The Nice Marmot Fuzz is a flexible, uproarious fuzz pedal specially crafted for any guitarist or bassist to find their favorite fuzz tone.

SKU: NM4 Category: Tags: , , ,


The Nice Marmot Fuzz was born from a quest for the perfect fuzz pedal for bass. It is based on the Tonebender with Toneburner mods, and includes additional modifications that are perfect for those who refuse to compromise on their low- and high-frequency tone. Each unit comes with three hand-picked Germanium transistors (two low-gains and one high-gain) and a Germanium diode, giving you a wide range of beautiful fuzz tone. Plenty of output volume on tap from the Volume knob, and a Fuzz control that lets you go from tasteful, classic, Germanium-fueled overdrive to beastly, teeth-gnashing fuzz. The tone stack allows for separate control over the bass and treble frequency ranges, perfect for any bassist or guitarist looking to either stay in balance or stand out with their mix. The Attack knob lets you dial in the amount of compression in the fuzz, great particularly those who like to hear the grind of their pick attack.

The prototype of this pedal has been a staple of every one of my pedalboards since its inception, and I honestly have not found a better sounding fuzz than this. But that’s just, like, my opinion, man.

Each Carcharias Effects pedal is hand-made by one person in his home workshop who loves making music, and making things that make music. Every purchase you make enables me to continue making more pedals, so your support is very much appreciated. That said, I take responsibility for the build quality of every pedal I make comes, and offer a 24-month warranty on each one, not covering normal wear-and-tear or abuse.

All the PCBs that I sell on this site were designed personally by me, but the fabrication is outsourced to third-party PCB fabrication services. Once they are designed, I order them in relatively small batches. I personally test every batch that I receive; however, as I am a strong believer in minimizing waste, there are cases in which I may sell perfectly functioning PCBs that might have some design flaw. I take responsibility for these design flaws (if any) and will specify their fixes or workarounds in the product's specific build document.

If you should encounter any issues with your product, please feel free to reach out to me via the contact form on this website. As I am based in Israel, I understand the inconvenience added by international shipping, and so I will be happy to assist in troubleshooting with you any problems before resorting to international shipping in case a repair needs to be made.
