Blue Skool Records Phozz


Classic Germanium Fuzz Face with a special bias knob.  This beast is true to the original Fuzz Faces from the era of Hendrix and Cream, right down to the New-Old-Stock (NOS) Germanium Transistors which are hand selected, tested, and finally ear tested in their final circuit to ensure that every pedal sounds like the most magical fuzz you have ever played.  Unlike Silicon transistor fuzz faces which can be edgy and harsh, Germanium yields a creamy fuzz with the ability to clean up by rolling off the volume on your guitar.  All of our Germanium fuzzes are ear tested and tweaked to provide the most possible tone and sustain as well as the ability to clean up the tone using the guitar's volume knob.  This magical pedal is just like the Phuket Phozz, but with the addition of one switch for increased output and gain, often called the "Roger Mayer Mod"

  • Volume - controls the overall output of the pedal

  • Bias - We set this where it "should" be, but feel free to tweak this knob to unlock secret sounds.  Do be aware though, with this knob all the way to the left or right will make the pedal sound broken.  The pedal is not broken, but rather mis-biased and some like that sound.  One extreme should be quieter, and yield a sputtery fart tone, while the other extreme will be louder with more midrange.  We suggest finding the sweet spot where the note sustains the longest, yet cleans up with the volume control.

  • Fuzz - controls the amount of fuzz.  We suggest setting this all the way up, and using you volume control to adjust the amount of fuzz.  Also, minor tweaks to this knob will cause large changes in the saturation level of the fuzz.
