Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Reviews4.6/5.0 based on 4 customer reviews
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.

Fantastic FuzzFavorite 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 of 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!

Primative, but Awesome!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 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!

Fuzzy LogicThis 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 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!
