A full-time fuzz in a miniature housing perfect for your pedalboard.

The FFM2 Germanium Fuzz Face Mini is based on ’66-’68 era pre-silicon Fuzz Faces famous for warm vintage fuzz tones provided by slightly mismatched germanium transistors. The Fuzz Face Mini pedal line features legendary Fuzz Face tones in smaller, more pedalboard-friendly housings with several modern appointments: true bypass switching, a bright status LED, an AC power jack and a convenient battery door.

      Comments about Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Red Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I have a Vox Tone Bender! Best Fuzz pedal you can get. I didn't want to take a chance of using it and someone stealing it so I've been searching for another germanium pedal that sounds good for live performance. This one is as good as any new fuzz I've found. Love the size of it, sounds fine and cost is fair!

      Comments about Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Red Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This fuzz is great. If you know how to use a volume knob on your guitar, then you will love this pedal. if you are a all the way to 10 guy/girl you will miss out on it's versitility. If you are thinking of buying it, do it. WARNING: my first one had an issue where the light stayed on when off. Returned it with ease @MF! New one rocks!

        If you spend a lot more money you can of course get a better sounding pedal. But for the money this pedal is great.

          Comments about Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Red Guitar Effects Pedal:

          I bought this because my band mate has the mini blue 108 version and it sounds exactly like my Fulltone 70 108C. So I bought this one because I have a white dot NKT 275 sunface in a big FF housing that won't fit on my board. Well I won't lie, at first there were some slight tonal differences, and I mean very slight. If you were sitting in a crowd I couldn't imagine being able to tell the difference. But I installed a carbon zinc battery and messed around with inner trim pot and all I can think now is what can I get for my sunface on eBay.

          If you're looking at these just pull the trigger. Whether you're playing with the guitar volume on 7 on the neck pickup or on 10 with the bridge pickup this thing hung with a pedal costing three times as much and is three times smaller.

          I'm probably going to buy the other two from Musicians Friend and sell both my 70 & Sunface and pocket some extra cash. I wish I had this five years ago it would have saved me some serious coin...

          I use a Fender CS '56 Strat, a Catalinbread DLS MkIII as a foundation overdrive, into a Marshall Jubilee 2553 50w 2x12 cab.

            Comments about Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Red Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I placed an order for this pedal immediately after seeing it for the first time. I knew the original was a classic (used by Hendrix, etc.), and the size was always the deal breaker, but this pedal fixes that, and it's near-perfect. I love the sound (haven't tried the Silicon and Hendrix models)...it's nice and fat and warm. It's not overly bold, which I like. It is very smooth and organic-sounding. The controls remain the same (Fuzz, Volume), and there is the welcome addition of a 9V jack and indicator light. Highly recommended!

                I Liked the size along with the addition of the ac adaptor and the led indicator.
                After reading reading info on the transistors used and a helpful review on how the
                Guitar volume switch actually controls the fuzz effect, I purchased the pedal and am
                Very happy that I did. It's exactly the sound I was looking for. Great fuzz and sustain.

                  Comments about Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Red Guitar Effects Pedal:

                  Never had a fuzz pedal before, so when I saw they made them in a mini size I had to try one. And I am sure glad I did!
                  I can see this pedal getting a lot of use in my rig beause it just so so cool. Love the fuzzy distortion. Fits nicely on my oedalboard and looks great too.
                  I rread a lot about fuzz pedals being tricky, but I didn't find that.
                  This added another dimension to my rig!
