Boss FZ-5 Fuzz Pedal

This pedal replicates the tones of 3 of rock's most famous fuzzes -- the Maestro, Fuzz Face, and Octavia. It's perfect for banging out tunes in the garage.

A distorted blast from the past! The Boss FZ-5 is a modern pedal built for the modern guitarist, but the sounds you can get from the FZ-5 are pure retro. Looking back at the glorious rock sounds of the '60s and '70s, the FZ-5 recreates its vintage fuzz through Boss state-of-the-art COSM technology.

Recall the fuzz-filled flavors of classic pedals, such as the Maestro FZ-1A, Fuzz Face and Octavia pedals, and kick 'em into overdrive with the FZ-5's Boost knob. Boss' proprietary COSM technology allows guitar players to recreate classic fuzz Boost control for more aggressive tone. The FZ-5 is the perfect weapon for players wanting to beef up their rigs with classic retro fuzz artillery.

I have a Dunlop JH fuzz and this FZ-5 with its three non-Dunlop emulations. All four are different. The Maestro setting was so off the wall that I had ZZsounds replace the pedal. What I ended up with is a Maestro setting that at least doesn't totally cut out but who can tell the difference. If you want fuzz know what fuzz you want, they are all different.
