The Axis Fuzz Kit is based in the Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz, the effect pedal responsible for Jimi Hendrix sound in Axis Bold As Love. What else is there to say? The Axis Fuzz uses silicon transistors for a more stable behavior compared to germanium circuits. It has a bright and warm sound that can easily cut through the mix when used for solos, while retaining a smooth character and a fat bottom end. The Axis Fuzz can also be used for chords as it doesn’t get too messy.
The Axis Fuzz has a high input impedance that avoids the loading of your instrument pickups and preserving its original sound, with a combination of PNP and NPN silicon transistors. While it only has two knobs, Drive and Volume, the Axis Fuzz sound will change drastically depending on the input volume (so just with rolling back your guitar’s volume you can get a completely different sound) or your playing dynamics.
