Dwarfcraft Devices Twin Stags Double Tremolo Review

We present to you the Dwarfcraft Twin Stags Double Tremolo pedal. This blood red stag is a rare beast, an ambitious pedal that offers two discreet tremolo effects, dual cv inputs & LFO outputs for integration with modular systems, and two expression inputs. The features alone are enough to whet the appetite, but how does it sound and function in use? Spoiler alert: top-notch, and the Twin Stags feels like an instrument among pedals.

Dwarfcraft seems to have a brilliant penchant and strength for building imaginative fuzz pedals, crazy pitch shifters, and modular inspired pedals. Others in that latter group include the Happiness multi-mode filter pedal and ARF (Attack, Release, Filter). I adore filter pedals, especially ones that offer modular integration, and those are two I’m also eager to try soon.

From Dwarfcraft I sense roots and appreciation for both classic to heavy electric guitar tones along with wild and fun sound exploration. There’s an integrity and strong vision at Dwarfcraft. Their pedals have a cool indy DIY esthetic and relay integrity in quality materials and craft. They offer a limited lifetime warranty, free repairs due to manufacturing defects, and a reasonable bench rate for mess ups that are your own “damn fault”.

I approached the Twin Stags with enthusiasm on its promising sound exploration and modular integration and also in part due to the reputation of this esteemed builder. But what happens when you plug in and play a pedal is most important. Here’s a feature overview before we get to my full review.

Features

The Twin Stags features two discreet tremolos. Each has its own:

  • Rate, Shape (saw to ramp), and Depth knobs (-/+, mid position = off)
  • 1/8” CV inputs to control the Twin Stags tremolo effects, bypassing the knobs
  • 1/8” LFO outputs before the Depth knob (attenuator) is applied>
  • 1/4” Expression inputs to control the LFO rates
  • LED rate indicator

Twin Stags singular features:

  • 2MOD1 switch that when activated (up) Tremolo 2 modulates Tremolo 1. When the switch is down, Tremolo 1 and 2 are both discreet tremolos again.
  • 1/4” mono input and output audio
  • Bypass footswitch with an LED light to indicate when the pedal is active
  • 9v power which upconverts to 18v

Impressions on Build

The dark red metal casing and mirrored stag line art are lovely and cool. The knobs have a good turn feel to them; they’re not too loose, so you can control more evolving changes, but also not too stiff, so you can make fast changes as desired. This pedal is fairly tall compared to other pedals, an extra convenience for having a raised platform on your back row of pedals, but it would make pedals behind it harder to step on, a non-issue with clever board placement on on a surface modular setup. The narrower knobs make it seem taller yet. It will just fit into my Pedaltrain board, and the bag zips snugly closed. Although it can fit into a Pedaltrain board and bag, I probably wouldn’t keep it in one. I would want to give it enough floor or table area to take advantage of all the wired modular integration that’s possible with it.

Sound & Performance:

I integrated the Twin Stags with a modular Eurorack system, feeding it a simple VCO sine wave across a range of frequencies with a long gated decay and no other effects except for the Twin Stag.

Tremolo 1 and 2, each taken alone, in low to medium rates can serve classic tremolo expectations. Guitar players could set it and forget it basic tremolo sounds, but that’s not really the point of this pedal. It’s meant to be experimented with and tweaked, and things get extra fun when using Tremolo 1 and 2 in tandem.

Tremolo 1 is the faster of the two. All the way to the left, there are about 4 seconds between each cycle. In medium rate ranges and while moving the rate knob live, I achieved an effect that was sweet and expressive, something akin to the vibrato of a violin player at moments. At higher rates where it starts to self-oscillate, it’s a machine that takes off, asserting itself into the mix with its own tone and harmonics. This is delightful wow territory to discover as the higher rates are like adding another dirty synth, creating an industrial vibe as grime and pseudo-ring modulation are added to the mix.

Tremolo 2 can go slow in ominous 30 seconds cycles, which is great for evolving soundscapes. In medium to fast rates and working with Tremolo 1, it’s sort of a kick drum here, which brings me to one of the Twin Stags’ unique strengths of creating interesting rhythmic effects. At faster rates, when the Shape and Depth knobs of Tremolo 2 are the same direction, far left or right, the sound is like a metallic clang or bouncing ball. When the Shape and Depth knobs are in opposite direction of each other, there’s a reverse quality like fluttering wings. On a long decay at slow and moderate rates, the Twin Stags can sound like a delay.

