Vintage circuitry with modern modifications

When the earliest Fuzz Faces were introduced to the guitar world, their circuitries were well known for the germanium transistors that contributed to a warm, vintage fuzz tone that was popularized by guitar legends such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour. Silicon transistors were used in the later editions of the pedal, but they provided a harsher sound. The Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini allows you to capture that classic germanium fuzz tone.

Pedalboard-friendly housing

One of the inconveniences of incorporating a traditional Fuzz Face pedal in a pedalboard is its unusually large housing size. On many occasions, guitarists and bassists would have to sacrifice one or more pedals that they love in order to insert a Fuzz Face in the signal chain. With this improved, pedalboard-friendly housing design, size is no longer an issue.

Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal Features:
  • Circuitry based on mid-'60s Fuzz Faces with slightly mismatched germanium transistors
  • Legendary Fuzz Face tones in a pedalboard-friendly housing
  • Status LED, AC power jack, and battery door
Classic germanium fuzz tone in a smaller box, you can't go wrong with the Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal!

Just Right

Its just what I needed and wanted for my rig, a great big hairy sound that responds extremely well to backing off volume or pic, or to digging in hard. Seems to be extremely solid in construction with a very smooth feel to the controls. I like to just crank it up!

2 in 1

When you want the fuzziest fuzz and the cleanest fuzz ( -vol. knob ), this is the one to pick. It's like Wolfmother plus Eric Johnson.

Exceptional Value and brilliant tone

Really needed a fuzz this year. I had the Bonamassa fuzz earlier this year, but was not high gain enough. This germanium mini fuzz really did it for me - running it through a Fender DRRI. Yes, they can be a challenge to dial in. You have to work the amp's volume/treb/bass and the tone controls of your guitar to get the fuzz sound you are seeking. Once I did that, I achieved some brilliant tones, from Hendrix to Bill Gibbons. Yes, it can work with humbuckers, but will take some more tweaking to ensure it doesn't get to mid-rangy or lost in a band mix. With a strat, it's a dream combination. Cleans up very well with guitar's volume knob, with some color to the clean tone that adds a little something to the tone.For the price and the pedal board space, this is a no-brainer. I am exceptionally pleased with this pedal and Sweetwater's customer service. Great value. Dunlop really delivered with this little wonder.

Just got it

Ok, just got it. Plugged it into my marshall 80's JMC800 on the crunch channel. (Gain - 2, Vol -7, trb mid bass - 6, master - 7) using my Les Paul. Set the pedal @ Vol - 2:00, Fuzz - 2:00. IT RIPS!!!....... The control over the Volume is to die for, I set the GTR vol@ 5 and got a very warm crunch with hard strumming. But let up on the strings and it gets Big clean tones... Very expressive!! Turn the vol up and hold on!! This is what I've been lookin for, to get all those classic tones, and to put me in the Bonamassa vibe!!!.... Can't wait to plug in the Strat and tele!... Big sound in a little space... Get this one!!
