Rotosound reissues their Vintage Fuzz Pedal using the same circuit configuration as the 1960’s original, with modern resistors and capacitors.

The original prototype pedals were only ever available in limited numbers and never released for general sales. 

 

Rotosound have reinvented this pedal with Dr. Barry R. Pyatt. The pedal is designed to be faithful to the original, with the important active components being genuine vintage germanium stock, according to the company.

 

The re-issue circuit, like the original uses a Darlington Pair for high gain input, which drives a compensated ‘fuzz’ transistor. The Fuzz Control is designed to change the amount of drive from a soft crunch to a gruff growl whilst still retaining the signature germanium roundness. The Treble Control then varies the ratio of bass to treble allowing a good range from muddy to crisp. The Volume Control alters the output level and the pedal is switched on using dedicated contacts on the ‘instrument’ input jack. The re-issue pedal now features “true bypass” switching to be compatible with contemporary pedal architecture.

 

Pricing & Availability:

The pedal (RRP £250, $379) is encased in a pressed steel box finished in a gloss silver hammer powder coating. It will be shipping November/ December 2012.
