Fuzz Pedals Collection | Boost Guitar Pedals

Fuzz Pedals

Fuzz pedals first appeared in the 1960s and soon became popular thanks to links with guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Keith Richards and Pete Townshend.

From the first few pedals, including the Maestro FZ-1 Fuzz Tone and the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face, a multitude of fuzz pedals now exists - some are accurate replicas of these illustrious forebears while others are completely new designs.

GREENHOUSE EFFECTS Roots Fuzz

£79.00

Dual-Channel Muff-Style Fuzz

The Greenhouse Effects Roots Fuzz is the latest fuzz pedal from the Israel-based brand. The first in the new Roots range, its budget-conscious design forsakes the innovation and versatility of the flagship pedals for back-to-basics functionality with a twist...

DSS Switching

The Roots Fuzz is a dual-channel fuzz, using DSS (Dual Switching System) to access two separate channels as well as turn the effect on and off, with just one footswitch.

Loosely based on the Big Muff, the Roots Fuzz is an aggressive sounding pedal, with each channel having a distinctive voice:

Red Channel

More open sounding, smoother, with more headroom and a hint of upper octave at maximum gain.

Blue Channel

Darker, denser and more compressed, with plenty of sustain and bloom.

Tone Control

The Tone control is useable right through the range - Roy recommends trying it with the tone turned completely down.

Sustain Control

The Sustain control takes you from medium gain settings through to heavy distortion and then a wall of fuzz

Features:

  • Great value Big Muff-style fuzz pedal
  • Innovative DSS footswitch with dual-channel feature
  • Soft touch, silent switching
  • Volume, Tone & Sustain controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

    Spitty East German Splutter-Fuzz

    The Fredric Effects Verzerrer is based on the only cold war-era East German distortion pedal, originally produced in the 1960s and '70s. It veers from distortion into spitty fuzz and full on velcro mode and sounds remarkably unique.

    The original featured a plastic enclosure and trim pots that had to be adjusted with a screwdriver - not exactly gig-friendly. Fredric Effects' updated version takes the original design, including using original diodes and transistors, and improves the pedal by encasing it in a sturdy folded metal mini-wedge enclosure and adding circuit-board mounted dip-switches for additional tweakability.

    "It’s just pure nastiness. This pedal nails the splutter-fuzz effect as well as any we’ve tried" - Guitarist Magazine December 2019

    The Bias control allows you to produce gated, dying-battery tones when turned down, or increase sustain as it is turned up.

    The internal dip switches are:

    • NR1/NR2: Noise reduction
    • Limit Res: The original's volume-limiting resistor
    • Boost Off: Boost is on by default in order to engage the volume boost
    • Boost On x2: These must be on to engage the volume boost

    This pedal can produce really gritty sounds that stand out in the mix. The Tone control is very responsive and can bring your sound forward or supress buzzy high end depending on how you set it.

    If you love velcro, spitty fuzz sounds then you can't go wrong with this awesome piece of nostalgia!

    Features:

    • Distortion/fuzz reproduction of a rare East German original
    • Original old-stock diodes and transistors
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Tone, Input Level, Volume, Intensity, Bias & Internal Dip Switch controls
    • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative or 9V battery (neither are included)

    FREDRIC EFFECTS DuoFace

    £140.00

    Germanium & Silicon Fuzz Face

    The Fredric Effects DuoFace is your one-stop shop for the Fuzz Face tones you've been dreaming of. Whether you covet the germanium circuit of early Hendrix, or the more agressive post-'68 silicon version, the DuoFace allows you to have both in a single pedal.

    The Fuzz Face is one of the most famous fuzz pedals of all time, used by guitarists including Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Duane Allman, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Johnson and Joe Bonamassa. It's renowned for its ability to clean up with the guitar's volume pot, making it a great effect if you like to control your sound with your fingers rather than your feet.

    The DuoFace allows you to switch between the germanium and silicon circuits using the toggle switch, and each circuit features a Bias trimpot to adjust how the transistors react - from gated and splatty to smooth and sustainy - for a wide variety of useable sounds.

    Hendrix licks not included!

    Features:

    • Dual fuzz based on the Fuzz Face Germanium & silicon circuits
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Gain, Volume, Si Bias, Ge Bias & circuit toggle controls
    • Power: 9V centre-negative or 9V battery (neither included)

    BAD PENNY FX Fuzz Controller V2

    £145.00

    Built To Order...

    The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is a high gain silicon fuzz with power filtering and independent boost circuits, each of which can be adjusted via internal trim-pots.

