Kasabian Guitarist Launches Psychedelic Fuzz Pedal with Reverb

Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist of the British rock band Kasabian, has partnered with Gone Fishing Effects to create the Sergery, a new psychedelic fuzz pedal with reverb. The pedal aims to capture the sound of vintage amps from the late 1960s and early 1970s in a compact, portable format.

The Sergery pedal features a minimalist design, with no knobs or top-mounted controls except for a single footswitch. A reverb effect is hidden underneath the surgical steel casing. The pedal's aesthetic is inspired by Kasabian's upcoming album, Happenings.

Pizzorno explains his vision for the pedal: "I wanted the sound of a [Ennio] Morricone soundtrack," he says. Psychedelic vintage amp sound with reverb, that you can easily take on the road. "Now wherever I am in the world I can plug in the Sergery pedal and like surgery itself, it fixes all the problems!"

The Sergery pedal is priced at £295 (approximately $360) and will be available for presale on May 31, 2024. Interested buyers can find more information on the Gone Fishing Effects website.

Gone Fishing Effects has a history of collaborations with notable musicians. The company previously worked with Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil on the Booooom Blast signature stompbox and created 36 interconnecting fuzz pedals. Richard 'Churd' Pratt, the founder of Gone Fishing Effects, collaborated closely with Pizzorno to bring his sonic and visual concept for the Sergery pedal to life.

The launch of the Sergery psychedelic fuzz pedal marks another exciting partnership between a prominent musician and a boutique effects pedal maker. With its unique design and vintage-inspired sound, the pedal offers guitarists a new tool to shape their tone and unleash their creativity.
