The Black Fuzz is a simple and elegant pedal. The Black Fuzz has a pretty unique sound–imagine an overdriven B*ssman amp, with a slight amount of fuzz tacked on top…that’s the territory this guy gets into! The single knob adjusts the output volume level of the pedal. This pedal is very fat and pick sensitive.
By adjusting the guitar’s volume control or varying the pick attack, a range of tones can be had. Dig in, and this thing barks! Back off a bit on the guitar’s volume control, or pick lighter, and a beautiful semi-clean sound can be had. Notes seem to bloom with this pedal.
