Fuzzdog Pedals

From Thermionic Studios
Jump to: navigation, search


Updated 31-Oct-2022

Please note for the kits and PCBs that they are selling, Fuzzdog now includes the names of the original pedals. The term they use is "Inspired By".

Please also be informed that with Fuzzdog now calling out the pedals being cloned or "inspired by", we will no longer be actively updating this list. If you'd like to submit updates, we'll be happy to accept and update accordingly, but doing so will not be a priority. Thank you.

We have no idea if Fuzzdog found this list and used it to fill in the information for most of their pages, or simply used it as an impetus to fill in the corresponding information. Most likely, they're oblivious to this page and did it on their own. A quick spot-check on our part using a random sample of different pedals on their site seems to match up, so... In either case we'll accept their updated practice as flattery.

There's one nice outcome from this, and that's that Fuzzdog has filled in any remaining holes. We've updated accordingly. Every entry should have a corresponding match.

The pedals in the lists below that are linked are pedals that we've purchased and are or will be making available.

General Info

Here are pedal kits that are/were offered by Fuzzdog in the UK. We take no position on the kits and PCBs that Fuzz Dog makes available. We have purchased a number of PCBs from Fuzzdog in order to ensure that we have certain vintage-style pedals (meaning the guts are the same, or work-alike) available for rental. We do not believe in undercutting existing pedal manufacturers who offer original pedals at reasonable prices. Fuzzdog offers many such pedals in order for people to get a "more affordable" version of a pedal that's currently being offered for sale. Barring a few special exceptions, we will neither build, nor rent such pedals despite the fact we've accidentally purchased a couple of such pedals or PCBs.

If you want a pedal that makes a certain sound and that pedal is still in production by the original manufacturer, we advise you purchase that pedal, or rent ours. While it may seem cheaper to build the pedal yourself, please be reminded that this does not include the price of the soldering station, the necessary testing tools (to consistently build working pedals), or the other incidentals that you have to get in order to do the actual work to assemble a pedal (Drill motor or Drill Press, Bits, parts cabinets, etc...).

Now, there are certain pedal manufacturers that charge exorbitant prices for pedals that have very little, in terms of components. To these manufacturers, more often than not their cost is maybe $25.00 worth of parts. It is often also the case that such pedals come from electronic schematics that were worked out long ago by someone else. We have little sympathy for such pedal manufacturers when people make clones of their pedals because these manufacturers are charging exorbitant prices for circuits that they themselves have copied. We believe it to be perfectly ethical to clone and make available such pedals when those certain manufacturers are demonstrably preying on customers' lack of information, and are in effect, building, selling, and misrepresenting these clones as original work they did themselves.

Despite our moralizing and finger-wagging, if there are vintage pedals that you're looking to get and those pedals are either not available or perhaps they're only available because they are rare and expensive, but are no longer being made, we think it's entirely reasonable to not want to spend stupid amounts of money for something that only might, from an audio standpoint, give you the sound that you want. Vintage pedals continue to die as components age out or burn up, and as people who own these things die, and as the curators of various estates, not knowing the utility and value, inadvertently pitch these treasures into the trash.

In addition to vintage pedals, there are other cases wherein a pedal may have been made with a very small run and limited distribution (like the Kendrick Amplifiers "Buffalo Pfuz"). There are other cases where a certain model of pedal was made in a small batch for a particular artist (like the "Brian May Treble Boost"). In these cases as well, we endorse the re-creation of such pedals and/or effects that have been effectively abandoned by the original manufacturer.

In any event, there are a number of pedals that are interesting that are no longer available from the manufacturer that originally developed them. In these cases, you would be well advised to either borrow or rent someone else's pedal, or, if you wanted to make a bigger investment, build your own.

And no, despite the fact that here at Thermionic Studios, we have built and continue to build pedals for the purpose of renting them out, we are not a "for-hire" pedal assembly shop. Of course, everything is negotiable, but we think you'd likely decide that the price we'd charge for building your pedal in a timely manner isn't worth your money.


This is a list that was pulled originally from a British site with a discussion thread called The Fretboard: Poodle Pedal Parts Emporium Decoded. This list also contains our most recent review of the site and the "clone" pedals that Fuzzdog offers (As of 15-Sep-2020). In having added to this list we've at least doubled it. The exciting part is that this means that since May 2014, Fuzzdog has practically doubled the inventory of offerings available to build pedals. Whether or not these PCBs are still available...? You'll have to check with Fuzzdog...

We are recreating and providing the list here (and occasionally updating it) for no other use than for us here at Thermionic Studios to reference. It may also serve to help provide guidance if someone is looking to recreate a vintage pedal that's no longer in production and might find here the means for doing so. And no, our pedals aren't for sale, only rental.

While we've done our best to be as thorough as possible, you'll see in the lists below that there are cases where there is no corresponding original pedal name. In those cases where there is not a match, it means that:

  • None was provided by from the original discussion thread, or,
  • New pedal kits have been created and offered by Fuzzdog since the original posting, or,
  • There are no hints from the text at the Fuzzdog website helping anyone clue into which pedal is being cloned, or,
  • Despite our attempts (or the attempts of additional contributors) to determine which is the original pedal, we have not been able find a match, or,
  • It may be a Fuzzdog original and therefore has no "match".

If you're aware of a match that we don't have listed, please contact us and let us know, we'll be happy to give you credit!


Certain letter groupings below have an additional column, "Discontinued?". This is to call out pedal kits or pcbs that were at one time manufactured by Fuzzdog, but no longer appear to be available.

That is all. Cheers.

Mark Dancer explains (email to Thermionic Studios dated 07-Apr-2021)!

I know this one seems a bit strange, saying that a Fuzz Dog pedal that is marketed as a tremolo is a clone of a pedal that is marketed as a vibrato, but

  1. the Magnavibe has a range of settings where it sounds more like a wobbly tremolo than a vibrato; and
  2. the Magnatone amps had a "tremolo" circuit that modulated the pitch rather than the volume (i.e., it was a vibrato).

Thanks Mark!

The Fuzzdog "Fuzzpups" are simply very narrow PCBs that have been designed to fit inside of a Hammond 1590G style enclosure. These enclosures are so narrow that the input and output jacks have to be offset from one another lest the tips of the RST (Ring-Sleeve-Tip) jacks collide. They've been designed to be this narrow so many many pedals can be arranged one right next to another for maximimizing the use of space that is otherwise limited by the physical dimensions of a musician's pedalboard.

Fuzzdog has made a few different line/pedal buffers available in case there is a need for clarity or to boost what would otherwise be a loss of high-end with the desire to use a lot of true-bypass pedals. While it's "true bypass" by itself can be fine and acceptable when there are one or two pedals in an instrument chain and as long as the cord length to the amp is short. As instrument chain lengths get longer and as the number of pedals in the chain increase, the need for a buffer or two also increases.

Buffer Kits

Group # Fuzz Dog Clone Name Function
1 Cream Buffer Pete Cornish "Line Driver" buffer, Transistor-based
2 Klon Buffer Buffer designed for the Klon pedal. OpAmp-based
3 Phase Inverting Buffer Buffer with switch-enabled phase-inversion. OpAmp-based
4 Tigger Buffer DGN Custom Guitars Unity Gain Buffer, OpAmp-based
