arsenal!

  329. Tristan Pollack says:

    This Ayahuasca would be perfect for my death grips cover band. Ayahuasca heaven!

  330. Laurent says:

    Beautiful pedals. Pieces of art. I’m intrigued.. The effect and range of possibilities seems fun to play with

  331. Anthony Laing says:

    I’ve come over all 1960’s. Great looking pedals

  332. william stead says:

    That’s a sound I could get lost in, awesome sound by an awesome reviewer :)

  333. I’d love to see what all these pedals can do!

  334. Sean Cullen says:

    This pedal looks super cool, can’t wait to try one!

  335. Wow!

  336. Sean Alexander says:

    Three ayahuascas
    side by side by side
    just one is a dream

  337. Matthew Peterson says:

    I am interested in this brand. I have been in the market for a new fuzz pedal, but I am not sure where to be looking. I like a lot of control, which it sounds like this is more for my guitar. I usually stick with the big muff & I love my RAT. These pedals seem interesting and I would definitely like to get my hands on one.

  338. Harvard Giles says:

    Abbra Caddabra & aloha!

  339. Tommy Stickel says:

    Whoa, what the heck was that! This pedal obviously does some unique stuff man. I’d love to get a hold of one, join an Indie Alt Rock garage band, and get dirty!

  340. Don Hutchko says:

    One wild set of pedals

  341. John Rosan says:

    I really loved this article. It made me think about the Ayahuasca in a way I hadn’t before. I would love to be able to randomize the tremolo waveform with an envelope generator. I feel like I could do some really cool disintegrating tones with this pedal on a multitude of instrumentation. Has anyone demo’d this with a drum machine or synth engine yet?

    Light goes both ways.

    Mahalo ~ Tone

  342. Walt Farrish says:

    Great giveaway would love to have all of these

  343. So beautiful :)

  344. This sounds like a dark/hypnotical texture. I liked it a lot, in regards of being a peruvian guitarist.

  345. Colin Baldwin says:

    Trippy Man!!!

  346. Taylor Miller says:

    if only more were available, I hope to win

  347. Nicholas Emelio says:

    Besides the absolutely stunning artwork, this thing can get all sorts of crazy and wacky sounds. Would love to add one to my pedal board.

  348. matthew perry says:

    I’d love to win one of these sweet pedals

  349. Please open our eyes, the plant calls us~

  350. Albin Johansson says:

    I just love the artwork on these and the sounds are insane! Great work!

  351. Albin Johansson says:

    I just love the artwork on these ones and the sounds are insane! Great work!

  352. this is one very unique and inspiring pedal with a highly interesting overall theme!

  353. Paul Stewart says:


  354. Takahiro Hayashida says:

    I hope they will ship this beast to Japan..

  355. Lovely graphics

  356. Pretry cool!

  357. great pedal!

  358. Send it on over, I dig it!

  359. I’d love to play a twisted ‘how soon is now’ with this puppy!

  360. I’d love to trip out on that pedal!

  361. Eibert Draisma says:

    I really love the looks, the colors.

    and the sound too…..

  362. Peter Teipe says:

    These look and sound like awesome pedals…. It’s gotta look cool right out of the box, and its got some great fuzz & tremolo sounds as well. Would love to have it!

  363. John Voyles says:

    Def cool to hear the origin stories of the various circuits in the Ayahuasca and the process of refinement to get to the finished version, pretty amazing! Cool lookin’ and sounding pedal!

  364. Shawn Schollenbruch says:

    Yeah. Big Chase Bliss fan. Love this format. WANT.

  365. Antonio Filho says:

    Dude, those stomps are awesome.

    Not to mention their pretty faces… Ver they look good on a pedalboard.

  366. Frank McGar says:

    Wow, these pedals look amazing…now I can cancel my trip to Peru!

  367. Eugenio says:

    That’s a great pedal! I love the sound!

  368. Would love to try out that fuzz on a bass

  369. Carl M Hedden says:

    Wow, sounds great!

  370. That’s a psychedelic looking pedal!

  371. Collin Moore says:

    These are some awesome sounding and looking pedals. I would love to own one and add it to the collection. WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE BABY!!!

  372. Gary Plaus says:

    Far out man!

  373. Gary Plaus says:

    Far out man!

  374. these are the most gorgeous pedals i have ever seen

  375. Mario Alves says:

    I’ve been experimenting with fuzz and trem for a while now – kind of an alternative take on the fuzz/univibe thing. Just learning of this pedal makes me think I could be onto something. Looking forward to further exploration.

  376. Grant Ewing says:

    I love it. I went to order one of the first batch after CBA put a link to it in their newsletter but unfortunately, they were already sold out. I’ve been unsuccessfully trying to snag one ever since. They look and sound amazing.

  377. Pedals are beautiful

  378. Trevor Owen says:


  379. Deke Roberts says:

    Stack me! I really hope I like this thing when I finally get to try it, I want one of each! This has to be the first time I’ve wanted a pedal because it looks good, if it sounds half as good I’ll be buying one.

  380. Nathan Napier says:
  381. space sounds

  382. those look awsome and have some crazy tones i’d love to have those 3 pedals

  383. Santana says:

    Crazy sound! These could be used so well to create all manner of off-the-wall ambient sounds !

  384. Stanton says:

    Long live analog!

  385. awesome! and love the art!

  386. Stephen Wells says:

    I love music and I love visual art. These pedals give us both. The pedals portray a whimsical side of music that few builders of musical pedals do. If you like music that tells a story (Like Rush and their song Trees) then why not pedals that not only enhance the music that you play but provide an insight to the inner workings of the artist that painted them. A muse of fusion creating an all new or at least rarely used expression that actually belongs together like peas and carrots (wink). Then add the ultimate benefit of a pedal that does what no other single pedal does by combining tremolo and fuzz which is also an amalgamation or fusion of another sort. Keep up the mind bending. People on my planet love it.

    Thank you very much for this opportunity.

  387. What a wacky beast!

  388. Stuart Pearson says:


  389. Jakob Helgi Thordarson says:

    Wonderfully twisted and interesting!

  390. Jason Sanders says:

    Mmmm I would love to be able to try out one of these masterpieces!

  391. Simen Andersen says:

    Fuzz and Tremolo, sounds like a fun mix in ONE pedal :)

  392. You guys freaking rule. I hope I win. Thanks for the opportunity.

  393. Joe Gushen says:

    Let’s get lost in the jungle together!

