iamqman's review"Harder to find, but worth it!!"

Fulltone '70
Another wonderful pedal from the great people at Fulltone pedals. They did a run a few years back with the inspiration of the classic fuzz boxes from the 60' s and 70's. One being the '69 fuzz box which was based of the germanium transistor chips and this one which is based off of the silicon transistor chips. It is funny how a little chip can create such major differences in tone, feel, and voicing. The '69 and the 70 you would think since being in the same fuzz box family would sound the same. They do have familiar characteristic to one another but the voicing couldn't be further from each other.

This was the original pedal and now have a newer much smaller box. This one is a classic and probably will be harder to find and be worth money some day.

When You hear these two boxes side by side you get an understanding of why a little chip inside could create a whole new tone. I think the '69 has a little bit more of a raspy tone which seems inconsistent with the distortion. What I mean by that is that the fuzz sounds a little more open and out of control.

The 70 has a straight forward tone that is more smooth and distinct. It seems more polished and defined. Not that it is better than the '69, but just a different take on the same idea.

UTILIZATION

This fuzz stompbox has 2 intentionally mismatched silicon transistors allowing for greater harmonic content. This one is for fans of Jimi Hendrix's sound circa "Band of Gypsies."

The level control just adjusts your overall volume. The mids adjust the midrange frequencies, and the fuzz will dial in and out how much distortion you want.

Fulltone '70 Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal Features:

* Growling, fuzzy harmonics via 2 intentionally mismatched silicon transistors
* Powder-blue, 16-gauge chassis
* Controls: Volume, Mids, Fuzz

SOUND QUALITY

I favor this fuzz pedal over the '69 for the more polished tone that it has inside. I like the '69 but it seems like a more out of control sound and I like my distortion to be a little more focused. You could own both and have two kids which one is a little ADD and the other is an honor student.

I like this pedal with a Fender Strat and a Marshall plexi or JMP or another Marshall style amplifier. I think that the two pair well with one another since the majority of the time you heard this type of pedal was going into a Marshall amp. So the tone become a familiar comfort that recreates so many of the sounds that I grew up listening to.

OVERALL OPINION

It really is too bad that this item is discontinued. They do have a reissue model but like everything you always want a first addition.

I would recommend this pedal to anyone wanting to recreate that old Jim tone. They are discontinued so I would pick up a reissue if this is the particular tone you are seeking.

Slowhand's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" The quality Fulltone"

Fulltone '70
Fuzz true-bypass, made in United States by Fulltone
3 knobs
Analog
Silicon

UTILIZATION

Using ultra simple, no need to book. Whatever you have to open the pedals if you want to dial a accder rgler the pedals based on their gear (or its gots)

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is good and hot. Cest say anything specific. Yet I havent specially fell in the heart. Jai OECD in the same brand that satisfies me and Fulldrive 2 is powerful. The Fulltone 70 may be lack of prsence DEFINITIONS and I got, even if a cest trs good pedals.

OVERALL OPINION

For résumé, jai AIM pedals but this I hastened to sell it. This does not my empch to repeat the test once a deuxime why not try again and again. Jaime this brand, but I havent laccroche pedals for that. For someone who seeks 70s vintage fuzz sound very fat and warm, I'd recommend the Dunlop Fuzz Face plutt (red or blue) Despite criticism of laspect commercial, I find that c is a great pedals and is priced infrieur. For fans of modern fuzz, I'd recommend the Zvex Fuzz Factory plutt, but it is also ... CHRE

Serial riffer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fulltone '70
- What are the effects or types of effects available?

Well, it's an exellent FUZZ of invoice, with a broad palette of sounds ranging from exellent boost fons of the vintage modern fuzzy Fulltone ... if you put all donf, has become the l 'Apocalypse ...

- What technology is used? (Analog, numrique, lamp ...)

Analog, super cabalage, transos silicone ... true bypass. THE beautiful and clean the indoor ... really great! Again there is a rglage suplmentaire rgler to the scope of the volume knob on my part ... I put it back for a maximum of dynamics ... the fuzz 70 charms me less if I do not feel the potato obtained by tapping the trimmer bottom.

UTILIZATION

- The configuration gnrale Is it easy?

Could not be more simple ... rglages the usual volume & gain a Low-Hi cut with a lot of influence on the grain and a DC 9V power supply.

- The edition of sounds and effects is it easy?

PDAL simple and robust, not fancy, but it inspires confidence, and you will soon feel "at home" in a few turns of knobs ...

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

As usual ... it is a sheet ... and me is enough.

SOUND QUALITY

- Effects are they effective, suitable and adequate ralistes?

It's a fuzz in its relatively straight, I find it quite easy and rgler matriser. It tends to make me play with less gain, because its dynamics is very standard. It inspires play blues rock, little prs is a bit of Black Crowes sound.

- Which instruments do you use?

Les paul and Soldano Hot Rod 50 + XL

- What are those you prfrez, you dtest?

I really like the pedals, but it charms me less when the house is not rglage bottom. Besides, I suggest that the eventual intrss try in store and find that the dull, not to ask the seller hsiter of AOpen and put the knob internal donf. .. a really changes everything!

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

A Time ...

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?

Sound, robust ... THE LOOK ... mine is purple ... which is not without recalling the universe hendrixien o)
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

I had the soulbender ... that despite having more gain, however, is softer than 70 ... in fact the 70 seems to me even more modern than soulbender. The soulbender intrssante is because you can play with the interactions RULES obtained when the gain and tone ... the 70 'on the other hand is more reactive when you move the volume knob ...

But if they are close enough but 70'a eventually became my favorite!

- How do you report qualitprix?

Again ... it Fulltone ... the price diffrence I find it perfectly justified when I take the pleasure to engage the standard pedals!

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...

YEAP!
