The key to our Custom Silicon Fuzz Pedal “Fuzz 292″ is a 3-way voicing switch; treble-boosted fuzz, a standard moderate gain voicing, and high gain fuzz-fever freakout. So at the flick of a switch, the Fuzz 292 changes it’s overall character and how it reacts to your picking and guitar volume knob adjustments.
In addition to the (naturally necessary) volume control and 3-way voicing switch, we’ve added a tone and gain control.
– The “bias” control shapes the character of the fuzz, bending the sound from a smooth, overdrive-like fuzz into a gated, “ripping velcro” fuzz tone (a la some of Homme’s best solo tones in QOTSA.)
– The “Gain” control acts just like the volume pot on your guitar – for a fuzz, this means it smooths the tone, providing a more overdrive-like quality. Or crank it for a blast of 60’s/70’s retro fuzz fry!