The Shape knobs control the triangle core LFOs which move from ramp to saws and points between. The Shape knobs at the extreme left or right add more of a synth bite to the mix. At slow and medium rates the differences can seem to less noticeably affect the vibe. At higher rates, you can almost see the sound go frenetic like an electric cactus. I like that this pedal can be subtle and then veer into high energy and harshness.

The Depth knobs at 12 o’clock shut off a given Tremolo effect; Turning Depth o the left increases the negative depth and to the right increases the positive depth. I set both Depth knobs to 12 o’clock to start, and then slowly brought in one Depth knob at a time which helped me hear how the tremolos interact with the sound separately and how they interact with each other. It’s a good idea to explore the pedal like this to learn how the Depth knobs affect the sound.

The Bypass switch is solid. Even when the Twin Stags is creating wild high energy sounds, the Bypass switch is smooth, adding no loud pops or clicks to the signal path.

2MOD1 switch: In the down position, the Tremolos are discreet and don’t interact. In the up position, Tremolo 2 modulates Tremolo 1. With lower and medium rates, this effect smooths out the Twin Stags’ rhythmic effect. With Tremolo 1 going faster in the self-oscillation range, Tremolo 2’s rising & falling wave shapes are pronounced, creating stretching and constricting siren passages.

CV inputs 1 & 2 completely control the given Tremolo, bypassing the knob controls. This is a great feature for those seeking to integrate and control the Twin Stags with a modular system. Occasionally, a given LFO shape and rate would create more “clicking” than desired. I don’t see this as an issue with the Twin Stags, but rather the nature of the LFO shapes. Most of the time, it worked really well, so it’s just a matter of getting familiar ahead of time with what’s going to work well. Having the CV inputs feature definitely adds interest and value to this pedal for modular enthusiasts.

I feel like there are never enough LFOs to modulate all the possibilities, so it’s great to have the Twin Stag 2 LFO outputs to augment a modular system. The Rate, Shape, and Depth all work the same, except that with the Depth knob, the sound won’t cut out at 12 o’clock. Feeding LFO 2 at the slowest setting into the pitch of an oscillator really gives a sense of the range and how slow this LFO can go. LFO 1 at higher rate settings into a pitch created some enticing animalistic purrs to fuzzy motors. Using the Twin Stag’s LFOs to control other modular systems and features adds to the layers of what makes the Twins Stags versatile and playable.

Expression Inputs 1 & 2 modulate the Rate of each respective Tremolo. In testing with an Expression LFO wave generator, the wave shape cycles would come in and out, creating steady pulses with expressive blooms based on wherever the rate knob was set. The Expression inputs work with current knob settings, as opposed to the CV inputs bypassing the knobs. Using the Expression inputs and the Rate knobs together, I was able to create some intricate phrasing and calligraphy-like flourishes.

The Twin Stags contributes a gorgeous analog richness and dark bent. If I was making soundtracks for paranormal or artful horror movies or games, this would be one of my go-to effects. In a short period of time, I would place the Twin Stags among my favorite effects pedals, particularly due to its unique tremolo effects and innovative modular capabilities. It makes sense that I would fall for this pedal as it has both sound and integration possibilities that exalt experimental artistry.

The Dwarfcraft Devices Twin Stags can serve classic tremolo needs for guitarists while adding remarkable and versatile possibilities for sound explorers and musicians who want to have a pedal that can integrate with modular gear. I experienced a lot of delightfully creative zones while playing the Twin Stags, and I feel like I’ve only scratched the surface. There’s a vast emotive and animated territory to explore with it. It sparked my imagination many times in how cinematic it is. I can imagine using it for improvised experimental sets, as well as more intentional sound sculpting, and using it to generate a plethora of unique samples to further process or sequence. I would use it on any synth or guitar and possibly consider it for drum machines as well.

That concludes our Dwarfcraft Devices Twin Stags review. Thanks for reading.

Dwarfcraft Devices Necromancer Review – Best “Super Fuzz” Pedal?

