Engl continues to supplement its line of amplifiers with stompboxes that offer players versatility in sound. The Fuzzyhead Custom Pedal is the latest addition to the lineup, and it has a lot of bite to it for sure.

This ferocious little stompbox has the traditional gain and volume controls found in most fuzz pedals, but it is the frequency controls that most impress. Both the LO FREQ and HI FREQ controls have a range of 7.5 dB to + 7.5 dB offering an array of tones that make the Fuzzyhead extremely versatile.

The active EQ controls cut and boost frequencies to suit many situations: for solos, the “Hi Freq” knob provides a vibrant high-frequency sound; for players looking for a warm touch or a deeper tone, a low-frequency boost is available. Engl continues to keep things straightforward without losing their knack for surprises. Listen to the growling fuzz produced by the pedal in the video below.

We are proud to offer up a versatile, high quality solution for any live and studio situation.
With this pedal you get pure analog uncompromising fuzz tones. Not least due to the
special selection of the components, the sound quality of this device is at a particularly high level.

The electronics assembly is protected by a high durable housing to offer you a pedal
