About This Listing

Perfect condition apart from a few paint chips typical of the brand
This is an excellent fuzz with large reserve of gain

It is a Germanium hybrid…it uses a regular 9V input…it’s almost impervious to where it is in the signal chain, so it will go places and do things most other Germ-based fuzzes just can’t because of their design. Vintage, crazy, ripping Germ fuzz with the convenience of LED/9V and unrestricted placement…that’s the Candy Apple Fuzz!

(Turning the N knob re-biases the transistors and causes scratchy noises. This is normal…Dont’t Panic!)

The Candy Apple Fuzz is about as versatile a germanium hybrid fuzz as I can imagine. It has huge amounts of gnarly, raspy chainsaw fuzz available but, thanks to the range of the Fuzz and Nature knobs and the new Treble control, it comes all the way down to a tasty, dynamic, edge of dirt fuzz.

It also has the best Octave I’ve heard of any fuzz…it literally tracks the entire neck from a dropped D – D all the way up and off the end of the fretboard. That magic spot lies somewhere between 11 and 1 o’clock on the Nature knob. You can also find the Octave, turn the fuzz down, and get an almost clean Octave to punch into your favorite dirt pedal for a unique solo sound.

The Candy Apple Fuzz is one of Bjorn’s first BJFe circuits (along with the BBOD and DRD). It was made to cover the nastier side of vintage fuzzes and it does that and more. Over the years, the one recurring request was to make it a bit smoother and more musically manageable. When it came time for the BearFoot version, he did just that by adding a Treble control to reign in the rasp as needed, and he also adjusted the circuit to germanium transistors, which are smoother and more musical to most ears. BUT silicon has its own musicality and many just like the full on unruliness and extra rip of silicon, so now you have a choice!   Gold = Germanium Silver = Silicon
