Mad Professor Amplification Announces the Fuzz 32

A handwired germanium fuzz that will be limited to only 96 pieces.

Finland (February 13, 2020) -- Mad Professor Amplification, long standing and awarded pedal manufacturer, has a new very limited edition fuzz pedal released. Fuzz 32 pedal is in stock and available immediately.

Tone wise germanium fuzzes are the kind of pedals that every guitar player should have in their arsenal. However the vintage germanium fuzzes have their shortcomings and also the prices are out of reach for the most of us.

Mad Professor Fuzz 32 will deliver the tone of the best vintage fuzzes without the well known shortcomings. Fuzz 32 has added output so you can easily surpass the unity gain and boost your signal too even with the mildest amounts of fuzz. The added tone control, which you don’t see in vintage fuzzes, is very handy for brightening up the tone of a mild fuzz or taming down the over-the-top amounts of fuzz. Turning the tone control all the way up to the max will get you those bright and in-your-face kind off tones too when desired. One of the advantages also in the Fuzz 32 circuit is the possibility to place a buffer in front of it. This highly awaited feature makes it possible to place the Fuzz 32 anywhere in you signal chain, use it with wireless systems and experiment with boosters in front of it, as a few examples!

Designers at Mad Professor also innovated a really clever way to stabilize the Fuzz 32 circuit in a way that the vintage-germanium-transistor-consisting circuit is not as delicate to changes in temperature as the circuits are in old fuzzes. Vintage fuzzes are known to have a lot of tone variation depending on surrounding temperature. You can also power up the Fuzz 32 with the same 9V (negative tip) power supply you are using with most of your other pedals too.

”Something new in Mad Professor Fuzz 32 to the pedals alike, is the added boost which makes the pedal much more versatile in the levels of fuzz compared to vintage ones.” -says the designer, Jyrki Rahkola.

Mad Professor Fuzz 32 is hand wired in Finland and there is only 96 pc available. 32 of each color: Blue, Red and Turquoise. Name Fuzz32 comes from atomic number 32 in periodic table.

  • Learn how to use standard, drop D, and uncommon alternate tunings in drone contexts.

Playing a melody or solo with a “drone” means playing over just one note or, in some instances, one chord. Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
