Modern design, retro sounds.

The Boss FZ-5 is a modern pedal built for the modern guitarist, but the sounds you can get from the FZ-5 are pure retro. Looking back at the glorious rock sounds of the '60s and '70s, the FZ-5 recreates it's vintage fuzz through BOSS state-of-the-art COSM technology. Recall the fuzz-filled flavors of classic pedals, such as the Maestro FZ-1A, Fuzz Face and Octavia pedals, and kick 'em into overdrive with the FZ-5's Boost knob. BOSS' proprietary COSM technology allows guitar players to recreate classic fuzz BOOST control for more aggressive tone. The FZ-5 is the perfect weapon for players wanting to beef up their rigs with classic retro fuzz artillery.

Boss FZ-5 Fuzz Pedal Features:

  • Vintage sounds inspired by famous fuzz pedals of the '60s and '70s
    Uses advanced COSM technology to recreate classic fuzz
    BOOST control for more aggressive tone
    Road-tough BOSS metal construction

  • not a bad replica

    As reviewed by on 7/16/2007

    I was excited when I discovered that Boss was making a fuzz pedal. Getting those vintage 60's distortions can be tricky and older fuzz boxes have limitations. I rushed out to buy this one and took it home for a test drive on my les paul. My first impression was a little dissapointing. It seemed that the effects were a little anemic and lacked the punch of the sounds I was used to. I tried running the signal through my compressor first and that helped A LOT. I recommend doing this, (Boss makes a good compressor pedal). The effect came to life and had the edge I was looking for. The best setting is the fuzz face setting. The other two can be useful but seem a little bit tinny. Overall a worthy fuzz pedal.

  • Decent....

    As reviewed by jeff on 4/30/2007

    This is a decent fuzz pedal. It does a fairly good job (not 100%) of recreating some old fuzz tones. the fuzz face setting is very usable, and in my opinion sounds the best of the three. its no original fuzz face, but it is a decent pedal. the octiva sounds fairly good, but does sound a little off. maestro setting is horrible, but maybe thats just my taste. its very tinny. it does break up nicely, but all in all i didnt find it usable. all in all its a good fuzz tone for 120 dollars. i can see myself using the other settings more in a recording environment, but i will probably just stick to the fuzz face setting for live use. one good thing, its reasonably small, and doesnt require a battery like most boutique fuzz pedals.

  • Eh...

    As reviewed by Mike on 8/28/2008

    Well as far as this pedal is concerned i'm not too impressed. Ive been able to get a few tones out of it which i like, but for the most part i feel there are better fuzz pedals out there. This is a COSM pedal and to me it sounds like it just puts fuzz over your tone rather than integrating it into it. Well thats my thoughts...
