Fuzz Lands Pedal Wonderful Audio Technology Review

Fuzz Lands is a fuzz pedal that combines JFET, germanium, and silicon transistors to create a unique and interesting fuzz landscape. With two knobs and three toggles, it offers a wide variety of usable sounds that are extremely expressive and dynamic, with its own character, without being overwhelming. It's an extension of your tone. So, slow down, take a deep breath, and embrace the journey.

  • Encourages a relaxed, exploratory approach to discovering new and interesting tones.
  • Provides its own unique character while remaining an extension of your tone.
  • Features two knobs and three toggles, offering a wide variety of expressive and dynamic sounds.
  • Combines JFET, germanium, and silicon transistors for a distinctive and intriguing fuzz landscape.

Fuzz Lands Pedal Wonderful Audio Technology Controls

  • Volume: Controls the output of the pedal, and there is no shortage of output in the Fuzz Lands.
  • Fuzz: Usable along its entire sweep and works by changing the bias and gain of the fuzz. It is common practice to crank the fuzz with most fuzz pedals. However, I urge you to explore its whole range, for there are a lot of fun sounds that can be found in the lower as well as the higher gain settings.
  • Roots: Toggle from “Vintage” to “Modern” modes by switching in and out a JFET gain stage at the beginning of the circuit.
    • Toggle Up: “Vintage Mode”, where the JFET stage is bypassed. Classic fuzz sounds can be found here. Yes, it is susceptible to buffers; however… as any good fuzz should… it is extremely responsive to your guitar volume control just like a classic vintage fuzz. The pedal will have less gain overall and the lower settings will be less fuzzy and more like a treble booster or overdrive. Very fun!
    • Toggle Down: The JFET gain stage is enabled and we are in “Modern Mode”, less susceptible to buffers (pedal may get brighter with a buffer depending on your setup) with much more gain and a whole new set of unique and interesting textures. The JFET does a great job of really saturating the transistors and can push the fuzz into broken and gated sounds at extreme fuzz settings.
  • Earth: Changes the input frequency range.
    • Toggle Up: Up creates a tight, almost vocal quality for singing, sustaining leads, and cutting through the band mix.
    • Toggle Down: Thicker, fuzzier, classic, delicious.
  • Nature: Changes the overall character of the fuzz by adjusting the voltage feedback of the transistors.
    • Toggle Up: Gated and broken with just the right amount of sustain to still be usable for singing lead lines.
    • Toggle Middle: Smooth with just a touch of crispy crunchiness.
    • Toggle Down: Bendery… almost nasally… this one goes from overdrive to full fuzz.

There is an LED brightness trimmer inside. Adjust to taste.

Fuzz Lands Pedal Wonderful Audio Technology History

Fuzz Lands' history spans multiple years of development. I love fuzz, all kinds of fuzz, crazy and classic, and everything in between. What I find truly magical about a well-designed, classic-style fuzz pedal is that you can get so many different tones, textures, characters, and dynamics with just your fingers and the volume and tone controls on your guitar. There is something special about getting back to your rock roots with just a guitar, a fuzz pedal, and an amp.

I wanted to create my own classic fuzz that could cover a wide range of tones. But most importantly I wanted something that responded well to your playing dynamics. Something that has a lot of character on its own, while still allowing the character of your guitar to come through.

After studying the circuit topologies of various classic fuzz pedals and trying a bunch of different pedals, an idea started forming in my head... so, I started breadboarding. Fuzz Lands went through many different iterations before reaching its final form.

Fuzz Lands is not a direct clone of any other fuzz pedals out there. It is almost like a Fuzz Face and a Tone Bender had a baby and that baby became a rebel.

With a clean amp, you can get those bender fuzz-style snarling layers of tones. Put your amp on the edge of breakup you might find yourself in Fuzz Face territory.
