Two knobs, volume and depth. Couldn't really be simpler. It's no trouble at all to get the sound it's designed to make.

I'm playing a 1990s Japanese Tele '62 Custom RI and an SG Special faded, both equipped with Catswhisker pickups, into a Vox AC4TV for home use and a 1990s Peavey Classic 50 for stage use. What this pedal delivers is classic, nasty, Pebbles / Nuggets style mid-'60s fuzz of a kind which all the various smoothed-out Muff-type fuzzes on the market right now just can't do. This thing spits and snarls. What it also does is stack up superbly with other pedals - kick on a Tubescreamer or similar and you can go from garage-band nirvana to that late '60s Jimi vibe instantly. Noise? Yes, there's a little, but what do you expect from a fuzz? Plus there's zero tone suckage when the unit's off. The only reason I'm giving it a 9 is that it's not going to be for everybody - but if you're into the kind of sound it makes you can't go wrong.

Reliability : 10
The build seems rock-solid. I've got other pedals which feel worryingly flimsy (Electro-Harmonix, for example) and this is the polar opposite. There are still '60s Mosrite Fuzzrites around and working today (and going for ridiculous prices online) and I expect this Fuzzbrite to be just as hardy as the original.

Customer Support : 10
I've emailed Ashley Bass on a few occasions and the replies have always been extremely prompt and helpful. Can't be faulted, really.

Overall Rating : 10
I play everything from blues to '60s punk to noise-rock to alt-country and beyond, and have been playing for twenty-five years or so. Fuzz has been a favourite sound of mine since I first heard 'Satisfaction' and the Stooges, and I've been through a lot of stompboxes trying to get that sound without the muddy bass-heaviness of a lot of more modern fuzzes: finally I've found the pedal I was looking for. It's simple but perfect at what it does. If anything happened to it I'd get another in a second.

2 knobs. Best to set to 8 or above and there you have it.

Sound Quality : 10
I use this mostly for surf as this (as are most fuzzes) is/are not that versatile. Jazzmaster >> FUZZbrite >> Nova Delay >> amp with Tremolo and Reverb.

I have lots of fuzz boxes and this one is just plain fun! I like this or my byoc triangle muff for surf.

One important note is if you want it to sound like the old ones you need to get the cheap carbon/zinc batteries from the dollar store. Use modern batteries make the top end a bit piercing.

Reliability : No Opinion
Cant say. The components are in a clump of bondo (of chewing gum I cant tell), so like other gooped pedals you cant fix it IF it does go bad.

A great fuzz for what it does. I dont know why they put an LED on it as it is obvious when it is on and it just drains the battery faster. It would also be nice to offer two models with the option of a smaller box, but for how I use it the larger size is fine.

Two Knobs, input, output, on-off LED and AC input

Sound Quality : 9
As far as getting a good true 60's Fuzz sound that does not sound like every fuzz face clone out there this things excels and you'll be hard pressed to find better. For Instrumental fans of the Ventures, Shadows or Japanese Eleki sounds it's the bomb. At lower settings with the guitar volume turned down you can get very close to sitar sounds. Very Cool. Iron Butterfly to Neil Young to Takeshi Terauchi, can be subtle and twangy or over the top sustain and buzz.
I'm giving it a 9 because under the Harmony Central ratings 10 has "pristine" after it. This thing is too trashy sounding in a great way to call "pristine" and that's why it's so cool. It's true bypass as well for any of you who think that's dandy

Reliability : 10
I solder for a living and upon opening the unit to install a battery I was impressed by the neatness and good looking solder joints so I don't perceive any problems with reliability. It's built like they were 40 years ago, right. I've read some great comments on Ashley's customer service so the product is definitely backed up by someone who cares

I play a lot of styles of music with a lot of old wacky and not so wacky guitars. I bought this for 60's instrumental music and it does that extremely well and extremely convincing. You can't beat the price but if it were twice as much I'd still buy it (and I'm cheap when it comes to pedals) and if something happened to it I'd replace it immediately. There are a lot of sounds in this pedal. Didn't think I'd find something like this, with all the over engineered and over thought boutique pedals out there. This one's a perfect copy of the Mosrite and it's well executed.

What can I say, this pedal is one of a kind. Reproduces that classic mosrite 60's fuzz. My setup is fairly cheap, an ibanez hollowbody and a very cheap 15 watt amp. I just love the different sounds that come out of my setup. Really worth more than the price and cheaper than pulling a Link Wray on the speaker cones.

Reliability : 10
Haven't used it for that long, but it's a metal box that I'm sure can take some abuse. The only reason I would need a backup is if got stolen.

Easy to use, just on/off switch and two knobs, Volume and Depth, both of which can be used to shape it's sound, although I personally wouldn't use either of them much below 7 or 8.

Sound Quality : 10
I listen to and play predominantly Garage, psychedelic, rock 'n' roll/rockabilly. I mainly use a 60's re-issue Tele/Kay ET200 through either a Selmer Zodiac Twin Fifty or Laney 2x12 VC30. This pedal is without doubt, THE best fuzz I have used or heard, period. Forget Smooth Big Muff tones, this thing spits and grinds and sounds like your speakers are very close to ripping themselves apart! The top end is pretty dangerous, and with my Tele and Selmer it's enough to take the top of your head off, so maybe increasing the low end on your amp a bit would help prevent bleeding ears. This thing is pure 60's, and I would not be surprised at all if it was a germanium transistor, however we'll never know as Ashley Bass has coated it in some sort of putty stuff, presumably to protect against copies, which is more than fair enough! I usually use this with the volume knob about 7/8 and the depth around 9, as full whack is just a teeny bit too much if you actually want to hear the notes. Mine is the slightly upgraded version, with the orange LED, and supposedly true bypass, however the tone when this is off is slightly dulled, could possibly be wrong with just mine though as it has been gigged a lot!

Reliability : 7
I've had this for about half a year now and absolutely no problems until about 2 weeks ago when it made some nasty crackling noises and struggled to stay on, but i literally gave it a light kick and it's been fine since. It's built like a tank which stands to reason seeing as it is just a large box made of metal and I've used It at a lot of gigs with lots of sweaty and energetic spectators stamping on it and there's been no problems, would definitely use it without a backup, I already do! Also picks up Polish Radio but this is quite entertaining if you turn up your amp and tune it a bit with the two knobs.

