Not the best out there

By 

from Mooresville, IN

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

The Dunlop fuzz is a decent pedal. It's not the best and its not the worst. It creates a nice fuzzy sound when playing lower notes. And when playing chords it sounds excellent. I have a couple problems with mine. First is a mechanical error. When switching from fuzz to clean it sometimes produces no sound at all when I hit the switch....which makes this pedal a no-go for live shows. Secondly, this pedal, at least with my setup, has so little sustain. There is no way to crank out a solo unless you run another gain pedal in front of it. The notes just drown out after a couple seconds. Also, picking low to high notes, you won't even hear the high notes....if your looking for a fuzz pedal, do your research. There are better ones out there that cost more, but are worth it.

Good For What It Is...

By 

from Oklahoma City, OK

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

So, if you are trying to nail early Hendrix type tones, like woofy, and amp is blowing up sounding stuff, it does that well. It does not get close to later Hendrix tones, but neither does any Dunlop Fuzz... You have to go Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz for any thing at or later than Bold As Love... just talking example tones though. has great characteristic clean up from your guitars volume control (it never gets completely clean though but whatevs) it doesn't have loads of sustain, but still a good amount. more like overdrive sustain with the sound of woofy distortion. definitely not in the same family as a ZVex Fuzz Factory... it was originally designed to simulate Speaker Breakup type distortion, not tube distortion, and this is exactly what it sounds like...

Just Like Pompeii

By 

from Phx, AZ

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

If you've seen Pink Floyd Live at Pompeii, you've witnessed the awesomeness of this pedal. My idols, Hendrix and Gilmour,used this pedal to achieve their signature tone. This device couldn't be easier, plug it in, mess with the knobs a little, then jam out. With this, a nice stratocaster, and a good amp, you're one step closer to the best.

The buzz about the Fuzz

By 

from Michigan

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

The Fuzz Face is a large pedal. The sheer size of it takes you back to its 60's roots. One thing to be sure, this pedal will not get kicked over on its side or fold under pressure. THe all metal housing and low center of gravity make it more like a tank than a traditional pedal. I like the primative sound that the Fuzz face pedal puts out, however with its current setup, Marshall MG 50, the effect know needs to be turned in the 50%-75% position to get any of the desired effect. Battery location and cahanging is a bit of a pain since you need to unscrew the bottow to get to it, and no option for an auzillary power supply does keep this pedal "true" to its vintage heritage. The sound that the FF puts out is a timewarp to the summer of love. Jimi picked a winner when he chose this pedal. This is a great edition to your pedal collection. You'll find yourself wanting to play every song you know with the new sound and become inspired to learn more or create your own.

Fuzzin' It Up

By 

from Phoenix, AZ

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

This fuzz pedal is great for just about anything you put to it. I play blues and classic rock and occasionally older metal but this red ufo fits the bill no matter what you through at it. I play it through a Marshall and a Fender tube amp with multiple Les Pauls and you can get from jazzy warmth (generally with the FUZZ lower) or crank up some metal (with both knobs on "11") and it still mantains the basic tone of your amp. The price is great, the quality is top notch and the features are really all you need! The only slight problems I've encountered are 1; to change the battery you have to remove the whole back-plate with a screw and 2; the Input and Output's are switched from modern pedals. But minor adjustment aids these difficulties and I still wouldn't buy anything else. Great pedal!

FUZZ FACE MASTER

By 

from Los Angeles

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

no just kidding, but i did buy 2 of them. if you like jimi hendrix's sound or even a recent band like the white stripes youll love this pedal. as far as the sound being like the original i dont know. some misinformed people have said that now the fuzz faces are made with new harsh sounding silcon transistors. instead of the smoother sounding original germananium transistors. take it from me, the fuzz face is made with nkt275 germananium trannys. they even have a big G printed on them. and i confirmed this with a electronic supply that nkt275 tranny is a germananium tranny. i also switched out the nkt275 trannys with some other germ.trannys and the sound was simular. complaints : 1)the in/out inputs are backwards. all modern pedals input on right and output on the left. a 5 minute fix 2)youll need to buy their ac adapter that goes on the battery connector. or use batteries. love this pedal!!! also check out guitargeek.com they have an easy face pedal you can build. very simple

Fuzz!!!

By 

from San Diego California

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is the fuzz pedal Hendrix used throughout his career. Mention this pedal to any rabid fuzz nut and you hear a flurry of cryptic part numbers like AC-128s, BC 108 and 109s, BC-183Ls, and NKT-275s. Two hours later you?ve just endured a longwinded lecture on all the different Germanium PNP and Silicon Transistors used in the various Fuzz Faces. While there is much debate over which model is the best, most experts agree on that the Germanium NKT-275 Model sounds the sweetest. Thats said, the Fuzz Face is that recognizable bassy to mid-toned fuzz. It?s warm and wooly with just enough edge to make full grown amps melt. These things literally sing and that ablity to sing is what has made this particular model the Holy Grail of all fuzz boxes. Prices on the used market are in the ridiculous range so most gearheads buy the Dunlop Re-issue, and modify them to original specs.

Don't waste your cash on this one.

By 

from Upstate NY

Comments about Dunlop Fuzz Face Guitar Effects Pedal:

The unit I had was quite simply one of the most awful sounding things I have ever heard. The quality control is terrible on these things, and the components are not what they should be. Yet it costs a pretty penny. Uggh. Try the Aramat or maybe the Fulltone '69, even if it costs a bit more.
