Analog Man Astro Tone Fuzz

Analog Man Astro Tone Fuzz at The Guitar Sanctuary McKinney Texas

True Bypass switching
Super Bright LED for lower power use, buffed so as not to blind you!

High quality, hand wired RE’AN input and output jacks.
In and Out jacks on top for best pedalboard real estate management
Normal Boss style power jack, on the right side, negative ground so no polarity problems
Original 1966 Fairchild Silicon transistors, not affected by heat like a Germanium fuzz.
Sound is not as compressed as a fuzzface, not SUPER thick and saturated, something between a fuzz and distortion but closer to a fuzz.

The Analog Man ASTRO TONE fuzz is somewhere between a fuzz and distortion, it acts differently into different amps. But it sounds great into almost anything! For those who have always had trouble using Fuzzfaces live, this one is MUCH easier to use and you can hear it well with a band.

This was the first pedal that Analogmike cloned, way back in about 1994:

"The Analog Man ASTRO TONE is not quite the same as the old pedals. I took our first prototype, made to 100% original specs, to play with my power trio. At the shop we compared it to an original and the sound was exactly the same. But I did not like it, I could not hear it well with the band, it was not thick enough. The problem with the original design was that there was very little low end, the sound was quite thin. You REALLY had to crank up the volume on it to get a good sound. But this would make the ON sound too much louder than the OFF sound for live use. And the tone knob was really limited in the useful range. So we took the circuit and with some modern software analyzed it and found out how we could retain the low end, and make the tone control somewhat more useful. But we made sure that we could still get the EXACT sounds of the original pedal if that was desired. By turning the tone knob up higher, you can still get the original sounds which are good into a large, cranked amp. But we made it so that it now sounds awesome even into a little amp like a Fender Deluxe Reverb, at near unity gain on the pedal."