  394. Cliff Presley says:

    These pedals are AWESOME!

  395. Matt Ivaliotes says:

    Cool pedal. Dirty trem sounds can be fun and expressive and really find a place in a thick mix. And of course the Chase Bliss format is a remarkable combination of compact size, high utility and flexibility, and fun design.

  396. Hans schepens says:

    Great pedals! In the ever groing boutique market these pedals really stand out.

  397. Brian Wagner says:

    Thanks for the opportunity

  398. Christopher Jacques says:

    This pedal is sort of like something from a dream come to life, honestly. I love the fuzz sound on those Os Mutantes albums, and I’ve never quite nailed it down. Stacking fuzz and tremolo–my two favorite effects–is something I do a lot (my main board has fuzz tremolo fuzz tremolo, with some other, less essential stuff). And as much as I love my Gravitas, I have always wished I could get it choppier. Those enclosures are divine, too. I’ve seen a few Ayahuascas online, and the enclosure gives away Joel Korte’s hand, but it’s great to hear this story, and I do hope to see more wonderful Abracadabra collaborations.

  399. rafael balboa says:

    all I want for Xmas is that 3 Ayahuascas lot, thT would boost mu board beyonf time and space, i would be thankful 4 ever, endless trip!!!

  400. WOW, I need these pedals.

  401. Abunchofpedals says:

    If anyone is interested, I just finished a video of it last night.


  402. Kieran Martin says:

    Commenting for the win

  403. Matthew Kopecky says:

    Wow, that’s very interesting. I’d try it out for sure.

  404. That Knobs episode was intense. Interesting sounds & intriguing paint job. These pedals are out there!!

  405. Gimme

  406. These pedals look awesome! I wish I can get some for a review…

  407. Loving the design on these pedals! Would love to give one a try.

  408. Joel is the man! Would love to get my hands on one of these!

  409. It seems very amazing!! I love it!

  410. Nicholas Meyer says:

    Are these pedals made by Stan Lee?

  411. I’ve always sort of wondered where I would put a pedal like this in my chain. Fun combo, for sure. Just a tricky front end / back end effect combination.

  412. Denver Sheffield says:

    This has got to be the most interesting and mysterious pedal ever. I have got to add it to my board!

  413. Great combination of effects in a small package. I need it!

  414. Steve Robinson says:

    These pedals are gorgeous.

  415. Jarret Green says:

    Love pedals that combine 2 effects, especially if one is fuzz. I think I like the Ceilo version best.

  416. emmanuel says:

    If only i could have one!!!
    It sounds amazing!!!!
    Love it!!!!!!

  417. Joseph Bullard says:

    Love the look and sound of these! Would love to win these! :)

  418. Would love to experiment with this.

  419. Coleman says:

    These sound incredible! I need one!

  420. L30NLuzifer says:

    That pedal sounds amazing!
    I’m looking for a fuzz/distortion pedal for my ambient setup for quite a long time now. Somehow i’m not satisfied with any of those that i tried until now, but that one sounds promising!

  421. Dimitris says:

    All of them seems awesome

  422. Vincent says:

    I think I need one of these on my board. I love fuzz. I think a trem pedal would do some cool things with a double stacked fuzz signal further warped by a phaser at the end of the chain. But I just make weird industrial noise in my apartment so what do I know.

  423. Hi,
    I dream every day of using this pedal.
    It seems so incredible!!!!!

  424. Whoa, this thing sounds pretty damn amazing.

  425. Sofía Chiquiar says:

    I love the tremolo, love the colors.

  426. Geoff Brown says:

    Awesome and unique tone. Could do a lot with it.

  427. Diarmuid says:

    Sweet pedals!

  428. Wow, that’s an amazing sound, i love the pedals, words cannot describe what do i feel when i heard the sound of that pedals

  429. Wow, the look is a piece of art on his own

  430. These look absolutely great. I think they just gave me the kick I needed to get onto hand-painting pedals. And great demo video, as always fom Knobs !

  431. A work of art in more ways than one, with a nice fuzz and choppy tremolo to add character.

  432. It looks as good as it sounds. There should be a great fuzz for everyone and the tremolo flavour means this may be the one for me.

  433. Phillip Cowdrey says:

    Its a beautiful noise coming out of the ground
    The stunning artwork enhances the sound
    But living in England we miss out all round

  434. All varieties of fuzz are welcome in our world and the changing art element of this one makes it even more so.

  435. beautiful artwork, and really nice sounding. i hope i win one, it would be awesome in my fuzzy crust punk band.

  436. Bruno Salheb Moelas Ribeiro says:

    This is really awesome!!!

  437. Evan Kostalek says:

    This is one seriously killer pedal! Love the design and the backstory that goes with it

  438. I want one…no, two…wait, seven!

  439. Dan Lawrence says:

    One of these would definitely change my practicing pattern.

  440. Sensory works of art; period.

  441. Interesting

  442. Ian Lary says:

    This pedal looks awesome. Seems to sum up the tone I have been chasing by using a handful of pedals, all in one box.

  443. Wow nothing like it crazy! Gorgeous! I Can see the possibilities

  444. Man… one day… hopefully…

  445. want to get trippy in the jungle with this thing

  446. Everything about this pedal is so fucking cool. The sound, the art, it’s origin story. It sounds amazing and I am in the market for both a fuzz and a tremolo; I wish they mass produced these!

  447. jonathan says:

    is this the polar opposite of a sensory deprivation chamber?

  448. The art alone is enough to drive my demand. Take my money!

  449. Like real psychedelics I would be much happier being under the influence of this pedal.

  450. Philemon henze says:

    Lovely design! Would Love to try that fuzz

  451. God these are pretty :):):)

  452. Hello to my next pedal!

  453. Taylor Watterson says:

    Man this pedal is sick! I really hope i can get this one!

  454. Does this turn your music into a trippy cartoon? One can only hope!

  455. seth varney says:

    I’m afraid my face will melt if I play one of these

  456. I need this pedal for the love of Glob and all things Holy! It sounds amazing!!!

  457. Miguel Oliveira says:

    Seriously good demo, great pedals, great tone. Wish i could have one

  458. Artem Zaytsev says:

    WHOA! Love the sound and the artwork.

  459. This is the weirdest pedal I’ve ever met, it has to have deep consequences over the music you make…

  460. Peyton Benton says:

    This pedal is strange but in the best possible way ever! Very interesting, you’ve definitely got my attention.

