"I might as well confess that I'm really an old school guy, totally hooked on the character of vintage stuff. From my 1912 bungalow house to my VW bugs, blue or black Chuck Taylors, tube amps, classic motorcycles and old vintage longboards. I like just about everything from the '50s and '60s." - Michael Swart (Tone Report interview) 

Michael Swart has been building beautiful, vintage-minded amps down in Wilmington, NC for quite some time now and we couldn't be happier to now represent his killer line of amps and pedals! Swart players include Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), John Flansburgh (They Might Be Giants), Greg V, Matthew Sweet, etc...

The Fuzzy Boost is a hand-wired, point-to-point sonic blast to the past with some extra credit, Swart Magic thrown into the mix. This is no mass market, overseas built circuit board pedal. The FB allows you to slide anywhere from a slight boost to over-the-top fuzz at any volume level. 


  • Pre-Volume: Volume before it hits the circuit allows you to clean up or drive more intense fuzz. 
  • Dirt: Your main gain level
  • Post Volume: Allows you to get distortion at any volume level from whisper to over the top
