Video: A Brief History of The Legendary Univox Super-Fuzz

You may have seen JHS' recent Legends of Fuzz Series, for which the company took beloved circuits from yesteryear and made four different homages to the likes of '70s Tonebenders, Dallas-Arbiter Fuzz Faces, and the Univox Super-Fuzz.

Because Andy Martin had access to all of the new and original pedals for our "The JHS Legends Series vs. Its Vintage Fuzz Inspirations" shootout, we decided to take some deeper dives into the history of these famous pedals too.

In the video above, Andy takes a long look at the Unixov Super-Fuzz, looking at three different vintage versions, while shouting out some modern equivalents as well: not just JHS' new Supreme, but also the SolidGoldFX 76 Plus.