Customer Support : 7
Haven't had to deal with Ashley Bass and I don't think I will have to anytime soon, the website is good though and it was packaged nice and snug and shipped very promptly.

Overall Rating : 9
I bought this because a friend told me about how amazing his was, and he was right! I've been playing nearly 10 tears and this is hands down my favourite and most used pedal. I also own a Big Muff Pi which I bought before this in search of a 60's sounding fuzz pedal and it's ok, but it's nothing compared to the FUZZbrite. Apparantly the Yardbirds used one at some point, which makes sense as this pedal is 60's to the core, not only in sound quality but looks too. It's also extremely loyal to the original Mosrite Fuzzrite in both design and sound (there is a recording on the Ashbass website of the same riff played through both an Ashbass and a Mosrite and they're identical) This pedal is perfect for any Garage/psychedelic player, and also good for more modern grungey/trashy stuff (think ***** Galore if you've heard them). If this were stolen I would be EXTREMELY P*SSED OFF!, but I would definitely buy another, no doubt. One last thing, this pedal just creates fuzz riffs on it's own, this thing makes it easy! Buy one and try it, and if it goes wrong just kick it!

I've been searching for this pedal for 25 years, and I've had a lot of fuzz pedals and wasted a lot of money in the process.
This is pure 60s garage. If you're looking for that heavy metal wall of smooth syrupy distortion look elsewhere. This has teeth, and you can play riffs without the notes getting all cosy together under a warm blanket. This thing wants to stand up and scream!
I love the way the fuzz breaks down after the note, not hanging around like an unwanted fart.

This is a great fuzztone. Straight forward with no bells and whistles. Volume and Depth pots and a true bypass circuit. 9volt adapter jack is a nice touch.

Sound Quality : 8
The fuzz is genuine no matter what amp I am using. Mostly twin reverb with JBL's or a 69 Bassman with two 15's. Even works great trough my Kustom sidewinder. Using my Gretsch with Hilotrons is a little weak but all my other guitars make the fuzz more than adequate. Only weak point seems to be roll off on the depth pot, other than that the pedal is flawless.

Reliability : 6
The unit is well built and the case is indestructable. Only concern on reliability is the components being buried in bondo. Makes it almost imposible to field repair if it ever needed it. So one might be smart to have a back up just in case.

I play mostly 60's and early 70's rock and a lot of contemporary Gospel. This pedal definitely gets the "Ventures" fuzz as well as the Stones and Iron Butterfly. I have been playing for 45 years. I would probably buy another one but would try and see if they could keep the bondo off. I compared it to a Maestro fuzztone. Sound is better and the 9volt system is a plus. Also tried and fuzzface and big muff. This is still a better sound even with the few little problems.

There's not a whole lot to this guy, two knobs.

Sound Quality : 9
Here's my setup: A custom built Jazzmaster (GFS Wild Dog oversized humbuckers w/coil split) into a Fender Supersonic (wonderfully versatile all tube amp that I cherish) cranked between 6 and 10 (depending) w/ a hot plate attenuator ...and some other pedals in the train (big muff, blue box, so on) but we're here to talk about the Fuzzbrite.

If you're after that thick, bassy, cream drenched fuzz like the Big Muff Pi, then don't bother. This thing just seethes and buzzes and spatters, I can't get enough of it. It's a pretty right on recreation of that old famous Mosrite pedal based directly on an original, in terms of recreation I'd give it a ten (think Davie Allen and the Arrows, a whole lot of the Nuggets bands, the little fuzz parts in the Stooges' 1969, Swamp Rats to some extent, though not quite...). I'm knocking it down to an 8 because the thing's primative (intentionally so), a little noisy, depending on what guitar I use it can be difficult to keep the treble below something murderous (think hat pin to the eardrum), and there's not a whole lot of versatility. But I'm bumping it back up to a 9 for the fact that Ashely improved the original design by making it true bypass.

The output of your pickups seems to have quite an effect on it, my overwound Strat (10k bridge pop) and humbuckered Jazzmaster get a strong, solidified zzzzzz with some breakup as the notes fade, whereas my vintage output Tele gets some more breakup and spit and seems to stop dead once the note starts to fade out, similar to what I've noticed in some of those old garage singles. Also, when wide open, I get a bit of this white noise over the top of my power chords. It can be controlled a little, and I personally welcome it to a degree, but you let that do what you wish to my rating.

Reliability : 10
I've had it about a year and there have been two times this pedal hasn't worked for me. Once was because I didn't change the batteries. The other time, during a show in Minneapolis, I had noticed the nut coming lose on the output jack and tightened it. This had rotated the jack a bit, and it wound up coming in contact with the volume pot (to which it is very close, apparently), which cut the signal (shorted it out?). I feared the worst but when I got it home, took it apart, and saw what simple fix it was, I was totally relieved; this pedal may be a third of the ebay price of the original Mosrites, but a hundred bucks is still a lotta scratch.

Additionally, it's a big metal box. You'd have to subject it to Nazi torture methods to break it. Or stupidly drop it *directly* onto the volume knob from halfway up a flight of stairs onto concrete like I did (bent it slightly, but broke the plastic knob cover)--Works fine. ;)

Customer Support : No Opinion
You'll probably have to repair it yourself since the company is just the dude who builds these.

Overall Rating : 10
The band I play it in is sort of my friends and I's inept attempt at a Birthday Party / Stooges / Pussy Galore kinda thing, a lotta Nuggets/Pebbles influence. And in my case some Blind Willie Johnson and the like, though I never seem to use the Fuzzbrite when I'm playing slide--don't know why not!

If you want some '60s fuzz that's just mean and spits razors then this is a solid bet. It's a one trick pony, as others have mentioned, but damn it's a great one. Great for stinging leads, groovy hooks, or raunchy noise.

I give it a ten overall because not only is it an improvement over the original (true bypass), it's a third of the price, and the sound is killer.

