Product Overview

The search for the perfect fuzz can be an exercise in frustration, but not with the Wampler Fuzztration Fuzz and Octave Pedal. On one hand, there's always the desire to emulate the classic, vintage-inspired tones like the Rock Gods before us. They used what was available at the time to forge some of the most memorable songs in history with unbeatable sustain.

On the other hand, there are players who desire to break outside of the norm and push their own boundaries, using fuzzes that are over the top, like a tsunami of fuzz ready to envelop their guitar's signal. Despite the already incredible credentials some fuzzes have by being on such iconic songs, they weren't without their shortcomings. Many of those pedals were simple and lacked some EQ controls that could really make a great pedal extraordinary -- or not so much, due to the manufacturer using whatever parts they had available, which led to major part tolerance issues leading to each of the pedals sounding potentially drastically different.

The three-band EQ gives full sculpting capability to dial in whatever tone you want without needing magic vintage mojo. The voicing switch can take it from classic, tight response to dark, sludgy and writhing with a depth to it like piping hot magma bubbling just below the surface.

The Fuzztration isn't a pedal designed to really play "nice." It's brash, raspy, doomy, in-your-face fuzz from top to bottom. This is not to say it can't get some classic Floyd sounds, but this isn't just another classic with some added EQ options. It's rough, it's gruff, and it's like an angry lion trying to bust out of its cage. When the search for the perfect fuzz leads to a plethora of choices, the end of your Fuzztration comes when everything is packed into one, do-it-all fuzz box. Want the classic sounds? Done. How about some raunchy doom metal or sludge rock? Yep, it does that too

The volume knob is pretty self-explanatory, but it controls the overall output of the Fuzztration. The Bass controls the overall low-end response of the Fuzztration. Noon is standard, counterclockwise it removes some of the bottom end that warrants a more searing tone, where taking it clockwise will increase the bottom end tremendously, going from a raspy fuzz to full-on doom machine. Mids controls the mid presence of the circuit. Center is fairly flat, counter-clockwise will scoop the mids and become much more aggressive and cutting, almost distortion-like. Clockwise will add in some mids, which helps combat the scoop that lead many of those old classic fuzzes to be lost in the mix with the full band. The treble control effects the overall high-end and brightness of the circuit and has a tremendous effect on the overall way of shaping the tone of the fuzz.

Noon is standard, going counter-clockwise will yield in a much thicker, saturated fuzz tone that sounds like a wall of wool coming from the speakers. Clockwise will increase the brightness, and thus the raspiness and spit of the fuzz depending on where you have the voicing switch set. The Voicing switch gives you two very different but usable sets of tones. On the Tight setting, it has a classic, more modern sound that's...well, tighter, less sag and acts more as a fuzzy distortion that totals up to a sum of a whole lot more than that magical number of 3.14.

The Open setting is much woolier, darker, saggier, and an overall thicker and sludgier fuzz tone. The huge Fuzz knob controls the overall amount of fuzzy goodness. This pedal isn't designed for sparkly edge-of-breakup tones, so even fully counterclockwise it yields a thick, sputtering result that works great for alt-rock and grunge. Turning the fuzz knob clockwise unleashes a torrent of fuzz, leading to massive sustain combined with some compression, classic velcro sputters and everything in between.

NOT JUST ANOTHER CLONE
This is not just another clone with fancy graphics… it’s got that familiar tone, but once you add in the secret Wampler trademark 3 band EQ you have the most brutal yet controllable fuzz you can imagine.

YOU WANT OCTAVE?
We all love an analog Octave feature on our fuzzes, but imagine one that you can put either pre or post gain… if you’ve never tried putting it in the other place to what you are used to, prepare to have your socks blown clean off.

OPEN OR TIGHT
Two clipping modes make the Fuzztration one of the most versatile original fuzz circuits out there… One of them is gives you that beautifully horrible fat width, destroying the first three rows and the other is just sustain… smoothness and, yes, even more sustain…
