A Responsive, Musical Fuzz Pedal with Lots of Tonal Tweakability!
Jimi Hendrix, Eric Johnson, and David Gilmour...the intriguing sonic span from these guitarists is what Brian Wampler had in mind with the Wampler Velvet Fuzz pedal. Picture this pedal as a dynamic EL34-tube-infused stack of potent tone perfect for gripping leads and wailing licks, and then let your axe do the rest of the talking. This baby is equipped with volume, fuzz, and brightness controls for you to roll in a wide range of sound from a beefy fuzz to a riveting overdrive/distortion that'll be sure to steal ears from afar. A Big/Tight toggle switch in the middle gives you two overall settings to play around with, to get your preferred style of fuzz for the occasion.
Brian Wampler demonstrates the classic fuzz the Velvet Fuzz can deliver:
Dials and Controls
Your Velvet Fuzz pedal features three simple controls to dial in the amount of fuzz, distortion, or overdrive to fuel your signal. The volume control manages your signal's decibel level, and the brightness knob helps you control the bite or mellowness of your output. The fuzz knob acts like a gain control to dial in the amount of breakup you're looking for. These three simple controls allow for a wide span of tonal exploration that'll keep your ears hungry for more fuzz, performance after performance.
Voicing Switch: Go Big or Go Tight
In the middle of your Wampler Velvet Fuzz pedal is a toggle switch with two universal voicing settings: Big or Tight. When the toggle switch is flipped up in the Big position, your signal tends to have a beefier, spongier tonal contour, emphasizing those lower frequencies with plenty of compression for that classic saturated fuzz. When you flip this switch down into the Tight position, you get a more dynamic, less compressed effect with tube-amp-like distortion that lets your axe's tone come through more -- great for those times when you might want to roll back on the fuzz. This toggle switch gives this pedal twice as much tonal reach, resulting in more gig-worthy sounds.
Handmade True Bypass Circuitry
The Velvet Fuzz was hand-built using choice film capacitors and resistors to give your signal as much love as it deserves. Brian Wampler's keenness for accurate tone rings true though this powerful fuzz pedal with every note you play. Your Velvet Fuzz pedal utilizes true bypass circuitry, so your tone remains completely untouched when you power this baby down in your signal chain.
