Flatiron Fuzz is an extremely versatile, classic op-amp powered fuzz/distortion unit housed in a pedalboard friendly, die-cast chassis. The distinctive sound of the Flatiron Fuzz is a result of its classic, late '70s style circuitry and the fact that it delivers symmetrical hard clipping. It's EHX's take on the RAT2 pedal.

The Flatiron Fuzz features three controls: Volume, Drive and Filter. Volume sets the output level while Drive adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion. The unique Filter control is actually a low pass filter with a movable cut-off frequency. This is especially cool because it lets you dial in just the right amount of high-end - from dark to raunchy.

At lower drive settings the Flatiron Fuzz remains fairly clean and adds a pleasing, mild distortion. Turning drive up produces very dense, thick, meaty tones. As the guitar's volume is turned down, it cleans up, but not all the way.

The Flatiron Fuzz is named after the historic Flatiron Building in New York City. It's an iconic landmark located just down the block from EHX headquarters in the 1970s and it's the building pictured on the pedal.

The new pedal features true bypass switching for maximum signal path integrity in bypass mode, comes equipped with a 9V battery, and accepts an optional EHX9.6DC-200 AC adapter.

Straight-up simple features, just like the classic RAT 2 this pedal is based on. To my ears it's a bit fuller and warmer-sounding, great for dialing in slightly overdriven tones (especially when paired with a Strat or Tele) while still retaining that cocked wah-esque bite when the Drive is cranked higher. This a great versatile addition to any pedalboard.
