New Germanium Fuzz V2 From Buffalo FX

Buffalo FX have updated their Germanium Fuzz pedal.

Toulouse, France (July 29, 2013) -- The V2 follows on from the ltd edition 2012 Germanium Fuzz and once again delivers the classic germanium fuzz tones we love from the late 60’s and 70’s.

“The response to the V1 was great, everyone loved it” says Steve, “After they all went I was getting emails asking if I could build some more so I started looking for transistors that would work well and finally settled on the Texas 2N404’s. They have great clean-up, and plenty of punch, ideal for stage use. There are a lot of ‘warm’ fuzz’s around but they get lost in the mix easily, the V2 cuts through more”

Featuring external bias and pre-gain controls, the Germanium Fuzz V2 offers greater versatility allowing easier integration with your guitar and amplifier. Modern features include super bright low current LED and 9v centre negative power socket.  Top mount jacks save pedal board real estate while a side access battery compartment prevents hunting for screwdrivers.

Each pedal is powder coated, screen printed and hand wired by Steve using the highest quality materials and components.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
