The iconic fuzz pedal

Rotosound MKIII Fuzz Pedal in Macaris Denmark Street web

An original Rotosound Fuzz MKIII which belongs to Ant Macari

Rotosound began to augment the catalogue with other musical accessories including fuzz pedals which would go on to shape the sound of guitar from the sixties, seventies, and beyond. Built by Denmark Street neighbour Solasound, the Rotosound Fuzz went through various circuits and enclosures over a few years, following the Tone Bender blueprint.

Another pedal sold by Rotosound was the Growler, an eccentric pedal combining a MKI.5 fuzz with an independent wah-wah circuit. The user operated the way by rotating a rubber pad with their foot and there were no controls for the fuzz or level.
