What We Think

The Fuzzy Drive from EWS has come out to play and it means business. First and foremost, this pedal has got some life in it. If you're looking for the low-medium level gain with a little transparency then I'm afraid you're looking in the wrong direction. However - if you're trying to quake the very foundation on which you're rockin', this is it for you. The Fuzzy Drive is capable of everything from a nice grit and boost to hell-bound ferocious distortion that sounds like a metal cage has been chewed up by a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Push the gain past 2:00 or 3:00 with the level around noon to engage a full-on rich harmonic drive making your amp scream. Whether you need a little more gain on tap or you're trying to really push the boundaries, the EWS Fuzzy Drive can take you there. 

Manufacturer's Description from EWS

From the popular brand "EWS", known for their Arion Chorus Modification, comes the new and groundbreaking fuzz/distortion effect pedal, "FUZZY DRIVE"! As you crank up the gain control of the FUZZY DRIVE, you will have powerful fuzz/distortion and with the versatile tone control, you will have wide variety of sound at your fingertip. And when you lower the gain and crank up the volume, it can also be used as fuzz/booster "a la vintage Tone Bender" to enhance your amp distortion. As always, switches are true bypass freeing you of any worries of your tone thinning out when the pedal is not engaged.

Past Fuzz unit's drawback was the considerable individual variability in sound. This was caused by the flux of quality in the "heart" of the unit, the transistor. EWS Fuzzy Drive is designed with circuit using the more stable Operational Amplifier. When evaluating the vintage fuzz sound, many people seek the value in the usage of vintage parts like Germanium transistor, but Fuzzy Drive's unique design allows you to enjoy the typical tone nuance of the vintage Fuzz even with the use of Operational Transistor. Fuzzy Drive is designed so you can dial in fuzz, overdrive and all the sound in between simply by adjusting the Gain knob.