  461. Awesome information! I remember being so intrigued by the initial email they sent about the pedal, so seeing the history of its evolution is super fascinating. Thanks for sharing this!

  462. Jack Wigg says:

    These are the coolest looking pedals I’ve ever seen. Also they sound amazing. Would make an amazing addition to my pedalboard; I love getting crazy sounds out of my guitar.

  463. Christopher Robbins says:

    This is awesome! That knobs demo has me seriously stoked, I always want to buy one but they sell out so quick! Hopefully this giveaway can remedy that ;)

  464. heath pliler says:

    I’d be ecstatic about any one of these

  465. Jonathon Robinson says:

    I could see having a lot of fun with these pedals. They look absolutely amazing as well.

  466. I’m in :)

  467. Wow, what cool pedals! Hope to win! BGE is the BEST!

  468. Pretty fantastic looking pedal. Would love to see if it sounds as good as it looks!

  469. Jack Feerick says:

    Man, that’s a sound with some hair on it. Me likey.

  470. Luke Jackman says:

    I would really like to pair the Ayahuasca with my eurorack modular synth to see what kind of sounds I can make come out of it.

  471. Nice!! Great job!

  472. George B says:

    Certainly look good enough to eat.

  473. Zachary Carpenter says:

    This is so weird I’m getting obsessed. New first tremolo?

  474. Martin Hoffert says:

    Besides the great sounds that come from this incredible pedal it has beautiful graphics. A win win for sure. Thanks for the info and the chance to win one!

  475. i’d do that in a forest full of chimps

  476. Ezra Rodriguez says:

    I’ve known about this pedal since the first 10 came out, although i missed out on that batch, i knew i had to get my hands on one of these pedals! Joel is a genuis when it comes to creating unique, fun, and overall great pedals that i could play with forever. Very inteesting hearing how the pedal came to be, and also keeping up with theories and stories on who’s behind abracadabra audio. Can’t wait to put this thing on my pedalboard!

  477. Javier Neri says:

    I need this DMT shot for my amp!

  478. Alexandru Lacatusu says:

    I love the design and the sound it’s incredible. I want to spend an entire life on that sound.

  479. Dave Ulrich says:

    The knobs demo was insane, would love to grab one of these!

  480. Ted Tilbrook says:

    Insane! Love the parameters and limitless options, makes this thing one of the creative wonders of the world.

  481. Tom dembinski says:

    Seems a quite cool pedal with some interesting tones definitely worth a deeper dive – Great art work too

  482. Tom Dembinski says:

    Would like to explore more sounds with this – I’m sure demo scratches the surface (with some interesting tones)

  483. Ingrid Ruddick says:

    Would love to try one of them, they look amazing

  484. I’d like to take this trip in the Peruvian jungle, scream into the darkness all night

  485. They sounds just just awesome!

  486. Raul Navarro says:

    Nice and psicodelic pedals. Great sound

  487. Chris Muir says:

    I think I love everything about this pedal.

  488. Garett Reding says:

    What absolutely cool looking pedals! I am not a guitar player, I am actually a keys player and mostly play a Rhodes Mark 1 electric piano. I have a pedal board that I have hand picked pedals that accent well with an electric piano, and a solid tremolo is an absolute must, and a fuzz is just that much tastier! Having both in one pedal in a rad enclosure though? Priceless!

  489. Bleu Quick says:

    These look beautiful, and I’m sure they sound even better!

  490. Appropriately named pedal, verry trippy sound, I’d probably use it without the fuzz but seems like a fun pedal indeed.

  491. Stefan Karlsson says:

    I have and love both the Chase Bliss Brothers and Gravitas – would be wonderful to have a flavour of each in a single pedal – which I guess is kind of the point of the Ayahuasca.

  492. Bas Onck says:

    These look absolutely amazing!

  493. Michael Perkins says:

    Do not own a tremolo, so would be a welcome addiition
    Glad to see you back after the long Hiatus!

  494. Jefferson de Geus says:

    Crazy sound


  496. Wow you could just get lost in these pedals nice sounds and art

  497. one of those will be mine, thanks for playing everyone

  498. Nick Buckley says:

    Wow! Very “Saucer Full Of Secrets”! Sounds like countless days of experimental fun with these pedals would barely scratch the surface! And best looking pedals I’ve seen anywhere – love the designs!

  499. Sherman Loper says:

    These sound fun, definately see use for it on my board. Thanks for the review!

  500. Jimmy Svensson says:

    Ayahuasca looks like an exciting pedal. Would love to try it out on some synths. The designs are mind boggling.

  501. Francisco says:

    Niiiiice looking pedal, aesthetically very original. Great wacky fuzz+tremolo combo. Definitely worth having.

  502. Love Regulus VIII sound and hard chop trem so i really want one of these guys!

  503. WOOOTTT!

    This thing gonna take me to the moon and back!!!

  504. Douglas Ives says:

    THESE LOOK AMAZING. AND THEY SOUND EVEN BETTER. I am a massive fan of all the analogue heart digital control style pedals emerging recently.

  505. Very unique and interesting design

  506. nils olsson says:

    would make look better as well …

  507. Jason Fowler says:

    Not only does this thing sound crazy in the best way possible, every incarnation of the artwork is phenomenal.

  508. Cory Jeffer says:

    Ahhh!!!! Love that they’re handpainted!

  509. reed johnson says:

    This has to be the most interesting pedal i have seen in a long time.

  510. I’ve always wanted a Regulus VIII clone and to have it in this package would be amazing…

  511. Crazy design!!

  512. Wicked peds!!!

  513. Andrew Bondy says:

    I need help with the pronunciation.

  514. Pedro Perez says:

    Bloody awesome design!!!

  515. fuzz and trem mmm good

  516. Michael Hanson says:

    I always see Gabriel Tanaka’s pedal reviews and I cant help but think he has the greatest job on the face of the Earth! I can’t wait to try the ayahuasca pedal.

  517. Wow!! What a unique sound — as a guitar player, producer, and insatiable tone nerd, I’m always looking to add new colors to my sonic palette. I’ll have to give the Ayahuasca a closer look!

  518. alessio says:

    I hope I’ll win

  519. Sam Thomas says:

    Always wanted to explore the tone jungle, this looks like the pedal for it!