Sounds good for what it does, but what all these reviews fail to mention is that this is basically an Octafuzz. When at full depth, it is exactly an Octafuzz. You hit two notes together and it screeches (yes, I realize that's what an octafuzz does). At lower depth levels you do get "normal" fuzz sounds, but not what you'd consider "fuzz" to be. I can get better "Satisfaction" tones from my Keeley Fuzz Head. This isn't a total knock for the Fuzzbrite. I guess it does what it is designed to do, but all the previous reviews have not given the whole story. The octave effect ruins it. Based on these reviews I thought I'd be drenched in badass fuzz. Instead it's an unpleasing assault on my ears. Not even close to Satisfaction. Kind of close to Iron Butterfly, but harsher sounding.

Great sound. You can get stuff ranging from 60's surf, garage, and that screeching Raw Power sound. I'm using it through a Fender Deville 2x12 combo, alongside a tremelo pedal, and using a strat.Sounds cool combined with the tremelo. Good for the psych, acid rock, punk vibe.

I play 60's influenced garage punk.It sounds great for the stuff I'm into, which is stuff like the Sonics, Yardbirds, Standells, Pretty Things. If I were to have to replace it I would definitely get another. It beats paying 300 bucks for an original 60's Mosrite Fuzzrite. The one thing that would make it easier to use would be a battery compartment, so you wouldn't have to open up the bottom and expose all the wiring to get to the battery. This pedal is awesome though. A lot of fun, which is what playing rock and roll is all about.

Only two knobs here (Volume and Depth, which is sort of a combination fuzz amount/tone in that the the more you turn it up the louder and brighter the fuzz gets). Two knobs is easy, but they're mounted on the FRONT of the box, not on the top, so it ain't perfect ergonomics.

Sound Quality : 10
If you're looking for a fuzz along the lines of a Big Muff or Superfuzz, you've picked the wrong the horse; this is a classic angry kazoo buzz bomb along the lines on the original Maestro Fuzz Tone, and the Mosrite Fuzzrite, of which this particular pedal is based on.

Sustain? Not much. Godzilla Fart lows? Nope. Massive increase in volume when engaged? Uh-uh. But this fuzz is still plenty fun and musical without being shrill, having a rounded tone that can sound like a sax or sitar when dialed in right. Ever hear the fuzz on old Ventures songs, like "The 2000 pound Bee"? This fuzz'll do it, no prob.

Having played an original Fuzzrite before, I can say with some authority that Ashbass has got it nailed, but maybe with a little more volume when cranked. It also does that same neat thing old Fuzz Faces do, in that you can clean up the fuzz when you roll back your guitars' volume knob.

Reliability : No Opinion
Too new to tell; a friend has had one of these for a while with no problems. Personally, I wouldn't mind a little more wire for the individual connections inside, or maybe have the mystery circuit (covered in epoxy so's nobody can copy it--it looks like a big glob of Wrigley's chewing gum) mounted to something, rather than just floating there. Maybe it helps the tone; I dunno.

I've got oodles of Fuzz boxes! Stuff from Boss, DOD, Way Huge, Z Vex, Voodoo Lab, Danelectro, Electro-Harmonix, etc, etc. THIS pedal is the closest ever to getting that old-school fuzz I've coveted ever since I used a borrowed Maestro Super Fuzz Tone for a few months while on tour. This little box already has a place in my heart, and it will certainly be used often around here. Plus, for the price, it can't be beat!

Just got it from my freind for my B-day present two weeks ago.
Quite good-looking fella with 2 knobs (volume and intensity).
True bypass.
Nothing special, just a vintage looking fuzz.
No manual included.
Knobs stays fine when tweaking.
Very easy to get some Freaky sounds from the 60's!
Not like the 70's style fuzz, It has some nasty robotic buzz Fuzz!
Which I prefer than modern junk ****.
Very nice tonality!

Like I said above, its very nasty fella with balls!
Not too heavy and creamy or bassy, Its rather tonally well balanced than any other vintage fuzz(like Fulltones, Frantone, Dallas-Arbiter, RogerMayer).
Since this one appeared, my favourite pedal was RM Voodoo-1 and the Cusack Screamer Fuzz. Now I mainly use this baby for some nasty solos and funk rythm.

Some might say that this pedal lacking the tone knob is a miss, BuT!
ppl who say they need a tone knob for this kinda pedal is a no-brainer in rock'nroll history or a just a Metal-head.

I'm using with Fender Hotrod deluxe and DR.Zs. Man..

Thnk to my friend(thnx dude), I finaally got what I was looking for copying John Frusciantes solos.(in Dani California)

For 60s fuzz and maybe a very robotic and powerful funky solos its a MUST HAVE.

I said too much.

Just go and dig it up on Ebay.

Ash sells it only for a fraction of any other s****y fuzz pedals on the market.

Can you believe that after listening to my plays my engineer actualy thought fuzzbrite as a Fuzzrite?

And I heard some licks using Fuzzrite, My Fuzzbrite is more clearer than the original!haha!

Thnx Chris

I have been playing rock, blues, jazz, even metal.. for 9years professionally.

And I had many chances to get to play with many boutique pedals and rack mounted effectors.

And I tell you, this is the by-far the best FUZZ I ever played!
Its not FUZZ pedal for modern stuff(in my opinion) but for any 60s garage rock and PSYCDELICs, 80-90s new wave music.. its jjust got-to-go pedal.

I had a chance to play a Original Morsite Fuzzrite, but Fuzzbrite is like just the same as in quality but for the 3times less the price.

Its well suited for Hendrix style too.
I had 3 Roger Mayer Fuzz pedals and Fulltones' . Fulltones are useless. comparing to this one.
Roger mayer got a point on its own though.
So I keep the Rogermayer and the FuzzBrite.

Guys..

Try it.

SD tweak fuzz and Bigmuff would be 0.0005 point comparing to this

many people find RAT a good distortion and a fuzz.
but my friend.
You have a long way ahead of you for a real tone.

If you are mature enough for looking for a real good sounding Fuzz not the brand name.

This might be your choice.

Did I mention that I had 14 Fuzz pedals?


Ash should sell this pedal for like $350..

