Rotosound has announced the re-issue of their Vintage Fuzz Pedal.
It uses the same circuit configuration as the 1960s original design, combined with modern resistors and capacitors. The re-issue circuit, like the original uses a Darlington Pair for high gain input, which drives a temperature compensated ‘fuzz’ transistor.
The Fuzz Control can then govern changes in the amount of drive from a soft crunch to a gruff growl. The Treble Control then varies the ratio of bass to treble allowing a range from muddy to crisp. The Volume Control alters the output level and to maintain cleanliness of sound, the pedal is switched on using dedicated contacts on the ‘instrument’ input jack.
The pedal is encased in a pressed steel box finished in a gloss silver hammer powder coating, mimicking the traditional Rotosound pedal.