  520. This might be the first tremolo that I’ve seen which has the right combo of courage in power, a well-matched fuzz that would normally need a separate unit, all the control one could ever need, and beautiful art that leaves no uncertainty about the spirit of pedal. Some amazing explorations in sound are going to come from this.

  521. If I had this pedal, I would use it to rerecord the entirety of Smell the Glove

  522. Louis Kiley says:

    this is the craziest pedal ever made

  523. Luca Moqi says:

    This is the strangest pedal I’ve ever heard/seen and I love it.

  524. These pedals are a forced to be reckoned with! Hoping to pick one up myself!

  525. Never been a fan of trem pedals, but this pedal has my attention. The tones are immense!

  526. Thanks for having the giveaway!

  527. I’ve never wanted a pedal this badly. Nice work! I’ve been listening to the knobs demo on a regular basis since it was posted.

  528. Joel Korte pushing the innovation forward.

  529. This pedal is incredible! I’ve been listening to the knobs demo on a regular basis since it was posted. I need one.

  530. I’ve had strange dreams where I SWEAR AA’s Ayahuasca is behind the crazy backdrops of noise creeping it all out. I would love to try one of these out with my fretless jazz bass. I have a humch it would be great friends with my Ct5 by MTLASM.
    If you guys have have any trouble picking a winner, maaaayne just pick me ☺️

  531. Killer sounding trem!

  532. Rosendo Jiménez says:

    These pedals are fucking awesome

  533. Awwww yeah!!!!

  534. Tommy Kavounidis says:

    Ever since I first heard about I couldn’t stop thinking about what the name actually means and how amazing it sounds!

  535. Zach Zook says:

    FINALLY. HUGE CBA fan so I’m stoked to finally know who is behind this sweet pedal!

  536. marc-antoine says:

    What is that space ship is doing in my rig ???

  537. I am a huge fan of pedals that give you so much control over their sound – particularly with ramping. This type of pedal isn’t usually for those who are looking to recreate, as much as those who are looking to create. Half of the fun in figuring out what cool sounds it has in store for you.

  538. Joshua Biehler says:

    The amount of different tones you can get out of this pedal is mind-boggling – and in such a small form factor?!?!? TAKE MY MONEY!

  539. Oleksandr P. says:

    Cool and very interesting!

  540. luis almendros says:

    great looking pedals. I´d like to test one.

  541. this pedal sounds like moving in all directions. What I need!

  542. David Rodrick says:

    Can I please have a pedal? Pretty please? I had a tonal recall, and it was my favorite pedal ever, but someone stole it from me…

  543. John Lawrie says:

    I’ve seen cheeky snippets of this pedal floating around the internet for a bit, but it’s great to finally see what it’s all about (I thought someone was about to get sued for stealing Joel’s design aesthetic if I’m honest). Always a big fan of weird fuzzes!

  544. alberto says:

    So different, I like them.

  545. Laurent de c says:

    Nice ! love it

  546. Very very funny and original design.

  547. Cliff Shelton says:

    These pedals look and sound amazing. My son and I are basically learning together; I got my guitars over the years, but never really did much to them or learned to play very well. Now that he’s a teen and finally excited about it, I’m looking to get new gear. These would be amazing to have! Can’t wait to see and hear them in person. Great job!

  548. Jose Manuel Pulgarin Ventura says:

    Great sound! Thanks for the chance.

  549. Finally some light shed into the deep mysteries of the jungle!

    The fact that the pedal could not be ordered/delivered to outside of the US has been the ultimate barrier that forced me to keep my GAS at ease. But this is another issue, this is the chance I was waiting for!!

    Finger crossed, and good vibes

  550. Peter Cattaneo says:

    What a beautiful child.

  551. Nerijus says:

    Amazing stuff

  552. Joel Gray says:

    Cool ass pedal. Need me one like that

  553. Trey Klemczewski says:

    Woah that demo video gets me excited about this. It sounds amazing.

  554. Trey Klemczewski says:

    Woah that demo video gets me excited about this. It sounds amazing

  555. Slawomir says:

    Beautiful painting and exciting opportunity. Thank you.

  556. Beautiful concept and execution, would be so grateful and honored to have this on my board.

  557. Wow! The Artwork on these look amazing. I’d love to have one of of my own and be able to hear it for myself!
    We don’t get them here in India… So please give it to me!

  558. Gabriel Miller says:

    Seems like the quest for the fuzz+ is always on. I think listening to Yr living all over me, i was always struck by how much a fuzz when truly f*cked with, like J. using a Wah with literal abandon, could open up sonically. This seems like another pedal that can take you to that territory and beyond – would love to get my hands on one and prove it!

  559. Rob Miller says:

    This is the Pepsi Kona of guitar pedals. The stuff dreams are made of. I entered the contest and hope I can add this to the win column (and pedalboard), much similar to the way Megaman added “Leaf Shield” to his arsenal in the NES game after beating robot boss Wood Man.

  560. Ayahuasca’s Fuzzzzzzzzz pretty

  561. Ayahuasca – cool pedals.

  562. George Berry says:

    Space. I need space. I need this space in my life. I want fuzzy spaciousness. I need the Ayahuasca. It can complete my space. No more gaps, space filled. Ahhhh, space.

  563. Matt D. says:

    Gabriel and crew,
    Thank you for this contest. I’ve felt a bit like Indiana Jones trying to find this mythical legend of a pedal, so it’s incredible you are giving one away. Joel & Chase Bliss Audio, Hannah M. Haugberg, Knobs, Andy Dolan, Jack Nelson, Chris Bradford, and Abracadabra Audio have done something truly special in the industry. Not only collaboratively creating something empheral and timeless through bending circuits, paint, and sound, but inspiring us all to innovate and be better musicians! Thanks to all involved here-it would definitely be great to win this one!!

  564. Will Swann says:

    Amazing sounding pedals! I’m clean/sober and can’t experience true ayahuasca, but would love to experience the path through sound.

  565. These look miNt

  566. Jonathan says:

    I would love to do some weird shit with this pedal!

  567. Love those fuzzy sounds. Love the spastic trem.

  568. Those Ayahuasca machines are glorious.

  569. I never win anything, pretty cool pedals, though

  570. I thought only Chase Bliss Audio put zillions of knobs on their stuff…

  571. Tanner Slice says:

    One of these would go great with my Tonal Recall, Brothers and Gravitas! I stack tremolos a lot and I bet this guy would go really well with it’s original CBA cousin :) It’s got a fantastic sound!

