    Sounds really good but I’ve listened to too many pedal demos over the past few days...they are all starting to sound the same :erk:

    I have never smoked one of those.

    Wait, what are we talking about exactly?

    The first thing I thought within the first two minutes was do you actually have to change settings that much for one song?

    It sounded decent/good but if you need to vary the settings that much, nah.

    It could work well with others though, nice mids and highs with some defined lows.

    Honestly I would barley call it a fuzz. Its more like an adrupt distion to me.

    I am sure it will suit some.

    If my deal happens, I'll acquire the Rosie and pair it with a Rockbox ( hand painted) Boiling Point pedal on one of my pedalboards.

    IMO, the Rosie should sound good for Zeppelin tunes.

    It'll be part of my downsizing/purge in the fx dept.

    As far as Fuzz FX go, the Rosie can be more of an overdrive than a fuzz.

    Think Led Zep II.

    It is, if possible, not the brittle/ultra fuzzy fuzz like a Divi Ever Fuzz.

    In fact Divi hates my guts because I said her fuzzes sound like a circular saw cutting a pipe.

    So, if you like that frizzy fuzz fx, the Rosie is not for you.

    The Rosie is warm.

    Think of Tone Bender MK II.

    Aside from the on/off button. the Rosie has Fuzz; Bias and Volume controls, as well as, a mini toggle swith for normal tone and more treble.

    I'm noodling with the controls, so I'm still experimenting.

    It's very sensitive to my amps bass and treble eq.

    So, if you want that early Zep sound, turn up the amps treble.

    If you like Mick Ronson, Jimmy Page and early Jeff Beck (Beck-O-La), this is your fuzz.

    Definitely not the Stones "Satisfaction" fuzz.

    Cool for Lenny Kravitz stuff too.

    Not a shrill tone.

    Nice fuzz + grit.





    The light on mine is iffy, so if you want a Rosie, it's a safe bet to get a new one.
