Overview

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.

Hot 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.

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

    Comments about TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Effect Pedal:

    Wow!!! I was either going to get this thing or a fuzz face And I am very glad I went this route… The plug both of them in and this one had more of a bite to it. A lot of fuzz distortion pedal's sound almost like a bass note being blasted through construction paper. There's not a whole lot of clarity to it and if you have a bunch of notes played at the same time... it's going to sound like mud. However this thing was completely different! Sounds almost like a cross between the old grunge boss distortion pedals that they used back in the 90s and a Dunlop fuzz face Hendrix reproduction. You can do a full six string cord and it will blend together without any sort of Missing frequencies. I have this going through an ES 175 And a Vox AC 15 And it is given me the perfect reproduction of the black keys and Wolfmother sounds. Very professional, very high-quality and really great sounding!

    Comments about TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Effect Pedal:

    As bassist growing up everything from ZZ Top, to The Strokes, to AC/DC, even Green Day, I got this metal box of joy to and a little wierdness to just have some fun. Somewhere inside those three knobs there is a sound that will, surprisingly, work for whatever you enjoy playing. If you are reading this, stop and get this pedal, you are REALLY missing out.

      Comments about TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Effect Pedal:

      Excellent silicon fuzz. Well built and sounds great with either a light amount of fuzz or a heavy amount. It can cover a lot of ground from something light like U2's Elevation, 90's Smashing Pumpkins, all the way up to doom/stoner/sludge like Monolord. In fact, this fuzz will absolutely nail the Monolord sound to a T and they use old school FZ-2's. It has a lot of gritty mids like a Hoof or Pharaoh but at only a fraction of the cost. The topside jack inputs, like all the TC Electronic retro analog pedals, makes it so it can fit nicely on nearly any board size. And the soft button switch means no loud, harsh clicking when you step on it. I don't understand the hate people have on these new TC Electronic retro analog pedals - I own a few and they're all really good.

      Comments about TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Effect Pedal:

      I got this for Christmas. It sounds super great. If you wanna get some black keys or white stripe sounds this is a good pedal. The annoying thing is the foot switch. It engages when you take your foot off so if you don't remember that your timing is off. Its not an issue for me but it could be to you. It isn't a big muf style its more like a fuzz face fyi.
