Some of the greatest distorted guitar riffs and licks ever were created using the unmistakable sound of fuzz. Marty Robbins guitarist Grady Martin is the man credited with accidentally discovering fuzz back in 1961, when a dodgy preamp gave his guitar the classic distorted tone. Fast-forward a few years and pedals that replicated the eff ect, such as the Maestro Fuzz-Tone, Electro-Harmonix Big Muff and the Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Face were catching on with Keith Richards, Carlos Santana and David Gilmour and many others. Fuzz has come a long way since those early days, so here were looking at four modern pedals and the fuzzed-out craziness you can wring that from each of them. Ranging from smooth, brass-like sustained notes to shrill, teeth-grinding velcro fuzz tones, its all here. Lets dive in.
