The Glut Cheeks by Poison Noises is a modded Tone Bender Fuzz that delivers velcro goodness.

Rich, chewy and splattery velcro fuzz is what my heart desires. And the Glut Cheeks fulfills this desire completely.

As always, the knob labels tend to be rather cryptic. I've "translated" them in the demo widget above.

From what I can hear when playing the pedal, Even More (the EQ section) is a high-pass filter. Turning it counter clockwise removes bass frequencies.

Devour switches between 2 and 3 transistor configurations. It sounds to me like the "up" is 2 transistors (more open, less compressed, less gain) and "down" is 3 transistors.

Stuff is translated by Poison Noises as a "thickness" control. I believe this controls how much bass frequencies enter pedal. It subtly changes the bass response in interaction with the gain control.

Choke is the magic knob for me. It can turn the Glut Cheeks from an open, mid-gain overdrive to a ripping velcro fuzz, all at the same gain level.

If you don't wanna spent a fortune on vintage Tone Benders, and you want a feature-packed, versatile and reliable pedal, check out the Glut Cheeks.

Recording Notes


  • Fidelity Guitars Stellarosa Lite II with Lollar Firebird pickups (bridge pickup)
  • Glut Cheeks
  • Strymon Iridium (chime)

Overdubs (heavy section)

  • Gretsch Electromatic with Blacktop Filtertrons (double tracked, hard-panned, bridge one side, neck on the other)
  • 1 take for each panning side with the Glut Cheeks
  • 1 take for each panning side with the Bondi Effects Sick As Overdrive to add some chime and clarity

Overdubs ("verse" section)



  • GarageBand Drummer Max (punk rock) on the East Bay kit
  • Full kit treated with the stock GarageBand RAT-style pedal plugin

The whole mix was "mastered" with exciter, limiter and mild compression in the DAW.
