Guitarist Davy Knowles has recently collaborated with Freekish Blues to create a signature pedal called the Chubb Up! Octave Fuzz pedal. The pedal features three control knobs: Fuz, Tone, and Volume, as well as a Thin/Fat switch, an octave on/off switch and a fuzz on/off switch. The Freekish Blues website states that the pedal was created with “Vintage Octave Fuzz/Fuzz pedals of the Late 60s / Early-Mid 70’s in mind.”
There are three versions of the pedal available: the standard Chubb Up!, a custom hand-painted Chubb Up!, and a custom hand-painted Chubb Up! autographed by Knowles. The video below features Knowles demoing the pedal. Based on the demo, it sounds like you can get some pretty interesting sounds from the pedal. I’m curious to hear how he uses it on his next album.
