Wampler Pedals Introduces the Fuzztration Pedal

Wampler Pedals Fuzztration PedalThe new Wampler Pedals Fuzztration combines a fuzz pedal with an octaver and three-band EQ. Although there are plenty of controls for dialing in your sound, Wampler says the effect is not for the faint of heart.

“The Fuzzstration isn’t a pedal designed to really play ‘nice,'” they write. “It’s brash, raspy, doomy, in-your-face fuzz from top to bottom. This is not to say it can’t get some intensely classic Floyd sounds, but this isn’t your grandmother’s slice of pie. It’s rough, it’s gruff, and it’s like an angry lion trying to bust out of its cage. When the search for the perfect fuzz leads to a plethora of choices, the end of your Fuzztration comes when everything is packed into one, do-it-all fuzz box.”

The octave section is standalone for use on its own or in tandem with the fuzz. It has a switch for placement pre or post fuzz for extra flexibility.

The Wampler Pedals Fuzztration is built in the United States. It carries a price point of $199.97.
