Smitty Pedals

The new Smitty Pedals MAELSTROM FUZZ is based on the Maestro FZ-1A Fuzz-Tone. My version uses modern high quality components and is modified so it runs on a 9V battery instead of the single AA battery that the original used.

As with the original FUZZ-TONE the best way to use this pedal is to crank both the volume and attack up to 10 and adjust the fuzz level with your guitar's volume knob.

Controls:

  • ATTACK Pot - bias for the second transistor and basically adjusts how quickly the fuzz gates.
  • VOLUME - Adjusts the overall volume of the pedal.

Features:

  • Features a matched set of 3 PNP Germanium 2N404A Transistors.
  • Alpha pots and switch.
  • Hand-wired, point-to-point circuit board.
  • True Bypass Switching
