The first microphone capable of recreating the retro sound of the beginning of the century!


I was looking for recordings to find that distorted sound and saturated with some folk, country and blues recordings at the time when everything was recorded directly from the microphone to the acetate disc.

I thought the soundtrack of the period material was incredible The plugins vst in post production did not really bluff me and it was impossible to be able to reproduce the same effects live.

So I looked for the way to recreate this effect to be able to use it in concert. It's done with the Fuzzyphone!





The Fuzzyphone is a small TOYS dynamic microphone manufactured by hand in Brittany in St Brieuc. The particularity of this microphone is its germanium distortion circuit giving a retro and vintage effect perfect for your creations and musical productions.

It is as good on the voices as on all kinds of acoustic instruments where you want a strong coloring.

You can use it for both studio and live recording.  




Measure the desired effect! The potentiometer at the back of the microphone lets you increase or decrease the "Fuzzyphone" effect. It is possible to choose between a clean sound or more retro with much distortion according to your choice.






As for a conventional static microphone you plug it with a balanced XLR cable on a mixer or an external pre-amp that has phantom + 48vdc power and you're done!
