Formula B Maestra Fuzz-Tone


Formula B

The daddy of all stompboxes: the first commercially produced transistor-based guitar effect pedal and also the first fuzz box.

First made in 1962, it took until 1965 to catch on when Keith used one on Satisfaction – and the world of guitar tone was changed forever. The FZ-1a used three germanium transistors to amplify and clip the guitar’s signal creating fuzz, glorious fuzz…"

It is alive again: the Formula B "Maestra" Fuzz Tone pedal with modern upgrades:

  • True bypass footswitch 
  • On/off bright LED
  • Inside power DC/DC  adapter ( 9v Dc / 1.5v dc )
  • Standard power input DC connector
