Overview

Over the course of '69-'70, Jimi Hendrix appeared at a few of his most noted live appearances - Live at Woodstock, Live at Berkeley, and Live at the Fillmore East - using a mysterious red Fuzz Face Distortion with white knobs. That fuzz box sounded like a completely different animal from any of the other Fuzz Face pedals in Jimi's arsenal, snarling with a far more aggressive, biting tone.

The pedal itself has been lost to history, but its unmistakably unique tone lives on in the recordings of those three iconic shows, and Hendrix aficionados have tried to cop that sound for years. We are happy to say that their tonal quest can finally come to a glorious end.

Poring tirelessly over all of the different customized circuit designs Jimi used over the years, Dunlop's engineers narrowed down this elusive fuzz tone to a version of the Octavio circuit that didn't have the octave up signal. After making a few tweaks, they nailed it.

Now, you can get the same Fuzz Face tone Jimi used to woo the masses at some of his most famous performances. It comes in a pedal board-friendly Fuzz Face Mini housing, complete with an AC power jack and an on/off status LED.

Features
  • Capture Jimi's elusive live sound from Woodstock, Berkeley and Fillmore East
  • Based on Octavio circuit without octave up signal
  • Pedalboard-friendly size
  • On/off status LED

    Comments about Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I'm a 3-5 day a week gigging musician and I also own a commercial recording studio, so it's easy to say that I know good gear when I hear it. This Fuzz Face easily holds its head high among the best of the best. It outed my vintage Dallas Arbiter on tone, and destroyed all the other Fuzz Faces in my collection for being able to remain versatile on different guitars and amps and still sound INCREDIBLE on all of them! Not easy to do - most FF's are finicky or have sweet spots. This one has boatloads of sweet spots and will respond musically and magically to every pick, strum, and volume change. Buy this thing - you wont regret it!

    This is a great product! In my opinion this is a perfect pedal to use in combination with a fender guitar going through a nice clean channel amp for best results.

    Comments about Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Guitar Effects Pedal:

    I tend to be unimpressed with fuzz pedals but this one I really enjoy. The dynamic responsiveness of this pedal is very amp-like, allowing your playing to work in conjunction with the on-board settings to dictate the amount of fuzz you conjure.

    Gear-wise, this is very friendly with all pickup types. I use triple shot mounting rings in all my guitars, giving me humbucker, single coil, p90 and blade pickups to choose from and the BoG FuzzFace creates a uniquely-voiced fuzz tone with each pickup type. As far as I can tell, this fuzz will create great tones out of any passive pickup type. Highly recommended!

        This pedal seems to capture that elusive late period live Hendrix sound. However, it's a super cool fuzz and works well for just about any application where you want a fuzzed out sound. Love the small pedalboard friendly size too. Best pedal I've bought in a while!

          This pedal really impressed me. I've tried out tons of fuzz pedals, but with the right amp and style, this one takes the gold. I play with a strat, this fuzz, vox wah, and univibe on a marshall dsl, and this fuzz really tops off that hendrix tone!

            Comments about Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Guitar Effects Pedal:

            I never really was a big fuzz guy nor one to buy any effects that claimed to be "Hendrix Signature" or be the next step to getting a Hendrix-like sound, but I am glad I made an exception for this pedal. Although it takes some work to coax them out, there are a lot of great sounds and tones lurking in the fuzz face past the advertised later-Hendrix fuzz tone and several sweet spots where the pedal is just wonderfully responsive. I would definitely recommend having an amp with a bit of warm distortion already going, ideally from driven tubes, when you kick on this pedal, the fuzz is a bit snarly which can get oppressively trebly if you aren't careful. Overall this is a great pedal though if you are looking for a very musical and dynamic fuzz or if you really just want that later-Hendrix sound.

              Comments about Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Guitar Effects Pedal:

              The FFM6 really does have the sound characteristics of Jimi's custom Fuzz. Add a Wah pedal and it sounds like Jimi's recordings. The guitar pickup selection and volume knob can control much of the tone and Distortion level with out adjusting the FFM6 knobs, going from thin and bright to fat and gritty. very well constructed. fun to play with.

              Comments about Dunlop Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Guitar Effects Pedal:

              Great fuzz face pedal. I own the regular sized Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face and this one is every bit as good. Smaller footprint on the pedal board and interacts better with my wah pedal than the reguar Jimi Hendrix fuzz face pedal. Good, solid construction. The volume and fuzz controls are very interactive and the pedal itself is very interactive to the guitars volume and tone controls.
