The circuit on which this pedal is based originally came from an issue of Popular Electronics from the late 1950’s. Like the first amps we built, it is the same design as the pedal Dave first built for his dad in 1957.
The very special fuzz distortion effect has stood the test of time, and if you want a true classic, this is your fuzz pedal.
Many, many pedals have come and gone since this circuit originated, but in our opinion, it’s never been topped. That’s why we call it the Fuzz Magic, because there’s just something magical about it.
The heavy duty cast aluminum enclosure contains a custom printed circuit board, all hand wiring, Gain and Fuzz level controls, and an LED active effect indicator. It measures 2.5” x 4.7” x 1.5” and can be powered by a 9VDC negative center AC acapter or the included 9V battery.
