Death By Audio Absolute Destruction

Distortion fuzz /noise effects pedal - blown out distortion from gnarly fuzz to blooming, octave nastiness
MFR# ABSOLUTE DESTRUCTION

Product Description

The Death By Audio Absolute Destruction might be DBA's most insane pedal yet. Showing little to no respect for what instruments normally sound like, or even what many people want them to sound like, they pushed this thing until it sounded totally disgusting. Want a thick, gnarly fuzz sound? Sure, you can do that, and it'll sound really, really good. But you can also push the OVERLOAD slider into blooming, octave nastiness. Push it further and starve the circuit so that your signal starts to eat itself. Push it all the way and your sound will completely duck down before violently coming back to life.

CONTROLS:

  • Master Volume: Controls the output volume of the effect
  • Overload: Sets the ceiling at which the pedal overloads - all the way up the pedal doesn't overload at all and as the control slides to the left it pulverizes the sound more quickly
  • Gain: Sliding this control to the right increases gain and distortion

Horizontal sliders recessed close to the enclosure to protect them from being bent or accidentally moved while playing. Harnesses a power amplifier IC to generate its insane sound. Its Gain and Overload sliders interact to create a wide range of "unique" sounds in various positions. You choose how much to absolutely destroy your sound. The farther the Overload control is set to the left, the faster the effect slips into absolute destruction and gets totally disintegrated. Blow it out even harder and faster by slamming Gain and Overload opposite one another. Lower one or the other for smoother attack and release. Screaming octaves, thick fuzz, and the sound of your guitar reaching back from the depths of destruction are at your fingertips. Think of it as a psychotic compressor, or the sound your amp might make when literally on fire, or any number of things that your boring friends wouldn't call music.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
