The Kink Guitar Pedals Russian Plague is a modified Turbo Rat circuit stacked into a 1992 "Civil War" Muff. If you play heavy and want sustain for days, the Russian Plague is the pedal for you!
Use the toggle switch to determine the order of the two circuits, so you can stack distortion into fuzz - or vice-versa.
The modded Turbo Rat circuit ranges from light boost and subtle grit through to that aggressive distortion it's celebrated for, catering to punk, grunge and rock players particularly well.
The "Civil War" Muff circuit brings thick fuzz to the table - there's no subtlety here! It has tons of sustain and gain on tap, ideal for filthy grunge or rock rhythm tones.
Combining the Circuits
The Russian Plague can conjure up some huge, crushing sounds when both channels are operated together, perfect for doom and sludge but also caters to heavy rock and other genres of metal pretty well too.
