Big Knob Pedals Fuzz Barn - Germanium Fuzz with Self-Oscillation and Feedback


Big Knob Pedals

The Fuzz Barn provides everything you need from a fuzz and more. From classic Hendrix-sounding "Fuzz Face" tones to over-the-top feedback squeals and insane self-oscillation, you'll find yourself spending hours tweaking the 5 knobs as they all inter-relate to shape the nearly infinite amount of sounds this box can produce. Two AC128 germanium transistors of the old-school variety (these were some used in the original Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Faces) supply the classic fuzz sound and other more modern high-quality components keep the noise level down to a minimum, a must-have in a monster pedal packing this much gain.

"Fuzz Barn" is 100% hand-wired and made with only top quality components, including a heavy-duty die-cast Hammond case and an Electro-Harmonix 3PDT true bypass footswitch. Like all my "Big Knob" branded pedals, it was created first and foremost for my own use as a gigging guitarist. I guarantee the quality in all my pedals, and accept all returns, no questions asked.

2015-06-116.5/10  Veroboard clone of FFactory, annoyingly difficult to get right and annoyingly wide on pedal board. Some nice sounds if you duct tape it!!!...
