  • so, how much would you guys say this Fuzz is actually worth? (B-B Buzzaround)

    i'd imagine $25,000 is a bit high, no? any ideas what one should actually sell for, taking its condition into account?

    Look, I have no idea what an original Buzzaround is currently going for, but come on - if you're going to claim it was once owned by a "progressive rock legend" and that it was used on historically significant recordings, you'd best be ready to say who it was and name the tracks, and back it all up with proper providence - or I'm calling bullpucky.

        According to the Urban Dictionary:

        1. bullpucky

        A polite way to dismiss or reject something without having to say bull****************.


        Yeah, I'd say that pretty well covers it.

          I'd be willing to bet it's Steve Howe, and it's one of the ten zillion distortions he used on the intro of Heat of the Moment.

          And probably nothing else.

                  I'd say it's about worth 2.5 gold Klons or whatever a mint Mk1.5 fetches these days

                      JHS will clone it for more than an original costs...after all its an original circuit as far as you know.

                    the seller bought it at a Buy It Now auction for $3000 early this year from a collector in Australia
                    the paintjob isn't original (but is the correct colour for an early 3 knob Buzzaround)

                      Thanks. It's obviously VERY over-priced then. Any idea who the prog rocker was?

                        there is no prog-rocker - that part of the listing is also bollocks. the seller was incredibly stupid to think that people wouldn't notice him flipping the pedal he bought mere months before. didn't even relist on a different eBay account from the one he bought it on either. high-grade dipstick for sure.
