The Fender Hammertone Fuzz is one of the nine new stompboxes in an affordable line of pedals released by the guitar conglomerate in 2022.
This silicon circuit doesn’t seem to be a clone of any of the classic vintage fuzzes, but vintage it sounds, with its classic splattery tone and horn-like sustain.
The three knobs for Fuzz, Tone and Level cover a lot of sonic ground, while the Octave switch takes it into Super Fuzz/Octavia territory.
An internal trim-pot allows you to dial down super-high frequencies to tame single-coil pickups and bright amps or simply shape your tone further.
Fender Hammertone Fuzz, Builder’s Notes
The Hammertone™ Fuzz captures the iconic splat, saturation and horn-like sustain used on the formative records of rock’n’roll history.
Despite its small size, this purple-tinged, psychedelic stompbox is feature-packed with three classic controls, two silicon diodes and an octave fuzz mode – allowing you to recreate the legendary sounds of the ‘60s & ‘70s or forge your own unique tone.
60S STYLE SILICON FUZZ
Inspired by vintage fuzz units of the psychedelic sixties, the Hammertone™ Fuzz features classic tones with less noise and more volume on tap.
The Octave switch engages an additional octave-up fuzz circuit with more volume, more treble and an electrified, textural decay perfect for leads or hair-raising riffs.
INTERNAL TONE CONTROL
The internal trim-pot control allows you to dial down super-high frequencies to tame single-coil pickups and bright amps or simply shape your tone further.
