Amazing condition, near mint, second hand, vintage octave fuzz. This fuzz pedal has two octave fuzz settings, one with scooped mids and one with a really thick mid-range. The unit was branded under (and is identical to) a variety of names, including Mica Fuzz, Bruno Fuzz Machine, Aria Diamond Fuzz and Fuzz Machine (unbranded).
this was built by Maxon in answer to the Super Fuzz. Maxon is the most underrated of the early Japanese pedal makers. They came up with the Tube Screamer pedal yet everyone still thinks of that pedal as being an Ibanez production. It's a Maxon designed pedal built for Ibanez. Same as this pedal. Bart's effects database should specify all of the Maxon made pedals as they built this one under 25-30 different brand names.
