What we say:

BOSS’s colourful stomp boxes are the most recognisable pedal range in existence. For over 40 years, guitarists from bedrooms to stadiums have put their boot down on a BOSS effect to transform their sound. Several models have passed into guitar legend and early examples can fetch extremely high prices. Happily, BOSS have maintained their stellar reputation for world-class effects in bomb-proof casing with their current range and have fended off the imitators for decades to remain the pre-eminent single pedal effects manufacturer in the business. If there’s an effect for guitar (or bass, vocals, keys…be creative!) then you can bet BOSS have a pedal of it in their range or even invented it outright! Every guitar player should get to experience the joy of selecting a pedal from BOSS’s exhaustive roster, plugging it in and unleashing their wildest sonic dreams.

The mottled silver industrial look of the FZ-5 should give you a good indication of what to expect sonically: lacerating, buzzsaw filth with outrageous overtones! It has three distinct modes and each one is a beast!

The three modes are each modelled on a classic Fuzz effect form the golden age of psychedelia: the Maestro FZ-1A Fuzz Tone, the Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face and the Roger Mayer Octavia. In addition to this, Boss have included a boost circuit to really ram the gain up high into extreme overload! It's an enormously fun pedal to unleash at an unsuspecting audience, especially the Octavia setting with the boost all the way up: the overtones coming out of this pedal absolutely scream! It's quite an 'experience'! Switch the mode across to the Maestro mode and you'll find lots there to your 'satisfaction'! The third mode, given a little 'time', will send you to the dark side of the moon and back!

Specification

The FZ-5 is a modern pedal built for the modern guitarist, but the sounds you can get from the FZ-5 are pure retro. Looking back at the glorious rock sounds of the ’60s and ’70s, the FZ-5 recreates its vintage fuzz through BOSS state-of-the-art COSM® technology. Recall the fuzz-filled flavors of classic pedals, such as the Maestro FZ-1A, Fuzz Face and Octavia pedals, and kick ’em into overdrive with the FZ-5’s Boost knob. BOSS’ proprietary COSM® technology allows guitar players to recreate classic fuzz BOOST control for more aggressive tone. The FZ-5 is the perfect weapon for players wanting to beef up their rigs with classic retro fuzz artillery.
  • Vintage sounds inspired by famous fuzz pedals of the ’60s and ’70s