  572. Jon Moy says:

    Tremendous-Fuzz sounds like it could be real funky. Play some Chic with it. Digging the the art! Totally one of a kind. I would sport it proudly.

  573. I think this would a real creative spark to any day’s musical adventures

  574. Ben Burr says:

    Incredibly innovative! I’ve never come across any pedal like this. It can go from sounding like an apocalyptic future where robots rule the world to a serene space exploration mission. Very versatile and gorgeous finish.

  575. Sebastian Rozo says:

    Ready to go on a trip to inside the mind with this thing

  576. Awsome!

  577. Chris Faricy says:

    I have recently Discovered the mystical & spiritual properties of the Ayahuasca plant. If I win, I hope to re-live my Journey into the Musical realm. Thanks for following your hidden mystical wisdom by Picking MY Entry.

  578. Chuck Hanning says:

    Sounds cool! Like to try one!

  579. If I win this pedal, when I go to Peru for my annual spirit quest I will bring the pedal with me and have it blessed by a shaman.

  580. Very cool pedal

  581. Curazy colours

  582. Always looking for new twists and turns to take with my Ax, and this sounds like a rollercoaster full!!!

  583. Wow Nice graphics

  584. Wow Nice graphics

  585. Ay caramba!

  586. Marcos santianes says:

    Oh yeahh,thank you

  587. Preciosos la verdad, con mucho estilo, me encantaría probarlos

  588. Looks sick

  589. Manuel J. Gallardo Montadas says:

    Maravillosos pedales los del sorteo, espero conseguir alguno.

  590. Antonio says:

    Verdaderas obras de arte contemporáneo

  591. Alfredo Fernandez says:

    Diseño espectacular. Gracias por la oportunidad de poder ganar alguno de ellos en el sorteo

  592. Very creative weapons…they inspire my mind to create new music.

  593. Micah Benjamin Berlow says:

    It honestly seems to me that this is what the pedal craze has led up to, an amazing pedal that sounds great and is versatile and looks beautiful to boot!

  594. This pedal is definitely capable of some trippy sounds. I would love to get my hands on one.

  595. lewis hahn says:

    Reminds me of the tea. Unique and killer sound, never heard anything like it.

  596. Vince Dingman says:

    After looking around for more videos of the Ayahuasca and hearing what it is capable of (as well as the facts of the Ayahuasca drink itself), I can definitely say that it has brought me so much creative inspiration. I want AA to stick around as long as possible to push new ideas forward!

  597. I love CBA and greatly appreciate Joel’s philosophy of no compromise on both audio quality and parameter control. Special run pedals like this are both exciting and mysterious. I think it really gives people something that they feel is uniquely theirs, which can be a powerful source of inspiration. To be inspired by a pedal is all one can really ask for, and Chase Bliss pedals excel at it!

  598. The Ayahuasca… what a little menace to have around!!

  599. Mathias says:

    They both look and sound cool. I’ll never be able to pronounce Ayahuasca, but I’d love to own one!

  600. Well color me impressed! Pretty epic ideas, from past fuzz builders; and inspiration for future circuit nerds. I believe that collaboration in a craft is essential to developing new ideas, and innovation. Y’all have obviously accomplished that! Keep on keepin’ the AA idea alive! It could yield some really interesting stomp boxes.

  601. Well color me impressed! Pretty epic ideas, from past fuzz builders; and inspiration for future circuit nerds. I believe that collaboration in a craft is essential to developing new ideas, and innovation. Y’all have obviously accomplished that! Keep on keepin’ the AA idea alive! It could yield some really interesting boxes.

  602. Michael Best says:

    Pretty dang unique idea! Would love to try it on synths or as a studio insert too!

  603. Iqmal Hafeez says:

    Digital Brain, Analog Heart. Enough for this time. Fuzz Trem is crazy shit.

  604. Paul Kyllo says:

    I love the in depth reviews from best guitar effects. I’m currently shopping for a killer tremolo pedal and the Ayahuasca sounds like it would be a good choice. Thanks for keeping me up to date on all the latest gear.

  605. John Seetoo says:

    Fuzz and Tremolo – interesting combination – something to give Z. Vex a run for the money.

  606. Scott Carncross says:

    Ahhh! It’s so beautiful. In sights and sounds.

  607. Easy to notice the passion of the artist. Interesting fuzz tones

  608. Bryce Cronkite-Ratcliff says:

    Dig it, seems more like an extension of the instrument than just an effect

  609. Whoooaaahhh! You can almost smell it!

  610. Very good article! Os Mutantes! Makes sense. Big fan of Chase Bliss, I’m three deep Into Joel’s beautiful designs now … and I’ve listened to Gravitas demos over and over and over again, always wishing it was a bit faster, with a harder edge. Then this beautiful thing came into being … it would be wonderful if this pedal was in regular production (and even better if you could order one from outside the US) but … maybe it’s for the best … no …. it’s not … I can’t say that … I really would like to have one … !

  611. Steven Chell says:

    As soon as I read about this pedal I was away to experiment with my own fuzz and tremolo pedals, and try using them in new ways. It’s amazing that you don’t even need to own this pedal in order to be inspired by it, great achievement!

  612. Carlton Harris says:

    The pedal looks like a lot of possibilities

  613. Bill Richmond says:

    They sound great and look cool too. What more could you ask for?

  614. Justin Wilson says:

    I thought for a moment they were Chase Bliss knockoffs! What an interesting story and I love the artwork on these!

  615. N.R. Gray says:

    Inspiring to see people dedicated to opening the potential of sound in a format as modular, and accessible like pedals.

    Abracadabra Audio is going to give other pedal companies a run for their money.

  616. Nice designs too!

  617. A gnarly pedal. George Clinton and the rest of Funkadelic would be proud

  618. Andrew Estes says:

    I love the sound of a fuzz running into a choppy tremolo. Super cool to see a pedal that does both effects spectacularly.

  619. Couldn’t pronounce it right if my life depended on it but I still want it.

  620. What makes you think we don’t want to know about the synchronicity stuff? Sounds fun! Almost as fun as harmonically smashing, mixing, and chopping the ether sounds..

  621. gustavo says:

    Sound REALLY COOL! i want some ayahuasca in my life

  622. Dwight Swanner says:

    I would love to have this on my pedal board!!

  623. Tuval Pollack says:

    Probably the coolest looking pedal I’ve seen recently, can’t wait to hear more of it!

