Forget everything you learned about tone and throw it out the window. The Fairfield Circuitry Unpleasant Surprise barrages you with heavy gated heart pounding fuzz! Stomp down and bask in the enormity of every riff as it blasts through your amp. This pedal is like a mad science experiment gone oh so right.

From Fairfield:
Reminisce about the time you got your shoulder caught in the reciprocating saw while this unit destroys your slick jazz lines.

The fruit of an oddball circuit, hanging there awkwardly by some parasitic effect. Tweaked, bended
and shoe-horned to optimize it’s stench, it’s unpleasance. The time has come to bury all dynamics. Strangely, it feels very natural.

As The Unpleasant Surprise turns your playing style upside down, you’ll be thankful for its ability to push you outside the box, outside your comfort zone, all the while retaining the essence of what is played. The artifacts created by this pedal are strange, harsh and unusual but never seem misplaced or out of context.
