Redefined vintage fuzz and versatile modern tones brought together with Waza craftsmanship.
The BOSS FZ-1W Waza Craft Fuzz guitar effects pedal delivers the inspiring tone, feel and vibe of classic fuzz in a reliable modern design. Made with signature Waza craftsmanship, the all-analog FZ-1W features premium components for reliable performance and extended range for maximum tonal versatility.
The Best Elements of Vintage Fuzz in a Modern Pedal
The FZ-1W pedal by BOSS, backed by Waza innovation, combines the best of vintage fuzz with a forward-thinking approach to effect design. Inspired by historic circuits, this pedal incorporates top-quality silicon transistors to create a unique circuit that captures the authentic tone and response of vintage fuzz while ensuring stability in any environment. Going beyond the limitations of traditional designs, the FZ-1W offers expanded sound possibilities with higher gain, lower noise, and comprehensive tone-shaping control, delivering an enhanced musical experience without compromising on performance.
Vintage Mode—Classic Fuzz, Wider Expression
BOSS has revolutionized the classic fuzz tone with the FZ-1W's Vintage mode, offering increased gain and a broader range of expressive possibilities. The fuzz sound is distinctive and bold, striking the perfect balance between aggression and smoothness, and seamlessly transitioning from heavy fuzz to crunchy tones or even crystal-clear sounds, all through the manipulation of your guitar's volume knob. The Tone knob provides simultaneous control over high and low frequencies, enabling you to achieve a diverse array of fuzz colors. Moreover, by reducing the Fuzz knob and cranking up the Level, the FZ-1W excels as a powerful boost for your amplifier and other gain pedals, further enhancing your overall sound.
Modern Mode—Fat and Focused
The Modern mode of the FZ-1W introduces a refined and adaptable fuzz voice, specifically tailored for contemporary music styles across the board. With its focused midrange and enhanced fatness, this mode caters to a wide range of genres. The gain capabilities extend even further compared to the Vintage mode, and pushing the Fuzz knob past three o'clock summons luscious and sustained tones, perfect for expressive solos. The Tone knob provides a unique tuning option that allows you to adjust the brightness while preserving the midrange, ensuring your sound maintains its cutting-edge presence. Additionally, when used as a boost, Modern mode delivers a substantial amount of thickness with a rich and characterful mid-driven quality, enhancing your overall sonic palette.