  624. RxLaMont says:

    WOW, look at the paint job on that pedal! Me likey.

  625. Ryan Raub says:

    Looks and sounds awesome!
    Can’t wait to win one!
    Keep it up, love the artwork.

  626. Daniel West says:

    I think it’s awesome Chase Bliss are able to branch out like this. When they first released the Warped Vinyl three years ago, it was just this weird and wonderful vibrato that took the scene by storm. Now they’re cranking out great designs every six months. Keep at it, Chase and co.

  627. Bruno Afonso says:

    Wow what a cool pedal in every way, really like the xamanic take from the people behind it, makes it even more special. Let’s see if the ayahuasca spirit would like me to have it

  628. These look and sound rad!

  629. Arik Lemon says:

    Help me find unity of being through the sounds of the medicine

  630. Beshmonger says:

    What a cool looking trippy pedal! Finding the “right” fuzz is so difficult, hopefully this one nails. Then I’ll report back saying how killer it is after I win!

  631. Billy Croce says:

    I can’t afford a real Peruvian Ayahuasca therapy experience, plus the military might not be fond of it, so this would be a much better alternative NAMASTE

  632. I’m aching for a good tremolo and this thing is a BEAST. Also the art is beautiful.

  633. Everything about this pedal is insane!

  634. With such a fascinating story I really would like to play it myself!

  635. sean ferkul says:

    Killer pedal

  636. That looks like a really interesting pedal, I hope I win

  637. I would love to win this pedal, looks like it has some great recording application!

  638. The art really gives these a special feel too, on top of the customized tweaks done to the insides. I would love to get my hands on them and see what they can do.

  639. “The Edge…There is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over. The others-the living-are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and Later. But the edge is still Out there.”

  640. Thomas DiSanto says:

    Great name for a pedal, and great tones to boot! Gotta have me one of these!

  641. Jason Collette says:

    Seems original and capable, can’t wait to try it out!!

  642. Steven Chell says:

    I found the idea behind this pedal and the demo really inspiring. Even without one to hand, I was still away to play and experiment with my own fuzz and tremelo in new ways. Thanks for making a pedal that’s able to inspire people without them ever having to even touch it.

  643. Justin Ringeisen says:

    This is a really cool and interesting pedal, very curious of all the tones that can be crafted.

  644. Tim White says:

    Interesting concept.

  645. Josh Gaon says:

    Need these pedals in my life so I can melt my own face with that fuzzzzz. Those tones are mean and waves. Top notch artwork as well!

  646. Jan Ilgner says:

    Just look at it…you don’t even have to turn it on… Just the look of it makes you and your pedal board sound better immediately.
    And then you hit that knob, and suddenly your whole life changes.

  647. Matt sanford says:

    Incredible. I’ve been super interested in this amazing collaboration piece since it first came out. What a cool confluence of artists to come together to make something so truly unique. This is such an exciting giveaway for the fourth birthday! I’m very into it. I’ve yet to actually try ayahuasca, but maybe this could be a step in the right direction…

  648. Lewis Watt says:

    I think it sounds like ayahuasca! That’d be paradoxical-sounding I imagine; simultaneously demented and beautiful.

    Sounds like the sort of magic you’d need an Amazonian shaman for.

    If I took the back off to look inside would a swarm of colourful butterflies fly out?

    Or would it be a swarm of hornets?

  649. Juanfer says:

    Amazing artwork!

  650. Bad Ass! Fantastic work on the color spectrum for this pedal! I would love to give this a shot and see what it could do for me! Keep up the great work folks! Thanks for a shot at this great piece of art and function! Have a great weekend all….Cheers!

  651. steuart liebig says:

  652. John Petteford says:

  660. Jesse Weiss says:

  661. Sean Bohannon says:


  662. Dirk Koltermann says:

    Beautyful…. i really would like to get my Hands on one of your Pedals ;)

  663. Holy heck, these pedals are gorgeous! I love the fact that you can use the fuzz and tremelo independantly. I’ve been looking for a tremelo pedal to use on an upcoming recording, and this one seems really cool for that, especially the harmonics-thingies-sounds.

    The fuzz sounds great too, a bit like the carcosa-fuzz i already have. I would really love to try this one.

    Oh, and congratulations to you guys on the 4 years :)

  664. Adam hoch says:

    These actually look interesting. I would not kick them out of bed in the morning.

  685. I always wanted to do the ritual but time, resources, commitments forbid me to do so. THIS fantastic AA pedal may very well be the gateway to higher consciousness. Thank you BGE, AA, and all the shamans involved in this project for bringing this awesome pedal to life!

  686. Ignacio Urrutia Gamper says:

    They look amazing!

  743. It is a very interesting pedal!

  744. NoiseBehr says:

    Imma weird guit-er but this pedal would make my previous sonic endeavors seem like 4/4 C-major pentatonics …

  745. This would sound amazing with my Moogerfooger Ring mod!

  746. After listening a bit closer … this would ad EXACTLY the right disposition to my guitar loops.

  747. Mackenzie Reese says:

    They’re beautiful <3

  748. I might be concerned that if I step on it the colors will run ….

  749. Yes please!

  750. Tyson Peisley says:

    Wow! This pedal is cool. The sample above is super creepy. Very dark. Love it.

  751. Kevin L. Gibbs says:

    This is definitely Aya-wierd-ca!! Gimme!

  752. Dave Vella says:

    I remember being really confused as to what this pedal was when I first saw the release video for it. Now I just wish I could get my hands on one

  753. Steven Sanborn says:

    A unique pedal, I see possibilities with ambiance material.

  754. Gary Plaus says:

    They certainly are cool looking boxes! Would love to give them a try.

  755. Kevin Sherwood says:

    Really curious to see how this pedal would fit into my signal chain. Fuzz, tremolo…..right up my alley!

  756. Kacper Żarna says:

    Trippy noises. Well done, my friends. And the artwork is killer. Would be interesting to loop a drum machine or some synths through that :)

  757. Jon Sim says:

    Oh wow! Really unique sound.

  758. wow this is so cool.

  759. Great knobs demo and artwork – excited to win this – have the perfect spot on the new pedalboard just awaiting its arrival. :)

  767. Nicolas Auvinet says:

    great artwork !

  768. Kobediah Miller says:


  769. Alex Rogan says:

    My 27th Birthday’s in July. I’m a fan of Ayahuasca for real in tea and if this pedal can replicate a little bit of that experience into my guitar playing then I’d be in heaven.

