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.

FWA10 Fuzz Elements - Water


More Info

Reproducing the sounds of the EH Big Muff has become a cottage industry within this cottage industry of effect building. Yet with dozens of circuit variations and wildly inconstant component selections, it’s virtually impossible to cite any one particular Big Muff incarnation as the most desirable version to pay homage to.

The FWA10 Water narrows the playing field by taking the authentic Ram’s Head replication of the Fuzz Elements Earth and adding a parametric EQ circuit to the mix.

Water’s powerful parametric equalizer covers a massive frequency range from a punchy 100 Hz to ear-splitting 5 kHz. Select a frequency and then boost or cut to tweak your tone with pinpoint accuracy.

By manipulating Water’s EQ, the user can dial in the entire palette of Big Muff variations, from the more mid-heavy, musical snarl of the original Triangle-Knob Muff to the harmonically-rich sustain of the Ram’s Head all the way through to the super-compressed, scooped-mid mayhem of the Green Russian Sovtek’s.

The FWA10 Water: Why settle for one Muff, when you can have them all?

Why Choose Maxon?

With its high-performance parametric EQ, the FWA10 Water can replicate virtually any Big Muff tone variant, and also create new sounds all its own.
