Steel Panther - "The Butthole Burner" Pedal

Category: CD/Video Reviews

Steel Panther sparked controversy in the music gear world when they released their controversially titled “Pussy Melter” distortion pedal.  Feminist’s lost their collective minds over the pedal’s name which spark a high demand for it.  The “Pussy Melter” retailed for $199 plus shipping.

The “Pussy Melter” sold out immediately and was sold on resale sites Reverb and Ebay for double the original price after the pedal had sold out.  Shortly thereafter Reverb and Ebay pulled all listings for the pedal due to it’s offensive name.

Flash forward one year later and the band released the “Poontang Boomerang”.  This modded delay pedal sold quite well but failed to capture the controversial buzz like the “Pussy Melter” had.  The “Poontang Boomerang” retailed for $199.

Flash forward to the Spring of 2020, while everyone is stuck in their homes under quarantine from the Corona Virus, Rock N Shock Comedian Metal band Steel Panther are at it again, offering fans and guitarists a new distortion pedal titled “The Butthole Burner” which ships in the Summer of 2020.

Retail priced at $199, “The Butthole Burner” is available for presale now on Steel Panther’s website.  The Official Press Release for the pedal states:

Ladies and gentlemen, Steel Panther presents THE BUTTHOLE BURNER
