Another great and genuine YouTube eccentric, Fran creates and builds the “FranTone” fuzz boxes. And the Vibutron. And the PeachFuzz. And the Sputnik. And the Hi-Ball. And so much more. But she is much more brilliantly off-center than that. And she knows her stuff. More than that, she knows stuff you’ve forgotten. She even knows stuff you’ve forgotten that you didn’t know in the first place. After all, rock and roll never started rocking until the creation of fuzz.
