AmazingThis pedal sounds amazing. It really nails the Hendrix sound with single coils and it can do a lot more too. I've been getting great live Zeppelin-esque sounds out of it too, more like the classic Les Paul/ Marshall kind of sound, it really blurs the line between fuzz and harmonic tube amp distortion. Per Fuller's suggestion on the literature included in the box, I leave the fuzz knob cranked all the way up, and control the amount of fuzz using the guitar's volume knob, or a volume pedal placed before the fuzz. At slightly lower levels this does a great really rich and aggressive harmonic tube-like distortion that makes me very happy. Turned all the way up it sings with creamy and thick fuzz. On the low strings it really has that fat and gnarly fuzz sound I'm always looking for, that isn't always predictable but always sounds awesome. Great pedal.

The best Fuzzface I've heard in personThis is an amazing fuzzface with real Germanium. Looks military NOS Russian to me, but I cannot verify that. Sounds like Hendrix. There are actually 6 knobs and a true bypass switch. The internal trim, the 4 you see on the front and rolling your guitar back from 10-8 will dynamically change your tone. Only germanium does this. You will NEED to use Carbon Zinc batteries in your fuzz pedal to make this work correctly. Don't worry -- they're the regular old ones. Cheap and easy to find. Don't use Alkaline. Also, your batteries will last a very long time so long as you remember to unplug it after you play. You can get a large variety of classic tones from this pedal but primarily think Hendrix. This pedal is a future classic of a reissued classic.

Fulltone 69 Simply a great pedalGolly Gee wictikers yall, I love this pedal. I have been wondering what has been missing to my sound. I have to admit I like the Jimmy Page sound, and with research found he uses a JMI Tonebender pro Mark II. This pedal is very well made and is a close clone to that pedal, I think. Need some dirt in that clean amp? This pedal will give you distortion, slight fuzz (not overdone), and great sustain. You can controll the gain of the effect with the volume on your guitar. I would highly recomend this pedal. I am very pleased with it.

Germanium. Enough said.I was in the market for a fuzz pedal after trying to craft my own sound. I watched It Might Get Loud and marveled when Jack White used his Electro Harmonix Big Muff Pi and thought that was the sound I was looking for. Well, after reading reviews, listening to lots of fuzz samples, going back and listening to the music I've heard a thousand times, and heeding some good advice from a long-time guitar-playing co-worker about Germanium parts, I decided to give the '69 mkII a try.
You can add a little grit or go to full-on fuzz glory with this unit. Comparing this unit to the Big Muff, it's just a lot smoother, not so out of control but with lots and lots of fuzz. I believe this smoothness is where the Germanium transistors come into play, but I may be wrong. Tone is such a subjective thing after all.
Twist all the knobs to ten and use your guitar's volume control to get where you need to be. I like to use the '69 by itself, with my Boss Octave pedal and then in conjunction with my Radial TriMode and MXR 10 Band EQ.
I can't comment on the '69 mk II through a solid state amp but through a tube amp? Aural ecstasy.
Once you have a good quality fuzz pedal on your board, you'll wonder why you didn't do it a long time ago. The '69 mk II is a great pedal and well worth the price. Pay a little more for Germanium parts. You won't regret it.

Fulltone 69' MKIIHave been looking for a particular fuzz sound....not out of control fuzz but somewhat reserved (not out of control) and musical. This pedal solved that problem....after going through about 10 fuzz boxes over the past 10 years, the Fulltone 69' finally has what I've been looking for. If your looking for way over the top noise fuzz...this ain't it. Retains note definition even on max fuzz setting and great for chords. Great job Fulltone!
