A fuzzbox is a guitar effects box comprising an amplifier and a clipping circuit, which generates a deliberately distorted version of the input signal.
The generated signal is rich in extra harmonics of the input signal, particularly odd harmonics, and will also produce cross-modulation between any non-harmonic components of the input signal, leading to dissonance. For this reason, power chords are often used when using fuzzboxes, to reduce dissonance.
Fuzzbox is also an all-women punk band.
