Mad Professor Amplification has unveiled the FUZZ32 pedal, a new limited-edition, hand-wired germanium fuzz pedal “without the shortcomings."

According to Mad Professor, this means offering a stable fuzz circuit that “is not as delicate to temperature” as vintage fuzz faces, and at a more affordable price point.

The new pedal sports volume, tone and fuzz knobs, as well as a boost toggle.

Mad Professor also added output in order to “reach the unity gain and boost too, even with the mildest amounts of fuzz.”

The FUZZ32 is being offered in a very limited quantity of 96 pedals (32 each in blue, red and turquoise). Blue is available now for €290 (approx. $320).
