BLACK CAT PEDALS

Black Cat Super Fuzz

Black Cat Super Fuzz

The first modern boutique recreation of the original Univox Super Fuzz, the Black Cat Super Fuzz was featured prominently (on bass!) on the track “Sabotage” by the Beastie Boys. Current users include J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr) and Gary Clark Jr.

  • The Black Cat Super Fuzz is a modern recreation of the original Univox Super Fuzz pedal that was made in Japan by Shin-ei in the seventies. The Super Fuzz, in its various iterations, has developed a cult following over the years and is now more popular than ever. Part of its distinct sound is derived from its two-stage octave doubling circuit – beneath the massive torrent of fuzz is a hint of upper octave; not quite as prominent as an Octavia, but definitely noticeable. After more than two decades, the Black Cat Super Fuzz is still the best Super Fuzz based pedal available. But don’t just take our word for it…

    “These are THE best Superfuzz on the market, and I make one!”
