You are looking at a Reproduction of the British made Marshall Supa Fuzz. The main production run of the Supa Fuzz was built by Sola Sound in 1966 through 1967/68 and was made almost in exactly the same way as the Sola Sound MkII. The only difference between the two is the input and output caps are 10uf instead of 5uf this gives the pedal more mid range than the MkII. The voltage filter caps also have different values.

The original Supa Fuzz was used by many famous players such as Pete Townsend in the 60's and by Eric Clapton with Cream just to name a few.

The Supa Fuzz is considered one of the best by many fuzz users. With its sonic capabilities, huge amounts of woolly fuzz, more mid range, tons of sustain and it's ability to control the amount of fuzz with the guitars volume.

This reproduction has the exact same component values as the original Supa Fuzz of the 60's.

The only mod I did is add a bias trim pot to the outside of the pedal to adjust the level of voltage going to the transistors as you know germanium's are temperature sensitive. This also allows for more control in shaping the sonic fuzz tones dramatically.

The pedal is equipped with 3 AC125 Germanium Transistors. These are very similar to the more expensive OC75's.

Each transistor is carefully tested for the correct gain and the least amount of leakage to create the exact tone character and breakup of the original units. Since I don't own an original I use the D*A*M Tone Bender the next best thing for tuning these pedals in.

The enclosure is a die-cast aluminum enclosure that has been Powder Coated with a tough Silver Hammerite finish then silk-screened.

Measures 4.75"H x 2.56"W x 1.56"D

Features:

  • Deka-ware vintage style chicken head knobs not the cheep china knock offs.
  • Transistor Bias pot on outside.
  • 2PDT foot switch for true bypass.
  • Alpha 16mm pots used throughout.
  • Vishay/philips BC electrolytic caps.
  • Vishay MKT metalized poly film caps very similar to the vintage Mullard caps.
  • Vishay carbon film resistors used for a quieter operation compared to carbon comps.
  • Cable used on all input and output connections to reduce noise.
