BOSS FZ-1w

FZ-1w … No Not That One

Yes this is the new fuzz from BOSS and no it’s nothing to do with the old FZ-1 satisfaction fuzz.
This is an entirely new design, nothing to do with any previous pedal and that in itself is new for the Waza range.

So we have three knobs and two channels but what’s interesting is when you swap between the vintage and modern, the tones change AND the way the controls react change. On the vintage mode, where you place the tone control determines where the midrange sits and indeed how much midrange there is. On the modern mode the midrange is always prominent no matter where the midrange sits. Also the sustain is boosted massively on the modern mode but on the vintage its almost non existent … just like a vintage fuzz
