Fuzz Elements Series Effects Pedals

The sounds of Fuzz have left an indelible mark on the history of rock guitar. Yet despite its undeniable influence, the definition of what constitutes a “great” Fuzz tone has remained strongly subjective and almost eternally elusive - Until now.

Introducing the Maxon Fuzz Elements – seven models designed to reproduce the classic and unique sounds of the World’s most desirable vintage Fuzz pedals.

Using modern software technology, Maxon has modeled and mapped the complex elements that make up the core sounds of these legendary pedals, reproducing them using advanced analog circuitry that is as accurate as it is stable.

FW10 Fuzz Elements - Wind


More Info

The original Sola Sound Tonebender was used by some the greatest guitar players of the 60s and 70s.

Manufactured under a myriad of brands, this circuit can be found in the Vox Tonebender Professional MKII, Marshall Supa Fuzz, RotoSound Fuzz Box and the rare Rangemaster Fuzzbug. Yet whatever the name, everyone can agree on one thing – this was the guitar sound of early classic rock.

Perfect for replicating the timeless tones of Beck, Page, & Clapton, the FW10 Fuzz Elements Wind captures all the magic of the original Mk II Tonebender and adds a little modern mojo of its own.

Wind offers an edgy, aggressive tone with plenty of midrange sizzle, yet it cleans up beautifully with your volume knob and offers excellent note definition even with complex chords.

Maxon also added two tweaks to this classic circuit to make it more versatile. First; a Vintage/Hot switch that selects between the Gain level of the original and a higher Gain setting. Vintage serves up 100% Tonebender, while Hot offers more sustain for solos or to drive you amp over the edge.

Wind also features a selectable input buffer that works to provide a more accurate, uncolored recreation of the guitar input signal. In short: It’s your sound, just dirtier.

If you’re looking to worship at the altar of rock’s holy trinity, Fuzz Elements Wind will be your guide.

Why Choose Maxon?

Fuzz Elements Wind accurately recreates the sounds of the legendary Vox Tonebender Mk II, and also adds several new features that offer more versatile performance in a compact, affordable package.
