The simple fuzz pedal is regarded as among the most essential guitar effects. Fuzzes have a lower clipping threshold compared to a distortion pedal, producing a nearly square wave. That explains why some fuzzes sometimes sound almost similar to a synth. The significant differentiator between fuzz sounds is found in the transistors utilized. Raunchier fuzzes such as the Big Muff utilize silicon transistors which form a more compressed tone. Vintage-voiced fuzzes like Fuzz Face leverage germanium transistors, creating a warm, mid-gain sound.
