Fuzzbox
A fuzzbox is (surprise surprise) a fuzzy sounding overdrive and distortion effect that connects between the guitar and amplifier. It produces a distinctively dirty sound that can be heard clearly on the Isley Brothers' "Summer Breeze". There was also a mediocre 80s band called Fuzzbox, by the bye.
