Diamond’s Fireburst has been at the forefront of boutique fuzz for ages, and the pedal now checks in at half the size of its original housing, with every ounce of gooey fuzziness remaining intact.
The core of the fuzz is still thick and creamy fuzz tones with a two-band active Baxandall EQ for tons of tonal sculpting post fuzz. The active design ensures that each and every setting sounds musical: a rarity with tone configurations—especially with fuzz pedals.
The first iteration of the Fireburst contained a mid-boost footswitch that transformed the character of the fuzz to a mighty mid-heavy distortion. In shedding that winter weight, the Fireburst simply moved this capability to a toggle switch, so as not to lose out on this buttery dirt tone.
Just like the original, the smaller Fireburst contains a heaping helping of low-noise circuitry, primo parts and bang-up construction that Diamond is known for.
