The creative Hot Wax Multi-Overdrive, which sounds good on bass as well as electric guitar, combines a full-range Crayon side and a classic 1970s reissue Hot Tubes side.
The Electro-Harmonix Hot Wax Multi-Overdrive is a combination of two other pedals that the company created, and it is also one of the few that is designed to sound good on bass as well as electric guitar. The right side of the pedal is the Crayon, which is a full range overdrive, different than most overdrives that emphasize the mids. Continue reading “Electro-Harmonix Hot Wax Multi-Overdrive”
The Pigtronix Fat Drive creates a pure analogue overdrive by using multiple gain stages that more closely resemble the way tubes operate, thus producing a more tube-like sound.
The Pigtronix Fat Drive pedal is designed to have a tube-like overdrive. It creates a modern, 100% analog style overdrive by using multiple gain stages that round and compress a signal in each stage, as it begins to clip. As a result, it more closely resembles the way that tubes operate, thus giving this pedal a more tube-like sound. Continue reading “Pigtronix Fat Drive”
The Full-Drive2 Mosfet features Overdrive and Boost channels, Volume and Tone controls, toggle switches for modes and overdrive types, and LED-lit foot buttons.
The Fulltone Full-Drive2 MOSFET is a two-channel overdrive pedal housed in a very sturdy, powder-coated Blue 16-gauge steel enclosure. The first channel is Overdrive, giving the player a clean boost, or light to medium overdrives while retaining your guitar’s tone. The second channel is the Boost, with its own separate distortion control and delivering medium to higher gains, and adding sustain to the signal.

The Spires Double Fuzz is two pedals in one: the Green Channel, which is a cranked fuzz effect, and the Red Channel, which has the classic two-transistor fuzz.
The Earthquaker Devices Spires Double Fuzz pedal is actually two different fuzz pedals in one box: the Green Channel and the Red channel. The Green Channel is a cranked fuzz effect inspired by the Rosac Electronic Nu-Fuzz and is a “sonic clone” of that pedal. With the Green Channel the fuzz is constant, and the Tone knob adjusts the brightness of the overall tone. Continue reading “Earthquaker Devices Spires Double Fuzz”
The uniquely-designed tube of the Fuzz Fiend protrudes from the unit, protected by roll bars, and using it as part of the circuit, the Fiend gets you from heavy fuzz to a cleaner tone, with just the volume knob.
The Friedman Fuzz Fiend Tube Fuzz is unique in that it is one of the few pedals that uses a real tube as part of its circuit. The Fuzz Fiend uses one 12AX7 tube to give the pedal it’s signature tone, and it has a FUZZ control and a VOLUME control. The Fuzz Fiend also has pretty extreme BASS, MID, TREBLE controls that can eliminate frequencies altogether, and really help you shape a unique sound, one not easily found elsewhere.

The Fulltone OF-2 Octafuzz Fuzz Pedal keeps things pretty simple with just Volume, Boost, one switch to change between FUZZ and OCTA, and a true bypass LED on/off light.
The Fulltone OF-2 Octafuzz Fuzz is an exact replica of the vintage Tycobrahe Octavia, and it’s the only copy of the pedal being made today. It has two modes: FUZZ and OCTA, and as expected, FUZZ is the normal fuzz effect. OCTA is the fuzz effect, mixed with an octave up effect. Continue reading “Fulltone OF-2 Octafuzz Fuzz Pedal”
On the small side, and using less power than most other pedals, the unique Fuzz Factory still offers a vintage sound, extensive range, and great control.
The Zvex Vexter Fuzz Factory is a rather colorful little pedal that is smaller than it looks. The Fuzz Factory uses two NOS ’60s germanium transistors for a smooth warm fuzz. Even though the more modern fuzz circuit isn’t modeled after any specific vintage fuzz, it still has a very vintage sound. Continue reading “Zvex Vexter Fuzz Factory Guitar Pedal”
