The Retro Fuzz for the Modern Guitarist
Named after a Portuguese expression meaning “a ruckus or wild, out-of-control party”, Fuzz-Arka is a full Germanium fuzz pedal that delivers on its name. Taking cues from classics like the Tone Bender and Fuzzrite, but with some key differences when it comes to tone shaping, filtering and stability, Fuzz-Arka is still a unique beast.
Fuzz-Arka has been designed from the ground up using new-old-stock (NOS) Germanium transistors and diodes to deliver thick, red-hot bottom end, garage-y buzzsaw mids and a top end that cuts through any mix like a hot razorblade. Other quality parts like vintage Hi-Fi capacitors, Neutrik jacks and TT potentiometers finish off this one-of-a-kind fuzz.
Every pedal is handmade from selected NOS components in the heart of Milan, Italy.
