Unleash the electrifying essence of rock ‘n’ roll history with the Fender Hammertone™ Fuzz pedal. This small but mighty stompbox embodies the quintessential fuzz tones that defined the musical landscape of the ’60s and ’70s, all wrapped in a vibrant, psychedelic, purple-tinted casing. The Hammertone™ Fuzz is powered by a Fender®-designed fuzz circuit, radiating saturation and sustain reminiscent of the seminal tracks that wrote the rulebook of rock.
While it may seem compact, this pedal is loaded with features that offer unparalleled tonal flexibility. Sporting three classic controls, two silicon diodes, and an octave fuzz mode, the Hammertone™ Fuzz not only emulates legendary tones but also provides an array of possibilities for musicians to craft their distinctive soundscapes.
The Hammertone™ Fuzz is inspired by the silicon fuzz units that marked the psychedelic sixties. It provides the desired classic tones, but with the benefit of lesser noise and the ability to crank up more volume. The Octave-Fuzz Mode is a key feature of this pedal, offering an additional octave-up fuzz circuit that packs more volume, more treble, and an electrifying, textural decay – a perfect accompaniment for spine-tingling leads or goosebump-inducing riffs.
One of the defining features of this pedal is its internal tone control. This feature, with an internal trim-pot, lets you dial down super-high frequencies to balance out bright-sounding amps or single-coil pickups, or simply to tailor your tone further. This tone-shaping powerhouse is decked with unique, custom-color “F” logo knobs. Echoing Fender’s historic custom colors, these knobs are not just visually striking but also offer excellent readability and grip – they truly stand out on stage.
Built for the road, the Hammertone™ Fuzz boasts a rugged aluminum enclosure and sturdy metal hardware, ensuring top-notch durability and reliability. To preserve the integrity of your sound, it comes with true bypass switching, allowing for easy setup and pristine tonal output. For added convenience, top-mounted input and output jacks are included, enhancing pedalboard real estate and routing options.
Powered by a 9-volt battery or a center negative AC adapter (not included), the Fender Hammertone™ Fuzz offers an input impedance of 500k ohms and a maximum output impedance of 5k ohms. The pedal’s power consumption is a mere 15mA. Compact yet mighty, the pedal measures 2.2″ in depth, 4.4″ in height, and 2.44″ in width.
