Roland AD-50 Double Beat

The Roland Double Beat is another of those funky Japanese 1970s Fuzz-Wahs. The Fuzz section is pretty well done. The first stage has a fairly good sound, which is a lot like a Fuzz Face, followed up by yet another gain stage to distort even more. The three fuzz tone selections are quite different from each other. Then you can kick in the wah and either do fuzz wah or plain old funk wah with no fuzz.The wah function is nothing spectacular, tarnished by a slight volume drop when engaged. Built from 1973-1979.
