OVERVIEW

"Damage" switch for extra-nasty sound.

The Ibanez FZ7 pedal from the Tone-Lok Series takes fuzz distortion to a new extreme. It features a damage-control switch for a "ratted-out speaker" sound.

On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case‚ÄĚno more lost settings or broken knobs.

On the inside, Tone-Lok guitar pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

I play bass, and I have a 60's Fuzz Soundtank Pedal. My buddy (a guitarist) has this pedal, and I use it when I'm at his place playing together, and my pedal, the CHEAPER pedal, blows this one out of the water as far as power goes. Mine goes to about a level 11 on the fuzz scale, and this pedal might be lucky to achieve an 8. Mine also prolongs battery life in comparison, but sounds worse on smaller amplifiers. On our stacks though, the soundtank again triumphs. So... if you want an extremely good value for a fuzz-box, buy a 60's fuzz tanker off of ebay.

I've had this for a while now and the honeymoon's totally over.I'd be lying if I said you can't make this work. There are a few good tones in there, you just have to find them. The difference between this and the Boss FZ-5 is like night and day. The Boss pedal just doens't WANT to sound bad, while you spend 90% of your time with the Ibanez trying to find a good tone.Of course, it's half the price of the Boss. For people like me who are only gonna use it occasionally, that might make it seem like a better choice. But... no. Really, no.It's a beginner's pedal. If you're 16, that might be okay. Since you might be in your 20s, 30s or more, it's not. Most of us deserve better than this.That said, the FZ7 is surprisingly well MADE. The tone-loc knobs are great and I wish my Boss pedals had the same. It's also solid as a tank. I was totally shocked by how well designed it was for a pedal that sounded so bad.

alright

By zildjian player

from australia

See all my reviews

this fuzz is okay. it's good if you like tons of fuzz but if you want that get the big muff. even with the gain all the way down you can hardly make out what you are playing. good for solos bad for any other playing.

Jawsome

By shoelessthunder

from Chelmsford, MA

It's kind of a cool pedal for soloing and leads/fills. It's not very practical, especially the "Damage" thing, but if you want to make noise it's a pretty cool pedal. At a price this cheap, I'd say it's a really good bet.

Shagadelic!

By Fuzzy Wuzzy

from Earth

Great fuzz. Why pay 250 for some stupid handmade thing when this sounds great. I use the damage on 10% and it sounds cool on some lead work. No its not for blues, metal, or much else. But it is good for that fill in lead of retro fuzz.

Not good for heavy metal

By eThOsGuitarMan

from UK

If you are a heavy metal player, looking for system-of-a-down-like sounds, this is not for you, muting isnt best, not enough chunk, if youre looking for that the boss MT-2/DS-2 is what you are looking for.

Great Value, Somewhat Overrated

By enjoisk8er81

from Clarkston, MI

This is a decent pedal for most raunchy styles of music. Although, you should keep in mind that it is a 'fuzz', not an 'overdrive' or 'distortion'. This baby can crank out lots and lots of fuzz, often making your playing sound too muddy. The broken speaker function is nice but it doesn't have alot of appeal to the average rocker. Its a great value, but my main complaint is that it puts out too much bass, and not enough high end. Another thing is that mine is often hard to turn on and off via the footswitch. You have to stomp on it up towards the controls, which can be cumbersome.

OK

By DBeatRawNoise

from FL

This pedal is okay at the most, it sounds more like an Iggy and the Stooges type fuzz; through an EQ it sounds just like 'I wanna Be Your Dog', But this pedal is NOT for the Disclose/Dust Noise sounding fuzz, The Sound clip isn't true, that's hardly how it sounds, this pedal has no sustain, it sounds like some kind of broken or circuit bent electronic(not in a good way)If you want the Raw punk sound like Disorder, you're going to have to buy a bunch of different pedals probably.

Fuzz

Best fuzz pedal in this price range. Much fuzzier than the Boss fuzz and the Big Muff. Gives good volume boost, also. Best if used with a wah pedal.

Great Lo-Fi Fuzz

By Polystant

from FL, USA

See all my reviews

This pedal is pretty nice. It has a great Lo-fi sound. It's great for replicating vintage 60s-70s fuzz tones. Think Spirit in the Sky (Norman Greenbaum), Hey Hey, My My (Neil Young). The Damage switch, I think, is the best feature. It allows you to simulate a torn speaker or broken radio effect. It isn't the most versatile pedal, due to the loads of gain in this thing. You can't get much as far as low overdrive from this, but then again why would somebody buy a fuzz pedal when they are looking for low-gain, overdriven drive?

ok...

By Mygodishendrix

from Fairfield, CT

My friend owns this pedal and I have used it a few times. It's not exactly my style, it's too fuzzy and tonless and definitely needz more treble edge. It lacks that hendrix fuzz that I so desire. I would probably save up for something better, say an MXR blue box, or one of those Dunlop Fuzz faces, or a hendrix fuzz.

From past to Future

By Mikey Z.

from Greenville, SC

Another great Tone-lok from one of the best companies in the freakin world! This pedal mainly got my attention because of its damage switch. You can get sounds like Rage or Korn, as well as Hendrix or Zeppelin. I love incorporating my own stuff. The only fuzz I'll probably use, (unless Digitech or Marshall makes one.) I have another fuzz effect on my Toneworks pedal, But it does'nt compare to my Ibanez.

Nice pedal, for certain aps.

By 99

from CALI

This is a really great pedal if you like that crunchy mushed up sound...and it only works if you like that sound. This pedal only does one style, but it does that style very well. It isnt a pedal that will give you a light distortion, since i tried turning the distortion to zero, and there was still quite a bit of crunch. The dip knobs are really cool, they arent important..but they are cool. Over all, a great pedal, if used wisely.

a very fuzzy fuzz, great with neck pickup

By mr.huckleberryslim

from Sinking Spring, PA

See all my reviews

many people buy a fuzz pedal expecting a distortion or overdrive. fuzz is supposed to be dirtier, yet lets the tone come through. this is exactly what this pedal does. Not only does it let you taylor the tone (drive,tone,level), but it also has an option that lets you create a ratted out speaker sound. i dont use that option that much, but it is fun to mess around with sometimes. and with the price of fuzz pedals these days, this pedal is definatly a good deal.

so ugly it's freakin' beautiful

By carvinplayer

from Indianapolis, IN

See all my reviews

This is not a pedal for the faint of heart. It's extreme as any extra/hyper metal pedal out there, just in a different way. If you want out-of-control fuzz with a fat bottom, you got it. For single notes only, intermoudlation disortion turns chords (maybe even power chords) into glitched-up messes. the UNDERtones this makes are downright silly, particularly with the damagecontrol on. You hear ghost notes that are LOWER than what you play, and there's no rhyme or reason to them. Bend a note up and sometimes the ghost note drops! This is either for recording use or for your second, maybe THIRD distortion sound in a live rig. I use it for that "Spirit in the Sky" sound, only uglier.

Good fuzzy sound

By mydawg222

from Hanover, NH

This pedal is very good if you want something serious. It gives you very many options for different settings. I like that if you don't have a foot switch, you can go from clean to distorted. In some cases, it even sounds like Eric Clapton when he was in Cream.Anyway, this pedal is also great for Jack White stuff (even though he uses an electro harmonix big muff pi), and will go great for anything off the icky thump album. This pedal is basically the less expensive big muff, but it is just about as good as it.
