The Shear Revival pedal is the product of a unique collaboration between Zachary West - founder of the Asbury Park, New Jersey-based grooming products brand of the same name - and Baltimore Sonic Research Institute. The pedal offers a complex range of tones from mild overdrive to untamed, heavily compressed fuzz that is sure to please the discerning musician looking for unique gear to inspire new noise.
The pitch was simple - Zachary was updating the branding for Shear Revival and wanted to include a unique effect pedal as part of the project. The initial circuit options were open ended, but Zachary’s affinity for the Harmonic Percolator circuit made it an obvious choice to build on. The Harmonic Percolator has developed a cult following in the last decade with many builders large and small offering their own take on the sound. Zachary wanted one on the wilder end of the spectrum. To achieve this, Baltimore Sonic Research Institute developed a preamp for the front end of the core circuit and refined the filtering and bias throughout to produce a stomp box capable of traditional Harmonic Percolator tones and wildly chaotic fuzz sounds traditionally achieved by stacking multiple pedals together. While the controls are simple, their range offers myriad tones for players to find their own unique voice.
The Shear Revival pedal, like Shear Revival grooming products, is hand-crafted in small batches to ensure high quality for the discerning player. It features hand-selected vintage transistors and true bypass switching, and is finished with Shear Revival’s signature graphics in lustrous gold plating.
