However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days

  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

EarthQuaker Devices Fuzz Master General Octave Fuzz

The Fuzz Master General from EarthQuaker Devices is a dirty fuzz pedal based on the vintage Ace Tone Fuzz Master FM-2 Professional fuzz machine, which was very similar to the massively popular Super Fuzz. EarthQuaker's engineers have re-designed the vintage circuitry to bring the pedal up to modern day standards. Its accurate Fuzz Control is a central feature, and offers a huge spectrum of dirty, gritty tones from almost clean to 'wall of fuzzy noise'. The Voice toggle switch increases this range even further, it has a huge impact on the characteristics of fuzz tone, upper octave clarity and the output volume level. To add even more options in regards to sculpting your sound, the Fuzz Master General features a Tone dial for controlling your treble or bottom end levels. This compact, versatile fuzz will fit in perfectly on any pedal board.

The EarthQuaker Fuzz Master General's Voice toggle switch suits your need for that extra dash of dirt and grit; it selects between germanium, silicon and no diode clipping. Germanium diodes offer more output level and a looser, more open fuzz while the silicon diodes compress the signal and supply a much tighter tone. When set to no diode clipping (center position) you can attain an almost completely clean upper octave that borders on ring modulation. Whilst the vintage Fuzz Master had a foot switch that selected from two different tone settings, The Fuzz Master General has a variable Tone control allowing you to dial in a wealth of sounds from a wide open treble heavy assault to a super-scooped, low end roar.


  • Fuzz: Turning this control clockwise creates more dirty fuzz.
  • Tone: Mellow, scooped tones clockwise. Brighter, more open tones anti-clockwise.
  • Level: Adjusts the output volume level.
  • Voice: Three way toggle switch which selects the clipping style:
    • Mode 1: Germanium clipping - This produces a more open and looser fuzz.
    • Mode 2: Silicon clipping - This produces a tighter, compressed fuzz.
    • Mode 3: Open, pure transistor drive - This produces an almost clean octave-up effect and creates a sound almost verging on ring modulation.

CAUTION! Mode 3 is extremely loud; reduce the level when using this mode.For the best octave effect, use the neck pickup and play above the 12th fret. This is an analog octave so single notes work best however full chords produce an awesome, destructive roar!

A Bright LED indicator means you stay in control even on the darkest of stages, and to top it all off the Fuzz Master General is handmade in Ohio, USA to a supreme level of quality.
