Dresden Synth Fuzz

Information

The Dresden Synth Fuzz is a quite unique pedal. Combining two synthy-sounding octave fuzzes run in parallel - an upper and lower octave fuzz - it covers the whole frequency range. It's dirty and snarly on the low notes, almost like a malfunctioning analogue synth, and relentlessly precise on the higher notes. It is always rewardingly noisy!

The big synth knob is simply the volume control. The small switch in the upper left selects either the upper or lower octave fuzzes or both of them combined.

Power: due to the large amount of circuitry inside the enclosure, the Dresden Synth Fuzz is powered by DC jack only - no batteries!

Shipping

We post anywhere in the world, typically £10 to the USA and Europe for one pedal, a little more for two. Within the UK we use first class signed-for, which costs £5 but is tracked, insured and arrives the next working day.

Fredric Effects accept Paypal, but if you're in the UK you can save £5 on each pedal by paying by bank transfer instead.
