Buzz Balls

Caaaaaann youuuuuu dig it?!  The buzz balls is my tweaked take on the Rosac Nu-Fuzz of yesteryear.  Its a nasty, buzzy little monster perfected for all the riffs you can throw at it.  The fuzz control on this one is set at a fixed level and a “shape” control takes you from bumble-bee buzz to a thick and chewy low growl.  There’s a slight bit of gate to the sound so it provides great separation between notes when you want a choppier sound.  In addition to the straight up fuzztones this one has a lot of extra boost with it, so you can you can mix and match with a boosted amp to bring new fuzzy dimensions to light.

Built with Vishay/Sprague film capacitors, Vishay/BC electrolytics, Xicon carbon film resistors, Carling foot switches, and topped off with a pair Davies dakaware chicken head knobs.

 

The following clip is from Justin from the band Honeysmoke out of Charleston, SC.  He’s using his Buzz Balls unit on their recording for “Gypsy Girl”.  The Buzz Balls solo is great and happens at about the 1:50 mark in the track.

 

Buzz Balls units are available for $145.
