Heather Brown Electronicals Launches the Sensation Fuzzdrive

A blend of fuzz and overdrive that attempts to combine punchiness and warmth, without sacrificing body or getting too “fizzy.”


Fuzz pedals provide great warmth, but obliterating the signal can get a little chaotic. The Sensation Fuzzdrive attempts to bring out the best of both by blending that punchiness and warmth, without sacrificing body or getting too “fizzy.” At its core, it’s a tool to push your signal hard without the chaos. It goes from a fuzzy low-end to crisp, overdriven mids, sure to make a screaming solo really jump out in a mix. The fuzz aspect provides just enough compression to smooth out the breakup.

Tone-shaping is achieved through three distinct transistor-based gain stages controlled by the “Saturator,” with an additional gain switch providing hi/low options. There are three tuned settings for mids-presence and another three for bass-presence. These functions expand your range and maximize precision.

Features

  • Up to 3 selectable gain stages
  • Additional gain bump option at each saturation level
  • Separate bass and mids switches
  • 9V DC. (Center Negative)

The Sensation Fuzzdrive sells for $249 and can be purchased from the Heather Brown Electronicals website at godsmom.com or via the company’s store on Reverb.com.

A faithful recreation of the Germanium Mosrite Fuzzrite with a modern twist.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.
