Rotosound is reissuing its Vintage Fuzz Pedal using the same circuit configuration as the ’60s original, but with modern resistors and capacitors. The pedal uses a Darlington Pair for high-gain input, which drives a temperature-compensated “fuzz” transistor; the Fuzz control can govern changes in the amount of drive from a soft crunch to a gruff growl whilst retaining the germanium roundness. The Treble control varies ratio of bass to treble, allowing a range from muddy to crisp. The Volume control alters the output level and to maintain cleanliness of sound, the pedal is switched on using dedicated contacts on the ‘instrument’ input jack. Learn more at rotosound.com.
