Guns n’ Roses, Rival Sons, Eagles of Death Metal Guitarists Endorse Rotosound’s Vintage Fuzz Pedal

GN'R, Rival Sons, Eagles of Death Metal Guitarists Endorse Rotosound's Vintage Fuzz Pedal -

Great guitarists, including Richard Fortus famous for brandishing the guitar with Guns 'n' Roses and Thin Lizzy, Scott Holiday lead guitarist and founder member of Rival Sons and Dave Catching who has been wielding the guitar for such bands as Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal have decided to follow in the footsteps of the legendary Jimmy Page by choosing to use the Rotosound Vintage Fuzz Pedal.

The recent reissue of the Rotosound Vintage Fuzz Pedal has caused quite a stir in the music world. It uses the same essential 1960's design combined with modern components. The up to the minute technology gives an improved consistency and stability whilst by staying faithful to the original germanium workings, the authentic tone flavour and yesterday's mojo are preserved. Made in the UK, it remains one of the simplest and easiest pedals to use, it is robust and hard wearing encased in a traditional press steel box. 

Richard Fortus, lead guitarist with legendary band Guns 'n' Roses, loves his new Rotosound Fuzz Pedal. When describing it he said 'It's very Tonebender-ish. Reminds me a lot of my MkII but with more hair and beef to it. I have a ton of fuzz pedals (both vintage and new), and the Rotosound has instantly become one of my go-to fuzz's for sure!'

Scott Holiday, guitarist with Classic Rock's 'Breakthrough Act Of The Year 2012', Rival Sons, has also discovered the musical qualities of the new pedal. 'As a big fan of a proper fuzz box, it was exciting to hear Rotosound was going to do a limited run of their classic 60's RotoFuzz. When I plugged it in it was very musical, nice range of tones...and very, very dirty (If desired. Yes please). Plus, they didn't foul up the classic look and enclosure. Keeping it absolutely accurate, with the sound AND look. Nice one, Rotosound! I like it.'

Dave Catching, highly influential producer as well as guitarist with Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death metal has also been impressed with the new pedal. He commented 'The Rotosound Fuzz Pedal has that incredible 60's psychedelic sound I've been searching for. Now it's back and better than ever!!! Get one while you can!!!!'
