Fuzz made for Humbuckers!!!
I have been a fuzz fan forever! Listening to some of my favorite players makes want more fuzz..(Jimmy Page, Joe Bonamassa, Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Duane Allman). I use a Gibson SG and hopefully soon will get a Les Paul. I've used Silicon equipped fuzz pedal with my SG and it sounds great! BUT it can get a little TOO muddy (Silicon transistors are more edgy and louder than GERMANIUM)! And it really does not sound all that good with muddy tone. Then I finally was able to try Germanium equipped fuzz pedals and WOW! Cream goodness with that vintage tone of a classic 60s fuzz. Now where the humbuckers come into play...the germanium transistors work VERY WELL with humbuckers. I doesn't get to harsh even when you CRANK EVERYTHING UP!! Now the only down side which i will mention is that GERMANIUM FUZZ FACES OR ANY GERMANIUM EQUIPPED FUZZ PEDALS CHANGE THROUGH TEMPERATURE CHANGES! Now thats not a BAD thing...what changes (at least through my ear) is that when is cold or air conditioned room, the fuzz is probably at its best sound, not too trebley and not too bassy...when its hot weather for an outside gig, the tone can get slightly bassy...but through your EQ section of your amp you can fix that.
LAST THING: YOUVE BEEN WARNED!!
THIS HAS NO LED AND NO 9V ADAPTER!! TOTALLY VINTAGED OUT PEDAL WITH THE JOY OF TRUE BYPASS! ALL BATTERY POWERED!!!
ALL IN ALL: I'd recommend this pedal to any musician who prefers humbuckers! (You still can use it with strats/single coils but thats what the jimi hendrix fuzz face is for)
