That’s what JAM pedals must have said the day they perfected this powerful purple stomp box!
Bringing together the awesome sound of classic fuzz, the more delicate, dynamic tones of a germanium fuzz, and the beautiful distortion of a Big Muff, JAM have somehow built a pedal that seems to do everything at once without breaking a sweat.
Any guitarist who’s had the pleasure of owning a JAM will tell you that they’re well worth the price.
That couldn’t be more true when it comes to the Eureka, because this Boutique Fuzz pays for itself with its inimitable sound. With three switchable low-end modes and a lightning bolt setting for those gated, spluttery tones, the Eureka is pulling none of its punches.
Classic, mass-produced pedals like the Boss FZ-1w are all well and good. They’ll certainly provide high-quality effects that’ll sound great in the hands of a good guitar player, but it’s for those really nuanced, unique sounds that people come to boutique pedals.
There are a lot of pedals out there competing for the title of best fuzz and though it’s far from the most famous, the Eureka has the potential to be a major competitor. Not only does it have an incredible sound of its own, but it also meshes really nicely with other pedals, adding a real punch to just about any overdrive it’s paired with.
Of course, price is always worth considering. The Eureka retails at around $180-200 which is not bad by the standards of these smaller, more hand-crafted brands. Of course, you certainly don’t need to spend that much to get a decent fuzz, but you do if you want to get this kind of dynamic fuzz sound.
And what exactly is that sound?
