Comments about Outlaw Effects Five O'Clock Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

I bought two at the same time. I bought this and the Vox Trike Fuzz pedal (more than twice the price of this one), and to be honest, this pedal convinced me. Way more natural, classic sound most of us are looking after, no bells and whistles, just a good plain ol fuzz pedal. The Trike Fuzz is just a unique, non vintage or classical sound, it has more of a digital sound to it. The Outlaw Five O'Clock is tiny, so saves pedalboard space. The only negative comment, if it's even a negative one, is that the switch is somewhat hard when you step on it. The Trike Fuzz is smooth as butter. Definitely recommend this, specially for the price.

Comments about Outlaw Effects Five O'Clock Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

I have never played a Fuzz-face or a Pro Co Rat, but the Outlaw is inferior to my 80`s Arion Distortion for treble tone definition. However the price is right. Would recommend with reservations.

      Comments about Outlaw Effects Five O'Clock Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

      First Impressions:
      The name suckered me in. I'm kind of a fool for naming conventions like this, so Outlaw got me. I also appreciated that they avoided the double entendre naming conventions that fuzz pedals tend to go for. I'd rather not have a pedal called "The Dirty Pickle", or "The Fuzzy Crotch", or "Phallic Phuzz" on my pedal board while playing worship music at church. It was also smaller than I thought it would be, but no big deal.

      Sound:
      If you were expecting any subteties, throw those expectations out the window. This is a reasonably priced fuzz pedal designed to fuzz the mess out your guitar, so if you're down with that, you're in the right place. I believe this was designed to emulate Big Mff fuzztones (don't quote me on that), so expect heavy heavy fuzz. You can dial it back some with the sustain knob, but to my ear, this pedal works best at around 1 to 2 o'clock. Too low and it's just a tad muddy with a lot of hiss and too high goes into almost metal distortion territory.

      And don't expect to clean up with your guitar's volume or tone knobs. Volume goes from 0 to fuzz fast and then just goes to loud fuzz after that but what do you expect? This ain't a Five O'clock Gentle Tone Bender, it's a dang fuzz! Guitar's tone knobs do absolutely nothing. Thick fuzz at 0 and thick fuzz at 10 with no appreciable difference. But again, remember what this is.

      Helpful tip:
      Put your overdrive pedal in your chain before this pedal, not after. If it's before, and both are engaged, it'll boost the fuzz sound with some overdrive clarity. If it is after the fuzz, you'll just get more hiss and the guitar will disappear in the midst.

      Verdict:
      Hard to beat at this price. Don't mistake my criticisms for lack of satisfaction. The fuzz that comes out of this thing belies the diminutive stature and cost, so as long as you know what you're getting into, this is a good buy. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because while a good value, it's still not quite a 5 star dynamo.

          To my ears, this fuzz box sounds better with a P90 equipped guitar rather than humbuckers. I run a LP into this thing, then into a tube screamer and it is awesome.

              Comments about Outlaw Effects Five O'Clock Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal:

              The first thing I noticed about this fuzz when I got it was how small it was...way smaller than I expected. That's a GOOD thing. The only other fuzz I've ever played/owned is a Maestro Fuzztone back in the 60's (still own it) so I really can't compare it to any currently popular fuzzes.. This one sounds totally different than the Maestro. Very smooth sounding when saturated and makes for some super violin sounding leads, and "fuzzy" when the sustain or guitar volume are turned down.

              This is a really fun effect to play with good versatility, very good price, and a really great size.

              I have two pedals, this one and modtone's the fuzz pedal. The most one one is pretty good but you can get way more fuzz and a better price. If I had to choose between the two, it would probably be this one.