    It's a brilliant fuzz, utilising vintage Philips, K40Y-9 Russian military-grade, and Sprague Vitamin Q paper-in-oil capacitors, all connected with vintage-style cloth wiring and housed in a beautiful English ash and aluminium chassis.

    Starve

    Use the Starve switch to limit the power running into the Fuzz Controller, emulating a dying 9V battery for seriously organic, squashy tones.

    Diode

    The Diode switch allows you to switch between LED clipping and 1N4148 silicon diode clipping. When turned off, there's less gain but more volume, enabling an overdrive-type response.

    Bass Cut

    The Bass Cut switch shelves some of the lower frequencies while simultaneously boosting the signal for an aggressive sound.

    Treble Cut

    The Treble Cut switch compresses the high end and lops off the highest frequencies. 

    The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is clean and loud if you want it to be, but set it right and it gets down and dirty too!

    Please note: The Bad Penny FX Fuzz Controller V2 is built to order. Please allow around 7 days build time plus shipping time.

    Features:

    • High-gain silicon fuzz with vintage components
    • English ash hardwood and aluminium enclosure
    • True bypass
    • Handmade in East-Sussex, UK
    • Gain, Master, Starve, Diode, Bass & Treble controls

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp

    £149.00

    Independent Preamp & Fuzz Channels

    The Zander Circuitry Sono is one for all you bassists out there: a bass fuzz and preamp in a single small package. 

    The preamp side of the pedal takes you from clean to medium-gain, and importantly the Blend control allows you to add back in some of your original signal for clarity and spank. 

    Add fuzz to a good core bass tone and you have the recipe for some awesome sounds. Use the fuzz side of the Sono to dial in a tone that suits, and use the Blend control to add back in some of your original signal to ensure nothing gets lost in action. The Rip control enables you to dial in compression and some of that delicious gated/ velcro mayhem. Seriously, let it rip!

    As the preamp and fuzz sides are completely independent, you can also stack them together for even more flexibility.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp features a more compact footprint, with bespoke knurled steel controls. The Blend controls have been updated to work better, the fuzz tone has been tweaked, and the preamp side now offers a wider gain range.

    The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    Features:

    • Updated version of Sono Bass Fuzz & Preamp for 2021
    • Super-versatile fuzz and preamp pedal specifically tuned for bass guitar
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • P Lvl, P Gain, P Blend, F Lvl, F Gain, F Blend, F Tone & F Rip controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).
    • Current draw: 135mA

    Sonic Annihilation!

    From it’s humble beginnings as a modified Fuzz Factory' circuit to its latest iteration, Zander Circuitry's first pedal model has come a long way.

    These days the SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator is a super-versatile 8-knob fuzz monstrosity, capable of taking you from vintage-style fuzz tones right through to complete sonic annihilation!

    There is plenty of scope to push your imagination with this pedal - use the Shunt control to tame feedback and create stuttering gated effects. Squash compresses the attack, creating a synth-like character at higher settings. Starve restricts the voltage to the circuit, creating beautiful dying-battery sounds. Bright allows you to dial in just the right amount of high frequency, while Body enables you to emphasise or cut the low end. Punch controls the mid-range frequencies.

    The Tone footswitch allows you to bypass the Bright and Punch settings to give a fat, mid-rich sound with a volume boost, although the output can be reduced by means of an internal trim pot if required.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry SiClone Silicon Chaos Initiator features a more compact footprint with beautiful knurled steel controls. The circuit is revoiced and the transistors used in this latest version are completely different.

    The footswitches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on either one of the switches. You can also now engage the second footswitch from bypass, without having to activate the pedal first.

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY American Geek

    £149.00

    The Zander Circuitry American Geek takes all that's great about the classic silicon Big Muff circuit and ramps it up a notch. Combining one of the most popular vintage guitar sounds with modern circuit design, the American Geek needs to be experienced.

    Key to getting a great tone with a Muff-style fuzz is the EQ, and the American Geek features a super-tweakable EQ section. Two Shift controls alter the capacitor values in the tone stack, adjusting the filter sweep and cut-off. These controls interact with the Tone control to enable you dial in all versions of the silicon Big Muff - and more.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry American Geek features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

    • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
    • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
    • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.
    • Asymmetrical germanium: A more aggressive germanium sound.
    • Asymmetrical silicon: Beefing up the aggression of the silicon sound.
    • Asymmetrical LED: A more aggressive version of the LED sound.
    • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
    • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

    The pedal features two footswitches, the second of which gives you access to the Blast function - a second channel with an independent volume control and the gain set to maximum. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage a channel by holding your foot down on the relevant switch then releasing it when you're done.

