    Roll-your-own fuzz tone.

    The Seymour Duncan Tweak Fuzz is a unique fuzz effects pedal that incorporates a 6-position Tweak knob letting you voice your fuzz tone the way you want it. The basic tone is a rich, lush, vintage fuzz tone, but by selecting any of the preset tone circuits and playing with the Gain knob you can create myriad unique fuzz tones. The Seymour Duncan footpedal has Volume, Gain, and Tweak controls. True bypass runs on 9V battery or 9V DC power supply.

    The Tweak control engages one of 6 preset EQ resonances that color the overall tone of the Tweak Fuzz, rolling off the bottom end and influencing the behavior of the Gain control. Each of the 6 frequencies was chosen and voiced to enhance rich harmonics and bring out the most flattering qualities of your guitar or bass. The Gain knob controls the amount of square wave clipping distortion, making your tone go from mildly distorted to all-out fuzz fury. The Volume control sets the overall level. True bypass circuitry completely removes the effect pedal from your guitar's signal chain, allowing your guitar's signal to pass through the Tweak Fuzz without affecting your tone or gain. Durable, heavy-duty 1.6mm steel sheet metal construction.

    Features
    • Rich, vintage fuzz tone
    • Tweak knob re-voices the tone with 6 preset EQ resonances
    • Gain, Volume, and Tweak knobs
    • Class A, low-noise transistor circuit
    • 1.6mm steel construction

    It's all about the Tweak. You'll love it's versatility and tone, so call or click and get yours now!

    I am really not a Fuzz guy. I wanted a second overdrive / distortion in my line, but something that wasn't going to be just more of the same OD. I wanted to be able to dial in some truly unique tones and go from mild to heavy. This seemed to be a potential winner.I think the folks that posted negative reviews probably started with expectations that didn't match the intentions of the box. In short my advice, if you are considering this pedal - watch the Blues Saraceno video demo on this page or the Seymour Duncan site. If you hear that and say "that sounds awesome" and his playing style matches yours (blues, funk, classic rock), you will not be disappointed.The tone of the box is most certainly Fuzz, but you can dial in some creamy distortion and overdrive type tones - esp in positions 1 and 2 - which is why it appealed to me.The build quality of the pedal is extremely high and is tough as you'll likely need. Only two things I can knock: the tones are best "over the top" - gain turned up pretty high - not much of a subtle dynamic here AND you have to remove the entire bottom cover to get to the battery (4 screws).In the end, the pedal wasn't quite what I was looking for, but it is an excellent pedal, just a bit too much for my taste. But you can't fault seymour duncan for that, they deliver as advertised.

    Tweak feature is nice if you find a sound that you want to keep. Gain and Volume, nothing too special there. Built real solid, not too big though.
    Sound wise, you're either going to hit or miss. I have a friend who runs Gibson SG ---> Fender 4x10 Bassman he could only draw a thick nasty fuzz out of it. I run custom Strat w/ Strat-style active EMGs---> Fender Blues Deluxe 1x12 and I love this sucker. I've never been one for thick fuzz or distortion, but when I set the tweak at 3-5, crank the volume and cut the gain, you get a nice overdriven sound. I usually stack it with my amp's drive channel for an almost clean boost. Sounds gritty, not nasty.
    No problems yet, good stuff
    I paid $40 new, so heck yeah.

    Vintage & modern tones

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    Solid pedal. Really good fuzz tones, with the right amp.
    A fuzz that can nail some of the older rock tones and modern. This unit is made to be in front of a tube amp, for best results. Sounds like a buzz saw with SS amps. I have found this pedal behaves best with vintage circuit tube amps. My modern hi-gain amps can easily over compress if the amp's input gain is set too high and adding the Tweak Fuzz can get noisey quick, in that environment. Very different sounding than my EH Muff's. Cleans up (some) with the guitars volume.

    So used in the right environement, it sounds great.

    Good pedal, great value

    By Walter Thomas

    from Paterson, NJ

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    After checking out several pedals and sounds, I found the Tweak Fuzz the absolute best pedal out there for me. I could only get one pedal at this time and I was looking at many at much higher and some even lower priced products. When I added everything into the decision, the Tweak Fuzz came out ahead by far. I won't mention the other pedals I was looking at, just that they all produced a "Fuzz tone." I didn't actually play any of the pedals before I purchased my Tweak Fuzz. I only went on reviews and demos online.
    Excellent features. Gives you control over the amount of fuzz distortion, volume and gain. You have to play around with it at first too get the hang of it with your setup, but once you do, watch out! You have a very good piece of equipment to add to your sound.
    Solid build. I feel confident it can handle the road with no trouble.
    This is the clincher for me. The value is unsurpassed. The price tag for the Tweak Fuzz, allows for just about everyone to get one. You can't find a better deal.

    A bit noisy, but really awesome.

