Amptweaker Introduces Limited Edition Tim Lefebvre TightFuzz Pedal

Amptweaker Lefebvre TightFuzz PedalAmptweaker has released a new version of their TightFuzz pedal with bassist Tim Lefebvre. The Limited Edition Lefebvre TightFuzz is voiced to give his favorite settings when the knobs are all set straight up. Amptweaker says it’s part of the recipe for Lefebvre’s “always on” tone, adding he sometimes kicks the fuzz all the way up for heavier tones.

“The pedal starts with the Germanium output transistor, for a warm amp-like breakup, and is set for the 60’s tone from the original Bass TightFuzz,” they write. “One of the important differences between the Lefebvre TightFuzz and most ‘reissue’ fuzz boxes is that with the addition of the Tight control in front of the fuzz circuit, the input of the fuzz circuit is effectively buffered from the bass….but in a compensated way.”

Other features include an Auto Bias, a Dry Low knob, an effects loop with pre/post switch, and a battery on/off switch. Limited to 50 units, the Amptweaker Lefebvre TightFuzz is available now for $249.
