Hatsubai's review"Classic sounding fuzz"

Dunlop Fuzz Face
Probably the most famous fuzz user out there was Jimi Hendrix. He was a long time user of fuzz pedals to help boost his Marshalls into this insane overdrive that nobody else had going on at the time. His go-to pedal was the fuzz face, and it's still one of the most iconic pedals out there today, complete with its unique shape and its unique sound. The pedal has two knobs that you adjust for the volume and gain, so it's super simple to set up as well.


These things are crazy tough. I've had all kinds of different versions of these come in the shop ranging from the originals to the reissues, and they all withstood the huge amount of abuse that people run through these. The only real problem that ever occurs on these is that the switch will die after decades of hard abuse. Besides some stupid user error things (people plugging in the wrong adapter), there's not much to go wrong with these things. The knobs are laid out well enough to where you can easily see them and get to them. However, I'm not a huge fan of the shape, but I tend to prefer the smallest pedals you can possibly get.


The fuzz sounds great if you're looking for that old school, classic Hendrix fuzz. Anybody who has ever heard Hendrix's tone has heard this thing in use, and it's one of the most stand out sounds out there. It's not the most versatile fuzz out there. It only has two knobs, and its range is limited. It's also not exactly the most organic fuzz out there. I'd give that to the old school big muffs. However, for the fuzz sound that it delivers, I honestly believe nothing out there can really come close. It's a very solid sounding fuzz that delivers tone for days.


If you want that Hendrix sound, this is the pedal you want to get. It's organic sounding, has some good range on the knobs and can deliver a very solid fuzz that other pedals seem to forget. Today's pedals go for all kinds of crazy and wacky features, but they forget that some people are just looking for a classic fuzz. If you're one of those people, this is for you.

Dunlop Fuzz Face
Power and battery powered only battery feared. Will have to use the drill for passing a spot.
1 volume, 1 Gain (fuzz).


Ben there is no simple 'end if the nano muff overdrive ...
But only on battery.


Often it is the pedal with this, believing her to return Hendrix; ben is not Hendrix and it was not his original stuff so it's wrong barr!

There's fuzz and fuzz.

I feel more like a BIG ultra fat and dirty overdrive / fuzz than a dark shade 100% fuzz, I play background volume knob and I gauge the gain according. With over low volume is closer to the typical fuzz but for once it sounds too bee and feeble. It is drier and a nasal big muff for example, much softer and less bumps into a fuzz war and greatly less dynamic than Zvex.

Nevertheless remains a very musical and although it is "dirty" must be precise in his game and his sound.
It may also like any fuzz pedals serve "warm up" the sound and / or granulis putting the zero gain, do with the volume and switch the amp distortion; may be trsmchant.

on the other hand it has a very organic and natural ct that I did not find my other fuzz (big muff, the vintage Russian through the bass big muff) is not dplaire. Under its action is the impression that the rope gets stuck in the button to become one.

This is a unique fuzz type, color, ractivit. Not bad current fuzz sound very well but like all too much.

After it is a very smooth fuzz, it's not sharp or loud for a pet so it's pretty nice.

What I like most is ct "overdrive" chubby on a single coil remains "clear" and dfini gnial for rhythmic, double switching from another c t and sends the classic "metal".

It's a she.

LEO is downright avoid!


I got 40 secondhand and I am aware that is not expensive at all and that even when it is a little more ...

I bought it because of an I-love fuzz (I basicly gently but surely) and that the golden opportunity was Introduced to me.
I do not have to buy the new car I really find too chre for his overall record against my sound and musical tastes.
There may well have such and such components overpriced nine.

I find the price not justified; saw the new price must be tested before purchase.
