TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Pedal
TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz Product Overview by GAK
Inspired by the iconic Fuzz Face circuits, the silicon-based TC Electronic Rusty Fuzz pedal delivers the old-school tones of the late 60s known for its dynamic character and smooth gain structure.
Rusty Fuzz gives you control of volume, tone and amount of fuzz you want and takes you on a trip through a tonal time machine as you can dart from Hendrix-esque ripping velcro-fuzz to soaring David Gilmour-like solo sustain with ease. You can also take a more modern route and experience the fiery fuzz tones of Queens Of The Stone Age - there's really no limits to this pedal!
Not only does this pedal sport a compact and roadworthy design, it also features top mounted I/O jacks to maximise pedalboard space and True Bypass to ensure zero tonal coloration when turned off - truly a pedal fit for any board!

You won’t find a better fuzz for this price. Simple controls allow you to dial in your tone, and the build quality is fantastic. Perfect for that vintage low fi fuzz tone for heavy rock and lead work. Might not be extreme enough for some fuzz enthusiasts.
Amazing quality for such a price
Nice buzz, can't beat it for the price. Well made & designed. Can get quite a few different tones out of it. I'd recommend putting it somewhere near the start of your chain, it can have a habit of dropping the overall volume when engaged if you're using it with other pedals, especially distortions/overdrives. Goes nicely with the 'forcefield compressor' in the same TC range tho to keep the levels nice and even! But overall a great purchase, if on a budget for a fuzz, this is well worth the money. Bit more cash to spare and I'd pick a EX 'Big Muff' but they are way more expensive than this!
