The Fuzz from Jackson Audio takes faithful recreations of historic fuzz circuits and brings them together in one modular pedal that allows you to create classic fuzz sounds as well as new fuzz sounds that are impossible with these original circuits !
Because all fuzz pedals are different and all of them bring something unique sonically, with the Fuzz you can update your fuzz sound completely with analog plug-ins and turn your pedal into a whole new pedal with a simple and affordable plug-in swap. EQ and especially the mids, are where the guitar makes its stand. Not enough mids and your guitar is lost in the mix. Too much highs and your tone is piercing and off-putting. Too much bass and you compete sonically with the bass drum and bass player.
With the parametric EQ on the Fuzz, you have a fully parametric 3-band EQ with 9 controls at your disposal to sculpt your tone and make sure you are never lost in the mix! Each of the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls can be adjusted at +/-20dB and there are 2 extra (and mostly internal) trimmers for each band to select its frequency and Q. The octave circuit in the Fuzz is the perfect marriage of vintage and modern thanks to its unique octave Blend control which allows to mix your clean signal with the fuzz/octave signal and dial in precisely how much octave effect you want.
When fully counterclockwise, the octave circuit acts as a boost and is perfect for slamming the front of the fuzz circuit and get more gain, or for boosting the front of other pedals, or just running as an always-on signal buffer/booster. When fully clockwise, there is no clean blend so your signal is fully fuzzed out with however much fuzz/octave you have dialed in with the Oct control. The Fuzz comes stock with 2 analog plug-ins: Modern Fuzz (installed): from vintage-style fuzz at lower settings to snarling spitting fuzz at higher settings, the Modern Fuzz plug-in does it all and cleans up beautifully when your guitars volume control is lowered.
Fuzz Classic/Vintage: the classic Fuzz with the smiley face! This plug-in has lower gain and a looser/softer feel. This plug-in is perfect for the earlier Jimi era tones.
Jackson Audio is also releasing 4 more analog plug-ins for the Fuzz:
Modern Fuzz Deluxe (2 types of clipping), Fuzz Classic/Modern (high-gain Fuzz Face style), Fuzz Page Mark II (Led Zeppelin style), Goat Head (Ramís Head Big Muff style).
