A look at an old friend given to me by another old friend. The 8Tr Fuzz Wah was built and sold under quite a few brand names; this one is a "Kimbara". The Fuzz Wah has been used by 70s kids and shoegazers alike (I've been the former but I'm not much chop at the latter) and they're a lot of fun. So, here's a trip down memory lane with a classic effect that at least one Youtuber has called 'the most evil fuzz of all time'. Is it?
