EarthQuaker Devices Fuzz Master General Guitar Pedal

Calculated at checkout

Before there was Boss, there was Roland. And before there was Roland, there was Ace Tone. EarthQuaker Devices asks you to step into a time machine, with destination set to “pre-Roland.”

Back then, in Japan, a new fuzz sound was emerging: the burly octave fuzz. Several companies had one; Ibanez, Shin-Ei, Kay and others. One of them, however, demands mention, as it’s the burliest of them all: the Ace Tone FM-2.

The folks at EarthQuaker Devices have released the Fuzz Master General, its take on the Burly Ace Tone FM-2. Intact are all the octave-up overtones, the massive woolly chordal sounds and nearly-out-of-control lead tones that made the original so awesome. Play up on the neck, and you’ll hear some interesting ring-modulated tones—and that’s only one mode.

That’s right, there’s a three-way toggle switch for three distinctive fuzz sounds. The original had two, accessible via a footswitch. The Fuzz Master General laughs in the face of two modes. The third mode is the most ring-modulated of all, and is a super-unique dirt sound that will expand your mind as much as your tone.
