Although it makes use of two highly prized New Old Stock sixties Germanium transistors, the Fuzz Factory isn’t a revamp of any classic fuzz pedal design. Instead what you get is a wild beast of a fuzzbox with five knobs to tame it (or not!).
While it can still amply do the conventional thing with harmonically rich edgy fuzz, the Fuzz Factory’s true forté is unbridled sonic terrorism, with staccato-gated fuzz, squeals, howls and resonant droning feedback that you can tune to pitch. Very cool. The ideal tool for the sort of a player who is on his knees at the end of the set manipulating knobs to create a cacophony.
PROS: Versatile. Capable of sounding out of control.
CONS: Careful knob positioning is required.
