EC Pedals Releases Michael Benson FuzzDriver Pedal

EC Pedals Michael Benson FuzzDriver PedalEC Pedals has joined forces with bassist Michael Benson to released the FuzzDriver, a stompbox that combines the company’s Bass Overlord and Angry Ape Gated Fuzz effects into one. The effects can be activated separately or together to create new textures.

The Fuzz side of the FuzzDriver has Level, Tone, Gain, and Growl controls. Its Growl knob controls the gate and can be adjusted to get “tight and fast fuzz to sloppy synth type” attacks.

The overdrive section has Level, Gain, and Tone controls. EC says that the FuzzDriver’s gain is very dynamic due to its design, from a very low gain to high gain overdrive crunch with more mid scooped tones.

The EC Pedals FuzzDriver is made as part of their custom shop and is available direct with a street price of $249. For more info, check out the EC Pedals website.
