Layout by Bruce R.

Based on the ColorSound® BassFuzz™, with a tone-boost circuit based on the Stage 3 booster connected to the end of the circuit. We feel our implementation of this vintage NPN fuzz with the addition of a booster sets us apart from the rest and overcomes the chief complaint of the BassFuzz™, a low output level.

If you love Fuzz Tones on Bass, we added something special to a classic.

The Demo below uses a $169 Squire passive bass into a transistor Ampeg head.

Board Dimensions (W x H) 1.95 x 1.8 inches, i.e.: 49.5 x 45.7mm.
