Reuss Musical Instruments

Reuss Fisklåda (pre-order)

Ships from September 2nd 2020. Available to pre-order now (not sold out)

Based on the unique Swedish 1970s Carlin Compressor

The Fisklåda offers a smooth compression which sustains the decay and doesn’t squeeze your attack. The pedal also let's you dial in any amount of great sounding distortion to the compression. From nothing to full-on fuzz

The original Carlin Compressor is famously used by guitarist Reine Fiske from Swedish band Dungen, and the Fisklåda is made in tribute to him. Hence the name. I originally made a two Fisklådas as a custom order back in 2013, as a gift to Reine Fiske from an American music journalist (who also wanted one for himself). The artwork is inspired by a can of Swedish ’Måsens’ brand surströmming (foul smelling fermented herring), and Fisklåda means ”Fish Box” in Swedish.

The Carlin Compressor is a very unique and unusual electronic design, and I liked the custom order Fisklåda pedals so much, I always wanted to revisit it. So here it is, in a limited edition of 40 pedals.

The pedals ships from late September 2020, and they are available to pre-order now.

Demo coming asap.
