60s buzz tones and beyond…

The Buzzard takes you on a fuzzy flight from wasp-like buzzes to thick and greasy fuzzes. Two NOS germanium transistors lie at the heart of this bird. Each transistor serves up its own flavour: the first, a dark and thick boost; the second, a super bright and buzzy full-on fuzz. These two sounds blend together with the BUZZ control, then the CONTOUR control sculpts both high and mid-range content of the tone. Two simple controls, coupled with the VOLUME, can create classic Fuzzrite, 60s bite; pseudo octave effects;  fuzzy filtered wah like sounds; dense, chewy distortion  and much more…


  • Hand selected NOS Germanium transistors
  • CITEC potentiometers
  • Carbon film resistors
  • Neutrik jack sockets
  • Heavy duty foot switch


  • BUZZ – Blends between the two fuzz sounds.
  • CONTOUR – Low pass filter that adjusts the high and mid-range content of the second (super bright) fuzz sound. Fully CCW is the darkest sound; fully CW the brightest. As the CONTOUR knob affects only the second fuzz sound, it has a greater effect when the BUZZ control is set past half way.
  • LEVEL – Sets the overall output level.


  • POWER: A standard 9 volt DC regulated power supply with a 2.1mm negative tip barrel plug or a 9 volt PP3 battery. If you intend on sharing the same powers supply with other pedals, please ensure it is one with isolated outputs. DO NOT DAISY CHAIN WITH OTHER PEDALS: THIS MAY DAMAGE YOUR BUZZARD.
  • DIMENSIONS (including knobs and jacks): 120x80x60mm
