The YETI™ is a massive, tight sounding fuzz that’s almost a distortion, so I decided to call it a ‘Fuzz-Stortion’. Anything from that sloppy 70’s fuzz to a modern high gain ‘wall of tone’ can be achieved with the YETI™. And with four switchable gain voicings the sonic possibilities are almost endless. Find him, listen to him howl and don’t be afraid to make him angry!
The Manhattan™ takes the idea of a classic analog flanger to another level. Based on the tried and true foundation of the Martini™ Chorus, the Manhattan™ redefines what a flanger should sound like. The Manhattan™ is not trying to copy or clone any existing flanger on the market although it can achieve all the classic tones we love along with much more. With the “Mix” depth and “Bourbon” feedback controls, the Manhattan™ can go from a glassy, beautiful analog chorus to an airplane like flanger all the way to a crazy, freakout modulator like no other. With this and the signature Tortuga dual foot-switchable rate controls, the Manhattan’s versatility is unmatched. Pull up a stool and get a taste of a classic Manhattan™.

The Sasquatch™ Silicon is different tweak on his Germanium brother. The Silicon transistors give it a more aggressive and tighter tone than the Germanium version. The Sasquatch™ Silicon also beautifully cuts through the mix for solos and adds tons of warmth and low-end for everything else. Just like his brother, if you decide to ‘Make Him Mad’ you’ll tap into his freak-out mode which produces gain, feedback and overtones like you’ve never heard before. You can even manipulate the pitch and growl of the feedback with the controls on your guitar. The Sasquatch™ Silicon is the newest monster in the woods. Can you ‘find him’?
The Mai Tai™ is a beautiful take on a classic ‘script’ era phaser. It has a warm and sloshy midrange sweep that encompasses everything we want in a great phaser and even travels a bit into ‘vibe’ territory. As with any Tortuga effect, the Mai Tai™ does not take anything away from your tone; it only enhances it, makes it bigger and simply more lush. It also has a dual set of depth (Mix) and rate (Rum) controls that can be set separately and switched between so it’s like having two Mai Tais in one. I mean, we all know once you start, you can’t have just one Mai Tai™.
The Martini™ is a lush, analog chorus who’s tone is truly intoxicating. With two different speed controls that can be switched on the fly, The Martini™ acts as two completely different pedals in one. The second channel also has a switch for ‘Shaken’ or ‘Stirred’ to select either chorus or vibrato to add even more tonal combinations to the mix.
The Martini™ also features a real bucket-brigade analog delay chip at its core which gives it that true, old-school chorus warmth and swirl. So, belly up to the bar, skip the brew and instead, have yourself a classic Martini™.
With the Werewolf™, you won’t have to wait for a full moon to transform your tone. Capable of anything from a clean boost to a blues overdrive and even a metal crunch, this monster truly has it all. With two completely different gain circuits, each with dual foot-switchable gain controls, the sonic possibilities are almost endless. The Werewolf™ was also designed to blend seamlessly with a tube amp to enhance its tone and to provide the versatility needed for any style or situation. The Werewolf™ isn’t just another distortion box, it’s a true tone monster
The Rain Delay is a classic, digital echo and delay that will really get the crowd cheering. With dual, switchable rate controls, the Rain Delay can act like both a small room echo and a long solo delay at the push of a foot switch. It can also be run at 9v with the internal battery or external power supply for more of an analog warmth or up to 18v with external power for more headroom and clarity.
Foot-switchable Rate Control (“Home” 0-300ms, “Away” 200-600ms)
Internal 9v battery/ External power adaptor jack for 9v or 18v operation
100% true bypass
Hand wired in the USA
Enclosure Size: 3 5/8” x 4 5/8” x 1 1/4”
The Abduction™ may be the single greatest thing to happen to your sound. It was designed to blend beautifully with your tube amp to add richness and gain without sacrificing your original tone. With three completely different gain circuits, each with dual foot-switchable gain controls, the sonic possibilities are almost endless. The Abduction™ has two different sets of old-stock Germanium diodes at it’s core that add a depth and color not available from most overdrives. Also, with the addition of an internal ‘Kill’ voicing trim pot, you can truly customize your tone. So now you must ask yourself, are you ready for an out-of-this-world Abduction™?