    By Dylan Beckerman

    from Arlington, TX

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    Overall, this pedal is great. It's a bit noisy and needs to be put in front of any other pedals, but it sounds great. People tend to worship the Big Muff as a fuzz pedal, but this thing outdoes a Muff by a long shot. It looks good and sounds good, and would be a great addition to anyone's rig.
    This pedal is very user-friendly and good quality. The tweak knob is a nice feature; I love being able to change the amount of fuzz you get. Between the Gain and Tweak controls, you can get a massive selection of sounds, ranging from Hendrix to the Beatles to the White Stripes. The gain is a bit sensitive, and the pedal tends to make a wheezy, whiny sound if you turn the it up too high, but it still sounds awesome.
    This is a very good quality pedal. The controls and casing are durable, and the pedal won't slip around when you stomp on it. I tend to stomp pretty hard when I'm playing, and it hasn't failed me yet.
    This is a great pedal for the price. I got it on sale, and it was one of the best buys I have made. It has lived up to my expectations and more. If you find this pedal for a good price, buy it - it's worth it.

    Ehhhhhhh

    By SGMan26

    from Warner Robins, Ga

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    kinda cool, mostly dissapointing
    3 knobs, simple, very cool looking
    built like a tank, very very solid. you can feel the quality when you hold it, everything is tight and well built.
    the first 3 notches on the middle dial sounds really trebley and thin. I dont have a problem with it being noisy, but the volume and gain don't change much until you get to about 4 o clock........the parameters are so screwed up. You can either have a really full intense fuzz or a really weak really bad sounding fuzz. Just kinda wished there was a middle ground, the volume also has to be at about 100% to even be as loud as the signal

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    Got it on sale. Returned it.
    This thing was so noisy. If you put any amount of gain on past 5 it was noisier than the signal.
    Pretty rugged chasis.

    Review of SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal

    By Earle G

    from Nashville Area

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    Good study unit and gets great 60s, 70s and more modern fuzz sounds. A little adjusting even gets
    a nice Marshall like rasp but at lower volume level.
    The various tweak settings are good. Haven't had much luck with the the first 2 as needed
    more volume and gain but that created background noise and not that great a sound. Will have
    to try some things with those. The 3rd and up (clockwise) settings are very good and respond
    well with different pickup settings. The 3 and up settings only require volume & gain set around 12
    to 1 o'clock with very little background noise. The true bypass is really nice.

    Rocks my socks and rolls my soul

    By SkyPilot-cLv-E

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    My brother recently bought a Little Big Muff (which is also awesome) and this easily stands up to it and more. So simple to use and versatility out the wazoo. You can easily get the tones of David Gilmour, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, The Beatles, The Who, The Black Keys, and tons of others out of one very affordable stomp box.
    [Demoed with a combination of Epiphone Les Paul with GFS pickups, a custom Gibson SG, Fender Standard Telecaster, Orange Tiny Terror, and Marshall 212 cabinet with Sovtek head] Where to start with this beast. You can get a decent amount of hair on the lowest "tweak" setting, but it really shines at setting 3 and higher, bringing out that lovely "ruptured speaker cone" sound. Even at the lower settings, you can get a nice tinny, hollow sound with a little compression (think "Taxman" by The Beatles). On setting 6, you get into Fuzz Face/Big Muff sound. I was surprised at how easily it cleans up if you roll down the volume on your guitar at any setting. Great sustain, too. It sounds like the notes are just about ready to disintegrate into oblivion on the higher settings.
    Everything is solid and near-indestructible. The true-bypass gives a nice, audible click when you stomp on it.
    I got mine on sale and got my money's worth after about 20 minutes of playing.

    Totally Awesome

    By Lucian Babb

    from Fredericksburg, Texas

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    Best thing I have added to my jam room in a long time.
    Thirty bucks for this little thing now has me wondering why I have been using my BOSS DS-1 for like 10 years without caring. It sounds great. Feels nice and sturdy, and it was cheeeeaaap. Makes me wonder what else is out there. I was just fine using that old orange pedal. You know? Just plug in and go. Who cares, right? Well, I care now. Great buy for me.
    Feels like good quality to me.
    I would put 20 here if I could. Great value.

    An Insanely Good Deal

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SFX-02 Tweak Fuzz Pedal:

    The reason I am rating this so highly is the low, low, lowball how can it be this cheap price it's going for now. It would have been a solid competitor at a higher price, although one could argue that at that figure you might as well get a real deal Fuzzface. At the price however, it becomes a different story. A Dunlop Fuzzface costs three times as much, but can't possibly be three times as good, and we won't go into the high end boutique fuzz clones. Fuzz is fuzz, there are variations but this is the basic sound at the heart of the concept, delivered with a bit more control than a traditional unit. Not only a good deal for what it is, but a stunning value in the world of pedals generally. Too bad everything can't be had this affordably!
    You have a very, very simple control scheme. Fuzz is not complicated, fuzz is not terribly subtle. Fuzz is what it is. Volume and Gain to most of the lifting while the Tweak adds gradually increasing levels of bass response. There is no wasted space on this pedal.
    Ok, you have to hold this thing to get it. It's solid. The switch engages with an audible click. The knobs feel sturdy. Seymour Duncan went all out with the quality in this thing and it shows.
    The only other things you get in this price range are plastic Behringer pedals and the low end of the Danalectro line. If you are looking to buy a fuzz pedal, you would be INSANE not to get this. It can and will stand in with the Fuzzface, which it appears to be a clone of. I have read some complaints that it doesn't have enough gain, or enough volume, and that it is noisy in a pedal chain. This unit is meant to be faithful to the specs of a vintage fuzz unit. It has a fair amount of volume and gain. If you want more power, turn your amp up, and this fuzz will scream accordingly. I am getting plenty of power out of this thing, using a Telecaster Thinline with single coils.
