MUSKET FUZZ v2

5 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

$195.00

Classic Blackout! A best selling, highly tweakable, highly fuzzed up iteration of the vintage muff-type circuit. But why stop at 4 gain stages? 5 is clearly 1 better. The Musket’s added controls over MIDS-shaping, PREamp control, and FOCUSing the sub-low end frequencies address all of the commonly discussed shortcomings of the old 3-knob fuzz.

With those additions, the Musket is able to traverse the decades, the continents and the many versions of muffs along the way – from emulation to beyond. From Floyd-ian singing violin sustain to dreamy, grungy growl; the flexibility is all there at your fingertips.

STANDOUT FEATURES |

  • PRE – a front end clean boost to slam the fuzz circuit for all kinds of new weirdness. The FUZZ control interacts with it to not only control amount of fuzz, but also sustain and compression.
  • MIDS –  lets you control the tonal flavor of the Musket from super scooped up to mid-boosted and everything in between. The ability to adjust the MIDS brings a whole new world to the fuzz pedal and will make sure that you are never buried in the mix again.
  • FOCUS – this seemingly subtle control is at the heart of the Musket’s uniqueness. The FOCUS knob is a pre-fuzz sub-low end control that allows the Musket to not only produce vintage fuzz, but to also get a more modern quasi-distortion/fuzz flavor with a sharper note attack and better palm muting capability than any other muff-type circuit that we know of.

Bass players! Look no further! The Musket brings the thunder. You’ll find the Musket on pro bass player boards the world over. If you need fuzz and you need it to be massive…

The Musket can also be found as one half of our classic dual fuzz monster, the Twosome, as well as its various incarnations as the VST, SST, and the almost sold-out Special Twosome Deluxe.

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.