I can hit the Seeds tone I've been searching for, but it's taking me longer to get the Music Machine and Jesus and Mary Chain fuzz. So far, I think I made a wise purchase and will get most of what I want over time. My sweet spot so far is at the Fuzzbrite 8-10 depth, 6-9 volume, and amplifier at volume 5+. Treble/bass controls also make a big difference.

I first tried it with a cheap practice SS amp and it definitely improved the sound, but did not come close to what I was looking for. When I chained it to my Selmer Treble & Bass 50 Mk III and warmed up the valves, I knew everything was gonna be alright. I use it with a an old Framus baritone with two single coil pickups.

My cabinet is an old B&H speaker cab with a Goodmans Audiom 51 Green 20 UK/40 USA watt 16 ohm 1960's speaker, closed back and it has an an already amazing sustain on it's own, and adds extra bite to the Fuzzbrite.

I submitted a review for the Fuzzbrite a few days ago but it never got posted. I tried to email Harmony Central regarding this but I cannot find a contact link other than to the webmaster which just sent the email back to me undelivered twice. So, I'm going to give it another try...The pedal does not come with a manual but it really is not needed. Simple instrument in and outs with ac adapter port along with volume and depth control knobs. The pedal features true bypass and I really think it sounds best when running off of a carbon battery (germanium transistors?). This pedal is super easy to use.

Sound Quality : 10
The Fuzzbrite is basically an updated clone of the Mosrite Fuzzrite pedal. Having never owned a Fuzzrite pedal I cannot judge how close the Fuzzbrite is to an original but I do know this is definitely the 60's buzz fuzz sound I was looking for in allowing me to obtain those cool psychedelic fuzz tones I grew up with. I can easily get the Satisfaction, Psychotic Reaction, Yarbirds tones that just cannot be had from other fuzz pedals. In used to own a Verbatone Verbafuzz pedal which I thought did a pretty close job of obtaining those tones but the Ashbass Fuzzbrite blows that pedal away.

Reliability : 9
The pedal seems to be very well made although I did add some stick-on feet to the bottom so the pedal won't slide around when I'm using the footswitch. I would have no fears of using it without a backup.

I have been playing more years than I want to admit to. I'm not going to list all my gear here, but basically Fender Strats into various tube amps and several other pedals. If lost or stolen I would without question purchase another one. I love how easy it is to get great fuzz tones out of this pedal. I very highly recommend this pedal to anyone seeking that 60's psychedelic buzz tone!

In my search for a certain guitar tones I have tendency to go through several pedals in my quest for an elusive sound. I have been searching for the right kind of fuzz that will give me that 60's psychedelic fuzz sound (Psychotic Reaction, Yardbirds, Satisfaction...the buzz fuzz sound). I thought I had found it a while back with the Verbafuzz pedal which when tweaked right would come really close to that sound...yet it still didn't quite nail it. After checking out the sound clips and although having never owned a Mosrite Fuzzrite pedal I figured I'd give the Fuzzbrite a try. Wow, this definitely nails the elusive sound! I think it sounds best with a carbon type battery (possibly germaniums?). It sound terrific with the rest of my set up. Mostly running various strats through various effects and amps.

Couldn't really compare it to others, the originals are out of the question. I can only compare it to records and it's the same sound.

The pedal gives that distinct 60's sound just like the Stones. You can also turn the tone all the way down on your guitar and turn the knobs all the way up on the pedal to get a very rich/creamy sound. I currently play it out of a Marshall MG series amp. It sounds really cool before a Wah pedal, too.

Two knobs: Volume and Depth. Depth controls the bias of the fuzz. Volume controls the gain. Very easy to get a good sound out of. No manual, none necessary.

True-bypass and built in AC jack are very nice touches, essential for a 9-volt-free pedalboard.

Does only one thing and does it very well: FUZZ! Not especially tweakable, but at the same time it has a lot of range. You can go from a huge, chunky, wall-of-fuzz to trebly, nasal, mosquito tones. If there's a fuzz tone in your head, you can probably get it out of this pedal. Contains all the classic sounds from all those Nuggets-type singles and many of the Stones and Mudhoney sounds as well.

I am using a Gibson L6-S through an Ampeg VL-502 through a 2x12. FuzzBrite plays very well with other pedals, surprisingly, allowing for some even bigger "cascading" fuzz and distortion tones. Try it with a clean boost or a linear power booster in front for some seriously out-of-control tones.

Not particularly noisy, especially for a fuzz. There is noise at high-gain settings, but... it's a mid-60's fuzz clone! That's part of the deal.

Oh... I forgot to say that this pedal sounds FANTASTIC! I had a big smile on my face the first time I plugged it in. Excellent.

I play punk-influenced rock music (Mudhoney, Pixies, Buzzcocks, etc.) This pedal fits into my sound well. I have been playing for 13 years. I've been through a lot of equipment. Other pedals on the board at the moment are my beloved Keeley Katana, Electro-Harmonix LPB-1, Big Muff Pi (Sovtek Green), Small Stone (Sovtek Green) and Analogman-modded Boss DD-6.

If the Fuzzbrite were stolen or lost, I would get another one. I've tried a lot of other fuzztones over the years and have been disappointed with all but this and the Everman Audio FuzzDrive (which is a little more of a Swiss Army Knife). The Fuzzbrite is the most honest and authentic fuzz I've heard from a boutique maker, blows the mass-produced fuzzes out of the water, and the price is very reasonable.

The only thing I wish the Fuzzbrite had is an on/off LED. Not really a big deal, and not really necessary for a pedal with such a distinctive sound.

If you want the FUZZ, this is the pedal. No B.S. No contest. Enjoy!

This thing has the authentic sound of the original Fuzzrites and it you don't have to take out a second mortgage on your house to get one!
Nokie Edwards(of The Ventures)used one of these from the late 60s onward. It has a very raw and trashy sound sound, it almost makes your amp sound like its broken, which I like. It really "electrify's" your sound. It makes your guitar sound powerful. It sounds it's best when driven with a couple of soapbars. You absolutely cannot find a better fuzzz on the market today. This is a 60s Fuzz. I've been searching for a Fuzz like this since I was a teenager but I never could afford a Fuzzrite since they are so rare. I never noticed any buzzing or humming, its very quiet and when disengaged it doesn't change the sound of my guitar. With the depth set all the way up it really gives you a lot of bite. I tested it with a Dillion DMG75 with Mosely pickups in it. Overall, I LOVE THE SOUND OF THIS THING!!!

