Maestro MFZ-1

This Moog built, Op-Amp fuzz from the mid 70's kicks some serious ass!
Used extensively on the first couple Black Keys records, it has (re)grown some popularity, but surprisingly you can still find these behemoths for a decent price. The pedal itself is HUGE, it dwarfs some of the bigger EHX effects so you know its got some girth. Sound-wise it sits somewhere between a heavy overdrive and an IC-Muff with the gain rolled back a bit.
One of these days I will do a post on mine (if I can figure out how to take it apart!).

So enjoy the sounds, this video taken from youtube'r "MrFuzzLover"///

thanks for watching!