    Features:

    • Updated version of American Geek fuzz for 2021
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Gain, Tone, Shift 1, Shift 2, Blast, Level & Diode Selector controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included).

    ZANDER CIRCUITRY Foxxton Woods

    £149.00

    Upper-Octave Fuzz

    The Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods is an octave fuzz based on the 1970s Foxx Tone Machine. But in true Zander Circuitry fashion, the Foxxton Woods takes the concept to another level, with extra controls giving far more versatility than the original.

    Since the 1960s, fuzz has gone hand-in-hand with octave effects, and it's been popular ever since. The Foxxton Woods spans eras with its tones, from classic '60s to filthy '90s and more. 

    The Body Control adjusts the low-end frequencies, allowing you to dial in muscular, deep tones or a tighter, more focused sound for cutting through a mix - or somewhere in between. 

    The Shift control adjusts the mid-range frequencies, enabling you go from mid-scooped to mid-boosted tones.

    What's new?

    This latest version of the Zander Circuitry Foxxton Woods fuzz features a more compact footprint, beautiful knurled steel controls, and an upgrade from six to eight options on the signature clipping selector:

    • Germanium: A smooth, sweet sounding form of clipping, very ‘amp-like’ in its response.
    • Silicon: Louder, brighter and more aggressive sounding.
    • LED: Even louder, less saturated but very punchy.

    • MOSFET: Similar to the silicon setting but a bit sweeter, crunchier and a touch more saturated.
    • No  diodes: Loads of output but not much gain.

    The pedal features two foot-switches, enabling you to access the octave-fuzz or fuzz separately - each is also linked to an independent volume control. The switches support both momentary and latching switching, meaning that you can temporarily engage one of the effects by holding your foot down on the relevant switch then releasing it when you're done.

    Features:

    • Updated version of Foxxton Woods for 2021
    • Top-mounted jacks
    • Gain, Tone, Body, Shift, O Level, F Level & Diode Selector Controls

    The "Siamese Dream" Fuzz, On Steroids...

    The Zander Circuitry Siva takes the late '70s IC/op-amp Big Muff - as used so effectively by The Smashing Pumpkins - and drags it kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

    The op-amp Muff circuit is perfect for grunge, but can do so much more: it's crunchy, sludgy and is packed full of crushing gain.

    Key to getting a great tone is the EQ, and the Siva features a super-tweakable EQ section. Two Shift controls alter the capacitor values in the tone stack, adjusting the filter sweep and cut-off. These controls interact with the Tone control to enable you to dial in the perfect sound.

    FREDRIC EFFECTS Super Unpleasant Companion Nouveau

    £150.00

    Land Of The Rising Sun Fuzz Machine...

    Fredric Effects' Super Unpleasant Companion Nouveau is a celebration of 2 classic fuzz circuits designed by Japanese company Shin-Ei in the late 1960s and early 1970s. 

    Shin-Ei licensed its designs out to several companies, and perhaps the most famous version of its FY-6 is the Univox Superfuzz, as used by Pete Townshend on the Who's Live At Leeds masterpiece.

    This pedal packs the Shin-Ei Companion FY-2 and Shin-Ei Superfuzz FY-6 circuits into a single compact mini-wedge pedal enclosure. You can switch between the circuits with a handy toggle switch.

    The 'Nouveau' moniker refers to a recent redesign, packaging the fuzz into a smaller enclosure and moving the controls to the top surface.

    Companion FY-2

    The Companion FY-2 is a nasty, raspy chainsaw of a fuzz. It's not super-musical but has plenty of impact, and can be heard in all its glory on The Jesus And Mary Chain's Psychocandy (incidentally, The Jesus And Mary Chain now use Shin-Ei fuzzes modded by Fredric Effects!). Tone 1 setting is mid-dominant with a dense textural edge. Tone 2 mode is like putting a blanket over your cab, but brings a more focused bottom end and a grinding edge to the mid and high notes.

    Superfuzz FY-6

    The Superfuzz FY-6 is a richer style of fuzz but can get really bright thanks to the Expander control (this doesn't work in FY-2 mode). The FY-6 provides a 'wall of sound'. Tone 1 mode is what founder Tim Webster describes as 'garagey' and is slightly muddy, while the second tone mode is more expansive in scope but with a more scooped mid-range.

    Features:

    • Companion FY-2 and Superfuzz FY-6 modes
    • FY-6 mode features 2 tone settings
    • Handmade in London, UK
    • Expander, Balance, Mode & Tone controls
    • Individually numbered and signed by hand
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative or 9V battery (neither are included)

    BAD PENNY FX Wireless

    £150.00

    Built To Order...

