SolidGoldFX Rosie Fuzz




Rosie is our reincarnation of the venerable MK II Tone Bender circuit optimized for modern performance while maintaining our favorite tonal characteristics of the original design. Unlike the temperamental germanium transistors used in the classic Tone Bender MK II circuit, Rosie utilizes a combination of JFET and select low gain, low noise silicon transistors, giving her plenty of reliably consistent punch and attack. A two-way tone toggle and external bias control expand on this stable foundation making it easy to dial in a broad range of textures, from thick and syrupy to chunky and aggressive. Rosie makes single coils sing and humbuckers bite, bringing forth the best from both types of pickups. In addition to adding great feel and dynamics, Rosie’s custom high impedance JFET input also ensures worry free performance by eliminating the possibility of any unwanted interaction with buffers or wahs. This means Rosie can be placed anywhere in your signal chain with no adverse tonal impact. If you are looking to capture the classic sounds of your early Zeppelin records but with 21st century stability, let Rosie take you all the way.

SolidGoldFX (about the BC183CS version)

The Custom Shop BC183 Rosie is a small batch specialized variation of our classic Rosie Fuzz. Utilizing a set of select low noise BC183 transistors, the Custom Shop BC183 Rosie has a powerfully thick voice perfect for chunky rhythm and hefty leads. With a noticeable bump in low mid content and a rounder top end the Custom Shop BC183 Rosie is a great choice for those looking for a slightly smoother take on the legendary Tone Bender MKII design. Like our original Rosie Fuzz this Custom Shop version also features a buffer friendly JFET input, two-way tone toggle, and external bias control making it easy to dial in a broad range of fuzzy textures.
