GET CAUGHT BY THE FUZZ!

Published: Fri November 24, 2006  News Feed

Get dirty with the amazing Fuzz pedals we have on offer!

From the Rolling Stone's classic “Satisfaction” riff to the White Stripe's anthemic “7 Nation Army”, fuzz pedals have played a crucial role in shaping the sound of rock'n'roll. Dirtier and rawer than the usual distortion effect, fuzz pedals are the perfect option for the guitarists who wish to push their amps to the limit, and still keep a great tone.

Think of one of the Beatles' noisiest moments, “Revolution”. Think of Led Zeppelin's dirty blues licks. And, of course, think of Jimi Hendrix. They all used fuzz.

Dolphin Music offers a wide range of fuzz pedals, and here's a small selection we chose for you:

The vintage:

Dunlop's Fuzz Face (£95) is the faithful re-creation of the original fuzz pedal made in the 60's by Dallas-Arbiter, and used by the likes of Hendrix and Eric Clapton (in his Cream days). In modern times, John Squire of the Stone Roses was the most renowned user. With rugged construction and Germanium transistor design, the Dunlop Fuzz Face is perfect for those seeking a vintage fuzz tone. (view page)

The modern:

The Big Muff (£49,99) by Electro-Harmonix, is the most widely used fuzz pedal now. Everyone from the White Stripes to the Red Hot Chili Peppers seems seduced by its powerful sound, and it remains one of EHX's most popular pedals. (view page)

The future:
It was so hard to pick just one, so we had to choose two! The Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz (£85) offers a unique 6-band EQ that takes the possibilities of the fuzz sound to new levels! (view page) 

Carl Martin's The Fuzz (£149) is a top-of-the-range pedal, with 3-band EQ and a revolutionary wave guide. (view page)


The quirky:

BBE's Free Fuzz (£104,99) is a new model for those guitarists seeking a more original sound. Its creamy tone is perfect for Blues and Jazz players also – a good reminder that not just “rock'n'rollers” use fuzz. (view page)


The budget:

The Ibanez FZ7 fuzz pedal (£35) is a great option for the guitarists on a budget. And it offers a very original “damage control” switch, that simulates a damaged speaker sound - the very origin of the fuzz effect! (view page)

 

 

We hope this brief guide has been helpful, so get your fuzz box and make some noise!
