    The purpose of this thread is to identify the best and most Stoner pedals in all the land. I'll start with the Hovercraft Ionostrofear Fuzz and the Crazy Tube Circuits Planet B Bass overdrive. Both are awesome

    Attached Files:

  2. Anything Abominable Effects, Damnation Audio, or Dunwich Effects are pretty damn doomy

    I built a clone of the Black Sheep that I would put in the Stoner category. Best sounds when playing down tuned:

    Also built a clone of the Black Acid that can be Stoner chunky (bass at 0:33 seconds):

    The pedals with the doomiest names or graphics are not necessarily the best.

    For fuzz, TAFM, FEA Photon II, W&C Tall Font Russian.

    I'm also really digging the Alpha side of the Alpha Omega as a doomy tube amp sim right now.

    Plus phaser and filter/wah is a must. Small Stone, Bad Stone, Phase 90 are all good. Too many to choose from in the filter category!

    What always comes to my mind with stoner pedals and builders

    Black Arts Toneworks
    Old EXH green Russians
    Bass wah
    I forgot Idiotbox!!! He makes some awesome doomy stuff

    I don't really mean to say these builders are stoners. But all the stuff they build seems to have that feeling or aesthetic that gives off that stoner and doom vibe.

    The Bluebeard is the best answer for this.

    It's the fuzz that launched 1000 doom bands.

    As phasers go I really want to try an OxVibe.

    Not really working that well on bass unfortunately, but for guitar....


    Running a Boss MT-2 (Metal Zone) into a EHX Tube Zipper (just used as fuzz)!

    Not exactly stoner, but you can get an idea of how it sounds with guitar here:

    Chord work:

    Solo (2:59-3:53):

    Doom hack: Fuzzrocious Demon -> Way Huge Swollen Pickle = heavy.

    Swollen Pickle -> Dunwich ODB works well too, preferably with lots of volts going into the ODB.

    Stoner rock - Wikipedia my fav are Sleep and Earth. I know lots of Melvins fans though. Needs a sustaining fuzz that retains low end, for that I use ssbs Mini into TC Hypergravity compressor set with a medium attack into Dwarfcraft Paralooper with a TAFM in 1 loop, low boosted dry mix at noon fuzz at 10, then a little Dark Cathedral reverb from a HOF mini.
