FUBAR FUZZ

$205.00

The Fubär Fuzz is from the expanding universe of the monstrous, limited edition Blackout Fuzz Bear, a wild five-knob, do-it-all fuzz exploration device itself.

The Fubär represents the entire timeline of fuzz, from the smooth glissando machines of yore to more modern oscillating gated fuzz. At the heart of the Fubär is a Tone Bender MkII circuit, built with a triplet of silicon devices. Then, after adding layer upon layer of control options, things get Fubär in a hurry.

Classic fuzz? Check. Oscillating, psychotic fuzz madness? Check. Expression capabilities?! Oh yes, check and check. The Fubär not only contains an expression Jack (10kΩ), it contains an EXP knob (which is a second Sag control, switchable as a preset with the associated footswitch) and the option to run the knob in parallel with the expression pedal itself (via internal DIP switches), giving users the option for some wild expression capabilities, while reclaiming the knob usually lost to expression control.

See more specs below.

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 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.
