FIX’D FUZZ DELUXE

$205.00

Fix'd Fuzz Deluxe, the hydra of handmade fuzz boxes, boosts & overdrives. Replete with two polar opposite fuzz tones, as well as a full range clean boost through heady overdrive and a wide tone sculpting stage. It delivers big diversity in sound – all in a small footprint package designed specifically for the cramped pedalboard. The Deluxe version is the continuation of Blackout's first offering way back when: the discontinued Fix'd Fuzz.

For the uninitiated, each toggle activates a different stage of the circuit and their corresponding controls, allowing for a myriad of possible stacked combinations. With the help of the arrows you can follow your signal all the way from input jack to output jack. The new Deluxe version was made identical to the Twosome version of the circuit (and differs from the discontinued Fix’d Fuzz) by externalizing the controls for FUZZ:1 and FUZZ:2. Version 3.5 of the Fix'd circuit has also seen some minor circuit tweaks for smoother operation. The old Fix'd’s FUZZ:1 and FUZZ:2 gain trimpots have been externalized as full-size pots making real time tweaks possible and unlocking the hidden sounds and range lurking in both. The Output volume control is completely independent from the four Fix’d stages before it. If the LED is lit, the output knob is active, even if all 4 of the stage toggles are inactive. The creative among you will see the possibilities for using the Output knob alone as a “reverse boost”. The FIX’D FUZZ DELUXE is a 100% pure analog syrup of gnarly transistor-fried fuzz and true bypass switching in a beastly rugged case. And as is customary, it is… HANDMADE IN THE USA WITH PRECISION & BALLS, BY US, FOR US… BUT AVAILABLE TO YOU.

PLEASE READ |

Wait times: When ordering direct from us understand that sometimes what you’re ordering will be on the shelf, but sometimes we are wiped out of stock by big dealer orders and currently building per-order. When building per-order you can expect your pedal to take at least 2 business days but sometimes up to 2 weeks to build before we’re ready to ship, excluding weekends. If you’re concerned, please contact us prior to ordering to see what we have ready immediately.

Return Policy: Our policy is basically this: if you want the option of returning a perfectly functional pedal please order from one of our dealers instead. We run a skeleton crew of builders and our primary focus is on building pedals. Product returns add a lot of administrative work to our day and in the end takes someone away from concentrating on what we do best. We do offer the option to buy direct from us, but it is more for your convenience and not ours. If the sales process becomes inconvenient or too time consuming for us administratively, it quickly becomes very unprofitable for us. On the other hand, our dealers’ primary focus is on the sales aspect. They employ people to do exactly the things that need to happen to facilitate more complex sales transactions, including product returns, refunds, exchanges, etc. Most of them have very flexible policies, because they have the manpower to do all of that.

Power: We recommend the Visual Sound 1Spot for single space power supplies. We’re not affiliated in any way with Visual Sound, but we do use 1Spots prolifically in our shop so they’re guaranteed to work optimally with our pedals. For $$ power supplies with recommend and use the Pedal Power Plus. Blackout pedals do not use batteries.

Knobs: The knobs that come on your pedal will sometimes vary from the photos provided. If you’re curious about which knobs we’re currently using on a particular pedal please contact us prior to ordering.

Candy: All Blackout pedals currently come with a sticker and a pick (when in stock). Printed manuals are not included. It’s just a waste of paper for something you may look at once, or not at all. All manuals are available on the website in PDF form.
