NuFuzz designer Ed Sanner (of Fuzzrite design fame) was working on the new pedal as Mosrite filed for bankruptcy in 1969. Out of the bankruptcy sprang Sierra Electronics, a new partnership that would release the NuFuzz, which was basically a Fuzzrite with a tone control. Sierra was forced to change its name due after a complaint from another entity called Sierra Electronics. The new name was formed via a simple combination of the names of owners Morris Rosenberg and Ben Sacco— Rosac. A vintage NuFuzz won’t break the bank (there is also a new version designed by Sanner himself under Hallmark Guitars), but if you’re interested in a more modern take on the pedal, you might want to check out the EarthQuaker Devices Spires pedal. – Read the full article on Gearphoria.

Here are a few videos of the Nu Fuzz old and new.