  777. is it turned on yet?

  778. Gimme!

  779. brett black eagle says:

    very interesting sounding pedal!

  780. Jeff Smith says:

  781. Eduardo Fernandes says:

    Just waiting to get my hands on the fuzz!

  782. Dr. Bentley Gubar says:

  784. Fran Prado says:

    Sounds great! The design is amazing!! I like specily The fuzz…. Its all that I need in my ac30

  785. Patrick Huerta says:

    O…M…G…!!! I have been looking forward to this one! Don Juan, teach me, por favor!

  786. Terry Vedas says:

    Fascinating backdrop on the evolution go this enigmatic and elusive guitar pedal/objet d’art. Like all things associated with Joel Korte (let alone the other high stakes players involved) this beauty is causing me major GAS! Keep missing out on the limited runs.

  787. What I find immense about a unique effect device is when it conjures up immediate images and feelings. It forces you to play differently, but retain the mentioned predecessors. Does the effect work you or so you work it? Regardless. I felt like I was on a boat in the middle of a storm and could barely see forward while the horizon was slowly becoming clearer. Such a fuzzy lo-fi ambience. The artwork is very noticeable which works well for function(visibility) and of course fashion. I can only imagine the near endless possibilities and soundscapes. Huge tip of the cap for turning my ears to something new.

  788. Eugene Kim says:

    I trust anything from Chase Bliss.

  789. Simon Weeks says:

    Great website – use it a lot to help with my pedal collection!

  790. I am super intrigued by this little guy!! I am a huge Fuzz afficianatto and have seen and played with a bunch of pedals and this has to be one of the more peculiar and exciting sounding boxes I’ve seen in a while! Nice read about it, love to hear the stories behind such cool stuff!!

  791. Sure would love to give one these a try

  792. Devin Applegate says:

    Whoa. Listening to (and looking at) these pedals is like slipping into a time-warp into the groovy 70’s while sippin’ on punch that was prepped by Timothy Leary’s witch-doctor. Awesome and trippy sounding!

  793. Richard Boyer says:

    I am a pedal freak with perpetual G.A.S. These pedals are amazing !!! Good luck everyone !!!!

  794. John Blough says:

    Must have!!

  795. Robert May says:

    Awesome! Love pedals like this that are infinitely tweakbly weird

  796. Wow, I really liked that pedal. I’ve been saving up for the Big Muff Pi, but now I may have to save a bit more.

  797. These are sweet!!!

  798. Thats funky ! Looks fun… send me one to demo for all my students !

  799. Dustin Boyd says:

    My daughter and I have already decided to get a Gravitas for our setup, but then we watched a video of the Ayahuasca……and man, it’s awesome. Evil twin. We’re still getting the Gravitas, but we agree that the Ayahuasca would be a welcome addition.

  800. Fernando says:

    Awesome tone and design

  801. Antonio Maggiore says:

    I’m really looking forward to this. Chase Bliss is on the cutting edge with their pedals and they will soon be the number one pedal company. My wife is Peruvian and I’ve been to the Amazon Jungle. I haven’t tried the Ayahuasca experience but this would be one great way to experience it!

  802. Ross Slater says:

    Sign me up. Like the art.

  803. Dalton Sjogren says:

    That’s some tasty distortion!!

  804. Hans Latuperissa says:

    What a unique sound to combine fuzz and tremolo in one compact pedal. Both the fuzz and tremolo are clearly articulated.

    And the paint job is really awesome. :)

  805. Cleamon Jones says:

    Great sound from this pedal and the artwork is top notch.

  806. fingers crossed!!

  807. Jason p says:

    Choppy chunky fuzzy goodness
    This thing sounds amazing

  808. Christian Bjørn Olsson says:

    That really looks like one heck of a cool pedal!
    I love the idea of far out sounding pedals with analog paths. This pedal sound is both wild and mesmerizing, I like the mix of fuzz and tremolo. Sporting a tremolo in a pedal like this sort of emphasizes the rough chopping effect that a fuzz pedal already has. And kudos to Hannah for making these pedals shine on the outside too!
    I love experimenting with weird sounds and it would be a blessing to win a pedal like one of these beauties..!

  809. I have to say that for me this is a pedalboard must.
    A touch of tremelo on a fuzz is always an upgrade
    and under the hands of these guys it goes some extra miles…
    I usually have a tremelo after my fuzz, but i cant reach those
    crunchy deep sounds.
    sounds inspiring!

  810. Anything by these Chase Bliss guys has been amazing. This sounds like it’ll be also. Can’t wait to try it in person for mysel.f

  811. Game changer in the world of Distortion

  812. Mattson says:

    I think I ate something weird

  813. Didier Nolin says:

    Very nice tone

  814. Adam Altman says:

    Sounds amazing.
    Looks similar to Chase Bliss.
    I wonder if they’re related…

  815. Kevin Franz says:

    Definitely trying to win it

  816. Greg Moore says:

    The Ayahuasca pedal sounds awesome in the video…it would sound VERY awesome with my guitars & amps

  817. Can’t wait to check these out!

  818. Chris Gibbons says:

    That’s one nasty tone right there.

  819. Neil Faulkner says:

    Love And Need the sound of the Ayahuasca! Would love to win one!

  820. Loving this.

    Great tremolo, great fuzz. Really interesting combo when you put them together (some insane sounds).

    Interested to know who has one of these on their rig, and what applications they use them for?


    Anyway – cheers for another thorough (and accurate) review.

    Keep fighting the good fight dudes!


  821. Bill Siepierski says:

    Gimme that fuzzy feeling.

  822. jeff ledoux says:

    um, yesssssss

  828. Never heard of these pedals but now I am super glad I have! Amazing :)

  829. That pedal art is killer.
    Thanks for the giveaways guys

  830. Nic Saxton says:

    This super sounding fuzz sounds better than a super fuzz!

  831. I’m not sure I am qualified to operate a pedal with that many knobs. That being said, I would still like to have one, possibly for no other reason than to generate new sounds and experiment. Or to start conversations.

  832. Kostas Kotsiras says:

    Cool pedal!!!

  833. Tremolo and fuzz…two great tastes that taste great together!

  834. Fuzz and trem! Yes, I’m a fuzz junky!

  835. Coll Thomson says:

    Looks and sounds awesome! Who wouldn’t want to win one?

