Tone snobs: BEWARE! I run this fuzz pedal into a SOLID-STATE, 100 watt Marshall combo. I know most pedal run fuzz pedals through tube amps, but this is what I've got. On the clean channel, it's sounds fine. But turn on the dirty channel and turn the gain up ever so slightly that it's BARELY distorted, and then kick this pedal on with the fuzz cranked up, then all of a sudden... WOW! This pedal SCREAMS! Then just use the volume on your guitar to control it, and then WHAM you've got yourself some pretty extreme tone.

but didn't really float my boat. I was hoping for traditional FuzzFace sounds in a more convenient form factor, but this one is sort of a mutant cross between a fuzzface and a big muff. Outrageous and over the top for sure, but I didn't like the big wooly mammoth bottom end that you couldn't dial out. If you're into some huge stoner rock wall of fuzz sounds with big bottom end you might want to check it out... at this price it would be a crime not to.

Clapton/Hendrix tone on a lowfat diet...

By catboyzee

from Seaside, CA

See all my reviews

Cool Cat mimics the voicing and slow, sagging attack of the classic fuzzes of the 60s and 70s. I tried one of the discus-shaped fuzz pedals before purchasing the Cool Cat a week ago; I used it on a gig the same night. Only place the Cool Cat falls short is that it doesn't quite have the low-end girth and midrange punch that the discus fuzz pedals have. That may not be a negative however, especially if you use a guitar with humbuckers and want your tone to cut more. Even though the chassis is metal I can't say how durable it is; only time and use/abuse will reveal that. Otherwise, the Cool Cat fuzz is an excellent value that gives you that classic, though not as meaty, fuzz tone.

Great deal for fuzz!!!

By piloto117

Man this is one of those things that are too good to be true, but it really is! The fuzz is great for anybody with a limited budget. It sounds great, cleans up when you roll the guitars volume down, true bypass... the fuzz is not a big muff nor a fuzzface clone, it kinda falls a little more on the fuzzface side, with a smooth, organic silicon distortion and a nice tone. I bought it just for kicks, kinda expecting it would stick in my collection, but I was hoping for a more agressive, wild fuzz which it doesn't provide.

cool cat fuzz

By musiclover83

This is a great fuzz pedal specially for the price. It got great bassy fuzz which can easily be controlled with you guitar volume. True bypass and it just sounds great try it, what have you got to loose.

A players price?

By FindtheRabbit

from Gettysburg, PA

So apparently there has been a lot of hype about the Cool Cat pedals and for good reasons. The special thing about these is each pedal is ehem... "inspired" by some other great pedal on the market, but danelectro doesn't feel like robbing you or giving you that devilish feeling of superiority because of the size of your wallet. This particular pedal is based... ehem "inspired" on a good ol Frantone Peachfuzz. Go online, compare the two and use that analytical part of your brain that allowed us to be more than monkeys and tell me that 300 dollars is worth the difference in name. Get your Cool Cats soon before the lawyers do.

Review

By prosty da snomaN

from Asheboro, NC

i bought for the whole grunge sound and at first didn't really know how to set it up just right. do i had to toy with it for a little bit and finally got the nirvana sound i was looking for. and after toying with a little bit more i got a more punk sound with it to. (and if you want and even closer sound try buying the danelectro daddy o pedal to hook up with this pedal and you'll get an even more grungier sound that would sound similar to cobain's.) and you definitely can't beat the price.

Soooooo Fuzzzzzzy.

By Grisham King

I love this pedal. It is so fuzzy. I crank it all the way up, but you can be light on the fuzz if you want. I am now going to purchase the full line of cool cats. This is a very sturdy pedal. Its all metal, and I would fell 100% comfortable gigging with this. Super pedal, my favorite.

The orange juicer of fuzz

By Twanger-SV3Ri

from Ohio

See all my reviews

The Cool Cat fuzz has that nice fresh squeezed orange juice taste. And it is toatlly NICE and SEEDLESS as far as value is concerned. The 3 levels of Fuzz, Tone and Volume can be adjusted as to provide a subtle texture or a psychodelic crunch. The beauty of this fuzz, beside the cost, is when the guitar volume can be turned down as to retain the tone of the instruement and amp, then with a twist of the guitars volume knob, the juice begins to pour out in the mix and scream. Another nice addition is when Two fuzzes are together with tone and fuzz adjustments at minimum and maximum as to dial in various levels of sonic mayhem. And when the guitar volume is lowered, the buzz and distortion disappear. This fuzz is also very tastey with tube amps and coupled with the FAB Echo, then the sound tends to open up. The Cat Fuzz is made in China, but I enjoy it moreso than the trebley EHX Metal Muff.Will it last 20 years? Can it be modded like the Fab Echo? Who knows, but the value and taste of the fresh squeazed fuzziness is a citrus loversdelight. Go crazy and bite into a couple before the frost comes along and all the prices jump through the roof. Try the golden Transparent Overdrive too. The cost to tone ratio is outstanding.

Good

By JR-W4lBa

I bought this pedal looking for it to be volume responsive and have a vast tonal range, which it has. The issue that I have with this pedal is its character or voicing. It almost seems more like a distortion pedal than a fuzz. I bought it for a tonebender or fuzz face sound on the cheap, and it's a little hard to get those tones. The pedal sounds good, and it's really affordable, but sometimes it's hard to get it to sound as fuzzy as I'd like it to.
