Smallsound/Bigsound Buzzz Octave Fuzz v2

Brand New

Description & Specs

From Smallsound/Bigsound:

The buzzz is my highly modified take on the classic and epically gnarly superfuzz circuit… made more super! I have always loved the beautifully discordant harmonics and searing fuzztones available in the original but as goes with everything, i felt the need to mess with the circuit and expand upon it.

The buzzz keeps the standard superfuzz sounds – a scrambled and clangy fuzz with pronounced upper octaving and lower harmonics/sub-frequencies – and adds additional controls to access milder dirty boost and drive tones, gated sputter and low buzz-tones.

The highly interactive controls include a wider gain range, voltage starve, gain modifier toggle, passive LPF, octave on/off and tone-blast toggle make for a surprisingly versatile fuzz capable of overdrive, buzzsaw fuzz and blistering octavia.

So many folks wanted the octave on a footswitch. wait no! The tone-blast on a footswitch. wWait no! Octave! Tone-blast! Ok ok, I relented and gave buzzz the ability to toggle the left footswitch function between either tone-blast or octave… the choice is yours!

Power
Please use a standard 9V DC power supply (designed for musical instruments) with a negative center 2.1mm barrel and do NOT run at higher voltages. Peak current draw is around 18mA.

Controls
Gain: Controls the amount of gain from low drive to heavy fuzz. Works in conjunction with the gain modifier toggle for even more range!

Starve: Lowers the supply voltage for non-linear tone changes which include gating, decreased headroom and clarity and decreased frequency bandwidth. Clockwise is full 9V.

Volume: Simple enough. it can be LOUD, depending on the settings of the gain control, so start with it low.

Treble: A passive LPF.

Gain modifier toggle (black triangle): LEFT for less gain, RIGHT for more gain.

Oct/tone toggle, !!! Footswitch and white triangle toggle: these 3 controls work together in a unique way to provide 2 possible footswitch functions - either an octave up/down or a heavy midrange scoop/boost. When the triangle toggle is RIGHT, the oct/tone toggle controls the EQ while the !!! footswitch controls the octave. When the triangle toggle is to the LEFT, the oct/tone toggle controls the octave while the !!! Footswitch controls the EQ.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
