The Fuzz Controller
- The Original, Original -
The Fuzz Controller was the first handmade enclosure effect unit, by Bad Penny FX. Graphically, it is inspired by classic British design, being modeled on a vintage train-set power supply, by Meccano. Internally, it is a dynamic, modern, fuzz circuit with NOS tone-shaping capacitors.
The main fuzz is low-bodied with selection switches for harsh or light clipping, and starve. In addition, there are two boost selectable boost stages, providing cuts to either high, low or both frequency ranges. The gain control is used to clean-up the signal. In conjunction with the input volume, it can create a lightly driven purr all the way up to earth-shattering roar.
The Fuzz Controller is the most versatile fuzz pedal from Bad Penny FX. Many strokes for many folks, as it were.
Boutique Originals Range
Being part of our Boutique Originals range means that this unit is made completely by hand, requires the most time and patience, and therefore, is of the highest quality Bad Penny FX has to offer. It uses a blend of vintage tone-shaping capacitors and other high-stability modern components, as standard. It is fully internally shielded, with surrounding thick gauge bus wire to provide high-quality grounding. All internal wiring uses vintage waxed cloth wire, commonly used in vintage amplifiers. It requires 9v power, supplied from a standard BOSS type, center negative source. Each enclosure is handmade, in-house, from beautifully grained, English Ash hardwood and 2mm aluminum, marked with a serial number to the back-plate.
The price of this range will increase as other ranges are added to our catalog.
