DH-3 DeathFuzz

DH-3 DeathFuzz


The Death Fuzz, inspired by the cult favorite FY2/Companion Fuzz by Shin-ei, is THE FUZZ WITHOUT THE BUZZ. The Death Fuzz reproduces the coveted fuzz of the FY2 but corrects its equally famous flaws. The Death Fuzz gives you a virtually silent noise floor, midrange frequency control, corrected output signal, corrected gain, radio-frequency rejection, and elimination of power-supply noise.


The Companion Fuzz (as is the case with most fuzz pedals) was known to have a loud noise-floor/lots of hiss. The DH-3 Death fuzz has a mild, hard-set noise-gate to kill the hiss and noise without affecting sound quality. The result is silence when not playing or during breaks within your riffs.


Filter Control


The original Companion Fuzz pedal had a hard-wired band-reject filter, resulting in a constant midrange scoop. The Death Fuzz features a unique filter design which changes the overall character of the sound across the whole midrange spectrum, giving you much more tone control while retaining the feel of the original.


Power Supply Filtering


Aggressive low-pass filtering of the DC power supply for maximum noise and ripple rejection. 


Redesigned Gain Circuitry


The original gain structure pitted two out-of-phase transistors against each other through a variable resistor(gain pot). This added to the low-output volume problem of the pedal and produced a limited range of function. The redesigned gain structure keeps out-of-phase signals from clashing with one another, giving you a much wider range of function, from a 'voltage starved' sound to full brutality.


Added Output Amplifier


The added output amplifier corrects the originals low output signal, with the added benefit of having a much more agreeable 10k ohm low-output impedance so it will play nicely with your other effects pedals.


Radio Frequency Rejection


2-stage RFI/EMI input filtering prevents radio frequencies from entering the circuit so you don't have any annoying radio pickup coming out of your amp.
