Wampler Fuzztration Octave/Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal
Killer Fuzzy Tone
Wampler gave this down and dirty pedal all you need when it comes to fuzzing up your tone. There are two types of fuzz to choose from: "tight" and "open". Tight affords a muffled tone with compact, reverberating fuzz that seems to surround you. Open is a little more dialed back, giving you more spacious fuzz that allows more tone to shine through. When you throw in the octave circuit and mess with the order of the two, you'll find some other worldly sounds.
Despite many, many variations on fun fuzz tone from this pedal, the controls are not at all overwhelming. There are two metallic footswitches at the bottom that engage/bypass the fuzz circuit and turn the octave circuit on/off. The octave can be used on its own as well. There are black knobs to control the master volume and the 3-band EQ, including bass, mid, and treble. The largest and most important black knob is the Fuzz knob which filters in however much fuzz you can handle. The two small metal switches above the knobs switch the order of fuzz and octave, and change the nature of the fuzz from tight to open.
It doesn't hurt when a pedal has some super cool graphics on it and the Fuzztration has the type that makes it hard to look away. The large square box has a black base covered in a ridged face. And speaking of face, there's a clearly frustrated, screaming man's face dead center on this pedal. The Fuzztration name is laid over it in white, with a gnarly red heartbeat monitor line horizontal across the middle. There's nothing else to say about it besides - sick.
