BJF Candy Apple Fuzz is one of our favorite fuzzes. Its basic charachter is nasty and rough, like a fuzz should be. Behind the Nature control you will find a myriad of different sounds, including octave fuzz and gated fuzz sounds.
Björn describes the Candy Apple Fuzz 2021:"This is the latest development finding a balance between the tradeoff in the CAF design between gating and ”perfect” octave and in accordance with feedback given by two Finnish guitarists to give smooth gating at will, and near perfect octave throughout fretboard aswell as more behaved ”standard” fuzz."
Vol: Sets output volume level.
Fuzz: Sets the amount of fuzz and saturation. In this Special version the control range is wider than in the regular version.
Nature: Controls the character of the pedal. At 12 o'clock you will get octave fuzz sounds. More traditional fuzz sounds can be found at about 10 o'clock. At 7 and 5 o'clock the gated fuzz sounds appear. Note: this control scratches as it is turned. Björn says: "It carries DC and scratch comes from transistors settling to new working point.".
