Ever played an original FuzzFace from around 1970? (HINT: Not AT ALL the same sound as ones with the same namesake being mass-produced currently.) Fulltone's has two intentionally mismatched (for harmonic content) silicon transistors that snarl and spit... not for the meek! If you put the Fuzz on 10 you will rip and you might get all sorts of oscillation and weirdness... but that's Rock. Don't try using it with a wah wah... you can't and neither could Jimi without it screaming and howling. You want polite and quiet? Go elsewhere. You want art in a box? Come on in. Housed in a 16 gauge steel box and powder coated deep blue this pedal is a bit unruly but with some warmth... ideal for older 4 input Marshall amps it has much more FUZZ than the '69 Pedal and includes a Mid control for extra clarity and cut.
