Arcane Analog Buzzsaw - Buzzaround


Arcane Analog

The Buzzsaw is a modern take on the classic Baldwin Burns Buzzaround fuzz. The circuit remains true to the original but the optional additions of a master volume and a voltage converter provide the modern player with much more versatility and utility.

These pedals cut through a mix like a saw through bone. The Buzzsaw has a tight low end, fat mids and cutting sustain for days. The result is a thick and chewy fuzz that provides both vintage and modern fuzz sounds. These have the typical controls of the Buzzaround: Timbre (Tone), Balance (Bias) and Sustain (Fuzz) along with an optional Master Volume. The Master Volume allows the player to use the full range of sounds available without the potential for a huge unwanted increase in volume ocurring at higher gain settings.

The beating heart of the pedal consistis of three hand-selected NOS germanium transistors chosen to provide maximum fuzz while retaining note/chord clarity and rich harmonic content. The pedal uses only top quality components and sheilded wire for low noise operaton. These are all built on tagboard with wired leads for extra durability. Say no to PCB mounted pots!
