Amptweaker BluesFuzz JR
The BluesFuzz Jr fuzz pedal uses a low gain germanium transistor with boost, mid EQ, and Tight attack switch.
The BluesFuzz Jr is based on the BluesFuzz Limited, a special 49 piece model we built back in 2014 to commemorate our 5th anniversary. Derived from our Pro series, the Tight control and Fat switches were re-configured into a 3-position Fat/Normal/Tight switch to dial in the attack of the notes from thick and heavy to aggressive and chunky. Since this model uses a low gain germanium transistor, an input boost is included to give thicker fuzz tones. And to help dial in the all important mid frequencies, there’s a Mid control that matches the tone of the original BluesFuzz when set in the middle. Our popular automatically adjusting bias on the Fuzz controls keeps the sweet spot at hand, and is especially nice for cleaner tones.
All Amptweaker fuzz pedals have a built-in ‘guitar-style’ impedance, which allows you to put any other pedals in front without the traditional issues associated with vintage fuzz pedals. That means it works fine with low impedance active guitar pickups too. Other features include true bypass switching, 9-18VDC operation, and a thumbscrew- removable bottom plate with special holes to even accommodate tie-wrap or screw-in pedalboard attachment methods.
