The TightFuzz Jr is a very flexible fuzz pedal, with a Silicon/Germanium transistor switch and Tight attack switch.
Derived from the Pro series, the Tight control and Fat switches were re-configured into a 3-position Fat/Normal/Tight switch to dial in the attack of the notes from thick and heavy to aggressive and chunky. On this model, an EQ switch provides 60’s, 70’s, or a new setting called ‘Now’, which is dialed in for more modern fuzz tones. And there’s even a Germanium/Silicon switch to change the output transistor for warmer or brighter/high gain distortion. Our popular automatically adjusting bias on the Fuzz controls keeps the sweet spot at hand, and is especially nice for cleaner tones.
All Amptweaker fuzz pedals have a built-in ‘guitar-style’ impedance, which allows you to put any other pedals in front without the traditional issues associated with vintage fuzz pedals. That means it works fine with low impedance active guitar pickups too.
Other features include true bypass switching, 9-18VDC operation, and a thumbscrew- removable bottom plate with special holes to even accommodate tie-wrap or screw-in pedalboard attachment methods.
