At least thats what this pedal would have us believe because its knobs are HUGE! In reality though, it's what it does with it that counts and the Fuzz Bender from Keeley doesn't disappoint.
Fuzzes tend to fall into one of two camps, silicon and germanium. The later is normally found in classic fuzzes and is slightly softer sounding than its aggressive silicon cousin. Robert Keeley however has gone down the route of having ones cake and eating it by putting 3 transistors in this pedal which are indeed a mix of the various aforementioned types giving a very unique sound and feel.
What's more, control over the fuzz's bias means those hidden spluttery tones are now accessible from the top of the pedal if you feel like having a good time.
