The Russian Plague is a doom players dream come true.
We have been following the gear that doom players have been using for some time now…
This is the result. A modified Turbo Rat circuit stacked into an untouched Civil war Muff circuit. what comes out when up slam down on those true bypass foot switches, is a massive, sustain for days, fuzz! Whether you love stacking a distortion into a fuzz, or a fuzz into a distortion, the Russian Plague has you covered. The toggle switch on the top of the pedal will allow you to stack these effects in whatever order you like.
Artwork on this pedal was completed by All Things Rotten. Check them out here.
We have used a powder coated and UV printed 1590BB2 enclosure.
95mm x 125mm x 63mm
Uses 9V negative center power supply.

Best fuzz on my board. Super aggressive fuzz, versatile overdrive, and they sound whoom when together. Would recommend very highly. Great pedal.
And absolute sludge is bloody right, this thing paired my with my Orange amps is pure doom heaven!
The muff side gets you the classic doom tones likening to mastodon, sleep, bongzilla and when dialed back has a nice classic fuzz that’s great for rocking out to some grunge other fuzz rock or punk tones.
The modded Rat side is incredible on it’s own, I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of it since I went out of my way to get an old eat years ago and couldn’t gel with it but this side is amazing for that sweeped or mid scooped kinda tone, this side I also found to be able to manipulate more with my amps EQ.
Now for the main course – both sides on together is pure f*cking sludge – paired with an orange amp or a Randall that I’ve used, I’d honestly say its Crowbar in a box, or Corrosion of Conformity, Down or even King Parrot.
I highly recommend this pedal to all the doom guys out there!
You can watch my quick demo of video of this pedal on the Kink Guitar Pedals Facebook page.

Gargantuan tone. Absolutely indispensable to my playing. Fantastic build quality. Love it.
Not only does each side of this pedal sound amazing with all controls set at noon, the tweak-ability and sounds I can get from this are just amazing. The fuzz side is such a full sound I frequently find myself just using this side.
I would add that the the ” case candy” received was amazing and by far the best I have ever received.
Lastly its great to find a pedal with LEDs that do not blind the user, this is an underrated but highly sought after feature
Fucking fantastic. Mark has made a brilliant sounding and highly versatile Rat Muff. It gives you a great range from super heavy dirty to sweet low distortion/ fuzz. So glad i bought this
Really love both drive channels and the ability to switch which one goes first.
Great work Kink
Phenomenal heavy pedal. Don’t even use it for heavy stuff, its just convenient to have a muff and a rat in one easy package. Perfect to dial in anything from either of those 2, and the fact they stack to well is the perfect extra. Another fantastic pedal

Fuzz to die for. Fat distortion that makes my Telecaster turn into Godzilla, but when you stack them it’s hell on Earth. One of my fav pedals on my board and I love supporting local talent!!
This pedal is the best that I have own!
Fantastic pedal, love that you am an switch the circuit to stack it differently

Easily one of the best doom pedals i’ve ever played, the perfect combination of two of my fav circuits. Mark definetly “gets it” as a builder. Highly recommend to anyone. The order switch is a great feature and the two circuits together sound monstrous and the artwork is amazing too, I was surprised how compact and stylish the pedal actually looks!
