UK based Expresso FX make fine old-school fuzz and boost pedals. This one, their Fuzz Bender, is equipped with OC75 and OC76 NOS transistors that make it sing and wail. Great fun. I’ve paired our hero up with my excellent “Diablo” Partscaster that Mark Emanuelli strapped together for me (Mark wound the pickups too), and my favourite JTM45 model in the Axe. The backing track, “NIght Train” is courtesy JTC Guitar.
Please excuse the odd letterboxing in the vid, it was originally rendered to 16:9 for Instagram. Rock on and check out Expresso FX. More from them soon.