It's build very solid. The switch seems pretty hefty and all. I like the position of the knobs, they are like the original Fuzzrites, however I can see how they might get broken off so you'd want to be careful where you place it on stage. But I still wouldn't have it any other way. As far as having a backup, my effects chain consists of:
1) Boss MT-2 Metal Zone; 2) DOD 250 Preamp; 3) Rocktron Austin Gold; 4) Rocktron Pulse Tremelo; 5) Ibanez Tone-Lok DE7 Delay/Echo; 6) Danelectro Spring King Reverb; 7) Boss RV-5 Reverb. Since I have three other overdrive/distortion units I think I'd be ok...but if I didn't need those other pedals for certain songs I would trust the Fuzzbrite by it's self. But I won't really know until I actually practice with it and take it on a few gigs. I know I'll definately be recording with it. So I won't rate this until I've tested it in the field.

I'm 22 years old and have been playing since I turned 13. I grew up listening to older music and I learned to play by listening to my dad's Ventures LPs. I'm very old fashioned and I don't like hardly newer music. I have owned so many guitars since I started playing that I've got a pretty good idea what to look for, of course everyone's opinion is different. I've played Jazzmasters, Strats, Teles, Les Pauls, SGs, Mosrites(my dad's), 335s, Parkers...etc...my arsenal now consists of a Yamaha EG303 with California Lace Sensor pickups, Planet Waves Trim-Lock tuners, Trem-setter Tremelo Stabilizer..etc..., a standard Telecaster, a Jay Turser(Rickenbacker copy w/ Ric pickups)12 string, a Les Paul, Eastwood HiFlyer, and a Dillion DMG75. (That's my electric setup. I don't have time to talk about my acoustic guitars) I play mostly my own original music but if I were going to try to define the style I would say somewhere between The Ventures, Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, The Band, and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers is where you'll find my stuff.

Well its in a metal casing so it will last. It doesnt look like the pedal will break anytime soon.

I found that this effect plays well with every other box in my chain (delay, phase, OD, whatever) but it seems to sound better when it is placed before my Wah. Wah before FuzzBrite equals Mush but FuzzBrite before Wah equals tonal bliss. Pretty much the standard location for any good Fuzz.
There is absolutely no noise or hiss when it's on (just it's own fuzziness)and clear sailing when off. Not even a hint that it's even there.
I'm currently using this with a Solid State Fender Bassman it sounds great. Sustain until the cows come home, and plenty of gain/volume on tap. I have the Volume set to 7-8 and the Depth to 8 and with only minor adjustments to my guitar's volume knob, I can get a wide range of tones from old-school OD, to 60's biker/spaghetti westerns, to modern day crazy. All within a few quick twists of two knobs. No 3, 4, or more needed with this box.

Reliability : 9
The FuzzBrite is stuffed into a solid steel, little larger than normal, Hammond Box. It's got some girth, but not in a bad way and all of the jacks/plugs seem to be top-of-the-line.
I haven't dug around the insides yet but outside of the missing foam & battery support, it seems to be all right.
Yeah, I would gig without a backup. As a matter of fact, it seems that this FuzzBrite would survive with the coachroaches if the big one ever hit.

Ashley was very personalable and quickly answering any and all of my questions. I wondered if the FuzzBrite could be used with a standard Boss style adapter, 'cause the old Germaniums need a reverse type or you blow up the box and I didn't want to ruin a good thing. Anyway, I received a personal response the same day explaining that the Boss style would work fine and that he/she is currently using one with a MT-2 after the FuzzBrite.

I'm currently playing what used to be called "Alternative". You know, Nirvana, Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, Helmet, etc. This pedal may not be a good match for modern-day cover bands but with some creative tweaking this could be the anti-Big Muff Pi that finally gives me my own unique tone.
I've been playing both bass and guitar for about 4 years and my current setup is the following:
Ashbass FuzzBrite-->Crybaby Classic-->ProCo Rat-->MXR Phase 90-->Boss DD-3-->Fender Bassman
If this Fuzz was ever stolen, I'd definately buy another one. I believe that this is definately my "never leaves the board" fuzz.
I love the tone, size and durability but would like to see the knobs in a easier to reach place for quick changes on the fly. Not a big deal, just takes a little longer to the tone your audience will love.
I've been on a hunt for fuzz since I first picked up a guitar. Frankly, all of that mushy, no-mids, bass heavy Fuzz left me constantlt wanting more. So after going through many mass-produced and botique fuzzes this hand-built wonder finally ended my quest for fuzz.
This is a GREAT fuzz. Although it may not be the Fuzz for everyone or good for modern music cover bands, it will lead you to create music and new and very interesting ways.
Hey, for the value the AshBass FuzzBrite just can't be beat.
I hope that AshBass continues to grow and will start to offer additional effects on par with this one.

I play surf, rockabilly, and rock n' roll. The pedal is a really good match for that equiptment.
I've been playing for about 10 years. I play mostly Gretsch and Danelectro guitars through Fender amps.
I would buy it again if it was stonlen or lost.
The pedal absolutely matches the Moserite tone.
It helps me make music because it makes you play differently with this kind of obscure tone. I think Buck Owens used that Moserite pedal too.
Kind of limiting because of the tone, but if you're buying it for a copy of the Moserite pedal than you know what you're getting yourself into. Overall, a great pedal

I love the Ashbass Fuzzbrite!

I've used the Fuzzbrite with 2 different Fender vintage Strats, a vinage 50' Fender Tele & a Gibson Les Paul 50'. They were all swithed
between a Marshall Stack with El '34 Tubes.

The Fuzzrite does play well with other pedals, no problems at all. Its directly a great Fuzz in any setting you will set!
You can really change the color of the tones with the 2 controls.

Now I know how John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers gets his lead-sound for his live soloing parts (with the fuzzrite)!!

It really cuts through!

This is a spitty gritty fuzz. I bought it a few months ago and I haven't heard anything this raw before or after. It's a cool sound and is easy to push over the top of anything.

