The Floyd Fuzz is named after Pink Floyd and it's classic iconic Big Muff user David Gilmour. As we moved towards building custom pedals for everyone you can order this pedal in 5 classic versions
Now the pedal doesn't do all 5 version you have to order which one you want ! Tri-Angle the original design from Electro Harmonix was bit a milder, the RAMs Head was classic 70s fuzz distortion. The Creamy Dreamer was a late 90s design from a private builder that was a bit gainy. Smashing Pumpkins was a big user of this pedal. In the 80s the Big Muff had a re-birth with Electro Harmonix building the Red Army and Russian take off of this classic design.
The colors are pretty obvious but the Swirl and Chrome cost $20 extra that's what they cost us.
Tru-Fi Floyd Fuzz:
I'm tempted to just write "WOW" in 72point bold font, followed by 20 exclamation marks and leave it at that.
However, if you're thinking about one of these, trust me when I say these pedals are extremely well made, with great attention to detail, everything is tight and clean/high quality finishing and feels solid - seems highly likely that it will keep working even if it has to take some abuse (I use my gear pretty hard, it needs to withstand some beat downs). Which is all great, because this pedal also sounds outstanding! Like, OUTF#@KINGSTANDING!
Tone is powerful, open and warm. Signal path is clear and happily not that noisy (I use SC, HB and P90s). Tone & volume shaping is very responsive and, more importantly, VERY useful. There are many shades and workable gain variations to be pulled from this box, all of which sound great. Fits into my pedal chain nicely and plays well when stacked and combined with a wide variety other effects.
The market is saturated with pedals in this category, which is why this one jumps out in front so far. It's clearly made by and for a real players. Someone who knows intimately how this style box needs to integrate musically.
I've played for 35+ years and have used a boatload of gear (understatement) and I can 100% recommend Tru-Fi. Shop with confidence - your ears will thank you.
