Haunted Labs Witch Hammer overdrive

Haunted Labs has officially released the Witch Hammer, a transparent, asymmetrically clipped overdrive pedal with a surprisingly wide range.

The Witch Hammer can be deployed as a clean boost, edge-of-breakup OD, or a full-fledged medium-gain overdrive with lots of bite, responsiveness and snarl. Its extended low end range also means it’s capable of delivering a thick, hefty punch.

Three of the usual knobs—“Volume,” “Tone” and “Drive”—offer the typical overdrive controls. And the Witch Hammer cleans up well with your guitar’s “Volume” dial, too.

The Witch Hammer lists for $169. More information at hauntedlabs.com.
