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.
