FUZZ! The sound of rock and righteous indignation worldwide! That spitting, snarling and surly sound of rock legends past and present!
The FUZZ from Jackson Audio takes faithful recreations of historic fuzz circuits and brings them together in one modular pedal that allows you to create classic fuzz sounds as well as new fuzz sounds that are impossible with these original circuits!
The idea of creating a modular fuzz came about as we were trying to decide which style of fuzz would be the most musical fuzz of all time. The answer quickly became, "All of them!" All of them are different, and all of them bring something unique sonically.
With the FUZZ, you can update your fuzz sound completely with our analog plug-ins and turn your pedal into a whole new pedal with a simple and affordable plug-in swap.
"In the 30 years since I began playing guitar, I have always loved fuzz pedals. I've bought countless versions of them over the years, but in my mind, they've always had a massive shortcoming. They desperately need more effective tone controls! That's why I designed the FUZZ with a 3 band, fully parametric EQ." - Brad Jackson
EQ and especially the mids, are where the guitar makes its stand. Not enough mids and your guitar is lost in the mix. Too much highs and your tone is piercing and off-putting. Too much bass and you compete sonically with the bass drum and bass player. With the parametric EQ on the FUZZ, you have 9 controls at your disposal to fully sculpt your tone and make sure the riffs you are laying down are NEVER lost in the mix!

A good fuzz and a good octave pedal go hand in hand. Jimi knew it. Stevie knew it. And you know it. If you want to put some purple in your haze, you're going to need an octave pedal and the octave circuit in the FUZZ is outstanding!
Covering everything from perfectly pure octave up to screaming splatting sonic mayhem, the octave circuit in the FUZZ is the perfect marriage of vintage and modern thanks to its unique octave BLEND control.
The BLEND control mixed your clean signal with the fuzz/octave signal so you can dial in precisely how much octave effect you want. Guys like Doyle Bramhall II use this to great effect by adding just a little octave to their sound which gives it a little "lift".
With the BLEND control fully counterclockwise, the octave circuit acts as a boost and is perfect for slamming the front of the fuzz circuit for more gain! Pro Tip! Boost + Fuzz Face = Tone Bender! This boost is also perfect for boosting the front of other pedals or just running as an always-on signal buffer/booster.
With the BLEND control fully clockwise, there is no clean blend so your signal is fully fuzzed out with however much fuzz/octave you have dialed in with the OCT control.

I purchased the Jackson Audio Fuzz Overdrive Boost recently, wow.. what an awesome pedal. It comes with two separate plug ins that change the different types of fuzz pedal styles and there are quite a few to choose from making it a very versatile pedal. Do yourself a favor and check one out, you’ll be glad you did.. I was pleasantly surprised, what a genius idea!
