If you’re looking for a simple, straightforward fuzz pedal, then the Unpleasant Surprise will surely live up to its name. For those who want to dabble in mad fuzz science, however, this unique fuzz pedal from Fairfield Circuitry is anything but unpleasant. A pair of Volume and Onset knobs plus a trio of switches controlling treble cut, amplifier bias, and compression let you dish out some of the weirdest and most unique fuzz tones ever conjured up by man. The Unpleasant Surprise is not subtle, not average, and definitely not for the faint of heart.

Fairfield Circuitry Unpleasant Surprise Fuzz Reminisce about the time you got your shoulder caught in the reciprocating saw while this unit destroys your slick jazz lines.

The fruit of an oddball circuit, hanging there awkwardly by some parasitic effect. Tweaked, bended and shoe-horned to optimize it’s stench, it’s unpleasance. Time has come to turn all dynamics to shit. Strangely, it feels very natural. Fairfield Circuitry Unpleasant Surprise Fuzz Features: Tweaked, bended and shoe-horned to optimize it’s stench, it’s unpleasance.

    Wonderfully weird fuzz pedal. Contrary to its name, The Unpleasant Surprise is a pleasant surprise. It’s a whole lot more versatile than I thought. I love using it for nailing that 60s to 70s acid rock dying-battery sputtery fuzz.
