The new Seymour Duncan Fooz synthesizer fuzz pedal is an analogue effect designed to complement guitars, synths and more. Delivering LFO-controlled synthy fuzz in a compact pedal format, it could be lots of fun for tweakers and good for plenty of studio tomfoolery.

The Seymour Duncan Fooz pedal is a fuzz pedal with Level and Gain controls. Judging by the videos below, its sound is between Velcro fuzz and a Big Muff. A tremolo can be added as well, so you can get some movement into your dirt tones.

The Fooz also has a filter that can be used in lowpass or bandpass modes. This is controlled by a frequency and a resonance pot. As you can see in the videos below, you can also push the played overtones individually. The frequency can then be controlled by Envelope (velocity + Envelope controller) or by LFO.

LFO

The LFO is probably what people will enjoy the most. Controls for depth, speed, wave and shape make for a lot of creative potential. The wave characteristics on offer range from sine over triangle to rectangle, and from long to choppy. The Tap-Tempo footswitch makes the whole thing suitable for live use.

And on top of the pedal, there is an expression pedal input, plus a set of DIP switches that let it access Depth, Rate, Freq or Level. This looks like a good pedal for tweakers and lovers of dabbling, I can see it being popular with many musicians that like to delve deeper into what they can do with effects.

RRP – USD 349 plus shipping/taxes
