Some. Trash.

Man, the 60's must have been a crazy time for fuzz-addicts.
Think about how insane it must have been to walk into a guitar store and the dude behind the counter hands you these boxes of scuzz to mess around with...

this disgustingly filthy mix of fuzzes from the late 60's all have very similar circuits, Check it out!

The King Has Come! rejoice and be glad.

Earlier this week friend of the blog Bart/Discofreq (of scored, what over the years has become an almost mythical pedal, the Leo Fuzz King.

This Japanese Fuzz/(Wah?), which I am going to assume is from the mid-70's, was first and up until this point only, seen on the video for Yurayura Teikoku's song "Tsumetai Gift". Which we actually posted a while back RIGHT HERE.

At this point, the Leo Fuzz King is still considered an extremely rare stomp, with now only 2 known to exist, and possibly a third that an ex-collector remembered having as part his stash...

So be on the lookout!
It's enormous, so it shouldn't be hard to spot.
Who knows, maybe you have one holding up the foundation of your house or something?


thanks for reading!

Big Elk ///

So while on vacation last week I missed out this fuzz, the Elk Big Muff Sustainar.  Which as I'm sure you have guessed, is one of many Japanese Big Muff copies from the 1970's.
These aren't quite as sweet sounding as the Big Mag's, but they get pretty damn close...

check it out///

thanks for watching!
