Tru-Fi Sammy Guitar Fuzz Pedal

Sammy's Fuzz is a take off of the classic Sam Ash/Astrotone fuzz of the late 60s made by Sam Ash 

Guitarists who lived in New York City in the late ’60s might recall the Sam Ash Fuzzz Boxx.

Introduced in ’67 as the Astrotone, it was popularized by Tommy Bolin, Leslie West, and Gene Cornish of The Rascals. The following year, it was rebranded and took on its iconic wedge-shaped enclosure. It was one of the first American fuzz pedals to employ a Tone knob, and today a vintage original model can cost more than $500.

Happily, this reissue of the Sam Ash Fuzzz Boxx re-creates the gnarly fuzz from the era of peace and love. A true-bypass pedal, it’s manufactured by Dunlop to the exact specifications of the original, including silicon transistors, that old-school wedge housing, and even the original color. Powered by a 9-volt battery, the Fuzzz Box has no LED or AC adapter option – just like the original.
The Sam Ash Fuzzz Boxx was put to the test with a variety of guitars, a couple of Fender blackface combos, and a Peavey head set up for mild grit. Sure enough, the sounds of the ’60s erupted, prompting an unnatural urge to play “Spirit in the Sky” and “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.”
