Description
Rotosound is thrilled to reissue their legendary Vintage Fuzz Pedal, using the same essential circuit configuration as the original 1960s design combined with modern resistors and capacitors. This new fuzz pedal combines yesterday's mojo and tone flavor with the reliability and stability of today's component technology.

The original prototype pedals were only available in limited numbers and never released for general sales. Nonetheless, these pedals were found all over the place—there is even a picture of Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page playing one.

Rotosound have reinvented this celebrated pedal together with fabled guitar tone-tweaker Dr. Barry R. Pyatt. The pedal is faithful to the original, with the important active components being genuine vintage germanium stock, thus preserving the authentic sound of the original.

The reissue circuit, just like the original, uses a Darlington Pair for high-gain input, which drives a compensated ‘fuzz' transistor. The Fuzz Control changes the amount of drive from a soft crunch to a gruff growl while retaining the signature germanium roundness. The Treble Control then varies the ratio of bass to treble, allowing a wide tonal range, from muddy to crisp. The Volume Control alters the output level, and to maintain cleanliness of sound, the pedal is switched on using dedicated contacts on the input jack. The reissue pedal now features true-bypass switching to be compatible with contemporary pedal architecture.

Renowned as one of the easiest effect pedals to use when first launched in the UK, its simplicity was always one of its main attractions as well the exceptional tone and smooth sustain. The new pedal retains all these original qualities with the addition of contemporary controllability and consistency.

The pedal is encased in a pressed steel box finished in a gloss silver hammer powder coating, again mimicking the traditional Rotosound pedal. It is extremely robust, durable and hardwearing and in keeping with their tradition of manufacturing in the UK, the pedal is made at Rotosound's factory in Sevenoaks, Kent under the strictest quality control.
If it's true vintage germanium fuzz you seek, then you have found your Holy Grail in this re-release of the Rotosound Fuzz Pedal.
