Wilson Effects : FUZZ


Q: When is a Tone Bender not a Tone Bender?
A: When it’s the Wilson Effects ‘Fuzz’.

I’ll let Kevin Wilson, Owner/Builder of Wilson Effects explain : “The base circuit for the Fuzz is a classic fuzz pedal that is very sought after even today. It is based off of the classic Tone Bender circuit, but this isn’t your grandpa’s tone bender. The Fuzz has the stock controls that every tone bender is known to have, volume, treble, bass and dirt. These obviously need no explaining but the line function, what is that? The line works in conjunction with the dirt function helping you sculpt the overall tone of the pedal. With more bells and whistles that other tone bender circuits on the market this pedal is sure to become one of your favorites. Just ask Josh Klinghoffer. The Fuzz enables you to go from a clean fuzz overtone to all out nasty in your face fuzz tones that rival that of the vintage units. The pedal itself is a positive ground circuit just like the vintage model. There however is no conflict with power supplies as there is an included voltage inverter to correct this problem.”
