Description

The Salvage fuzz is the result of opportunistic thinking from Michael Varela of Tonetuga FX.  Here is Michael Varela’s story behind the Salvage fuzz.

It’s June of 2020. Component supply has screeched to a halt.  The components that I did manage to get my hands on were all sub par quality from dubious suppliers or dead on arrival from sloppy rushed production.  I can’t use any of this!  I still want to work on new designs, but the only components I have on hand are from other prototypes and old breadboards.

I decided to challenge myself to make something cool using only the salvaged scraps and parts I had on hand.  So, I plotted out a basic outline for a pedal and tried to make something beautiful.

The Salvage fuzz is an interesting departure from a typical fuzz.  With Fuzz set to 0 you still get a pleasant and well defined distortion as your core tone.  Turning up the Fuzz control will slowly blend an extra layer of fuzz saturation into the base distortion.  At the maximum Fuzz setting, the Salvage Fuzz will turn into a full blown filthy fuzz with traces of your original signal underneath the chaos.

The EQ offers versatility beyond from typical Fuzz pedals.  With the High control set from 8 to 10 Prog Rock-esque “Pushed Cleans” are achieved.  From 1 to 3 on the Low control you will find no shortage of amp shaking bass content.

I encourage everyone to experiment, in depth, with the EQ. This pedal has A LOT to offer!

Semi clean clarity, filthy Texas blues, and experimental dirt are all achievable within the Salvage Fuzz.