    The Bad Penny FX Wireless is a germanium fuzz with flexible switching to ensure you always get the best tones.

    Crank everything to achieve high gain, ripping fuzz tones, or disengage the Gate and Bass switches, pull down the Fuzz knob to minimum and your tone will be sweet and mellow. Being a vintage germanium circuit, it is highly responsive to your guitar volume.

    Gate

    The gate switch controls how much signal is passed to the third transistor. By default it passes the full signal for plenty of gain, but switching it on reduces the signal and therefore gain, for a cleaner fuzz tone.

    There is an internal trim pot that allows you to adjust how much signal is passed when Gate is engaged, 

    Bass

    The bass switch removes the lowest frequencies for a clearer, brighter sound.

    Please note: The Bad Penny FX Wireless is built to order. Please allow around 7 days build time plus shipping time.

    Features:

    • Germanium fuzz with select vintage components
    • English ash hardwood and aluminium enclosure

    Built To Order...

    The Bad Penny FX Widow is a dual footswitch design offering stackable overdrive and fuzz channels. 

    The overdrive circuit is based on Bad Penny FX's Trainscreamer overdrive pedal, taking you from mild boost to singing sustain. Bad Penny FX have designed this circuit to preserve and enhance the low-end frequencies in your signal, giving you warmth and thickness when you need it.

    The fuzz circuit is designed to be stacked after the overdrive circuit in series. The drive it receives from the overdrive gives it plenty of attack. Use the Bite control to starve the circuit and create stuttery, breaking up sounds, and use the Evil control to cut bass from your tone (this control can be fine-tuned via an internal trim-pot).

    The ability to stack a low-gain overdrive circuit into a fuzz circuit gives this pedal tons of versatility - use the overdrive on its own or add the fuzz to bring the gain!

    Please note: The Bad Penny FX Widow is built to order. Please allow around 7 days build time plus shipping time.

    The Tate FX Raise The Dead is a single-knob design based on a 1960s Colorsound fuzz.

    Founder Stuart is a stickler for attention to detail, and he has gone all out with the components for this pedal. After feedback from early versions, he has included a small input transformer to simulate the inductance and resistance from a guitar pickup to allow it to work perfectly anywhere in a signal chain - particularly after buffered pedals.

    Specially selected transistors, 1% metal film resistors and the some of the best capacitors on the market all combine to make this an incredible sounding silicon fuzz. It has tons of gain on tap and good bass response, so use that dial with care!

    This is the first - not from the first batch but THE first - gloss-print Raise The Dead pedal available anywhere, and it looks awesome! Grab yourself a bit of history.

    Boost Guitar Pedals has commissioned Tate FX to build a limited run of Tate FX Raise The Dead fuzz pedals with a unique switchable second stage.

    With the toggle switch in the 'Up' state, the pedal runs as the original Raise The Dead - a silicon transistor fuzz that can get pretty aggressive. But on this BGP Limited Edition, switch the toggle to the 'Down' position and hand-selected germanium transistors come into play, making the sound softer, warmer and harmonically rich, providing a spongier feel for the player and a useful alternative tone to the silicon of the base model.

    The Tate FX Raise The Dead BGP Limited Edition is exclusive to Boost Guitar Pedals, with just a handful of units built in the initial run: you won't find these anywhere else!

    FORMULA B Fuzz Rangers

    £175.00

    Legendary Boost & Fuzz In One Pedal!

    The Formula B Fuzz Rangers takes two iconic circuits and encloses them in a beautifully finished chassis, with vintage-style controls. With the option to run the Fuzz or Boost independently, it's an incredibly flexible pedal for your pedalboard, but where it gets interesting is that there's a toggle to set the direction of the signal. You can choose whether to run the Boost into the Fuzz, or vice-versa. The results differ dramatically...

    Fuzz

    The Fuzz circuit is based on the silicon Fuzz Face, using a pair of NOS military-spec BC108 transistors and carbon-layer resistors. It sounds great on its own, and reacts really nicely to your guitar's volume pot - as Fuzz Faces do. Running the Fuzz into the Boost gets you a clearer tone with plenty of gain to push your amp, showcasing all that lovely Fuzz Face breakup.

    Boost

    The Boost circuit is based on the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster, with silicon BC549 transistors to reduce compatibility problems (polarity, power etc) with the Fuzz circuit. Uniquely, there's a toggle switch to shift the Boost emphasis between Low, Mid and High frequencies, making it more flexible than a traditional Rangemaster. Running the Boost into the Fuzz saturates the input of the Fuzz Face and gets you a rich, warm, super-fuzzy character which responds well to how you set the EQ toggle.

