Fuzz Phrase


Vintage-sounding germanium Fuzz pedal, a legendary sound that helped shape a generation !

There are many variables that determine the quality, sound and “clean-ability” of a Germanium Fuzz pedal. We feel transistor choice is crucial, therefore we tracked down and managed to stock a limited supply of the best – and extremely rare – germanium transistors ever made : the CV7003, military-spec OC44 germanium transistors.

So here’s a DISCLAIMER!: the Fuzz Phrase as is, will be available for as long as our limited CV7003 supply lasts!

The few and far between CV7003, is extremely consistent as well as heat-resistant, much more than the AC128 and NKT275 transistors are, making our Fuzz Phrase stand out from its competition. It’s consistency is also the reason why there is no need for an external bias pot. You are likely never to have to adjust the bias on your pedal !

Each individual transistor is measured for gain and leakage and then hand picked and matched through sound audition.

Along with the use of carbon comp resistors, the result is pure vintage fuzz goodness  !

Just mess around with the guitar volume to find the sweet spots, from clean, to rude, to devastating!

Technical Info

  • True-Bypass
  • Controls : Level
  • Works with a 9V battery or a 9V DC adaptor (tip-negative)
  • Powering the Fuzz Phrase :
  • – Using a battery (recommended): It is best to use a carbon zinc 9v battery (not alkaline or lithium) as it looses its power gradually making the pedal sound warmer and fuzzier ! If you want to have your pedal mounted on a pedal board and keep it plugged in at all times without draining the battery’s life, you can use the small DC plug provided on the power jack, every time you’re not playing.
  • – 9v Boss-type power supply (tip negative): *Caution : this circuit uses positive ground. Therefore you cannot connect this pedal to any type of chained power supply linked with other common DC-powered pedals, unless the power supply unit features separate isolated DC outputs, into which you can plug the Rooster
  • – The 3rd option is to use a 9v chained power supply (eg 1spot), but you will need the “Diago” isolator adaptor.
  • Uses only 3mA of power when ON and barely any power when off (under 0.2mA!) so the battery will last hundreds of hours !
  • If you choose to connect another non-true-bypass pedal before the Fuzz Phrase, in your pedal chain, our opinion is the pedal will not reach its maximum tonal capacity. You can check this out, hear the difference, and decide for yourself.
  • Dimensions : 111 x 68 x 47 mm
  • Weight : 0,25 kg  /  0,55 lb
