KNOBS Fuzz, Volume

SOUNDS This isn’t an extreme fuzz maker intent on mimicking a sitar or a bumblebee. Instead, it offers ultra-fat fuzz that increases the harmonic activity of everything you play to juicy-thick proportions. It responds amazingly well to a guitar’s volume control and your picking attack, cleaning up beautifully for shimmering chords. Though slightly tweaked to excel with humbucker-equipped guitars as per Bonamassa’s request, I found it to be equally happening with single-coils.

WHO’S IT FOR? Players looking for a polite fuzz that doesn’t spit, gate, or fart like other “extreme” boxes. Go here for a fuzzbox that’ll keep your clarity and definition intact while imparting a nice midrange squawk, smooth low-end, and a sweet top end response.
