Pedalboard-friendly Housing for the Same Legendary Tone!

The Dunlop Silicon Fuzz Face Mini distortion pedal features the same legendary fuzz face tone in a much more compact size. Based on a 1970 Fuzz Face with BC108 silicon transistors, it allows you to achieve a bright and aggressive fuzz tone. The Silicon Fuzz Face also includes true bypass switching and a bright status LED. If you're looking for that vintage fuzz tone, the Dunlop Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal is the right choice for you.

Vintage circuitry with modern modifications

When the earliest units of Fuzz Faces were introduced to the guitar world, their circuitries were lauded for the germanium transistors that contributed to a warm vintage tone. However, silicon was later used as the transistor, and it provided a brighter and sharper high end. While faithfully incorporating the same specification of the 1970 Silicon Fuzz Face, you can capture this classic silicon fuzz tone with this pedal.

Pedalboard-friendly housing

One of the inconveniences of incorporating a traditional Fuzz Face pedal in a pedalboard is its unusually large housing size. In many situations, 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 Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Features:
  • Circuitry based on a 1970 Fuzz Face with its matched BC108 silicon transistors
  • Legendary Fuzz Face tones in a pedalboard-friendly housing
  • Status LED, AC power jack & battery door
Generate a great fuzzy vibe with the Dunlop Silicon Fuzz Face Mini!

firebreather !

whenever i acquire a new stomp box the tonal colours inevitably inspire to write something new. its amazing how technology a generation later could miniaturize this classic. i do value the ability to keep the ff cranked and massage the level of grit with the guitar volume.i bought it primarily to use with strats but when i plugged my epi proplus paul in last night...more pleasant surprises. also...i realized you can use the fuzz control as a tonal pot. moved to the left it will take the highs out...moved to the right the brightness increases with its off the wall flame throwing ability. a rugged little monster by any accounting with that classic silicon blaze.

Amazing - Haven't been this excited over an effect in a long time

The silicon Fuzz Face Mini is worth every penny. I put it through its paces for four hours last night with my Pink Floyd tribute act "A Few More Bricks". Authentic Gilmour pre-Animals tone. Roll the volume pot on my guitar half way and I get a pleasant crunch. Roll the volume down more and it is clean with slight breakup. Roll the volume to "11" and get searing, "hairy" fuzz. Love it!

Has a wonderful sound! Its super close to David Gilmour's fuzz on the solo for Time from Dark Side of the Moon. Strongly recommend giving this pedal a try.

Not Nice Noise!

I dunno about Pink Floyd, but I hit this little blue stomper when I need that nasty snarl ala The Cramps. Passes for a '60's box o' noise without the price tag that usually comes with those or boutique pedals - even the ones I make! Highly recommended for loads o' fun!

I got radio interference. Bad hum. Didn't much care for the tones. Not all of headroom. Bought a Bass big muff instead. Much better tones