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Necromancer-Review-Best-Super-Fuzz-Pedal-01
You may have heard that the infamous Silver Rose dual fuzz pedal was resurrected as the Dwarfcraft Silver Rose V2, a most righteous pedal. Well, it’s more like an unholy cauldron that spews forth abominable fuzz. One side of the Silver Rose V2 featured a variation of Dwarfcraft’s own Eau Claire Thunder, a Muff-ish fuzz pushed to monstrous extremes. The other side of the pedal featured an all-new “Super Fuzz” inspired dirt flavor. But the wizardry within the new Super Fuzz circuit couldn’t be contained as a mere sideshow within another pedal; thus, the Dwarfcraft Devices Necromancer was unleashed upon the world to help guitarists summon forth the most gnarly and evil riffage ever devised. For this review I’ll dare to wield this necronomical fuzz and share with you a taste of its dark and twisted power.

Features:

Contains the Silver Rose V2’s Super Fuzz inspired circuit and EQ section with additional Mids control knob

Control knobs for Volume, Bias, Gain, Treble, Mids, & Bass

Mids knob is voiced to the deepest frequency dip created by flipping the Mids switch down

Mids switch selects between a classic fuzz sound with a rich mid-range presence and a heavily mid-scooped sound with more bass and treble

EQ switch bypasses the Treble, Mids, & Bass control knobs.

True Bypass

Powered by 9VDC power adapter

Silver Rose V2 vs Necromancer

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Necromancer-Review-Best-Super-Fuzz-Pedal-02

Let’s start by comparing this pedal to the Silver Rose V2’s Super Fuzz section. Basically, the Necromancer nails those sounds in all their explosive glory, making it a killer standalone pedal for guitarists or bassists who just want those tones. There are 2 noteworthy performance differences that are in favor of the Necromancer. Expanding on the SRV2’s 2-band EQ section, the Necromancer’s new Mids knob lets you contour even deeper (and heavier!) mid-scooped tones or add even more classic sounding mid-range presence. Extra tonal range is a big plus. Also, due to the extreme nature of the Silver Rose V2’s fusion of 2 separate fuzz circuits, it has a more present noise floor while the Necromancer remains a bit more quiet and controlled, despite its capacity for extreme fuzz carnage. In summary, the Silver Rose V2 offers more fuzz distortion colors thanks to its blending of 2 distinct circuits (and has a Clean blend knob and Clean Output jack); the Necromancer gives you just the excellent Super Fuzz tones with greater EQ flexibility and quieter operation. That’ll be enough for some of you to know if the Necromancer is the right fuzz pedal for you.

If you’re less familiar with the Silver Rose V2’s Super Fuzz section, let’s talk a bit more about what the Necromancer is all about. When I use words like “explosive” and “extreme” to describe its character, this is in reference to a certain unstable yet paradoxically focused sound the pedal has. The Necromancer adds immensity to low-end riffage, a thickness and girth that could also be described as tectonic. Certain classic fuzz flavors can be achieved with lower Gain settings, but pushing the Gain upwards towards as high as 3 o’clock unleashes the devastating tones that this pedal will be most highly regarded for. While Super Fuzz flavored circuits can rip up guitar chords, there’s a refined nature in Dwarfcraft’s interpretation of this classic style of fuzz that rewards players with a more controlled form of fuzz chaos.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Necromancer-Review-Best-Super-Fuzz-Pedal-03Aside from the Gain knob, the Necromancer has 3 different methods for adjusting the tonality of its fuzz: the Bias knob, Mids switch, and switchable 3-band EQ section. I want to talk about these aspects at once as they’re integral to understanding how to make the most of this particular fuzz pedal – or you can always just turn knobs till it sounds good. The Bias knob adjusts the voltage to a part of of the circuit that attenuates the degree of focus and chaos, tightening up or loosening the feel of the fuzz. Some areas of the Bias sweep are noisier than others, but this won’t really be an issue when you’re riffing out. The Mids switch selects between a mid-focused tone and a bass and treble heavy sound with an aggressive mid-cut. Flipping the EQ switch activates a 3-band EQ (with the Mids knob being centered at the same frequency as the Mids switch’s cut). The EQ section can be used with the Mids switch in either position, letting your refine the mid-focused or mid-cut sound. Dwarfcraft is proud of offering “too much” treble & bass if you need it, and the dramatic range of EQing possibilities actually contribute greatly to this pedal’s versatility.

