Inspired by the '70s Brazilian Tropicalia movement, Beetronics developed the Abelha Tropical Fuzz Pedal - a nostalgic-sounding dirt unit with loads of rich, buzzing tones on tap. Featuring three distinct flavors of fuzz, the Abelha can blend into any performance environment, whether you need a subtle spitty distortion or a huge, rounded fuzz tone. Check it out if you've been searching for a one-of-a-kind fuzz pedal with a unique tropical flair!
The Abelha boasts three different fuzz modes: Polen, Nectar, and Honey. Polen delivers a gritty, sagging tone reminiscent of a germanium fuzz pedal with a dying battery. Nectar has a much rounder, fuller sound - this setting is for players who love dishing out massive walls of fuzz. The final mode, Honey, has a more contained sound with less gain. Between these three modes, musicians can cover tons of tonal ground.
Aside from the mode toggle switch, the Abelha Tropical Fuzz boasts a 4-knob interface that allows for precise sonic adjustments. The Buzz control modifies the intensity of the fuzz effect, while the Volume knob sets the pedal's output. The Abelha's interface is rounded out with HI and LO controls that enable accurate EQ shaping.
The Abelha does have one more trick up its sleeve - Tropical Mode. When you hold or double-tap the footswitch, you engage a high-pass filter that instantly takes your signal into Brazilian Tropicalia territory. You can expect a highly musical fuzz that's bright, exciting, and infused with vintage nostalgia.
You don't need to be a Brazilian music enthusiast to love the Beetronics Abelha Tropical Fuzz pedal. With its versatile voice, players can conjure up nearly any fuzz sound imaginable - be that an old-school tropical fuzz tone or something more modern and cutting.
