The superior Superfuzz clone

The Reuss SF-02 Goo Goo Fuzz is a clone of the legendary 1960s Shin-Ei / Univox FY6 Superfuzz pedal. Built to the original schematic and featuring rare vintage new old stock semiconductor parts

Like the original Superfuzz, the Reuss SF-02 Goo Goo Fuzz offers a wild and crazy, and totally over-the-top, wall of fuzz with an octave-up and slight ring-modulating effect. A breathtakingly complex and frighteningly beautiful, almost overwhelming noise. Unique and addictive. A fuzz sound like nothing else out there.

It's the tone made famous by Pete Townsend of The Who, Mudhoney, The Jesus & Mary Chain - and not least The Cramps.

The germanium diodes in the SF-02 are ultra rare, vintage new old stock OA90s and the transistors are the correct sixties Superfuzz mix of vintage Panasonic 2SC828s and Matsushita 'tin can' 2SC539s. These are the exact parts, the vintage schematic is calling for. No other Superfuzz clone is offering this level of absolute, no expenses saved, vintage parts accuracy.

The OA90s and Matsushita 2SC539s are incredibly rare and expensive parts. Searching the internet, you can find the 2SC539s listed for $20+ for a single transistor. There's four pieces in a Reuss SF-02 Goo Goo Fuzz. I am good at parts scouting, but needless to say, these pedals are ranking high above average in parts costs.

A second batch of 75 pedals was released in April 2017. These features a new, red metallic finish. More pictures coming soon (the previous batch had a plain red spray painted finish)

All Reuss pedals are handmade, exclusively using local European labour.
