Inspired by the recent reissue of its classic OD850 fuzz pedal, Ibanez is releasing a new mini version—the FZMINI. From the company:

Designed to capture the spirit of the full, fat fuzz tones that dominated the soundtrack of the Seventies, the compact FZMINI recreates the classic fuzz sound with a sweet, organic tone that almost feels three-dimensional. Players will appreciate its extremely musical effect as well as its small footprint.

Features include:

  • Made in Japan
  • 100 percent analog circuitry—for a warm organic tone
  • True Bypass Switching—to prevent signal loss
  • Controls for sustain, tone and level—for creative flexibility.

Ibanez has a long history of making excellent guitar effects—most notably the TS808 Tube Screamer. The company's pedals continue to attract a loyal following worldwide for their durability, musicality and unique tones.

Size: 2.004”W x 3.646”L x 2.169”H
List: $128.55