A few quick pointers… try setting the Bias at minimum with the Mids switch set to mid-cut, crank the Gain, and enjoy the searing, molten lava fuzz distortion that ensues. Then flip the Mids switch to a more mid-focused tone and roll the Bias up towards 10-11 o’clock. Notice that killer “splatty” character that doesn’t fully rip your guitar to pieces. Sounds so good. Also, on that second setting, try selecting your guitar’s neck pickup for some killer octave up fuzz. Then try some power chords (just roots & 5ths) lower on the neck for some raucous riffing. So nasty. So rad. I usually leave the EQ on at all times; it’s always great for tweaking the pedal to your instrument and amp. Also, while another one of my favorite Super Fuzz flavored pedals, the SolidGoldFX Formula 76, is particular well-suited to single-coils (to my ears anyway), I rather enjoy the Necromancer with single-soils & humbuckers, again edging this pedal towards a bigger win in the versatility department.

I can’t really gripe about much here. The lower noise floor compared to the SRV2 edges it out as my preferred pedal of the two. My only minor complaint is that I wish the input & output jacks were top-mounted, hardly an issue to anyone except those of us with super tight pedalboards. Just understand what type of fuzz you’re getting into with this one as this pedal is a gnarly beast. Dwarfcraft rocked it hard with this one.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Necromancer-Review-Best-Super-Fuzz-Pedal-04

Overall-Rating-5.0

The Dwarfcraft Devices Necromancer is a nefarious & tonally versatile Super Fuzz style pedal that packs enough earthshaking, seismic fuzz to break the richter scale. Seriously, it’s heavy and it’s dirty. Assuming you like breaking things, musically speaking, you’ll probably dig this ripper of a pedal. As an alternative to Dwarfcraft’s monstrous Silver Rose V2, the Necromancer takes half of the SRV2’s awesomeness and lets you further tweak that sound to perfection thanks to its 3-band EQ. Of the fuzz pedals I’ve played in 2016, the Necromancer is most deserving of attention for those with a taste for aggressive and versatile fuzz pedals.

Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 Review – Best Dual Fuzz Pedal?

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-01

The Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 is the most straight-up rock ‘n roll fuzz pedal I’ve ever played. Don’t bother reading my review. Go buy it.

Okay, maybe you should know a little more about it first. Well, it’s 2 awesome fuzz pedals in 1. You can play through them both at the same time in parallel, and if you do, epicness ensues. Is that enough for you?

Fine, fine, I’ll do this thing right. Here goes…

The Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 has a long and complicated history. None of it really matters, but here’s the short version anyway…

 

The Tale of the Silver Rose: A Effected Fairytale

Once upon a time… a boutique company made a pedal called the Silver Rose. Legend has it that this pedal was sort of a collaboration with Billy Corgan. (You know, the dude from The Smashing Pumpkins who’s really into fuzz pedals?) Turns out he wasn’t really feeling the original Silver Rose and didn’t want to be associated with it (or something like that). Then later that pedal company that made the Silver Rose sort of went out of business. (Wow, this story’s kind of a bummer, huh? Hang in there! The good parts are coming up!)

Then Dwarfcraft Devices, the heroes of this tale, appeared and were all like, “Hey, this company’s pedals are awesome! Let’s buy the brand, keep making them, and let rock reign supreme!” (They probably didn’t say anything like this, but you get the idea.) So they bought the brand, made the things, and then they were like, “Hey, let’s make something new and awesome, to like, revitalize the brand and stuff. Hail rock ‘n roll!” (Again, this part may have happened a little differently.) Anyway, I’m guessing they thought the Silver Rose was a cool idea and decided to make it better. So they did. And all was good.

The En…
Oh wait, I forgot something.

Dwarfcraft Devices originally branded it as the Devi Ever FX Silver Rose V2, but then they were like, “Nevermind, this pedal is a 100% original design and uses absolutely no part of the original brand’s Silver Rose pedal. Dwarfcraft, it is!” (…or something like that.) Anyway, I think that’s close enough. At least those are the most important bits.

The End. For Serious.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-02

The Silver Rose Returns

There are a few things to be said about what the Silver Rose was and what it is now. The original idea was to combine 2 epic fuzz pedals, a “Big Muff” style fuzz and a “Super Fuzz” variation, into one beautiful behemoth of a pedal that would provide guitarists/bassists near endless means to morph and merge those sounds. It was a truly inspired undertaking. Dwarfcraft Devices didn’t have schematics for the original pedal, so they decided to revamp the whole concept. The only things carried over from the original Silver Rose are the idea and the name. The rest is pure sonic inspiration.

