Effects: Fuzz, Germanium

When someone ask us what is the effect that created the history of rock, we can only answer: the Fuzz! Is the oldest of distorting effects pedals, we can hear it in the songs of the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath (to name but a few) and is still widely used by musicians of every musical genre. We present our version of Fuzz box made of two selected germanium transistors AC152, the only active components in the circuit, subjected to a careful selection to create the stamp that we have drawn in the mind and that only this old semiconductor can give. Founder of our fuzz is Uncle Gege, gruff and grumpy, able to go from innocent to angry mutterings schizophrenic screams. Gege has two presets:

  • Natural: the classic and “natural” Fuzz effect.
  • Broken Speaker: designed especially for those who make garage/beat, emulates the distortion coming out from broken loudspeakers.

In addition, a response control Fuzzy/Fatty: to obtain a marked increase in the medium-low frequencies, making the result more sonic and fat.


Designed specifically to obtain light and dynamic fuzz tones, with great sensitivity to picking, and indomitable distortion with long sustain. And ‘it presents an internal dip-switch, selectable at will, which has the function of regulating the behavior of the Gegè in the presence of large signals for maximum versatility with either Single coil and Humbucker guitars.

Please Note This is a positive ground pedal, use a battery or isolated power supply, this cannot be used on a daisy chain.
