Last updated on April 9, 2024 4:50 pm Details


In this review post, we’re going to be discussing the Ibanez FZMINI 850 Fuzz Mini Fuzz Pedal, including an overview of its unique features.

Product Description

Part of the made-in-Japan MINI pedal series, The FZMINI’s circuit is based on our legendary OD850 fuzz pedal. The mini version features two smaller knobs for Tone and Level, as well as a significantly larger Sustain knob in the middle. True bypass switching provides the shortest, most direct signal path, as well as the cleanest tone, while 100% analog circuitry helps add a natural, organic character to the sound. The FZMINI offers a warm, vintage fuzz tone, all while saving significant space on your pedalboard.

Our Verdict

The matt orange is stunning, and the noises are to die for. The OD850 was a re-badged Maxon clone of a 1973 ‘violet’ vintage Ram’s Head Big Muff manufactured for Ibanez with a couple of adjustments, and it had a somewhat more useful tone stack and crunchier character that distinguished it apart from its Muffy brethren, making it a collector’s piece.

This small reissue is great for pedalboard space, but it also includes modern features like a center-negative power jack. Dime the sustain and you’ll be gone for days.

Where to Buy

The best place to buy this product has to be Amazon, due to their competitive pricing and fantastic customer service.
