Bad Taste Fuzz: Limited Edition Pedal

The Datsuns BAD TASTE FUZZ is now available. Our guitar player, Christian, is a wizard with electronics and has been concocting wild sounds in the lab under the moniker MAGNETIC EFFECTS.

If you missed out on the limited edition DEATH RATTLE FUZZ stomp box back in 2012, here’s your chance to remedy your sorrows or add to your collection with the BAD TASTE FUZZ. A limited edition, handmade pedal produced exclusively for The Datsuns to celebrate the release of their new album Deep Sleep.

An original design hybrid silicon, germanium and opamp fuzz, the Bad Taste Fuzz is a medium gain fuzz with a controlled low end response. The top end has a nice balance of bite and smoothness as well as a healthy dose of midrange which enables the fuzz to sit well in the mix, particularly in live situations. Controls are: Volume, Tone, Contour and Fuzz. The Tone and Contour controls are interactive which enables a wide range of sounds to be achieved.

The Bad Taste Fuzz has a high input impedance and a low output impedance which allows the pedal to play nice with buffered pedals in the signal chain. Switching is true bypass and the pedal can be powered by a standard 9V DC centre negative adapter.

The sturdy powder coated enclosure comes adorned with amazing art from french illustrator Phillipe Caza. Wow your friends, freak your folks, wig out!

Limited to 50 units ONLY. £150 (GBP) Per unit. Order here.

Thanks to everyone who came to see us these last few weeks all over New Zealand! We had an amazing time, met some old friends, made some new ones and freaked out about how nuts you guys have been! Probably our most fun NZ tour ever. It’s a bummer to leave but Japan awaits.

Next stop: TOKYO!!!