EC FUZZ

The left side of the Silver Rose V2, the “EC FUZZ” section, is a modified version of Dwarfcraft’s own Eau Claire Thunder, a Muff-style fuzz pedal known for its raging fuzz chaos. The EC FUZZ has familiar Volume, Tone, & Gain knobs, a Tone switch for removing the Tone knob from the circuit, and a Warp switch for kicking up the insanity.

SUPER

On the right side of the pedal is the “SUPER” section which draws inspiration from the old “Super Fuzz” style pedals from decades past. Dwarfcraft had a look at some old schematic and then just ran with it, doing their own thing over here. This side gives you knobs for Volume, Bias, & Gain as well as a Mids switch for scooping the mids and increasing the bass.

Both fuzzes are routed into a master EQ section. There’s an EQ switch which activates Treble & Bass knobs, providing +/-10dB of boost or cut. A Clean knob controls dry level, letting you blend in your clean signal. You can also use the Clean Out to route your dry signal to another amp or effects chain.

Basically, what you really have here is the ultimate Dwarfcraft Devices fuzz pedal that nods to the original Silver Rose in concept, but totally reinterprets the idea. Make sense? Good. Let’s move on. Here’s a quick feature rundown.

Features:

  • Two fuzzes in one with ultimate control
  • Separate switchable active EQ provides 10dB of boost or cut
  • Clean blend knob and Clean Out for parallel processing
  • True Bypass
  • Powered by 9VDC power adapter (35mA).

Sound & Performance:

Where do I begin? The Silver Rose V2 is rock ‘n roll in a box. From the moment you plug it in press Engage, an aural assault of fuzz ensues. It doesn’t care if your ears bleed. It doesn’t care if that ska band rehearsing next door can’t stand the noise you’re making. It doesn’t care if you blow your freakin’ speakers (but you might, so watch those volume levels!). For some, It’s a medicine best served in small doses until you learn your tolerance. For others, the Silver Rose V2 is your new fuzz mistress. Those who can’t hang with her cat ‘o nine tails to the jewels, maybe this pedal just ain’t for you. But let’s start one thing at a time and see what this pedal is all about..

Before you just kick this thing on and blast your amp into fuzzy oblivion, roll down both Volume knobs and the Clean knob. From there, activating the pedal will save your speakers (this thing can get loud!) until you get a feel for the intricacies of dialing it in.

SUPER

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-03Raising up the Volume on the Super side brings in a decidedly vintage flavor of fuzz. On the left side of the Bias spectrum the fuzz is more stable and articulate. Bringing the Bias to the right makes things more sputtery with full clockwise being great for 8-bit fuzz sounds. The key to dialing in those quirky, semi-gated sounding fuzz effects is to not completely max the Gain but push it towards the 3 o’clock area. But you can also crank it up and dial back your guitar’s volume knob for similar effect.

For more versatility the Mids switch completely inverts the frequency emphasis of the SUPER side. Suddenly, your mids are sucked out and the top and bottom seem to have greater impact. This is worth exploring throughout the range of Gain and Bias settings. Whether going for thick slabs of chordal riffage or synthy fuzz single notes, try the Mids switch in both positions to see what works for you.

EC FUZZ

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-04Once you get an awesome sound from the SUPER section, cut down its Volume and raise the Volume on the EC FUZZ side. You’re now in a whole parallel universe of fuzz freedom. The 3 knob setup should be familiar to anyone who’s ever played a “Big Muff” style pedal before. One handy feature is the Tone switch. I personally love the option of being able to remove the Tone knob entirely on a Muff-style fuzz. This gives you a full frequency wall of fuzz that just… kills! While that’s a monstrous feature to have in its own right, the Tone knob is voiced exceptionally well in that it doesn’t excessively cut your low-end when emphasizing the higher frequencies. This will entice you to just leave the Tone knob in the circuit most of the time.

The Warp switch manages to make the EC FUZZ a bit more intense without spiraling into oscillating feedback territory. You can get extreme fuzz grind while maintaining control. Even with Warp on and both Gain knobs maxed, the Silver Rose V2 is incredibly playable in its own raunchy way. Very nice.

