In-your-face classic fuzz pedal from the masters of all-things fuzz.

What do you think of when we say ElectroHarmonix? FUZZ. Or at least that's what you should think of. EHX makes great and legendary fuzz tones ranging from lo-fi vintage to high-gain modern-metal madness. And the Satisfaction falls into a category all its own.

They re-create the classic fuzz for today's player, only now it has convenient true bypass circuitry, so when you want fuzz you've got it and when you don't, it's not sending hum through your chain. The Satisfaction Fuzz features a simple, straight-forward, two-knob layout with controls for Volume and Attack (fuzz).

True to its fuzzy brethren, this classically-voiced fuzz creates a wide birth of gritty goodness. Its sound that is anything but subtle and goes from an aggressive rasp to full-on fuzzed-out mayhem!

Features

  • Classic fuzztone
  • True bypass for maximum signal path integrity
  • Rugged die-cast package
  • 9 Volt battery included

        Comments about Electro-Harmonix Satisfaction Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

        FINALLY a FUZZ pedal with that 65-66 fuzz sound! For decades I've searched, and tried, numerous, so called "fuzz" pedals; they sounded similar to my distortion control on my amp (or distortion pedal). Nothing like the fuzz I was searching for. I was a crazy man: "If a man can walk on the moon, why can't I get a fuzz pedal that sounds like 1965?!!!" This pedal is the closest you'll ever get to that original fuzz sound that started a "fuzz revolution"; -- the louder the better -- you'll swear it's Keith playing "Satisfaction" -- but it'll be YOU! Very happy with this pedal. "I've got a fuzz box and I'm not afraid to use it!"

          Comments about Electro-Harmonix Satisfaction Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

          This is less of a distortion pedal and more of an extreme treble booster. It cuts out all the bass, alot of the lower mids and turns the high end up to 10. Even with the treble and presence on my amp lowered and the mids, bass and resonance turned up, it still sounded harsh. I returned it the next day. I was looking for a harsh lo fi fuzz, but this thing is harsh and lo fi to an extreme. Lowering the gain didn't help much. Your better off getting any other classic fuzz pedal like the Maestro, which this is somewhat based on.

            Comments about Electro-Harmonix Satisfaction Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

            This is a great fuzz pedal, finally found the sound I have been looking for for years. At first I was a bit disappointed, it seemed that it wasnt really adding fuzz, more giving me dirty signal more girth. I eventually cleaned up my dry signal and got the dirty electric razor sound I was looking for. The fuzz control works as you would imagine that it would, but the volume control doesnt really add volum after 9 oclock. Turning it past nine seems to add more sustain and give your low end back, giving a heavier, fuller sound. Definately meets all my fuzz needs, from a heavy Sabbathian sound (volume all the way up), to dirty sixties garage rock (volume around 10 oclock.) If you're tired of the generic pi fuzz sound get one of these for sure.

                This really gets the song tone. Now all I want to play on it is that song, but it can probably do others - just why would you need more than one song?

                  Comments about Electro-Harmonix Satisfaction Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  This is just what I was looking for. I have many fuzz pedals and most of them are splatty, distorted, over the top dirt boxes. I wanted a pedal that I could easily dial in a classic '60s fuzz tone similar to the Maestro FZ-1A and this is it. The nano size lets it fit easily on pedalboards and it has just two controls, Volume and Attack. The demo video from Electro-Harmonix convinced me to give it a try. It does the "Satisfaction" and "American Woman" things as advertised with some tweaking of the pedal knobs and the guitar's tone controls. I was dialing in Iron Butterfly and "Crimson & Clover"-era Shondells tones as well as contemporary Neo-Psychedelic sounds from Tame Impala and the Black Hollies. This is real fuzz, not heavy distortion so hard rockers and metalheads might want to look for something else.

                  I've got a lot of pedals, but surprisingly, this is my first from EHX. These guys seem to be putting out a lot of great pedals lately and at really attractive prices. This pedal even comes with a battery! Now I'm on the waiting list for their Soul Food overdrive, but that's for another review.

                      Great little fuzz. Not a balls to the wall fuzz like DBA but it is a nice welcomed change. Very Nice for leads and rhythm but when coupled with your favorite overdrive the pedal exudes a nice warm harmonic fuzz and it is quite pleasing. You have to have patience to mess with it. At first I cranked the attack which is supposed to be the level of fuzz and I was like thats it? That's all the juice? Then I raised the volume which is not just a volume level but more like an overdrive level. A very nice distortion without any reverb which is what I am always looking for. Metal guys will probably not like it unless they are soloing or looking for a different sound as well. Don't expect this thing to be hairy, it is just a subtle harmonic distortion generator, But I see this thing caching on because it is just 50 bones, a freakin steal.