I don't know of any famous artists who use this. I wanted some fuzz and this one sounded like a choice.

I'm using a strat knock-off into an old Crate micro-stack. The pedal sounds great through it and is in a different world than the built in distortion.

It's noisy when turned up but so is the amp's distortion.

Amp using see above

Reliability : No Opinion
It seems sturdy. I got worried after ready the rewiew below and emailed ashbass about those things. I got an answer back the next day and was told this.
"the only unconnected wires I can imagine are those coming out of the circuit blob. Be assured that inside the blob where everything comes together, all connections are tight and soldered up nicely. If the aesthetics bother you, you can snip off any one of the the 'loose' wires (not both of course) and the pedal will work because those wires are connected inside the circuit. So either of them can be used as hot.

The original FUZZrite pedals had a block of foam inside that the battery sat on so that when the battery door was closed the battery was pushed down into it. That kept it from moving around. Any household material will work similarly to hold the battery in place."

I had the battery taped in before but I put some cloth from a tshirt for it to rest on and it doesn't move. So I'm ok.

Two knobs for volume and depth (fuzz). They work off of each other, so although it's only 2 knobs, you can dial up a good range of tones.

Sound Quality : 9
I love the fuzz this box gets! It really does the mid 60's thing to the T!
I've used this pedal with 3 different Strats, a Tele Thinline, and a Gibson SG with 59's. They were all swithed between a Fender Blues Deluxe, 70's Champ, and a Traynor with EL34s.
Once I dialed the depth to match the guitar's natural tone, the fuzz was perfect. It has a good blend of buzz and splatter. If I turn the depth low, the sound gets very loose and splattery... very low-fi. If I turned it all the way up, I noticed harmonic jumps and electronic-sounding blips as I picked notes. It's a very dirty electrical sound, maybe just usable in certain situations.
The Fuzzrite does play well with other pedals, no problems at all. I tried a power supply and a carbon battery, and there was only a very slight detectable difference between the two. The power supply made the treble stand out a little more, and it sounded slighlty more brittle. Nothing bad, just an observation!
The fuzz comes easier with a 6V6 or 6L6 powered amp. EL34's were a little more immune to the pedal, and it took a little extra volume to get the same effect as a Fender-style amp.
The fuzz is easily controlled by the guitar's volume knob, however it doesn't clean up entirely well.
Although I don't see this pedal as a fuzz with a wide range of usuable tones, the one tone it was meant to get is absolutely incredible, hence my "9" rating.

Reliability : 8
I've had no issues up until now, so things are looking good. I did notice some components were soldered without being twisted together. Common sense says that's not the best practice, so we'll see in 10 years.
Also, my one major gripe with this pedal is that there's no battery retainer or clip! Having a 9-volt bounce around inside of this box seems like trouble waiting to happen.
The case is definately durable. The word "tank" comes to mind.

I love this pedal and use it often. With a fuzz pedal collection numbering 12, this is currently in my top 3 next to a Roger Mayer Spitfire and E-H Hot Tubes. If you play garage, 60's, or surf, this pedal will help you achive personal stardom. It also works well for other genres with a little creativity and know-how. It works well with any guitar pick-up and any amp, so there's no excuses! This is a great pedal that fills a void in the fuzz realm. Most other pedals use silicon transistors that all sound the same, or they're trying to get to the Fuzz Face Holy Grail. It's nice to play with this fuzz in the chain.
Aside from the lack of a battery clip, and a slightly limited usuability, this is a perfect pedal. I am still a little on edge with the construction methods, especially with a battery hanging loose in the case, but I tend to like things overbuilt.

I've used the Fuzzbrite with my Sovtek Mig-50 and various Gibsons and Fenders. This pedal is excellent. It is not a smooth fuzz, however, it excells at being greasy and nasty. It is pretty flexible as far as the range of sounds that are available if you experiment. I love the fact that the Fuzzbrite is different from the masses of bass heavy, mushy fuzzes out there. Don't get me wrong, I love those too, however, the Fuzzbrite is a welcome change. It really cuts through!

Reliability : No Opinion
The inside of the Fuzzbrite looks very well made, at least the parts that I can see. The crucial tone section is encased in what looks like a giant ball of already chewed wrigleys fruit flavored gum. A necessary measure to protect proprietary secrets no doubt. I have not had it long but I am sure it will last, if not, I am sure Ashley would fix it if something went wrong. Based on the amount of time I have owned it, I will not rate the reliability.

Simplicity and performance. They don't get much easier than this with 2 controls - Volume and Depth. Yet, with just 2 controls you get a very wide range of fuzz tones and they are actually usable. Way easier to find pleasing fuzz settings than say the Mercer Box by Jacques, or The Sweet with their 4 knob dual germanium transistor design. The 4 knob pedals can take many hours to work out the right settings to get usable tones. The Fuzzbrite is far eaier to dial in several very distinct fuzz tones.

Sound Quality : 10
I have used this pedal with a Marshall SLP Reissue and a 70's Fender Bassman and come up with classic fuzz tones on both. I have not tried it into an amp with a distortion channel, so I am not sure how it would sound in that set up. This pedal works equally well with my Les Paul or 52 Reissue Telecaster. Use this pedal with a Tele, and you will see how Jimmy Page got the sound he did on Zep's first album. You can also get Jack White's heavy fuzz tones, if you max it up. You can really change the color of the tones with the 2 controls.

Reliability : 10
Have only had this a short while, so my opinions are based on the examination of the unit. Simple design and sturdy box. Resistors set in a solid lump of epoxy (?) compound, so it looks very solid. Soldering very clean. I was a bit concerned that the battery might rattle around inside the box (there was no battery clip) so I duct-taped it to the side to ensure the battery would not bang against any of the components inside the box when moved around.

I play classic rock, and this is an essential pedal to have in the arsenal. I have another Fuzz, a boutique germanium transistor pedal which took me weeks to dial in, but I was able to easily find some great fuzz tones on the FUZZbrite in minutes. This pedal nails the Sabbath, Zeppelin and Hendricks sounds. In 20 years, this will be the TS808 everyone is throwing hundreds of dollars at. This pedal is a bargain at the price, and sounds as good as anything out there. The germanium fuzz pedals may have a wider array of wierd sounds, but for an outstanding range of classic fuzz tones, you cannot beat this one.