Once you dial in a sound you like on both sides, bring up both Volume controls to make worlds collide. This is where the magic happens. Each side of the pedal is unique and awesome, but it’s all about the alchemical marriage of the Silver Rose V2’s yin and yang. While it’s fun to just randomly experiment with different sounds, you’ll start to recognize how to apply each fuzz to greater effect. For example, cut the Mids on the SUPER side and dial in the Tone of the EC FUZZ to fill in the empty space. Or combine a treble or bass heavy EC FUZZ sound with a mid-focused SUPER sound. Don’t forget about bringing in your dry signal via the Clean knob if you want a little extra clarity. Bassists might find that more useful for maintaining some low-end definition.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-05The EQ section is particularly useful for putting the final touches on your fuzz creation/abomination. If there’s a little too much action happening on the high or low side of the spectrum, engage that EQ switch and tweak the Treble & Bass to taste. These knobs can be useful even if you’re just using one side of the pedal. Say the SUPER’s Mids switch scoop is too dramatic for you, cut on the EQ and roll down the Treble & Bass while boosting Volume for a less scooped sound. Or when using the EC FUZZ with a bright Tone setting, boost the Bass EQ for a more prominent low-end as well. Lots of potential here.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-06The Clean Out could be useful in some situations. You could send your clean signal to yet another fuzz pedal if you’re crazy enough. Or you can process your guitar with an entirely separate signal chain altogether. This won’t be an essential feature for most users, but I’m sure some creative effect junkies out there will find some use for it. Also, it’s important to emphasize that even if you’re not using the Clean Out, the Clean knob still lets you blend your clean signal in with your fuzz.

The Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 packs in a lot of awesome. The only things to nag about are the signal noise and the foot-switch being so close to the clean knob. (Top-mounted input/output jacks would have been nice, too, but might have messed with the symmetrical knob placement.) Even with the 2 Volume knobs rolled down, you’ll always hear a higher than usual level of signal noise from this pedal. The good news is that this will most likely be a non-issue in a loud band setting. When you engage the Silver Rose V2 you’ll most likely be pummeling your audience with a wall of fuzz that will drown out all background noise. I stopped noticing it after a while. Considering this pedal will probably find most use among guitarists looking for extreme distortion and fuzz sounds, the noise floor won’t matter when you’re strumming non-stop through your setlist.

But if your stage performance is as high-energy as the sounds from this pedal, you might want to apply a little restraint and carefully step on the Engage foot-switch to avoid moving the Clean knob with your foot. If you put the Silver Rose V2 in an effects switcher, this is a non-issue. For me, I’d rather see Dwarfcraft have done without the Clean knob & Clean Out and have added a 2nd foot-switch with a Gate function. (Bassists are shaking their fists as some of them will find the Clean function essential to retain definition of their low-end. My bad, y’all.) Or even with the Clean/Clean Out functions, an extra foot-switch could have been placed on the left side to accommodate a Gate function (while adding to the symmetry). But a gate may have been too difficult or costly implement. There’s already a lot going on. Fortunately, the sounds you can get from this pedal are so awesome that you’ll most likely be forgiving of those minor issues. After all, rock ‘n roll is meant to be loud and noisy, right? And if the noise bothers you that much, stick the Silver Rose V2 in a noise gate’s loop, and you’ll be fine. (It works wonders; I tried it.)

The Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 is a beautiful beast of a guitar pedal and one of my new favorite fuzzes. (If it’s a little too noisy for you or you want some a little smaller and compact, check the Dwarfcraft Devices Necromancer which puts the Super side of the SRV2 in its own pedal with dedicated Mids knob.) Let’s see the final result.

Dwarfcraft-Devices-Silver-Rose-V2-Best-Dual-Fuzz-Pedal-07

Overall-Rating-4.5

The Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2 offers a world of fuzz shaping possibilities through combining its two classic-inspired fuzz sections. This pedal has attitude and energy to spare and will likely be a new source of inspiration to the fuzz warriors who add this weapon to their pedal arsenal. It’s not too complicated to use once you master the 2 fuzz sections, or maybe it’s submitting yourself to the Silver Rose V2 that rewards you with its fuzz domination. The bottom line is this pedal rocks hard and is super fun to play. Through all that had to happen for this pedal to arrive, the Silver Rose V2 is here, and Dwarfcraft Devices did a remarkable job at capturing all the best qualities of its various sources of inspiration. Now go buy it.

That concludes our Dwarfcraft Devices Silver Rose V2. Thanks for reading.
