The Astra is a clone of the Astrotone Fuzz, produced by the Universal Amplifier Company in New York City from 1966 to 1968. The Astrotone circuit is one of the first silicon fuzz units, developed in an era when germanium was still the industry standard. Interestingly, it was also one of the first pedals to feature a tone knob.
