Fuzz

J Mascis Rams Head Big Muff

I love Fuzz! Fuzz pedals are one essential part of my guitar sound. Nothing but Fuzz gives you the richness, the texture, the character, the dirt, the nastiness, the liveliness, the organics only a Fuzz can give to your guitar tone.

Alone or stacked, into a clean or dirty amp, guitar volume up or down, Fuzz pedals give you endless possibilities to shape your tone to where it should be.

I like one trick ponys! I don’t like to fiddle around much. When I like to have a sound, I’d like to grab the right pedal and that’s it. For sure a Fuzz Factory is a great pedal, but I would probably go crazy with one of these.

Stay tuned, I’ll present my Fuzz pedals here, one after the other, with their strengths and charming weaknesses. Where available, I’ll provide a link to a recording where the pedal is used.
