Rotten Apple Fuzz

With just a whiff of op-amp fuzz left after mutilating this muff, you’re left with something that’s dreamy in bass and gain range.  What’s needed for that rotten-to-the-core sound is a thick dose of bass, gain for days, and a perfectly scooped midrange that recalls the 1990s on speed dial.

The Gain of the Rotten Apple has an amazing range on tap, AND it is sensitive to your guitar and strumming.  So even though it pumps and smashes through your speaker cab, you can roll your guitar back to float like a butterfly.  The Tone Control gives you everything from submerged stoner-rock sludge to highs that claw through your speakers.

Did you know we did extensive testing of this pedal on my Eric Clapton Strat with Lace Sensors?  Yeah, we knew we wanted to nail a very specific tone.  Dialed it!
Did you know we took all we learned from our Dark Side fuzz and made this one even less noisy while increasing the gain dramatically? We did.
Did you know that despite all the rage, rats in Chicago seem to have no natural enemy? Not even daylight. (Field Note: Robert Keeley, on one of his visits to Hotel Cass at the corner of Wabash and Erie.)

Avail Yourself to Adore This

But aren’t V4s supposed to sound harsh?!?  Well, yeah, but we rewrote every page of the book.  The story doesn’t end with rebuilding a circuit, it ends with the filtering.  Why do certain sythns sound so amazing even though they are just generators?  The filtering.  We nailed it.  Listen to the demo of the Rotten Apple, thick and dreamy.  Fits perfectly in your 90s mix.  Cuddle your guitar and this stompbox, you little cherub, and rock out.

Is This Just an Artist Pedal? Not at All.

The Rotten Apple Is Our Love of Fuzz.


Awesome music shop! Very clean, not crowded. Lots of guitars for everyone's musical taste. The staff is super nice, and very informative. I can't say enough good things about Picker's Alley! Thank you so much for serving Southwestern Ontario with such awesome service!!

Great music store. Messaged them about a sale item and they put the last one aside for me until I could get there to purchase.

Tony is by far the best customer service rep around, He knows his stuff, and is always willing to go above and beyond, I only go to pickers alley, for all my musical needs!!

Ryan Mathews

Excellent service, in one word they know what they are doing just tell them your requirement and budget. Don't worry about price if you see it online it's the same price here in offline too. Best thing is the owner's humour and focus on your requirement more than the sales of the store.

Very very happy and satisfied and will be back for additional requirements.

What a great selection of guitars and amps. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. If they don't have what you need chances are they can source it for you. Prices are as competitive as big box music stores so there is no need to look elsewhere. I will continue to support local when I can.
