Big Joe Stomp Box Company Introduces Two New Freakshow Fuzz Pedals

The new fuzz pedals come in germanium and silicon flavors.

Shelton, CT (July 27, 2018) -- Big Joe Stomp Box Company is announcing the release of two new fuzz pedals. The brand new Freakshow Fuzz pedals come in two different configurations, one with a germanium transistor and the other with silicon and will be available on Halloween 2018.

The Freakshow Germanium Fuzz is highly responsive, fat sounding, and harmonically-rich. It features two 1960s NOS matched transistors that produce a perfect vintage-style fuzz that one would expect from such a pedal.

The silicon version is the way to go for players seeking more assertive-sounding fuzz. It’s brighter overall, has a modern sound, increased gain, and is tailor-made for more aggressive styles of music.

Both pedals feature external bias and trim controls, offering flexibility with symmetry, gain structure, and clipping. A selectable input impedance buffer circuit offers a brighter sound, but also helps remove high-end roll off and oscillation that can occur when Fuzz is not placed first in the signal chain.

Each Freakshow Fuzz pedal carries with it a specific voicing that is well-suited for various musical styles. They also have enough flexibility to be fine tuned and tailored to the individual player’s needs, with respect to both sound and signal chain preferences.
