In stock

SKU: ZUUL(6010) Category: Tags: , , ,
The ZUUL’s threshold knob also controls the dynamics of the gate circuit. Perfect for guitar, bass or any signal source as it has studio quality specifications. Use in front of an amplifier or in a series effects loop. Dual colour LED for visual feedback gating action: Green = Open, Orange = Closed, Off = Bypass. The KEY input signal can be directly from your guitar (ex. split from ROACH or SPLIFF) or other signal source which lets you go from clean to high gain without changing the Threshold knob. This powerful feature lets you control the gate with a different signal than what flows through the input/output jacks of the ZUUL. Side switch (internal jumper or early versions) to change the threshold range to compensate for different input signal levels. Industry standard true bypass switching. Proudly made in North America.

3 reviews for FORTIN ZUUL – BlackOut

    Absolutely killer and super effective noise gate. The best gate I’ve ever own and the last one I’ll ever need.

    Just added two Zuuls to my rig (running two different, multichannel amps at all times) and these are game-changers. When used with a Spliff or Roach, the Zuul works wonderfully while maintaining my playing dynamics and there is absolutely zero tone suck that I was experiencing from other Noise Gates. I can keep the same settings on the Zuuls when switching between clean and dirty channels on the amps in the Zuuls take it in stride. Additionally, Fortin did everyone a favor by making it obvious on how to connect these pedals. Highly recommended. Thanks Fortin for cleaning up my signal!

    This is an absolute beast of a noise gate . This gates your guitar signal path and gates the amp through the return-effects. Covers it all, very genius. Funny thing is I have the Fortin Cali 50 and it’s the quietest amp, not really a need for a gate. This gate works perfect on my Mesa’s . This pedal will stay on your board if you get it. Highly recommend. Erin BC
