The King Fuzz from Bigfoot Engineering is winning critical aclaim left, right and centre, and colour us impressed! Here's what Bigfoot have to say about it:
"The King Fuzz was designed to produce the same dynamic range as a valve (tube) amplifier. The circuit is structured in the same way, with several gain stages which cascade into each other to gradually and naturally introduce distortion a little at a time.
By introducing distortion into the circuit using multiple stages, the dynamic range of each component is left intact because no single one is being saturated too greatly. This means when you roll down your guitar's volume control or pick softly, the pedal has greater headroom to respond to your playing dynamics, even at extreme high gain settings.
There is an incredible range of tones available with our uniquely wired Gain control. You can dial in any amount of dirt, from the sound of a valve (tube) amplifier on the point of breakup, to an all out wall of fuzz.
The EQ curve of the King Fuzz has been meticulously designed so that it doesn't just perfectly match any guitar, it actually augments its character. Every setting exhibits a big, bold sound that will always cut through without ever becoming harsh."
