Eastwood Announces the Valco KGB Fuzz Pedal
“The Variable Input Impedance works best with passive instruments (guitar/bass) and allows tone-sculpting with or without the fuzz circuit engaged,” they write. “Lower settings yield softer dynamics/transients with a notable ‘rounded/vintage’ feel and tone. Higher settings give a sharper high-frequency response with a more direct/aggressive transient feel and more perceived gain. This makes for a great ’shaping’ control, where you can tune the pedal for its best response to the pickups you are using and how you want them to react/feel.”
Additionally, the pedal has a multi-mode silicon fuzz that covers “two knob”, “ToneBender”, “Muff,” and “Velcro” fuzz styles. A fader lets you blend your fuzz and dry mix to your liking.
Get a super detailed analysis of the pedal in this clip from the SuperFunAwesomeHappyTime Pedal Show, which demos the KGB on bass around the 26-minute mark.
The Valco KGB Fuzz will be available soon for $299.
