Orders & Deliveries FAQ

To celebrate the first year of the Fuzz Rangers, Formula B has released a limited production Anniversary Edition with an awesome Hendrix/SRV mod.

The Formula B Fuzz Rangers Anniversary Edition takes two iconic guitarists - Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan - and captures their sounds in a single beautifully finished chassis with vintage-style controls.

Choose from Hendrix-flavour fuzz (as per the standard Fuzz Rangers) or SRV-flavour fuzz, allied to an independent Boost channel based on the Dallas Rangemaster Treble Booster.  

With the option to run the Fuzz and Boost channels 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 Rangers Fuzz Circuit

The JH mode of the Fuzz 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.

The SRV mode is based on the Cesar Diaz-built Square Face, giving a different take on the Fuzz Face. When combined with the Rangemaster-based Boost circuit, you'll get the desirable SRV Texas Ranger pedal sound!

Fuzz Rangers Boost Circuit

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.
