The term Fuzz has become very generic over the years, even the difference between a fuzz face and Big Muff is fairly large but when we start to look at more gated high gain fuzzes featuring octave switching it becomes an entire different ball game.
The Vezzpa is definitely of the later and purposely so. Beetronics amusingly refer to the tone as "wasp like" and to be fair to them this is pretty accurate at high gain settings, however when you turn the sustain down the pedal becomes spitty and poppy ... not unlike a Vespa Scooter ... you see what they did there!?
Very clever use of the footswitch gives the player lots of options via different presses for example with the pedal engaged hit the the switch twice quickly to switch the upper octave on/off, Beetronics calls this "Stinger Mode" . Another great idea is when the pedal is bypassed, if you press and hold the footswitch the pedal will only engage until you release it (momentary mode). Of course its also possible to use this just like a normal pedal by just using the switch as normal to turn the pedal on/off.
All in all this is a great new addition to the fuzz world which we're pleased to bring you on release day!
