Get those fuzztastic tones that make your guitar sound like a rusty old chainsaw.
Rusty Fuzz delivers those vintage silicon-based fuzz tones of yesteryear that we’ve all come to know and love, but at a price point well below that of vintage gear so everybody can play along. From silky-smooth sustain to ripping velcro-fuzz tones, it’s all there! So whether you’re experienced or not (See what we did there?), this compact true bypass pedal is sure to cover your old-school fuzz needs.
Welcome to Silicon Valley
Rusty Fuzz is inspired by the legendary silicon Fuzz Face circuits that helped shape the sound of rock as we know it, from the late 1960s and until today. It’s known for its smooth gain structure and dynamic character, which enables you to tap into a ton of tones simply by how hard you attack the strings or by increasing or decreasing your guitar’s output via the volume pot. Have fun exploring a world of fuzz.
The Sound of History
Turning on Rusty Fuzz is like taking a trip in a tonal time machine. One minute you’re rockin’ gnarly Hendrix-approved velcro tones, and the other your guitar is pouring out heavenly Eric Johnson and David Gilmour-like solo sustain. You can also push it and get more modern and ferocious gated fuzz tones ala Queens Of The Stone Age. It’s your sonic journey. You decide where you wanna go!
Classic Compact Coolness
Vintage fuzz pedals are known for three things. 1) They sound great 2) They’re huuuuuuge (reading this in Donald Trump’s voice is optional) 3) They alter your tone when bypassed. Rusty Fuzz stays true to the great classic tone, while alleviating the pesky downsides of old fuzz pedals by placing the circuit inside a super-solid but compact enclosure with top-mounted jacks and true bypass. This fuzz is fit for any board and any stage.
Backstage Pass – All Access
Full fuzz ahead! Let’s take a closer look at the layout of Rusty Fuzz.
This controls how hot you wanna drive the gain. Set it low for old-school and unique overdrive tones or crank it for a fully-fledged fuzz fest.
This One Goes To 11
Rusty Fuzz can get LOUD, and if you want that (who are we kidding, you want that!), this is the knob to turn. Go counter-clockwise for neighbor and partner-friendly tones or go fully clockwise to burn down the house. Search your heart, we trust you to do what’s right in the name of rock n roll.
Find Your Tone
From delightfully dark to ear-splittingly bright. Set it where it sounds like YOU.

Rusty Fuzz never alters your tone when bypassed. When it’s off, it’s really off!
