    The Label: So now you are asking yourself "Why would I spend $600 on a pedal?" I'm glad you asked. Before the Germ reached its final state there was "The Germ MK1" unlike it's big brother it is 100 percent Germanium. And it is different! This is not a pedal for the light hearted, when you first turn it on you might think your amp is broken. It's sputtery over the top crazy fuzz that sounds more like "The Plague!" In addition to this you will also receive Karaoke Star, Player, AND Songwriter. Plus as an extra bonus you will get "The ScrubBrush" prototype. "The ScrubBrush is designed to work with "The Germ" Although it is still in early stages the results have been very pleasing, and you'll get to hear it for yourself. It was designed to act as a stand alone clean boost, or when put before the germ it brightens the pedal and brings out the mids for a great combo!

    Are you an independently wealthy millionaire? Do you have no idea what to spend your money on and now you are bored and scrolling through Kickstarter just looking for something to ease the burden of all that cash? Well here's a chance to relieve a small amount of that pressure. Fund The Germ! If you fund "The Germ" I will name a HazelEffects pedal after you. Thats right, if your name is Grover Roberts, then I will produce a pedal named "The Grover Roberts." If your name is to long to fit on the box, then we will wrap it around the box! What ever it takes. Of course you still get all of the other goodies, like the Sweet Tee, and a final production Germ, as well as a ScrubBrush Prototype! And of course everyone will know that "You Are The Man!"(Or Woman!)
