EARTHQUAKER DEVICES PARK FUZZ SOUND
EarthQuaker Devices, in collaboration with the newly-resurrected Park Amplification, have faithfully recreated the Park Fuzz Sound so that a new generation may enjoy it. The new Park Fuzz Sound uses a different set of NOS germanium transistors, hand-selected for a tonal match. Indeed, when A/B’d with the original unit, the sounds were strikingly similar. In fact, the staff at PGS was split right down the middle as to which was which. What’s more, when doing the test, EarthQuaker Devices had to set the new Park Fuzz Sound’s Fuzz control at about half, whereas the original was dimed. The reissue has way more range in the Fuzz dial than the original. The new Park Fuzz Sound is hand-made, one at a time in exotic Akron, Ohio. The pedal is wire for true bypass and accepts a standard 9v centre-negative Boss-style power adapter. The current draw is low, so it’s ready for your isolated power supplies.
1. Volume: This is the level control, louder to the right, quieter to the left.
2. Treble/Bass: This is the tone control, thicker tones to the right, brighter to the left.
3. Fuzz: This is the gain control, more fuzz to the right, less to the left.
