Fulltone - Amazing sound and quality!

The Fulltone '70 hearkens back to day when Fuzz was Fuzz. If you want polite, this isn't for you! Using a pair of intentionally mismatched silicon transistors, this fuzz pedal snarls and spits (the mismatch is all about harmonic content). Setting the Fuzz at "10" opens the doors to tones that will rip the flesh - not for the faint-hearted! Housed in a deep blue 16-gauge steel box, this monster offers more aggressive fuzz than the '69 and includes a mid control for extra clarity. The '70 provides some mean fuzz!

Fulltone '70 at a Glance:
  • Long-lasting pots
  • Who uses Fulltone?

Long-lasting pots
Fulltone's custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary "thru-PCB" method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.

Who uses Fulltone?
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who's who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell.

Fulltone '70 Features:
  • Classic Fuzz tones
  • Mismatched silicon transistors for harmonic content
  • Built to last from top-notch and custom-built components
  • Proprietary PCB board mounting method
  • Aggressive tone
  • Mid control for clarity and cut

Why buy Fulltone?
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone's proprietary "thru-PCB" method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.

70's Fuzz

Like all Fulltone products, the 70's fuzz is incredible. Really works well with Marshalls. I can't speak for Fenders. I also own a vintage Orange amp and it works well with that too. But with my Marshall it is off the charts fuzz heaven. I have owned dozens of fuzz box. Numerous Big Muffs, Fuzz Face, Soul Bender, Tweak Fuzz, etc., etc. and until I got the 70's fuzz I was never totally happy with any of them. Every tone is vintage and classic. Adjusting the volume knob brings out so many classic fuzz tones that totally impress. Fulltone is by far my favorite pedal maker.

Fulltone '70 Fuzz Pedal

I use several Fulltone pedals. They are made in the USA, built like tanks, and have excellent tone. You don't have to spend$300-$400 to get a great sounding pedal. I play a Guild Starfire thru a Mesa 5:50 Express, 2x12 cab with V30's. Other pedals i use are Fulltone Fat Boost, Mxr Carbon Copy. I put the 70's fuzz pedal in my chain and jammed on some Hendrix and Page. It is a great fuzz effect but it is kinda smooth. Great sustain. I was able to add a touch of fuzz using the fuzz and volume dials. The mid sweep will give you brighter or deeper tone depending on where you like it. Very versatile, got a great sound out of it. You can't go wrong for the low price (compared to boutique pedals). I highly recommend this product.

I like it better than the '69

I used to have the '69 fuzz by Fulltone, and while it had awesome tone, it seemed to lack output volume, was hard to get to cut through the mix, and had temperature issues like most germanium fuzzes. The '70 seems to solve all these problems for me. I get the same awesome fuzz face tones but with plenty of volume and even more fuzz than the 69! The mids knob is the real deal, it really helps the pedal jump out more. Also, no temperature issues with the silicon transistors. One other nice feature is that the '70 is not reverse polarity like the other Fulltone fuzz pedals, so i don't have to worry about frying the pedal with the wrong power adapter. The 69 is a warmer, woolier fuzz, while the 70 seems to be sharper and edgier in its attack. Both great fuzzes, but the 70 seems to be the better fuzz face pedal for my tastes.
