A killer lead boost that blends fuzz and overdrive.

The Fuzz Head from Keeley is a unique lead boost that combines the best of fuzz and overdrive effects. Transparent, dynamic, and fully tweakable, with an NPN Germanium transistor at its heart but much more up its sleeve.

With external Fuzz and Head controls, you can easily call up a number of dynamic fuzz and overdrive effects. The unique Si/Ge switch allows you to control a secondary clipping stage by adding a pair of diodes (one Germanium, one silicon) into the circuit for smoother clipping, more saturation, and loads of sustain.

Pedal tweakers will love the internal gain control, which sets the overall range of the external Fuzz control, and the internal tone control or sharpening high-end or cutting it back. A small, flathead screwdriver is all that's needed to fine tune your tone. Three swappable capacitors are also included with the Fuzz Head, so that if you must change the low-end response of the pedal, you can.

  • NPN Germanium transistor
    Additional gain stage with a pair of high-gain Darlington silicon transistors for tons of volume

    Large blue LED
    Si mode inserts two silicon diodes in the distortion circuit for an increase in fuzz and compression for more sustain; Ge mode is natural and open-sounding

  • Not a fuzz, not really, well kind of maybe.

    As reviewed by Mario Arredondo on 12/29/2011

    First off, this pedal is not a full on fuzz pedal and that's a good thing. This pedal is a overdrive/fuzz pedal. It blends the two. This thing excels at being a lead boost. I love this pedal and don't know how I got along without it. There's an internal tone and gain control that lets you customize to taste and even comes with xtra capacitors to swap out for treble-boosting or more bass for super thick leads although I've left the caps alone because you can just switch pickups. Has a switch to go between the silicon or germanium transistor, very subtle change. Very transparent and gritty. I use after my blues driver. True bypass and not as noisy as a full on fuzz pedal but it doesn't play well with my lead channels thick distortion, this pedal loves clean or crunch channels, just get your amp to start breaking up and this thing takes it over the top, it's a very loud pedal which is great for driving a tube amp. Price is steep but sooo worth it. Buy it.

  • I'm Impressed!

    As reviewed by Tony on 12/17/2008

    This pedal does everything is says and a bit more. I used it alone, just dialing back on the volume on the guitar for more overdrive sounds-dialing up for big fuzz. I dialed it all the way up for a great out-of-control fuzz. I also used it in tandem with my OD pedal (Zendrive) for a big sound-fuzz with a little drivey crunch. It never failed or disappointed me. It's what I wanted in ANY drive/distortion pedal--versatility.
