Jen Fuzz FZ III

made in Pescara/Italy in the mid '70s


The FZ III has been available under different brand names (FBT, JEN, JHS and Ricken's). It features a set of two silicon BC239Cs and one BC238B transistor, making it a very gnarly pedal, which can be completely saturated or crisp and tight. The general sound is pretty much on the bright side. The FZ III works well driven by a boost pedal in front of and an EQ behind it in order to further shape the tone.
