Fulltone’s 70-BC returns in an OCD-sized enclosure!
Thanks to a recent find of a couple thousand excellent BC108C transistors, Fulltone is happy to announce the return of the 70 Fuzz pedal, this time in a small (OCD-sized) housing. These transistors sound outrageous, and the resulting 70-BC Fuzz pedal still has the secret-weapon “Mid” knob which will allow you to do something other Fuzzfaces won’t let you do—be heard in the mix!
Ever played that legendary original fuzz from around 1970? If so, you know it’s not the same sound as ones with the same namesake being mass-produced currently. The Fulltone 70-BC has two intentionally mismatched (for harmonic content) silicon transistors that snarl and spit—not for the meek! If you put the “Fuzz” on 10 you will rip, and you might get all sorts of oscillation and weirdness, but that’s what rock is about, right? Don’t try using it with a wah wah—you can’t, and neither could Jimi, without it screaming and howling. You want polite and quiet? Sorry, you’ll have to go elsewhere. You want art in a box? Come on in!
Housed in a 16-gauge steel box and powdercoated Deep Blue, the 70-BC pedal is a bit unruly but with some warmth, ideal for older, four-input Marshall amps, it has much more fuzz than the ’69 Pedal and includes a Mid control for extra clarity and cut.
