From Great Eastern FX:
If you’ve ever wanted to fall in love with fuzz but find this type of pedal hard to use in practice, then the Focus Fuzz Silicon is for you!
Extremely player-friendly and easy to dial in, the Focus Fuzz Silicon won’t leave you struggling to find a sound you’re happy with.
This original circuit design, built around specially selected low-gain silicon transistors, serves up a slew of inspiring and exhilarating tones, effortlessly covering everything from crunchy drive to full-on fuzz.
A touch darker and grittier in tone, with a slightly wider range of gain, the Focus Fuzz Silicon retains all the facets that made its predecessor so desirable.
Where many fuzz pedals really only sound good with the gain maxed out, or demand you set your amp just so, the Focus Fuzz Silicon is different. This is a fuzz that will sound great at a range of different gain settings, through clean and dirty amps, with single-coils or humbuckers.
The pedal’s real secret weapon is the FOCUS knob, which progressively adds more gain, bite and aggression to push the guitar firmly to the front of the mix. This intuitive control lets you quickly find your ideal tone, whether that’s smooth sustain or face-melting fuzz.
The original, limited-edition Focus Fuzz was a hybrid design, using two metal-can silicon transistors and one NOS germanium transistor.
The Focus Fuzz Silicon replaces this germanium transistor with a specially selected low-gain silicon transistor. This, coupled with various other tweaks to the circuit, has allowed it to stay remarkably close to the sought-after sound of the original.
