A collaboration between EQD and Boris' Wata!
The Hizumitas was designed for the one and only guitar sorceress, Wata, from the legendary band Boris!
The Hizumitas is a faithful sonic recreation of her go-to distortion: the Elk BM Sustainar.
The Elk Sustainar is a Japanese variant of the more well-known Triangle Big Muff.
The Hizumitas has loads of heavy distortion and smooth sustain with an underlying grit to it that sounds like your speakers are on the verge of ripping!
You also get amazing clarity that you wouldn’t expect from something this aggressive sounding.
The Sustain control has a wide range of saturation: even small changes will have a great effect on the overall tone.
The Hizumitas has excellent response to different pickup types and playing dynamics.
Power chords sound huge and heavy, open chords are dynamic with fantastic note separation.
Single-note leads are smooth and powerful, especially when using the neck pickup.
The Tone control can drastically change the distortion’s character in conjunction with the Sustain setting.
Bass frequencies are boosted clockwise while treble frequencies are boosted when turned counterclockwise.
As the Tone is turned clockwise, the mids become less present, highs are tamed, and a massive, thundering low-end comes to the forefront.
As you might expect, there is plenty of output gain on tap, so be careful. Unity is around 9-10 o’clock and everything above that is set to destroy!
