This morning I received an email from Kirk letting me know about a deal that EffectsBay readers might be interested in! First off, Kirk.. thank you! The deal is a Musician’s Friend Stupid Deal of the Day and it’s for the ModTone MT-BB Buzz Boy Power Fuzz.
Interesting controls on the MT-BB – Fizz, Fuzz and Fluff! Sometimes non-traditional labels for control helps with removing preconceived ideas on how the pedal works (but I would assume we’re still dealing with level, gain and tone at the end of the day with a fuzz pedal).
Here is the official description of the ModTone MT-BB Buzz Boy Power Fuzz:
The Buzz Boy Power Fuzz makes no secret that it can get downright obnoxious (if thats what you’re into!) but can also yield plenty of warm, rich tones too. By slowly moving the knobs as you play you’ll begin to see that even the slightest movement can give you tones you weren’t expecting. Best of all, every one is unique, original, and completely useable!
I found this demo video by THE MUSICIAN NETWORK (TMNtv). It definitely shows a wide variety of tones from ear bleed, to warm and wooly.
The ModTone MT-BB Buzz Boy Power Fuzz lists for $120 and is usually available for $100, but is currently on sale for the stupid price of $39.95 at Musician’s Friend! That’s 60% off regular price. Not bad! Not bad at all! This is a great opportunity to pick up a versatile fuzz on the cheap!

I have one. I think it may be named after Buzz Osborne from (the) Melvins, because it's really easy to dial in King Buzzo-ish tones on this one. One of my favorite dirt boxes.Reply
