Mad Professor Fire Red Fuzz HW

Effect Pedal

Mad Professor builds high-end pedals, which is plain to see from the price range. Nevertheless, these compact devices are enjoying an increasing amount of popularity, a clear indication of the quality of their effects.

Classic fuzz pedals usually deliver a somewhat broken sound (sometimes you want precisely this) and can often be used only before an already distorted amp.

The Mad Professor Fire Red Fuzz is a very different gadget: fat fuzz from soft / dark to bright, piercing trebles, and always musical. It can be paired with a sustain which, even in higher pitch ranges, offers an incredible playing experience. The "different fuzz".

And it's still the favourite pedal on the board...!

Because I was so pleased with the Mad professor LGW I decided to try the FRF on spec and I ended up with another quality pedal that I'm very pleased with.

As a Fuzz the Tone knob is usable throughout the entire sweep and has a powerful impact on the sound. It changes the Fuzz from thick bass chug to cutting and is one of the best Tone knobs I have used.

I use the Fuzz Knob from 11~2 O'clock settings and again is useable throughout the sweep. At its lowest it does not go to completely clean, always retains some Fuzz in there, but at normal levels you can roll off with the Guitar Volume well.

But overall it just gives you the feeling of a solid chunky Fuzz that also sounds really good at high or low volume.

It's silicon based with an input impedance of 52K (low) so it can be put literally 'anywhere' in your chain. I found it sounds best placed near the end of the dirt section.

Pedals from Finland's proudest sound company - Mad Professor - are exceptionally well made, and presents more than you expect from a pedal. This little red thing is just fabulous! The rich fat fuzz goes beyond an ordinary fuzz face and also adds a more modern tone, which is adjustable from subtle to distinct and quite sharp. It adds soul to your guitar playing, make nu fuzz about it...
