The Greenhouse Effects Roots Fuzz is part of a new range of pedals from Roy Zichri aimed at bringing the awesome sounds of his full-fat range at a more affordable pricepoint... and at under £100, this dual-channel Muff-style fuzz fits the bill perfectly!
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.
Based on the Big Muff, the Roots Fuzz is an aggressive sounding pedal, with each channel having a distinctive voice.
Roots Fuzz Controls
The Tone control is useable right through the range - Roy recommends trying it with the tone turned completely down!
The Sustain control takes you from medium gain settings through to heavy distortion and then a wall of fuzz.
More open sounding, smoother, with more headroom and a hint of upper octave at maximum gain.
Darker, denser and more compressed, with plenty of sustain and bloom.

On the red mode with the gain turned all the way down it's like a heavy overdrive with a little bit of velcro-y fuzz on it a bit like the 1 knob EHX Muff overdrive and then obviously gets fuzzier as you turn it up
The blue mode is way more compressed and wooly, think Big Muff but without the massive mid scoop
