Hiwatt's Hand-Wired Ode to the Fuzz Face

Hiwatt has just released a limited run of a brand-new stompbox from its custom shop called the Custom Shop Filter Fuzz. This very special pedal was based off of the legendary 1960s Fuzz Face, and this first edition run is limited to just 200 units.

This vintage-inspired circuit is entirely handbuilt, with hand-wired components assembled point-to-point in Hiwatt's Doncaster, England Custom Shop. The chassis is large and vintage-inspired as well, featuring chicken-head knobs and Traffolyte-engraved faceplate.

Players get an independent switch for both the fuzz and filter, as well as a three-way filter switch and thick knob for adjusting your low-cut preference or tweaking pre-gain EQ.

To learn more or get one of the 200 units available now, head to Hiwatt's direct Reverb shop.
