Product OverviewVintage-sounding germanium Fuzz pedal, a legendary sound that helped shape a generation... Made with carbon comp resistors for a pure vintage sound !
There are many variables that determine the quality, sound and cleanability of a Germanium Fuzz pedal. We feel transistor choice is crucial, therefore we have searched and found the best and extremely rare germanium transistors ever made : the CV7003, military-spec OC44 germanium transistors. The CV7003 is extremely consistent as well as heat-resistant, much more than the AC128 and NKT275 transistors are, making our Fuzz Phrase stand out from its competition. Each individual transistor is measured for gain and leakage and then hand picked and matched through sound audition.
Just mess around with the guitar volume to find the sweet spots, from clean, to rude, to devastating!
Fuzz Phrase users : David Hidalgo, Dweezil Zappa, Greg Koch, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Daniel Lanois, Eivind Aarset, Gwyn Ashton, Julien Kasper..."The Fuzz Phrase has been with me on the road since I got it and I use it every night. It always sounds fantastic and is the epitome of what a fuzz should sound like. So many fuzz pedals don't seem to give you a tangible boost. You hit them and the sound just seems impossible to tame. The Fuzz Phrase is a no brainer. You hit it and it boosts your signal with a glorious fuzz onslaught !"
"I love the unique warmth and complex harmonics of the Fuzz Phrase. It makes even a small combo amp sound huge ! I compared it to my other fuzzes and it is by far the best sounding germanium fuzz in my house so it is going on my pedal board immediately." Julien Kasper
