VINTAGE FUZZ MASTER

The VFM is reminiscent of the Mosrite Fuzzrite or Maestro Brassmaster, but with a lot more balls. Back in the day when I was looking for a really wild fuzz sound I heard in the most insane of Jimi Hendrix performances, or psychadelic noise freak outs of the 60′s and 70′s, it seemed that all the pedals people were recommending just weren’t cutting it. That’s because a lot of those old fuzz sounds were created by combining fuzz faces or tone benders with high gain marshall stacks recorded at insane volumes. The Vintage Fuzz Master is my solution to the conundrum of wanting to have that sound in a tiny package. All the madness of vintage fuzz into a high gain amp with out the hassle of carrying around a stack with you.
