A hand-made recreation of the famous Colorsound Power Booster and Overdriver used by the likes of Jeff Beck and David gilmour among the few. We chose to create these as the 9V version as we now live in the power supply world and make life easy for most. We also chose to make these in the later "orange" color as they just look cooler, the brown tone was a tad boring. But you can pick other colors if you so choose !
These are just killer reproductions, in a enclosure that is half the size but while unique it still hints of the original. Inside the unit you will find correct "real" BC109 transistors that just gives it the genuine sound. The beauty of these pedals is the volume pot on the side so you can really push your amp, this gives it the shine of a driven amp mixed with the thick fuzz overdrive tone you want.
These pedals are tone machines, always try to use an amp that has some mild grit, the addition of fuzz at that point is the secret to tone.
Of course, the Tru-Fi Zoso Fuzz is true bypass, sports LED, and manual !
Made in the USA!
NOTE: Swirl Picture - Each one is UNIQUE will slightly different than picture !
NOTE: Swirl Finish and Chrome/Polished Aluminum are $20 extra - Candy Apple Red and Anti-Freeze Green are no extra charge for now !
I've been wanting a vintage re-creation of the classic Colorsound Overdriver and the Tru-Fi Colordriver does not disappoint in any way. Built like an absolute tank with a style similar to the original, the Colordriver does a little bit of everything, from a semi-clean boost to full on fuzz. It seems to be suited best working in conjunction with a semi-dirty amp or a second distortion box (like a Big Muff, ala David Gilmour). With my Rams Head clone and the gain backed off, the Colordriver provided extra volume, clarify and some of the mids that can be lost with a Big Muff.
Even though this circuit is a classic, it's kind of a "sleeper" compared to the likes of the Fuzz Face or the Big Muff (though it's hard to consider a pedal used by Jeff Beck to be a sleeper). While a lot of other classic designs have inspired countless recreations, there are a limited number of Overdriver style pedals available. The Tru-Fi Colordriver does a great job filling that void and offering a handmade, well-built version for an excellent price. I will definitely be buying more Tru-Fi pedals in the future.

I wanted to take a moment to thank Ted and anybody else at TRU FI for there attention on this product and keeping in touch thru delivery. Definitely a sturdy and very well built unit,it offers a great freedom for tonal coloration as well as the so-named overdrive boosting from amp or pedal. This was well worth the short wait time.
