Vick Audio Pagan Fuzz


The Pagan Fuzz is based on the Astro-Tone Fuzz produced by the Astro Amp/Universal Amplifier Corporation in‘66 and ’67.  While I loved a lot of the sonic characteristics of the original units I found them a bit too bright and trebly for my taste.  With a couple simple modifications to the original circuit I came up with a design that allows for a greater bass response while retaining the overall tonal characteristics of the original units.  The Pagan Fuzz provides a deep, rich, aggressive fuzz with a wide range of tonal possibilities.  This is a 60’s style fuzz that adds grittiness and punch while remaining balanced and defined.

As with the original units your guitars output should be set near maximum to provide a strong signal to the unit.
