That Pedal Show – Moving On From Vintage Fuzz with ZVEX, Thorpy, ProAnalog Devices And Wampler

Published on Jan 5, 2018

In this episode we follow up from our recent adventures in vintage-style fuzzes… with some slightly more modern excursions around the fantabulous fields of fuzz.
Now clearly this is a product sector absolutely awash with wacky, weird and wonderful devices from a plethora of makers, be they individuals or multinational corporations. So how on Earth do you just pick five? Well, you just pick five, get on with it and wait for the deluge of comments from people wishing you’d chosen something different. If that sounds like you, consider this as Part 1 with more to follow in time, based on your helpful suggestions.
For everybody else, we hope this provides a little context to some of the other options out there to a strictly vintage-style fuzz and encourages you down the path of the seismic square wave. Swathe yourself amid blankets of woolly warmth, or perhaps splutter forth with grainy, gated aggression. Who doesn’t love a bit of the ol’ fuzzy goodness, eh?
