Seymour Duncan Fooz
Manufacturer's ID: 1611900-015
Fuzz, modulation and control with an all analogue signal-path, designedto synthesise the ultimate fuzz tone.
Many guitar pedals can make your guitar sound like a synth, but few capture the tactile feeling and interactivity of using one. Real analogue synths use different blocks (oscillator, filter, LFO, envelope) that work together to create unique new sounds and textures. Combining thesetools in one box and allowing them to interact with each other is thespirit of the FOOZ™.
FOOZ uses a heavily saturated square-wave fuzz to transform yourguitar into the ‘oscillator’, ready to be sculpted by other blocks—it alsomakes for a great fuzz tone by itself. The next element is the Filter whichcan be set to a Low Pass Filter (based on what you’d find in classicsynths) or a Band Pass Filter which works more like a Wah pedal.Finally, a deeply tweakable LFO and an Envelope follower provide themodulation. The LFO can be used to control the overall volume andFilter Frequency.
The Envelope can control the Filter and the LFO Depth and Rate. You can also control most of the surface controls with an external expression pedal (sold separately).
The interconnectivity between blocks allows the FOOZ to be used ina variety of manners. You can use it to replicate the sounds of a synthbut also as a straight-up fuzz, tremolo (use the LFO to modulate thevolume), auto-wah (use the Envelope to modulate the Filter), fuzz-wah(expression pedal assigned to control the BPF), rhythmic filter (LFOassigned to Filter Frequency), or a “cocked” wah (no modulation, BPFset to desired frequency).
We call it an Analogue Fuzz Synthesiser. Inspired by iconic guitar tones and synth flexibility, FOOZ brings the spirit of synth creativity to guitar.
