The FZ-5 is a modern pedal built for the modern guitarist, but its sounds are pure retro. The FZ-5 re-creates vintage fuzz tones from the '60s and '70s through BOSS's state-of-the-art COSM technology. Recall the fuzz-filled flavors of classics such as the Maestro FZ-1A, Fuzz Face, and Octavia, and kick them into overdrive with the FZ-5's Boost knob. BOSS's proprietary COSM technology lets you re-create classic fuzz, while the Boost control provides a more aggressive tone. If you want to beef up your rig with classic retro fuzz artillery, then the FZ-5 is the perfect weapon.
More than 10,000,000 BOSS guitar and bass effects pedals have been sold to players worldwide, including such top players as Yngie Malmsteen, Dave Navarro, John Petrucci, Marty Friedman, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani. You've also no doubt heard BOSS pedals recorded and onstage beneath the feet of bands of all genres, including Muse, The Killers, and Silversun Pickups. The reason for the success is clear: not only do BOSS effects pedals sound great - but they're also built like tanks and designed with serious use in mind. Each BOSS pedal is housed in a stomp-ready metal box and features a rubberized stomp area and base, to help safeguard against slipping. So, whether you're a fresh-out-of-the-gate beginner, an axe-veteran designing your dream pedalboard, or anywhere in between, you can depend on BOSS's proven line of pedals to craft your tone.
