Get a Big Piece of Jimi's Fuzz Tone!The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face is a faithful recreation of the fuzz pedal the guitar legend used to launch an incredible array of revolutionary sounds, styles, and songs. Dunlop went through several vintage Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face units, picking a select few and closely examining them for accurate reproduction. As a result, this Jimmy Hendrix Fuzz Face stays true to the best of the originals, including a handwired circuit board, original-style circular housing and knobs with a turquoise hammertone finish. Now you can get a piece of legendary tone-shaping power with the Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face!
Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face at a Glance:
The Hendrix tone
Jimi Hendrix was able to mold his guitar tones into incredible sonic textures and shapes, using only a few effects in addition to his cranked-up amp and guitar. In the process, he created an iconic sound that still makes jaws drop nearly 40 years later. When dedicated guitar effects became available in the 1960s, Hendrix was one of the very first artists to embrace them as soundshaping tools, rather than gimmicky afterthoughts tacked on to a dry guitar tone. Many of his legendary solos and sonic journeys took advantage of effects such as the Crybaby wah, UniVibe chorus/vibrato, Octavio octave doubler, and, of course, the incomparable Fuzz Face distortion.
An authentic reproduction
Unlike most guitarists of his day who were content to simply amplify the sound of their instruments, Hendrix actively sought out new tools to turn his guitar tones into malleable shapes that could range from chiming bells to roaring beasts to otherworldly sheets of sound. Distortion was a big part of his arsenal, and the Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face gave him the firepower. The Hendrix Fuzz Face is built around the toneful BC108 silicon transistor. It is authentic in every detail - a handwired brown circuit board with no solder mask and circuitry carefully matched to the original specs. The look is 100% accurate too - that groovy circular chassis with tooled clones of the original Fuzz Face knobs in the rare and vintage turquoise hammertone finish.

by Tom from Ormond Beach, FL USAFavorite dirt box! I own a pile of pedals and this one is just too much fun to play. It probably can't serve as your only drive device as it does one thing LOUD distorted fuzz. I have owned a bunch o... read more [+]f fuzz boxes and all do not work in a live setting as they disappear in the mix. This one is more focused and tighter than most fuzzes, probably from the silicon clipping diodes. It stands out in the mix of a full band! I tested it through a 59 Bassman reissue with a strat that has Bare Knuckle Apaches, sounds amazing. Then I plugged in an LP with 59 Classic humbuckers. The sound was a little thicker, still tight and focused but still fuzz. I wanted to see how it would react through a high gain amp so I plugged the Strat into an Orange. It now was what I expected from a Fuzz as it obliterated the signal( in a musical way)but was not tight or focused. The pedal reacts so different in front of different amps. I waited over a month to review it so the honeymoon would wear off and I still look forward to plugging this pedal in. Simple, Big, Loud and pleasing to the ear! close [-]

Primative, but Awesome!
by J. Troy from Fort Wayne, In.Let me start by saying that I love this pedal because I love the sound of Jimi Hendrix, If you like his sound then get this pedal. The pedal is however, primative. No indicator light, no dc input, no ... read more [+]frills, just great Jimi Fuzz. I solved the dc input problem using a One Spot and a dremel tool to make a hole to run the wire through, and as far as the light, well I like to think I know what's going on on my pedal board. If you're looking for a multipurpose drive or distortion with multiple tones, keep looking. The pedal is also rather large compared to other stomp boxes, and surprisingly so for the small amount of simple electrical components. It may sound like I'm just pointing out negatives, but if you want a nostalgia inducing sound and feel like I do, add this to your board, tweak it, and rock on! close [-]

by Deve fromThis is great sounding unit. I owned the original, purchased new in the 60's and this is it. Is it worth $170? No. I can build it for less than $20 including an enclosure, and in fact I did. The ... read more [+]BC108 transistor sells for only 40 cents each so it isn't special. Can I make it look this cool? No. So if you want this sound and to look cool too then buy it. Now if you can really play like Jimi, that would indeed be something to behold! close [-]

This pedal isn't just for guitar players. A customer of mine recently wrote, "I am giddy about the FuzzFace pedal. I had read that Keith Emerson used a FuzzFace with his B-3. I hooked it up to my XK-2 and set the drawbars to his classic setting, and it sounds AMAZING.
