The fuzz was the first distortion pedal type ever. To this day, the retro sound of these vintage pedals from the 1960s exerts a magical attraction on guitarists. For the FZ-1w, numerous pedal legends from this era were analysed in detail. Combined with Waza craftsmanship, the all-analog pedal delivers the inspiring sound, original feel and unique vibe of the fuzz classics in a reliable modern design. As with all Waza Craft pedals, the pedal uses only top-of-the-line components for that signature sound.
Two modes are available to the user. With the Vintage mode, the floor pedal produces the classic fuzz sound, extended with more gain and expressive variety. The sound character is scratchy and assertive without being harsh. In addition, the sound can be adjusted seamlessly from strong fuzz to crunch to clean via the guitar's volume control.
The Modern mode offers a more refined and versatile fuzz sound with present mids and a more powerful sound - ideal for modern music styles. The gain reserves are greater than in Vintage mode. Turning the Fuzz knob to 3 o'clock and beyond gives a full, singing sustain for inspiring solos. In addition, the Tone control is tuned differently so that you can adjust the brightness without affecting the mid frequencies. This way, the tone carries through well in any setting. As a booster pedal, the FZ-1W delivers a full, powerful and mid-emphasised sound in Modern mode.
