Visual Sound V2 Angry Fuzz Pedal Review
October 15, 2008
I found the Angry Fuzz to be incredibly flexible. Turning off the octave and cranking the fuzz offered a smooth, Big Muff-style fuzz, with tons of sustain for Frippertronic excursions, though it lacked some of the EH pedal’s low-end girth and articulation. Backing off the fuzz about halfway, I was able to clean up the sound with the guitar volume.
Turning up the octave knob after 10 o’clock reveals subtle changes in the amount of upper harmonics, with the effect quite evident past noon. Unlike many vintage fuzz units, the Angry Fuzz sounds are all smooth and quiet. If it lacks anything, it is the unpredictability and quirkiness that give old designs like the Fender Blender and Ampeg Scrambler their character. On the other hand, Angry Fuzz offers great sound, combined with reliability and dependable, repeatable performance. Angry or not, you may want to grab it for the octave alone. – MR

unpredictability and quirkiness floats your boat.
