Boss did an awesome job at putting everything inside of this pedal. It's housed in the famous Boss enclsoure, so it should be able to withstand anything you throw at it. The pedal uses a FET bypass which has a little bit of tone suckage, but it won't be much of an issue if you throw it in a true bypass looper. The rotary switch helps make things a bit more versatile, but it's still a ridiculously over the top pedal.
Fuzz I mode is like a normal aggressive fuzz tone. It's somewhat bland when using it as a normal fuzz, and it's definitely not meant for those lower gain tones. The tone knob with the shaping frequency knob really helps adjust the tone to where you want it. However, most people who get this pedal are mainly looking at the Fuzz II mode. It has this insane sounding speaker ripping kinda tone that can only be describing as ridiculous. Seriously, listen to some Electric Wizard, and you'll get the idea. That's what this pedal is mainly used for, and it excels at this genre like no other pedal out there.
If you're looking at this pedal for a normal fuzz, I highly recommend checking out a different pedal. However, if you're going for that insane stoner fuzz sound, this is the exact pedal you want. It's so crazy over the top and uncontrollable that it fits in perfectly for the slower downtuned stoner metal genre. Fuzz II is the mode you want, and it's best if you use something like a Sunn O))) or similar amplifier to really get that authentic stoner metal tone.
