Electro-Harmonix Announces the New Flatiron Fuzz

Posted 11/30/2018


Electro-Harmonix announces the Flatiron Fuzz, an extremely versatile, classic op-amp powered fuzz/distortion unit housed in a pedalboard friendly, die-cast chassis. The distinctive sound of the Flatiron Fuzz is a result of its classic, late ‘70s style circuitry and the fact that it delivers symmetrical hard clipping. It’s EHX’s take on the RAT2™ pedal, only we think it’s better.



The pedal features three controls: Volume, Drive and Filter. Volume sets the output level and Drive adjusts the amount of sustain and distortion. The unique Filter control is actually a low pass filter with a movable cut-off frequency. This lets the player dial in the precise amount of high-end they prefer, from dark to raunchy.

At lower drive settings the Flatiron Fuzz remains fairly clean and adds a pleasing, mild distortion. Turning drive up produces very dense, thick, meaty tones. As the guitar’s volume is turned down, it cleans up, but not all the way.
The Flatiron Fuzz is named after the historic Flatiron Building in New York City. It’s an iconic landmark located just down the block from EHX headquarters in the 1970s and it’s the building pictured on the pedal.

The new pedal features true bypass switching for maximum signal path integrity in bypass mode, comes equipped with a 9V battery, and accepts an optional EHX9.6DC-200 AC adapter. It is available now and carries a U.S. street price of $72.70.

The RAT2 is a trademark of Act Audio.
