JAM Pedals Fuzz Phrase Limited Germanium Fuzz Pedal

No longer available at zZounds
Point-to-point wiring, legendary transistors, a leather enclosure -- what more could you ask for? The Fuzz Phrase brings the germanium experience in style.

As JAM Pedal's stock of Fuzz Phrase-compatible CV7003s is gradually depleting, they are proud to re-introduce it, celebrating its uniqueness and scarcity with point-to-point wiring housed in a luxurious leather enclosure.

The most crucial ingredient when it comes to a Germanium Fuzz pedals' quality, sound and clean-ability, is transistor choice. In JAM's experience there's nothing quite like the CV7003, military-spec OC44 germanium transistors.

The few-and-far-between CV7003 are extremely consistent and heat-resistant, much more so than the AC128 and NKT275 transistors, placing the Fuzz Phrase in a league of its own. The CV7003s consistency is so dependable that an external bias pot is rendered unnecessary. You are likely to never have to adjust the bias on your pedal!

Each individual transistor is measured for gain and leakage and then hand picked and matched through sound audition.

Along with the use of carbon comp resistors and tropical fish capacitors, the result is pure vintage fuzz goodness! Just mess around with the guitar volume to find the sweet spots, from clean, to rude, to devastating!


1. Level controls the Fuzz Phrases output
2. Gain sets the amount of gain
3. Internal trimmer biases the transistors. JAM Pedals recommend leaving it as it ships!

1. True Bypass
2. Works with 9V battery or 9V DC adaptor (tip-negative)
If you have your pedal mounted on a pedal board and keep it plugged in at all times, use the small DC plug provided on the power jack, when not playing to prevent battery drainage
Caution: this circuit uses positive ground. Therefore you cannot connect this pedal to any type of chained power supply linked with other common DC-powered pedals, unless the power supply unit features separate isolated DC outputs.
3. Power consumption: 3 mA
4. Dimensions (jacks, pots etc. included): 7.5 x 12 x 5.6 cm / 2.9 x 4.7 x 2.2 inches
5. Weight: 300g / 0.66 lbs.