  841. Daniel Coppess says:

    Quite impressive. Would love to add one to my rig.

  842. maxime labes says:

    nice work, i m in

  843. Chris Johnson says:

    I have been dying to get my hands on one of these since I first saw the Knobs video. I love Chase Bliss pedals & I also love weirdo noise boxes, so seeing the two unified in one project is amazing. here’s to hoping the benevolent pedal gods are on my side in this incredible giveaway!

  844. John Kendricken says:

  851. Jordan Riley says:

    I’ve owned the Chase Bliss Tonal Recall and Brothers pedals and they’re nothing short of incredible. I’m sure the Ayahuasca is every bit as amazing as Mr. Korte’s other crazy inventions. Just wish it was easier to get my hands on one!

  852. Adam Thomas says:

    Very cool!

  853. It sounds great!

  854. Denise Sitton says:

    Love the style of your products.

  855. Michael Sirois says:

    Love the stle of your products.

  859. Making “Let’s get weird” easy!

  860. Craig Williams says:

    Best looking pedals I’ve seen in a really long time. Love ’em.

  868. Simone Decolle says:

    Unaspected; beautiful; should be on every pedalboard

  869. Joshua Bails says:

    Interesting and unique accent piece. I would be quite interested to see how it reacted with chorus and wah. Very cool.

  870. Steve Comeau says:

    Lo-Fi to die for.

  871. Took a listen to your Ayahuasca. Best fuzz effect I have heard yet in 20 years of playing.

  872. Felipe Devicaro says:

    What a great pedal! Amazing sounds coming out of it!

  873. Keith McMillan says:

    This has got to be one of the more interesting current fuzz pedals on the market and definitely seems like it’d be fun to mess with some guitars and synths with.

  874. These are the sounds in my brain that I usually have to work too hard to get. Thank you for smashing all this signal wonkery into one box. Now I just have to get my hands on one.

  875. Adam Dolhanyk says:

    can a pedal bring world peace? this one will bring world destruction!

  876. Bertram Dhellemmes says:

    I love this pedal, I’ve been looking for something like this for ever – I wish they were easier to get!

  933. Dennis Gaines says:

    Such a crazy effect. I love it!

  957. roger wilkinson says:

    i guess the psychedelic paint jobs are cool and fun.( i am an old hippie.) However, i will buy a good effect even if it comes in a generic aluminum box.

    Very cool sounding pedal, with beautiful artwork. Would be fun to play around with.

  978. Looks good to me….

  981. Chad barkalow says:

    That sounds like a cool pedal combo, they look wicked too.

  983. Erle Townsend says:

    Wow, that’s outrageous. My wife would never understand.

  1000. Tyler Ott says:

    Oh man! This pedal has such a cool story. Awesome to see unique designs like this.

  1001. I got positively giddy when I saw you’re giving away three of these! I stumbled across the Ayahuasca pedal a month ago and was totally enamored. Almost purchased it off a gentleman locally.

    It’s gorgeous, and overwhelmingly impressive as Chase Bliss pedals are, and brutally trippy. Ayahuasca opens doors. I need this fuzzy tremolo goodness so bad.

    The artwork reminds me of the murals inside pulquerias of Mexico City. God, I love it.

  1002. Good lord, this thing is glorious. It’s pretty much the exact sound I’ve always wanted — like Os Mutantes playing “Bat Macumba” in a centrifuge. The perfect pedal.

  1003. Jay Meunier says:

    Looks very cool–I’d love to have one.

  1004. Frederick Pfeiffer says:

    Would love to try one!

  1013. Man those things look awesome, exactly what my board needs!!

  1014. Daniel Oxendine says:

    That demo video of the pedals sounded rad as frig! ld love to play around with these!

  1015. Jesse Eisenberg says:

    Is this gonna be like those ceremonies I’ve participated in? Sacred tobacco and road-man included or are those added accessories? Should I sweat lodge prior? So many questions!

  1016. Want one. NEED one.

  1017. The noise of art. Nice to look at, cool to hear…

  1018. Wesley Miller says:

    This is sweet

  1019. Sage Fuentes says:

    This pedal has been on my radar as just about one of the coolest fuzzy noise manglers in existence. I’ve never even seen onr in person and this saddens me as I would love to add this to my board and see what it does to my synth generation pedals.

  1020. Oscar Cardel says:

    As always, Chase Bliss Audio innovatingmore than any other pedal company, imo. High quality with adavanced functions. Just great.

    Heck yes. Love this pedal.

  1028. James Dress says:

    These pedals sound (and look) like nothing else out there. Nice to actually have a new take instead of the same old minor tweaks. I can imagine using these in very creative ways!

  1029. This pedal is simply HUGE!! It would be an awesome entry in my pedalboard! (See link below)

  1030. Some pedals are instruments in their own right, this is one.

    Very impressive.

  1031. Beautiful art on a groovy sounding pedal. Dig the fuzzy tremolo!

  1032. Roger W. says:

    If this pedal sounds half as good as it looks…WINNER!!

  1048. Stephen says:

    Cool story. There were some really talented people involved with this.

  1049. Joseph Bugg says:

    Killer stud pedals.

  1050. signed up for this contest and it turns out I was already subscribed or followed everything already.
    I got a chance to play a friends. this is the wildest fuzz I’ve ever heard.
    I can definitely see droning some repetitive thumping pattern over and over taking you to a realm where only blue light beings exist.

  1051. fabian torres says:

    I tried to quit this stuff

  1052. Very nice!

  1053. Mark Lafontaine says:

    I really need to add these pedals to my chain! Like really!

  1054. Very unique pedal. Love the artwork.

  1055. Nathan Schneider says:

    Rad! I had Joel mod my Gravitas as well to get a choppier square wave. It makes a killer tremolo that much better!

  1056. Claudio Gonzalez says:

    tremolo is f”@ing awesome!!

  1057. Chris Martin says:

    I want the pedal purely for the looks and design!

  1071. Dakota Gill says:

    I love seeing what these boutique builders come up with!

  1072. Eric Conyers says:

  1083. Daniel Dempsey says:

    I’m really happy Joel has worked on this kind of dual effect. Ive always admired that dual trem/fuzz tone, and with the tweakability of digital/analog goodness, I’d be able yo go from Zeppelins Down By The Seaside to the Smiths How Soon Is Now with a flick of the favorite switch. Thanks Joel, you’re gonna go down in music history.
