This is a detailed replica of the original 1965 Burns Buzzaround pedal that to many is the HOLY GRAIL OF EFFECTS.

The Buzzaround also came in a unique wedge shaped casing with controls on the front. This added to the pedals uniqueness. and was most famously used by Robert Fripp.

      Many people ask us how each transistor differs in tone. Everyone’s ears are different but here is our small guide

      OC75: Bright and high gain, snappy in tone, sounds raspy in a 3 transistor circuit such as the MKI.5
      OC81D: Smooth gain lots of saturation
      2G381: This is what gives the MKI its sag when you bend a note. They are key to the MKIs Tone.
      OC44: Bright and Driven Tone
      OC71: More Shrill and Glassy then an OC44
      ACY41: Bright, Raspy, and in your face (ideal for fuzz)
      2n4061: Silicon-based, used in the Shatterbox for crazy amounts of thick fuzz
