Based on my Hazy Fuzz Experience - the first pedal I brought to market back in 2008 - and my discontinued dual footswitch Crazy Eight™, this new version encompasses everything I’ve learned about octavia fuzz in one awesome pedal. The Tortuga Custom Shop Crazy Eight™ is an out-of- control fuzz and octavia that will put a “haze” over your tone like no other. With a toggle switch for an octave-up octavia tone, the sonic combinations for fuzz insanity are almost limitless. The Tortuga Custom Shop Crazy Eight™ also works beautifully as a solo enhancer and booster to help you cut through the mix and really take people’s heads off.

All Tortuga Custom Shop Exclusive Models are only available directly from Tortuga Effects and are built periodically or upon request. If one is not currently available, please contact me to find out turnaround time.
