The Filter Fuzz

Based on the '60s Fuzz Face, the Hiwatt Custom Shop Filter Fuzz hot-rods the legendary effect. With more gain and a unique approach to tone-shaping, the Filter Fuzz brings versatility and new tonal colors to a familiar foundation. The thick purr is there when you want it, but at the tap of a switch you can cut the lows, push mids or highs, and get into gated, octave howls. All handbuilt in the Hiwatt Custom Shop.
