Fuzz Bass Classics

Fuzz Bass | Bass Guitars | BassCentral.com
Popularized in the 60s and 70s, fuzz bass or distorted and overdriven bass effects are still used today. Early on these effects were often created by overdriving signals directly on the amplifiers. Some players have even cited blown out speakers as a way of creating fuzz sounds. There are many companies now, who have created fuzz pedals for bass guitars to recreate the bass tones heard on famous tracks from bands such as Cream, The Rolling Stones, Thin Lizzy and Motörhead. Here are some popular tracks from the 60s and 70s that utilize a fuzz bass sound.

  • 1962 – Roy Orbison – “Lana”
  • 1965 – Q65 – “I’m A Man”
  • 1966 - The Rolling Stones – “Under My Thumb”
  • 1967 – Cream – “Strange Brew”
  • 1968 – The Doors – “Hello, I Love You”
  • 1969 – Norman Greenbaum – “Spirit in the Sky”
  • 1970 – Black Sabbath – “Sweet Leaf”
  • 1973 – King Crimson – “Easy Money”
  • 1974 – Frank Zappa – “Apostrophe”
  • 1976 – Thin Lizzy – “Jailbreak”
