Elk Grove Village, IL (September 9, 2015) -- Effect pedal manufacturer Function f(x) LLC today announced the launch of The Third Rail, the company's second product and follow-up to the successful Clusterfuzz.

Ferocious fuzz with remarkable range.

Clusterfuzz from Function f(x) takes an old idea and teaches it new tricks. At its heart, the pedal is a retro-style fuzz with two silicon transistors, in the vein of the Jordan Bosstone, Mosrite Fuzzrite, and post-germanium Fuzz Faces. But here, a clever set of extra controls greatly extends the tonal range of that classic combination.

Fuzz on Fire
Clusterfuzz feels and looks solid. Its pots are board-mounted, but its jacks are not, decreasing the chance of long-term damage. The footswitch is a soft-touch relay. The pedal runs on battery power or via a standard power supply (not included).

A pedal that serves up gain ranging from medium overdrive to square-wave fuzz.

Elk Grove Village, IL (January 19, 2015) -- Effect pedal manufacturer Function f(x) LLC today announced the launch of the Clusterfuzz, the company's inaugural product. Featuring a wide array of tone-shaping controls, the Clusterfuzz serves up gain ranging from medium overdrive to square-wave fuzz and is very reactive to adjustments of a guitar's volume knob. The Clusterfuzz is a new design that utilizes modern components for consistent performance and a long operational life. There is no pixie dust inside the Clusterfuzz, just great tone supported by solid circuit design.

Designed for guitarists who demand maximum flexibility from their dirt boxes, the Clusterfuzz offers a unique set of control knobs for the gain enthusiast: Volume, Tone (high-cut), Fuzz , 8-bit (fuzz threshold), and a clipping diode selector that offers five distinct levels of compression and sustain. Additionally, the Clusterfuzz features a Filter toggle switch that is a variable low-pass filter on the pedal's input. To avoid the all-too-familiar switching noise and help reduce loud pops, the Clusterfuzz sports a relay-based bypass switching system that Function f(x) developed in-house.
