The Mutant Fuzz is Fredric Effects’ version of the Os Mutantes (Regulus VIII) fuzz.
The Regulus VIII is similar in topology to a silicon Fuzz Face, but with a more gritty and trebley character. The Mutant Fuzz is pretty much a straight clone with some added power and RF interference filtering – so it won’t pick-up the radio like the originals sometimes do! The level of gain is fixed at ‘just right’, although you can roll back your guitar volume pot to clean up a bit. The tone control is a switch for hi/low. The hi setting sounds very 60s, whereas the low is positively doomy.
