OVERVIEW

Unmistakable Jimi voodoo.

The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face is a meticulously faithful reproduction of the 1969-70 Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face that Jimi used on classic albums like Band of Gypsys. Dunlop's engineering department examined hoards of vintage Fuzz Faces, honing in on a few units that possessed unmistakable Jimi voodoo.

The Hendrix Fuzz Face is built around the toneful BC108 silicon transistor. It is authentic in every detail — a hand wired brown circuit board with no solder mask and circuitry carefully matched to the original specs. The look is 100% accurate too — that groovy circular chassis with tooled clones of the original Fuzz Face knobs in the rare and vintage turquoise hammertone finish.

Hendrix was the master of fuzz — an artist with many subtle shadings at his command. His love affair with the legendary Fuzz Face pedal began in the early days of the Experience and continued to evolve throughout his blazing career.

A truly playable collectIble for any Hendrix or Fuzz Face fanatic. Powered by 9V battery.

      I bought this pedal for Christmas, and then sent it back. In my opinion, this pedal sounds nothing like Hendrix whatsoever. If you want a better, more diverse fuzz pedal then just get a Big Muff. It sounds a lot more like hendrix than this thing - the fuzz face has no tone versatility. I played my fuzz face both with my pedal board (it did something funny here) and without, and it just didn't cut that classic hendrix sound for me. Now I played it through a Les Paul and a Marshall JCM, so you would think that it would sound similar to Hendrix, but no...To me it seems like you are paying for the name here: not quality or performance.

          Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

          I have a G&L strat that I run thru this fuzz pedal to a Tube Tone Vibroverb 63' reproduction. I've been looking for a fuzz pedal for quite a while that would be touch sensitive and put just enough hair on the notes. This combination totally nails the Hendrix "clean" sound. Everything from "The wind cries Mary", "Hey Joe" to "Little Wing" sound exact. Most video demo's I've watched all demonstrate the high gain dirty sound of the fuzz pedal, but almost none demonstrate the cleaner sounds. The pedal is perfect for classic rock riffs and blues based rock. I run the pedal at 3/4ths volume and fuzz knob on full with the guitars volume knob backed off to taste. If this is the sound you're looking for, look no further… this is the one!

            Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

            This pedal is excellent for certain players: those who have the right gear to accompany it and who have the time to really sit down and dial in the right sound. This isn't going to be for everyone, but I guess no pedal really is! A cranked tube amp really makes this thing shine. If you are using a solid state amp and are considering this pedal, just know that you are probably not going to hear the Fuzz Face at its full potential, so be very cautious.

            This is not a "plug-in-and-play" kind of pedal. It took me a couple of sittings to tweak my amp and the pedal settings enough to get a good sound and to be honest I did not like it at first. After putting the time in, I have gotten a really good, pummeling fuzz tone with this thing and my Vox AC30. I love it! It is probably best known for working in conjunction with single coil pickups but I have gotten a really great sound with my mid-2000's Gibson SG Standard. So, I would recommend trying it even if you have a guitar with humbuckers!

              Old school fuzz tone

              from Pembroke, MA

              Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

              I love this fuzz box. It gives me that "acid" tone I want on certain tunes.
              I picked up an old Pignose 40V and along with my Dunlop Wah Wah this Fuzz box makes the package complete. The Pignose is all tube so it really sounds cool when the fuzz and the wah are doing their thing. Built strong and sturdy, with easy controls it fits the bill perfectly.
              Very good quality construction.

              Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

              This unit has great vintage mojo that gives good Hendrix tone w/Strat. I sent mine back to exchange for the MXR 108 classic fuzz. Basically the same unit with bypass, ac and smaller in size. The Fuzz face also has a noisy pop to the foot switch and runs on a 9 volt only. It is made very sturdy and is a true recreation. In order to get the transistors to really kick in you have to turn the fuzz knob up almost all the way. The unit I had was a littel week so I had to run it with a DOD Grey OD clone to boost the gain a little. Overall it has great tone and with a Moen Jimi pedal and a decent tube amp cranked up its Hendrix/Trower all the way. Pretty cool

              Close but lacking

              By Lee

              from Memphis

              Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

              I ordered this pedal knowing it would not be an onslaught of noise, but some really good tones. I ran it alone and then with my Blackstone Appliances mossfet overdrive. Since I play thru a squeaky clean amp, I knew I would need to layer this pedal with some kind of signal boost and these two pedals together produced some of the best tones I'd heard in 40 years of playing. But, today I returned the JH-F1 because it couldn't run either alone, or within my chain without radio signal interference. I could literally listen to someone carry on a conversation. Needless to say I was disappointed. I gave it decent ratings for quality because the components are good. Dunlop just needs to clean up the circuit.

              Hendrix Fuzz Face

              Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

              What can you say, you get what you pay for. This his is amazing, and very vintage, with a definite "voodoo" sound. Although it is not very responsive (not much fuzz until the knob is almost all the way up), it is an excellent sound. The same thing goes for the volume knob. However, that is practically irrelevant to how good the pedal sounds. Very similar to Jimi. Sounds unbelievable through my 1974 100 watt Super Lead head. Of course Jimi used a strat, but my Gibson 57 Les Paul Custom and my Gibson 58 Les Paul custom sound unbelievable as well. My strat sounds equally good also.

              simple but classic

              Comments about Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Pedal:

              I just got this recently because several of my favorite guitar players used it, mainly Gilmour and Hendrix. I replaced my Big Muff with this and this thing wins every time. The BM might have a little more sustain and more features with a tone knob. But you have to really push the muff to get it to sound right. You don't have to do that with this pedal. I sounds good with strats, teles, and les pauls unlike the BM. It only sounded good with single coils to me. Plus I'm playing through a solid state for now. The fuzz face cleans up really easy. Set the Volume at about 70% and Fuzz at 100% and forget it. Just adjust your guitars volume to clean it up. Cleaned up, it sounds more like a rude distortion pedal, and cranked it sounds like classic fuzz and not mud.
