Electron Fuzz History
From an old news reel:
…Once only rumored to have existed, archeologists recently unearthed the original
Electron Fuzz at the site of the worlds worst nuclear disaster.
On December 23, 1949 nuclear engineers in charge of reactor safety were distracted when one of them built a guitar pedal from parts of the main reactor control panel. This guitar pedal caused massive distortion. …and later lead to massive unimaginable destruction.
”We simply got distracted while playing guitar and forget what we were supposed to be doing.”
The only survivor was also quoted saying “The sound was worth it”.
We can finally hear the sound that caused that unforgettable massive apocalyptic day of destruction.
The Electron Fuzz is a brutal distortion pedal that uses parasitic frequency oscillation to create changing overtones when notes are played and held. With the x1000 gain boost it can be pushed well into unusable ranges and can get incredibly loud. An adjustable feedback loop can be turned on and off for additional noise mangling. Reducing output gain also increases saturation, smoothing out harsher frequencies. It features a low cut toggle, true bypass.
The Electron Fuzz pictured here was custom built into an etched enclosure with a vintage meter and knobs. If you would like one please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
