The re-issue circuit, just like the original uses a Darlington Pair for high gain input, which drives a temperature compensated ‘fuzz’ transistor.

United Kingdom (March 23, 2012) -- Rotosound has announced the re-issue of their Vintage Fuzz Pedal using the same circuit configuration as the 1960s original design, combined with modern resistors and capacitors. The new pedal brings yesterday’s mojo and tone flavor with the reliability and stability of today’s technology.

The re-issue circuit, just like the original uses a Darlington Pair for high gain input, which drives a temperature compensated ‘fuzz’ transistor. Thus the Fuzz Control can then govern changes in the amount of drive from a soft crunch to a gruff growl whilst still retaining the remarkable germanium roundness. The Treble Control then varies the ratio of bass to treble allowing a good range from muddy to crisp. The Volume Control alters the output level and to maintain cleanliness of sound, the pedal is switched on using dedicated contacts on the ‘instrument’ input jack.

The pedal is encased in a pressed steel box finished in a gloss silver hammer powder coating, again mimicking the traditional Rotosound pedal. It is extremely robust, durable and hardwearing and in keeping with their tradition of manufacturing in the UK, the pedal is made at Rotosound’s factory in Sevenoaks, Kent under the strictest quality control.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