I play rock and blues and have always liked the fuzz effect; especially found in 60's - 70's R&R. Been playing (off/on) for years and recently started playing on a more regular basis: garage-quality. Fuzzbrite is to be used with everything from a '59 Melody Maker, mid-60's Silvertone, as well as Telecaster and Charvel rigs. If the unit, in time, proves itself reliable, I certainly would replace it if something happens to it. So far, so good. A very nice product and a good value. Buy one, if you want to get fuzzy.

I play a Dillion Mosrite copy through a Vox 30 watt valvetronix and it sounds fantastic!

2 knobs: "Blend" & "Volume" -- pretty easy.

Sound Quality : 9
This is a very bright fuzz that accentuates the high mids, it is a welcome change from the whole sludgy darkfest that makes up the Big Muff camp. Like anything, I'm sure it will depend on your amp. This type of pedal would seem to be perfect match for a darker amp, although I like running it through my '60's Epi Pacemacer, but I like the high end. Makes me want to grab a Mosrite & run it through a Vox...

The blend knob on this is interesting, is actually usefull. The minimum setting is pretty a straight distortion/fuzz effect mixed with your signal & the maximum yeilds a complete un-blended el-splatto fuzz. This is not one of those heavily gated fuzzes.

My only critique is the volume of the pedal -- I leave it on 10 & it is not enough. I have never played an original Fuzzrite, but the volume of the pedal seems in line with other vintage units, so I really can't complain.

This is actually a very versatile pedal. I can see somebody using this as their stand alone distortion on the minimum settings without it reading as "fuzz", but at higher settings yeilds sizzle & splat.

Over all a really nice pedal.

Wow! This fuzz is incredible, i've owned tons of old fuzzes and this was an instant favorite.
Very fuzzy/splatty buzzy sounding.
The only fuzzes i can really compare it to are the Roland Bee-Baa and the Lovetone Big Cheese. It sounds quite a bit like the Bee-Baa when the bee-baa is set for lower gain. Still the Fuzzbrite has more "splat" in it's sound than the bee-baa.

On the one hand, it's easy to use - 2 knobs and an on/off swich, but on the on the other hand, to use a fuzz pedal like this and to find the right 'context' for a fuzz that is this nasty is kind of hard. It's not the pedal's fault - it's the nature of the mosrite type of fuzz family. I have played through a sanner fuzzrite and this nails it to a tee - AND it's true bypass and it's got a boss style 9v adapter. I wish it had a light to tell me when it was on - oh wait, when this thing is on - there is no mistaking that it is on!

Sound Quality : No Opinion
This thing sounds amazing. Some people may be put off by the sound coming out of it - too fuzzy, not musical, but not true - if, and this is a big IF, if you know how to use it. Fuzzes like this in the right hands can be effects of glory - think Neil Young leads, think Dave Allen, think the Ventures, think Biker chicks, think I can't get no satisfaction, think Yardbirds, think spirit in the sky, and you will get an idea of what can be done with a pedal such as this.

The way that I use it - is the following - I use the neck pickup on my strat with a bit of the treble rolled off and I make sure that most of the reverb on my amp is dialed out. I then roll off the volume on my guitar just a tad to make the pedal hungry for signal. Like this I can comp chords and get some nice stuff going - then when I need some blistering lead work I turn up the volume and away she goes...!

Another way that I've used it - I use a Jacques Trininity filter pedal with the rate going really sloooow and I feed this into the fuzz and then into a trem pedal - and I can get some massively awesome oscilating fuzz chops that go up and down - it's really quite psychedelic!

Great copy of the fuzzrite - it's mean, it's nasty, but it's tamable if that's what you want. It's not a fuzz face pedal and it's not an overdrive or a distortion pedal. It's in a class all by itself. It's not a pedal you would use on every song, but for those occasions when you need to turn heads or for recording a singular riff - there she is. I'm still discovering what it can do....

I play surf guitar. I use a DiPinto Galaxie 4 guitar through a vintage Boss OD-1, the FUZZbrite by ashbass and an Ibanez AD99 analog delay. These pedals are plugged into a Fender '63 Vibroverb reissue amp with a custom made Jenkins extention cabinet with two 10 inch Oxford speakers. If you've ever heard The Ventures fuzz guitar sound, particularly "The 2000 Pound Bumble Bee" (Parts 1 and 2) they exclusively used the Mosrite FUZZrite for all their songs requiring that "fuzz" sound. Ashley Bass has faithfully recreated the vintage Mosrite fuzz by using the exact same circuit and parts as the original and takes it a step further by adding a True-Bypass on/off switch to preserve your natural tone along with a standard 9v AC adapter jack to make it easy to incorporate into your pedal board or simply save on batteries.

I play 60's style retro surf music, the FUZZrite works perfectly for this. I've been a playing guitar for 30 years and over this time I have become a tone freak! I refuse to plug my guitar into anything that will squash my tone. I also use an American made 1962 Fender Jazzmaster reissue and a Fender Stratocaster 12 string. If this pedal was lost or stolen, I woul replace it in a heartbeat.

There is no peach fuzz with the Fuzzbrite. Playing a Dillion DM75 w/Mosrite pickups, this unit makes the clean channel of a Marshall MG50dfx sound like the overdrive channel. Great drive & sustain on southern rock leads. I don't know what the origional Mosrite Fuzz pedal sounded like, but who cares, this sound is classic.

First of all, right out of the box, this pedal looks like it was made in 1970. I don't know about the long run, but with the heavy duty switch and brushed metal housing, it looks like this thing was built to last.

This is THE Mosrite Fuzzrite sound. Period. It's the only fuzz I've found that sounds EXACTLY like my old long gone (sob) Mosrite Fuzzrite pedal I bought around 1968. The Mosrite fuzz box was used by both Danny Weis and Erick Braunn on the first 4 Iron Butterfly albums. If you like that sound-here it is! When I use this pedal with an Eastwood Mosrite Ventures copy with P-90's I can duplicate the Iron Butterfly sound EXACTLY when played through a Vox amp. (A Mosrite Ventures model was used on those first 4 albums).This pedal also sounds great with every one of my other guitars (see below). Sounds much more like a real vintage Fuzzrite than the Sanner Fuzzrite I got rid of, which was very weak and sterile sounding by comparison, and Mr. Sanner built the original Fuzzrites in the '60's for Semi Moseley. Go figure!

