The origins of the Fuzz lie around the MKIV Bender from the late 60’s, early 70’s. It is a germanium transistor based circuit and is the most versatile of Hudson’s line up. This pedal is loaded with N.O.S. transistors that have been selected and tested for gain and leakage. The circuit has been biased to perfection.
The fuzz can go from big, thick and smooth to super bright ice pick to the forehead tones. You can go from gritty to smooth fuzz depending on how the controls are set. It really covers everything from 60’s to 70’s fuzz tones with ease.
Handwired from scratch onto a vintage-style stripboard, using the highest quality components, each Fuzz comes loaded with CITEC pots, a heavy duty Alpha switch, Neutrik Jacks, carbon film resistors, WIMA / BC / Vishay capacitors and other high quality components.
VOLUME - Controls the volume of the pedal.
FUZZ - Controls the intensity of the fuzz effect.
TREBLE BASS - Controls the tone of the pedal.
Like many vintage fuzz pedals, the Fuzz runs only on a single 9v battery. Disconnecting the input jack when not in use allows the battery to last a long time, due to the very low current draw of the circuit. The unit comes with a Zinc Chloride type battery, which we highly recommend.
