Fuzzrocious Pedals Announces the Blast Furnace

Fuzzrocious Pedals Announces the Blast Furnace

An original gated fuzz with an independent short-timed delay.

Mount Laurel, NJ (May 1, 2017) -- After an unveiling at NAMM, Blast Furnace is now for sale exclusively through Chicago Music Exchange and worldwide through all dealers on June 18, 2017.

Blast Furnace is an original gated fuzz touting a big, open sound free of tone tampering. There is a toggle that switches over to a heavy, semi-mid scooped sound that excels with chords and chugs. There is an internal trimpot that allows you to change the stock tone setting, if you’re feeling tweaky.

Just having an original fuzz wasn’t enough. We expanded the sound possibilities by adding a short-timed delay (via the left momentary footswitch). When activated, and depending on where the repeats pot is set, the user can add anything from one repeat to swirling, destructive oscillation. By removing one’s foot from the left footswitch, the delay goes away. You can accentuate your sound by adding some girth to the fuzz. There is also a trimpot to adjust the delay time if you don’t like where we set it. It’s cool, you can totally change it.

There’s more...the delay can be used without the fuzz! Pair the delay with your clean tone or other pedals to expand their sound too.

Blast Furnace boasts the following:

  • Gated fuzz with bypassable tone control
  • Utiity delay that can be used with or without the fuzz
  • Handmade and handpainted by Fuzzrocious in-house

Fuzzrocious Pedals works hand-in-hand with notable acts like Queens of the Stone Age, Fall Out Boy, Jenny Lewis, Zac Brown Band, Minus The Bear, Russian Circles, Brand New, and Neurosis.

Blast Furnace sells at $180 USD.

A technicolor swirl of distortion, drive, boost, and ferocious fuzz.

Finding just-right tones, while rewarding, might demand patience from less assured and experienced drive-pedal users. Tone control could be more nuanced.

The Danelectro Nichols 1966, in spite of its simplicity, feels and sounds like a stompbox people will use in about a million different ways. Its creator, Steve Ridinger, who built the first version as an industrious Angeleno teen in 1966, modestly calls the China-made Nichols 1966 a cross between a fuzz and a distortion. And, at many settings, it is most certainly that.