I have been playing for 43 years. I play blues, jazz, flamenco, classic rock, and acid rock from the '60s.

My current gear consists of a Gibson Les Paul Deluxe, American Standard Fender Stratocaster, Epiphone Riviera, Eastwood Sidejack (Mosrite copy- great guitar), Ovation Balladeer Special, Montalvo Cypress Flamenco w/cutaway, and an Epiphone Emperor Regent. Fender Deville 410 Amp, Fender Stage 112SE (my favorite amp of ALL time), and a Vox Pathfinder. Pedals include Ashbass Fuzzbrite, Boss Fuzz (no longer used), Boss TU2 Tuner, Boss SD1Overdrive w/ TS-808 mod, DOD Icebox Stereo Chorus, Crybaby Wah, Ibanez DE-7 Echo/Delay,DOD Supra-Distortion (no longer used). SKB pedalboard, Fender Tortoise shell Medium picks.

I would buy another one immediately if this were lost or stolen. It really is the real thing. Ashley should be charging $300 for this pedal as it far exceeds any of the wanna be boutique crap out there.

If you want the REAL '60s fuzz sound- buy this pedal!

Great fuzz is hard to find. This is an excellent place to find it! Reportedly fashioned after the MOSRITE Fuzz pedal that although I have never played through, this pedal seems to meet the nasty '60s style fuzz if you want it to. Slight (very minimal) loss of signal when off. Virtually noiseless when off as well.

I play alot of different styles but bought this pedal trying to nail the '60s garage fuzz riffs set forth by many of the obsure bands of that era. I am always searching for new fuzz flavors, keeping the more "tasty" and selling off the not so good. This pedal will be a keeper! If lost or stolen, I would buy another if available.

well people it doesn't get any better than two simple knobs to dial in the desired volume and depth of fuzz tone your after. the simple set up in my opinion is the best when playing live and not to fuss around with tweaking knobs for each song. set the this groovy box and venture out in the fuzzmania!!

i have been through countless fuzz boxes and this is the fuzz unit straight from the schematics of the true mosrite fuzz. this sound is straight from the 60's nuggets we all go wow!! now that is the fuzztone i'm after. it has the perfect sting from the swarm of mosquito's buzzing out of your amp. i had to get two units for that my good musician pal loved it so much i would have never gotten mine back. it nails the correct fuzztone without farting out or falling on its face. my tone madness stops here,believe me,and it doesn't matter what your rig is. this little baby will blow your mind and speakers.

i have never had a problem with this unit. it is constructed out of the finest metal box and no cheapy components. made with the top parts and switches available on the market. it is to the exact specifications of the mosrite fuzz. whatever mosrite used, ashbass used. if ever a problem occured, mr. bass is very friendly and stands behind his work. i got to be invited to go over where he lives and try out this pedal. he lives about a hour away...lucky me! anyways, this fella showed me what was with this unit and how it is taken from the original mosrite he had to copy from and wow! i was blown away by his knowledge and honesty of a true tone master. not once did he bullshit me to sell his creation! that is where i was sold!! the man stands behind his work and follows thru with his word!

Great old 60s fuzz sound. It nails that Mosrite brittle nasally fuzz. It is a kinda high pitched when everything is cranked and for my taste I need to adjust stuff on my Bassman plus tone on geetar but otherwise love everything.

I thought it sounded great upon first use through both my handmade tube amps. It is easy to balance tones and volumes, and it lends itself to many guitars (SG Special w/p-90s, Stock '60 Jazzmaster, 74 LP Special with Fralin custom-wound HBs and Gretsch Malcolmyoung with a TV Jones Power tron. I thought immediately of bands like Davie Allan, the Ventures, the MC5, and even groups lik MonsterMagnet, Fumanchu, early Sabbath, and of course Mudhoney. Hot damn, it's a fuzz pedal, you can't go wrong...

Reliability : 9
I feel that I could depend on it quite throroughly, although, I wish that it had a clip for the battery to keep it from moving around. I side it is very simple. All of the solder joints look good and proper. If it's anywhere near as well built Fuzzrite's it'll at least last my lifetime. My only complaint is like I said, I wish that it had a battery clip, but I can get on easily enough so no big deal.

I use it with Gretsch and Danelectro guitars. Amp - Peavey Delta Blues (not the ideal combo). The effect is always strong (as long as the battery is good). Make no mistake about it - it is a FUZZ TONE! Nothing really subtle about it, though there's a wide range of fuzz. If you're looking for that vintage Davie Allan (or Cynics) sound, this is it. Great fuzz, great price. It's not noisy, it's fuzz. Haven't been able to try it with a Mosrite, but I expect that that is the ideal guitar for this unit.

This is ideal for 60s garage music, or anyone who wants to sound like it. Your classic Davie Allan, Ventures, Fuzztones, Mudhoney, et.al. sound. I've played many distortion boxes, but none like this - it's as close to vintage as you can get, without the price and unreliability. I'd definitely purchase it again. I've been playing for 25 years, in many bands with many cd's and tours. This pedal is for real.

Best Fuzz yet since the 60's Gibson Maestro.

I'd get a few more if they got lost ... recomend them to my friends too.

I love the "ripping your pants off" kind of sounds alot.

Acid rock!

I like how the depth control can really tailor your sound and bring out the dynamics.

I think its more authentic then the Boss Mega Distortion as far as fuzz.

The Boss Mega Distortion is fabulous too for different kinds of distortion.

More Marshall type sounds.

The only thing I wish it had was a snap out battery comparment cause you have to unscrew the bottom part to change the battery but I hear the adapter jack eliminates this need.

Almost attempted to paint the thing some Psych color now - Lol!

You should do that Ashley?
...

It's perfect for my needs and next gig.

Good work Ashley!

Unlike other fuzz pedals in this price range, this one features true bypass which is nice. This pedal is also very responsive to your playing style, and the controls are sensitive.
