Maxon Fuzz Elements FW10 Wind



Modeled after the legendary sounds of late 60's British fuzz tones, the FW10's classic circuit design provides a smooth, mid-gain fuzz effect that is rich in harmonic overtones.

In VINTAGE mode the FW10 offers classic 60's fuzz, while HOT mode provides increased gain and additional low-end response.

BUFFER ON/OFF switch engages output buffer when set to ON.  Buffer setting converts signal to low impedance, providing a smoother, more authentic reproduction of original guitar tone.

True Bypass Switching lets your instrument's signal pass through a non-electronic bypass line when the effect is disengaged, feeding your amp with direct, unaltered signal from your instrument.

LED to indicate bypass/effect and battery condition for trouble-free performance.

Operates with 9V battery or standard AC adaptor for 9V (not included).

Made in Japan.
