Red Sun Music: Quadrafuzznia RS1Z Fuzz Pedal


This guy is the maddest of the bunch. The 1Z is a high-gain, full-range fuzz with a ton of detail and a ton of compression.

The architecture takes its roots from the whacked out fuzz circuits usually reserved for 70’s style octave-fuzz units…. without the octave. We gave it big fat FET front end, then stacked a couple of super high-gain BC108 class-A stages. These drive a Schottky/BJT asymmetric clipping stage for oodles of freshly squeezed harmonics.

Remember “The Banana Splits”? That show from the sixties with those always slightly out of focus, mad hairy puppets? If that show were a circuit it’d be this guy.
