Chibson USA Placebo Pedal

Chibson USA Delivers Finest Transparent Tone Tech With the Placebo Pedal Leave a comment

Chibson USA has unveiled, in partnership with Daredevil, the Placebo Pedal, showcasing transparent tone technology at its finest as it does “absolutely nothing” to your guitar signal.

Control-wise, the Placebo Pedal consists of a footswitch, LED indicator, and dual control dials marked Dosage and Side FX. Again, all of these won’t affect your guitar signal at all.

On the flip side, you may also opt to incorporate Daredevil’s classic fuzz circuit for an extra $25, even though it defeats the non-purpose of the Placebo Pedal.

Per Chibson USA’s announcement on social media: “We spent over a year and a half of research and development bringing this pedal to life and we are proud to say…it does absolutely nothing.”

To create some hilarious promotional videos, the Instagram comedians have also roped in Gear Dogs and Mastodon’s Brent Hinds. You can watch them below.

The Placebo Pedal is available in limited quantities at a reduced price of $99 instead of the regular $1,496.
