Fuzzrocious Pedals Introduces the Dark Driving v3 Pedal

Fuzzrocious Pedals Dark Driving v3 PedalFuzzrocious Pedals has revived its Dark Driving overdrive and distortion pedal with a third version. What started as a one-knob stompbox has grown into a more flexible tonal device that is still able to capture the original Dark Driving pedal’s sounds.

The new model has a clean boost after the traditional circuit to add volume and push your amp. The Light/Dark mod, which has been made into a toggle, has more dramatic brightness and warmth. A second switch lets you “select no diode clipping to open up your drive with less compression or add in BAT46 diodes to clip with more aggression and warmth,” Fuzzrocious explains.

The Fuzzrocious Dark Driving v3 is available now for $170. An option for a Germanium diode will be available for up to 20 orders. For a limited time, direct orders ship with a raspberry-toasted marshmallow candle from Uncle Ron’s Candle Shop and blueberry habanero hot sauce from Complete Goner Sauce.

Runs at 9-12V – opens up a little more at 12V
