The origins of the Fuzz lie around the MKIV Bender from the late 60s, early 70s. It is a germanium transistor based circuit and is the most versatile of our line up. This pedal has been loaded with three N.O.S. transistors that have been selected and tested for gain and leakage. The circuit has been biased to perfection. This pedal can go from big thick smooth fuzz tones on over to super bright ice pick to the forehead tones. You can go from gritty fuzz to smooth fuzz depending on how you set the controls. It really covers everything from 60s to modern fuzz tones with ease.
