Yesterday I posted a video about Adrian Belew’s rig/equipment, and one of the pedals he uses is the Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz, so I wanted to take a closer look today. Basically, we have a fuzz pedal with a graphic equalizer built right in. This is great to get heavy scooped tones… or give yourself a mid bump for leads, etc. The graphic EQ is nice to really find the frequency you’re looking for. You can also disengage the distortion and use it as a straight equalizer. Additionally there is a envelope response which adjusts and responds to your pick attack.
Here is the official description of the pedal:
For the true tonal alchemist, the Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz XO is a unique distortion pedal with 6-band EQ, sensitive to the dynamics of your playing. Sliders for Overdrive, Sustain, and Volume further its array of tones. Use the Graphic Fuzz guitar pedal solely as an EQ or switch on the distortion for total sound sculpting.
I found a great video with Peter Stroud by EHX:
