Fuzz is intended to recreate the classic 1960’s tone of an overdriven tube amp combined with torn speaker cones. Old school guitar players (like Link Wray) would use a screwdriver to poke several holes through the paperboard part of the guitar amp speaker to achieve a similar sound. Some fuzz box pedals include:

  • Z.Vex Fuzz Factory
  • Effector 13 Soda Meiser
  • Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face
  • Electro-Harmonix Big Muff
  • Boss FZ-5 Fuzz

Famous songs using the fuzz effect:

  • “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones 
  • “Purple Haze” by Jimi Hendrix
