MI Audio has just released 2 new Fuzz pedals, the "G.I. Fuzz" and the "Neo Fuzz". Both designs are original designs, and are not clones of older designs according to the company.
The 2 pedals were designed by first analysing the various components which go into the production of a fuzz tone. These parameters were identified as: pickup loading (input impedance), gain, bias and symmetry, and tone shaping and control
In order to control these parameters, both the G.I. Fuzz and the Neo Fuzz were equipped with the following controls:
Both pedals also include an internal gain trimmer for fine-tuning the fuzz gain, as well as a 3 position brightness switch for matching modern bright amps, or for balancing with darker sounding overdrive pedals.
The G.I. Fuzz is built around a trio of high gain NPN silicon transistors, resulting in a tight, modern, aggressive fuzz tone.
The Neo Fuzz uses a duo of NOS AC128 germanium transistors, and one silicon PNP transistor (not used in fuzz production). The tone of Neo Fuzz is very smooth, and great for vintage fuzz tones. The Neo Fuzz also features a unique high intensity pink LED.
Both pedals also feature:
Each pedal is hand-made in Sydney, Australia, and comes with a 5 year warranty.
The retail price of the G.I. Fuzz is US$139.95, and the Neo Fuzz is US$159.95.