    More than simply for fans of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, this pedal will serve you well with its vintage vibe and tonal flexibility.

    Features:

    • Dual-channel pedal with independent Fuzz and Boost circuits.
    • NOS BC108 transistors and carbon-layer resistors on the Fuzz side.
    • Silicon-based Rangemaster circuit on the Boost side for greater compatibility with the Fuzz.
    • Effects Order toggle switch enables you to run the Fuzz into the Boost, or the Boost into the Fuzz when both channels are activated.
    • EQ toggle allows you to emphasise Low, Mid or High frequencies on the Boost side.
    • Handmade in Todi, Italy
    • Fuzz, Level, Boost, EQ toggle & Effects Order toggle controls
    • Power: 9V power supply, centre-negative (not included)
    • Current draw: 10mA

    STOMPNORTH Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner

    £180.00

    From Fuzzy to Fuzzier

    Stompnorth's Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is based on the classic silicon Fuzz Face circuit popularised by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour.

    Built around expensive low-noise foil capacitors, this very useable fuzz takes the Fuzz Face circuit and beefs it up with some very welcome extra features.

    A/B Toggle

    The A/B toggle switches between bright and normal frequency response, enabling you to easily dial in a sound for either humbuckers or single-coils.

    Bias

    The Bias control enables you to adjust the response of the pedal, from a gated, dying battery character when turned anti-clockwise, to regular at around 12 'o'clock, and full sustain and body when turned clockwise.

    If you love the Fuzz Face sound (and let's be honest, who doesn't?!), the Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is the pedal for you.

    Features:

    • Based on the silicon Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face
    • High quality, low-noise components
    • Additional features include Bias and tone response
    • Fuzz, Bias, Volume & A/B toggle Controls
    • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

    Diverse Tone Bender Fuzz Tones

    The Red Noise Stone Blender is a modern take on the Sola Sound Tone Bender, one of the most famous names in the world of fuzz pedals.

    But far from being a one-trick pony, the Stone Blender features a neat 4-way Diode Switch which lets you select one of four different clipping diodes for diverse voicing options:

    1N60 (Green) - Purry, germanium overdrive-like fuzz, offering oodles of saturation and crunch.

    1N4148 (Red) - Sizzling up top while punching you in the gut, this is the MkIV Sola Sound Tone Bender sound - a classic fuzz tone.

    Yellow LED (Yellow) - A loud and aggressive character which adds volume as well as gain and bite.

    Blue LED (Blue) - Extremely distorted and high gain in character, this is full-on and in your face. You could say it goes to 11...

    Built around NOS Toshiba 2SC2240 transistors, with sturdy Alpha pots and that addictive NOS germanium diode, the Red Noise Stone Blender screams quality and tonal authority.

    De-Clip

    The innovative De-Clip control adjusts the tonal balance and presence of the mids, enabling you to get your sound sitting perfectly in a busy recording or live scenario - alleviate those mid-scoop issues once and for all!

    It can help you increase pick attack, and works wonders with bass guitar (Founder Ariel is a bassist and this pedal is more than capable of some 4-string thunder!).

    Features:

    • Based on the MKIV Sola Sound Tone Bender
    • 4-way diode selection (1N60, 1N4148, Yellow LED, Blue LED)
    • NOS Japanese Transistors (Toshiba 2SC2240)
    • NOS Germanium Diode (1N60)
    • High quality Alpha Pots
    • Volume, Tone, Fuzz, Diode and De-Clip controls
    • True Bypass

    BASIC AUDIO Scarab Deluxe

    £210.00

    The Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe is the company's flagship guitar pedal. It takes the famed silicon Tone Bender MKII circuit and builds on it with some home and stage-friendly modifications.

    The Fat control is a variable low frequency input control, allowing you to optimise the pedal for humbuckers or single coils. by adjusting its response and feel, from girthy to snappy.

    Tonebender-type circuits vary depending on the bias of the 3rd transistor. Adjust the Bias control for gritty, gated tones at one end of the dial, sustaining lead tones in the middle, and sweet lower-gain tones at the other end of the rotation. Bias affects tone and gain.

    Some Tone Bender MKII pedals can get lost in a mix, but the inclusion of a Tone control ensures that you'll never get swamped by the rhythm section again.

    Features:

    • Based on the legendary Tone Bender MKII
    • Level, Tone, Fuzz, Fat & Bias controls
    • Handwired in Fayetteville, West Virginia, USA
    • 9V power supply, centre-negative or 9V battery (neither are included)
