This model was built by ‘D. Sperrin’, but little more is known about it. The Sperrin Fuzz Box was advertised various times during 1966, and was being manufactured in Southport, then in Lancashire (now Merseyside).

The units may have been built by Dave Sperrin, who manufactured mixing desks for DJs in Southport, during the 1980s.

  1. I was amazed to see this! Not sure when this was posted, or if still active?
    My father David Sperrin, started his business making these fuzz boxes in the wash house I think they were called, where laundry was done before washing machines at the back of 20 Matlock road, together with my mother Beryl Sperrin, who posted these around the world.
    I was only two at the time.
    By the time I was 11 years old, I was building mobile disco circuit boards for twin decks and sound to light units, and making speaker cabinets.
    My father passed away about forty years ago.
    My Mother re-married and lives in North wales.
    Last time I visited the UK, I saw one of my fathers first valve amps in a music shop for 200 pounds! hard to believe any of his gear still survives?
    I now live in Perth Australia, since 2000.
