KNOBS Volume, 6-position Tweak switch, Gain

SOUNDS This sturdily constructed pedal offers multiple flavors of fuzz, now with increased output level. In lieu of a typical tone control, a rotary Tweak switch selects one of six presets, each of which interacts with the Gain control differently. The Tweak switch spans relatively thin sounds to considerably meatier ones—though all settings bulk-up and sing with mega-sustain when the Gain control is cranked. The Tweak Fuzz doesn’t clean up particularly well, and individual note definition is only moderately good—but overall, the sounds are tight, fat, and punchy, boasting a lively squarewave edge that endows them with true vintage fuzz authority.

WHO’S IT FOR? Anyone desiring classic fuzz sounds six ways to Sunday.
