DIAMOND BLZ-1 FUZZ
Diamond Pedals BLZ-1 Blaze Fuzz/Distortion
Diamond has thrown its hat into the germanium fuzz ring, and has done so in spectacular fashion. The Blaze is a fantastic entry into the annals of fuzz lore.
The heart of the Blaze is two germanium transistors for some really chewy, warm fuzz tone. The parts are precision matched—they even have some hand-written notes on them—for maximum rockage. There’s a two-band active Baxandall EQ circuit for boosting or cutting frequencies as the player sees fit.
A feature you’ll really like is the way it interacts with your guitar’s controls. For a fuzz with as much meat to its tone, the Blaze cleans up like Mark McGuire. Simply rolling your guitar’s volume back can transform the Blaze from a fire-breathing dragon to a purring kitten with just a hint of sparkle.
The Alt footswitch provides two distinct fuzz tones at the player’s feet. Essentially, it’s like two pedals in one—it’s almost like an “era” switch, as one of the tones is big and burly, while the other is a little more leaned out and harmonically complex. You might say this switch transforms the Blaze from ‘60s to ‘90s and vice versa—with everything in between.
