In 1973, effects legend Craig
Anderton and John Lang launched Seamoon Inc., releasing their flagship
fuzz pedal the same year: the Fresh Fuzz. Initially, a fragile plastic
enclosure design caused these Bakelite pedals to shatter when guitarists
stomped on them, so Seamoon began recasing them in metal enclosures
within a few months. Despite inaccurate reviews that the Fresh Fuzz was
“thin sounding,” it gained popularity and has been used extensively by
artists like Tom Scholz (Boston) and guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson. This
is our tribute to the rarer single op amp 741 version (Version 1).

The "Legends Of Fuzz'" series is a collection of the world's most historic, rare, and sought after circuits.
JHS, fuzz pedals have been in our lineup for over a decade. We have
designed original circuits, replicated classics, and we have seen the
trend of fuzz popularity come and go. The "Legends Of Fuzz'" series is
our tribute to the most important fuzz circuits ever made. It is our way
of ensuring that the stories of these effects live on in the music that
you are going to make. From the earliest days of fuzz in the mid-60s
London scene to the 1990s ex-Soviet military factories that brought the
Big Muff back to life, fuzz tells a story, and that story includes
guitarists just like you. There is nothing more primitive than plugging
your guitar into a vintage fuzz circuit; it is raw, untamed, and so pure
that it pushes the boundaries of what your instrument can accomplish.
Plug into a fuzz and plug into sixty years of beautifully broken sound.
