Introducing the latest Gone Fishing Effects offering to the guitar Gods… The Pedal Grim.

The Grim pedal is a one of a kind vintage Germanium Fuzz pedal. Completely handmade, a fuzz circuit on an old school turret board, point to point wiring with big meaty components, carefully sourced and selected transistors, just the way we know you like it! 

But why only one? Back in 2021 when Churd was making the Tsar pedals, he found two vintage germanium transistors that stood out as having a higher gain than the other transistors. In a bid to keep the Tsar pedals all sounding uniform he kept these two meaty transistors aside. Where they sat in his toolkit, waiting patiently, for a time when they would be called up to duty…That time is now!

This strictly limited edition fuzz is not for the sensible hearted. It boosts your signal at the same time as it crushes your guitars wave creating 'that' absolutely necessary noise.This Fuzz will inspire and scare you in equal measures! On full it is an all out square wave doom machine. Angry, aggressive, loud, brutal, but above all grim.


The artwork for this pedal has been created by illustrator @jessicajumpers and hand painted by artist Rachel Porter.

All proceeds from this prize draw go towards the funding of the upcoming short film ‘Grim’.

'The Grim' Short Film Project

'Grim' is a dark comedy short being produced as a collaboration between Found Films and mental health organisation We Are Hummingbird.

The story follows Sam, a grieving man who’s plans to end his life are thwarted by the presence of a seemingly sinister stranger. 

The film will feature original music from New York based artist DM Stith and UK based grime punk duo Bob Vylan.

By making a film about suicide (albeit a shady one) they aim to raise awareness about suicide and the importance of talking about mental health issues. For more details about the film or to contribute to the main crowdfunder head here:

Why are we backing this film project? 

Approximately 6,000 people die by suicide each year in the UK and many more will make a suicide attempt. Men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women. But suicide is often a topic we choose not to discuss.

We’ve witnessed first hand the effects of poor mental health, suicide and the ripple effect it has on those close by. The 'GRIM' film project sets out to raise awareness around these issues and seeks to find an alternative way to get people talking, which we all know isn’t always easy.
