BACKGROUND

Many/most ‍overdrive ‍pedals ‍comes ‍with ‍a ‍limited ‍audio ‍spectrum/reduced ‍bass ‍and ‍treble (read ‍The ‍Tube ‍Screamer ‍Topology ‍which ‍comes ‍from ‍the ‍impression ‍of ‍a ‍“needed ‍mid ‍hump ‍to ‍cut ‍through ‍in ‍the ‍mix”). ‍

‍Sure yeah, but the ‍drawback ‍of ‍this ‍with ‍guitar ‍pedals ‍is ‍it ‍will ‍sound ‍& ‍feel ‍fake/constrained, as ‍the ‍personality ‍of ‍your ‍amp ‍and ‍guitar ‍disappears ‍when ‍the ‍pedal ‍is ‍activated, and ‍that’s ‍not ‍always ‍wanted.

‍Because ‍of ‍this, ‍with ‍FITZO, ‍we ‍have ‍chosen ‍a ‍different ‍path. ‍FITZO ‍has ‍“full” ‍bandwidth ‍and ‍added ‍to ‍that ‍a ‍guitar ‍tailored ‍tone ‍stack. ‍This ‍works ‍really ‍well ‍if ‍your ‍amplifier ‍and ‍speaker ‍isn’t ‍too ‍bright. ‍FITZO ‍is ‍a ‍natural, ‍rhythmic, ‍tactile ‍sounding ‍thing ‍which ‍some ‍might ‍say ‍is ‍bright ‍or ‍cold ‍while ‍we ‍call ‍it ‍a ‍different ‍kind ‍of ‍chocolate, ‍with ‍more ‍cocoa, ‍less ‍sugar ‍and ‍a ‍well ‍balanced ‍amount ‍of ‍salt ‍added. ‍If ‍you ‍want ‍even ‍more, ‍with ‍pepper ‍or mustard included, ‍check ‍out ‍FITZO PLUS
