Happy New Year from Fat Tone Guitars

We had a great year at Fat Tone Guitars. What can be better than playing guitars and amps and effect pedals all day long?

I’ve also had a blast talking with customers and learning what makes their tone wheels turn.  Without a doubt, the sound of the year can be summed up in one word

Fuzz.

That cool onomatopoetic word that conjures up images of soft, fluffy teddy bears and cotton balls.  Fuzz also represents all that is big and loud and thick when a fuzz sound is emanating from an electric guitar.  Fat Tone Guitars carries  at present time, 56 varieties of fuzz pedal.  Makes you think of ketchup.  But seriously, these fuzz pedals deliver the goods for guitar players of all shapes and sizes.  A good fuzz pedal can make your lead guitar sustain for days and sound almost like a violin.

A good fuzz pedal can make your power chord crash and roar like a herd of buffalo.

A good fuzz pedal can add sputter and crackle and disguise your guitar sound almost to the point  where it doesn’t sound like a guitar at all.

And while not for everybody, a good fuzz pedal is musical and in the hands of a competent guitar player (not me), adds layer and volume and gobs of tone.

Great fuzz pedals this past year were made by:

  • MJM Guitar FX
  • Earthquaker Devices
