Fuzz (1976)

One of the best Fuzz pedals we personally have heard! 

Every man to his taste, so perhaps ours does not resemble to yours but from the hundreds (or thousands?) Fuzz pedals we have heard in our lives, the Top Gear Fuzz stands out. There is something about the organic sound of this pedal that simply speaks to us, and the subtleness of the Boost knob which offers a great array of gain levels. The Top Gear Fuzz is built after the infamous Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face (we’ve got some of these on the website too), it uses BC184C silicon transistors and powered by a 9V battery. Unfortunately the company shut down long time ago so your only address for one is the second hand market. It amazes us how these simple analog circuits that shaped the sound of Rock still stay relevant today. Check out the Top Gear Fuzz and be sure to compare it to other iconic Fuzz pedals from the same era like the Dallas-Arbiter and Crest Audio Fuzz Faces, and the Colorsound Supa Tonebender.
