Fuzz PedalClassic sounds thanks to the most modern technology!

There has long been a whole gaping in the BOSS pedal range: No fuzz pedal!

Thanks to Roland/Boss's years of modelling experience (it is the first company to have worked with Digital Modeling, the VG-8 Virtual Guitar System 1995), these three sounds are different from the originals in only one aspect: the price is much lower!

  • Vintage sound of the sixties
  • 3 Classical Fuzz sounds in one pedal
  • COSM precise modelling of Maestro FZ-1 A, Fuzz Face and Octavia
  • BOOST control for more distortion
  • Typical BOSS robust processing
  • Weight: 0.4 kg
  • Dimensions (TT): 73 x 129 x 59 mm

Versatile twisting

Fenderfreak, 11.11.2009
The number of effect pedals, which convert a clear guitar signal into a more or less brachial tone, is barely manageable today. I wanted a pedal that reproduced the sound of rock bands of the 1960s. In the past, these parts were called distortion, now fuzz, to distinguish them from the distortion and overdrive pedals (because these are actually distortion).

So I wanted a distortion and I have the FZ5 of Boss added. Featuring the three legendary distortion models in one package, the Maestro FZ-1A Fuzz Tone, Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face and Roger Mayer's Octavia Fuzz.

The FZ5 is super-easy to operate: the middle knob is used to set the instrument type, the right knob controls the output level of the signal, and the right controls the amount of distortion. The FZ5 can go beyond the original by simply adjusting the right knob over the center position. The sound that these distortion types produce is nowadays needed, but offers a nice change at the Solospiel.

Chords with these parts, be it Orginal or FZ5, rather muddy. Before a distorted tube amplifier or a carefully set overdrivepedel planted, one can spice up the sound again. It is also worthwhile to experiment with the volume control and the tone control of the guitar.

If you are looking for a versatile, low-priced and good-sounding distortion pedal, the FZ5 is very well served. However, an external power supply is recommended in view of the relatively high power consumption.
