This is my absolute favorite germanium fuzz pedal. I've owned a lot of fuzzes (vintage and new Fuzz Faces, Fulltone '69 and '70, all kinds of Big Muffs, Tonebenders, Maestro, Analogman Sunface, and a bunch of boutiques). None of them can match this pedal - especially for a strat going into a tweed or Marshall amp. It's got the best of both vintage and modern designs. The tone of this thing is right on. There's a lot of range in the 2 knobs - from a clean boost to light overdrive to a dimed Marshall about to explode. The best way to describe the sound is it's a very good cross between a Fulltone '69 and an Analogman Sunface NKT275. If I'm bringing my strat to a recording session or a jam, this pedal comes along. The way it thickens single coils sounds so natural. The way it reacts and behaves to my picking and knob adjustments makes me feel like I'm playing directly into an amp - not a pedal. Sure, you can get Hendrix tones like the name suggests, but it can do much more than that. With so many choices for silicon fuzzes out there and very little for germanium, it's a shame this pedal was discontinued. Apparently, it had something to do with the ownership of the Hendrix name back when the dispute was happening in the mid 2000's. If you can find this pedal used, it's a gem.
This is the best distortion/fuzz ever for a rhythm player; when you use it for lead, it more than holds its own. Even when cranked to full fuzz, chords stay articulate and clear (no mud in this tone!) Used with single-coils, beautiful Jimi-like sustain appears during solos. For humbuckers, you'll get a LOT of thickness but still stay clear and precise in your picking.
This little stompbox is great.I've bought it after checking few fuzz pedals (including Catalin-Bread V8, Keeley fuzz, Zvex fuzz factory) and I've found this fuzz versatile even though it has only two knobs. I like it when pedals are kept simple. Believe it or not, I bought it to nail the gilmourish "shine on" sound and if the fuzz knob is kept quite low - it does an awsome job.This pedal is amazingly very quite even though I use a strat with noisy singles.I gave it 4 in the "features" category since the AC jack is on the side of the pedal and it makes it very uncomfortable for pedal boards. 5 in Value since it's the cheapest of all the fuzz pedals I checked and 5 in quality since it seems like this is one tough little box that will last forever :)
This pedal is good. You can get a real good fuzz that produces a really crisp tone. But this isn't the pedal to end all pedals. Overall, I like this pedal very much, but wish it had more options.
I am running this fuzz box from my Showmaster. Its connected to a vox wha, and then to a Pro Jr. Simple setup, and provides a classic fuzz sound. The strength lies in its simplicity, turn the volume and fuzz up about 2/3 of the way, and there is your fuzz. Durability with this pedal is superb.
This is not the best piece of equipment I have ever played but it sure beats buying a humbucker pickup guitar or a guitar either two single coils and a bridge humbuckerfor of tone like what that fuzz box gives. It is though not worth as much as I paid for though.
Shure there's wilder Fuzz Boxes out there, got a bunch of processors, but I still love to go back to the good ole days & just run the Fuzz & CryBaby. My practice AMP sits in my bedroom on in my sleep & the pedals are there also. Bang for your BUCK! 5 years with this one. Looks of the new one here, you may want to put rubber grommets around the knobs for ease of turning with your toes. Play BareFoot!!!
This fuzz box is great. On a clean amp, you can get a really nice distortion that i like for playing punk music. When you switch to a neck pickup and roll your tone down, you can get squeals and barks out of it, very cool. When your amp is overdriven, this provides a layer of warmth and smooths your tone out, and leaves your amp's tone untouched, unlike that nasty Metal Zone. I highly recommend this stompbox for anyone who wants some wicked vintage analog fuzz scream that is good for multiple styles.
