The F-Bomb is a simple and easy-to-use fuzz with a much smoother output than you'd normally expect froma fuzz pedal. It can get aggressive but never peaks in the mid-range or top-end and you can manually adjust how much you want it to sag. This affects the attack of your pick and if you want to thicken the fuzz, you'll turn it all the way up. When the sag is on 0 the pedal will act like an aggressive overdrive.
The F-Bomb is an earthy, organic sounding pedal that can go forom simple drive to hardcore fuzz, but without the harsh bite.

Here's what T Jauernig say about the F-Bomb 3 Fuzz
The F-Bomb 3 is the third generation of the F-Bomb and harkens back to one of the classic fuzz circuits, The Jordan Bosstone.
Fuzz can be a very cool, or very heyneous effect to use depending on your perspective. But with the F-Bomb 3 there’s a little something for everybody.
From a mild overdriven sound, to thick fuzz, to sputtery mayhem, to fat subharmonic overtones there is a lot of sonic ground that can be covered by the F-Bomb
- Sensitivity: This controls the signal strength into the input of the circuit, and the amount of gain/fuzz that can be achieved. Along with the sag control you can also use this to adjust the sound to compensate for different signal strengths of different guitars/pickups.
- Sag: the most powerful control of the F-Bomb 3. With this control all the way counter-clockwise the tone is milder in nature, more like an overdrive. As you turn the control clockwise you’ll notice the fuzz gets thicker and then eventually into full on wacked out psychedelia!
- Mini-toggle: This toggle switch is a 3 position presence control. Set it to what sounds best to your ear, and works best with your amp. This is just preset selection of very subtle high frequency filtering. Don’t expect massive differences, but it can be very useful depending on your rig. Different settings of the sensetivity and sag controls will also affect where you may want to set this toggle.
- Volume: It is what it is, and you’ll find plenty of it on tap.
