The Dying Batt fuzz is loaded with AC128 GE transistors, Mullard "Tropical Fish" capacitors, and a voltage regulator control.

Philadelphia, PA (October 31, 2013) -- Adding to the company’s well-established line of fuzz pedals, TSVG has unveiled the new Dying Batt Fuzz.

Offering a raunchy, full-bodied germanium fuzz tone at full 9v, back off the voltage regulator and you’re in for a surprise. Different combinations between the voltage regulator and tone blend are what make the Dying Batt special. Watch it spit, sputter, and decay as you starve power to the circuit.

The release of the Dying Batt follows a fantastic unveiling at Summer NAMM 2013. Dial back the voltage regulator and sputter out of control. Roll it up and surround yourself in overwhelmingly thick “wall of sound” fuzz.


  • AC128 GE transistors, Mullard “Tropical Fish” capacitors, IRC resistors
  • Independent Volume, Voltage Regulator, Gain, and Blend controls
  • Top quality hardware: Alpha pots, Switchcraft jacks, cloth covered wire
  • True bypass switching

Suggested retail price for the Dying Batt is $170.

My years-long search for the “right” Bigsby-outfitted box finally paid off. Now how do I make this sumbitch work in my band?

Considering the amount of time I’ve spent (here and elsewhere) talking about and lusting after Gretsch hollowbody guitars, it’s taken me a remarkably long time to end up with a big Bigsby-outfitted box I truly love. High-end Gretsches are pricey enough that, for a long time, I just couldn’t swing it. Years ago I had an Electromatic for a while, and it looked and played lovely, but didn’t have the open, blooming acoustic resonance I hoped for. A while later, I reviewed the stellar Players Edition Broadkaster semi-hollow, and it was so great in so many ways that I set my sights on it, eventually got one, and adore it to this day. Yet the full-hollowbody lust remained.
