This pedal covers so much ground, whilst feeling like familiar Territory it kinda fills the gap between Zonk - Tonebender - Fuzzface. It can Spit , it can sustain and it provides SOOOOOOO much texture and really reacts beautifully to your picking dynamic and volume pot adjustments.
Heres a little backstory on the Original .
The 1960's original, the Baldwin Burns Buzzaround, is among the most sought after and insanely rare fuzz pedals of this planet. Between 1965 and 1968 the merged UK subsidiary of Baldwin Piano & Organ Company and Burns London, called Baldwin Burns Ltd, produced a small number of guitar effects pedals. One of these was a fuzz pedal called the Buzzaround. Gary Hurst reportedly designed this pedal around 1966/67 (unconfirmed and probably hearsay) and the circuit is extremely close to the 3-knob Tone Bender circuit. Those with a flair for the conspiracy theory suggest that, with very good reason, the Sola Sound Tone Bender MKIII is basically the Buzzaround circuit with the addition of a tone control. The Buzzaround pedal contains three knobs, being Sustain, Balance (this is basically a bias control for Q3) and Timbre (a volume/tone control, which is never fully off).
In a Nutshell , if you like WALLS of tone with infinite sustain or either Gated Spitting textures this pedal is a must and if your a Zonk lover you really have to try this circuit out .
Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate your time ⭕️
