Fuzzlord Effects FET120

The FET120 overdrive is one of the most popular pedals of Fuzzlord Effects, a company laser-focused on creating pedals for Doom and Stoner Metal players.

As hinted in the name, this is a pedal that reproduces, using FET technology, the classic tone of vintage 120 Watt amps of the ’70s like the Orange OR 120 or the Mad Amps GT 120. Optimized to shine on tuned-down guitar and bass, thanks to its huge amount of output, the FET120 can deliver anything from a clean boost all the way up to aggressive fuzz tones.

However, it mostly shines as a flexible overdrive, also thanks to the active Baxandall Bass/Treble controls that can deliver 20dB of cut or boost.

Vintage amp overdrive tones based off of the classic 70s OR series amplifiers. This pedal utilizes FET based op amps to emulate the sound of the famous tube preamps in a compact pedalboard format. Voiced to work well for down-tuned guitars and bass covering clean boosted tones as well as huge saturated fuzz tones.

The FET120 can be used as an overdrive pedal to drive your amp and other pedals, or you can run it as a preamp style pedal into the FX return of an amplifier to get your amp voiced for doom. Between the powerful Active Baxandal tone stack and the wide gain range the FET120 is a versatile tool on any pedalboard.

The Bass/Treble tone stack gives you complete control over your sound. The Active Baxandall stack can boost/cut 20dB and are very powerful for guitar or bass players when dialing in their live sound. Tons of output volume available to boost the front end of your amplifier or your amps FX return to make the FET120 take the place of your amplifers preamp section.
