    This is the sound!

    We do a lot of Rolling Stones songs in our band and I was looking for "that" sound for "that" song. By tweaking the input gain structure, adjusting the Satisfaction pedal's two simple knobs, and adding the right amount of reverb...got "that" sound. This pedal was the key.

    Great sound Fuzz

    I own 5 Fuzz boxes, but this one is the one I've been looking for. If you want the 60's - 70's fuzz tone this one will fill the bill. Buy it you'll like it.

    Plenty of SATISFACTION!

    Just tried out my new E-H fuzz. Has great sound! The attack and volume controls give it great flexibility.

    Satisfied with Satisfaction

    This is a very harsh splattery fuzz/treble booster. Not a lot of sustain or low end and not as versatile as a muff pi or fuzzface. It is purely for fuzz enthusiasts.
    Younger musicians looking for an entry level dirt box will probably be disappointed. IMO this would be best suited for Stoner, grunge or KBD style punk.

    Authentic Early Fuzz Tone

    It's easy to tell from the demo video that this nails the Keef tone and other mid 60's - early 70's fuzz sounds. I even got a convincing "Cherub rock" vibe . Rolling back on the guitar volume yielded a sound I may use for special effect on a portion of a song or an overdub, but to my ears was not as musical as my OCD or Catalinbread Manx Loagthan .

    It may have a narrower range of usable sounds than other pedals, but when you need a vulgar unapologetic fuzz this does the trick and at a surprisingly low price.

    I am Satisfied !

    It's Okay

    Sounds okay. Just learning how to use it, haven't been able to duplicate the fuzz as in the namesake fuzz riff. Sounds a bit tinny.

    satisfaction? some

    I am just into fuzz for some reason lately. I'm trying everything, so the Satisfaction was on the list. It is great for the perfect "Satisfaction" song emulation, and a decent variety of fuzzies, but not quite as versatile as I had hoped. So far the Germaniums are doing it better for me. I'm also trying out a seymour duncan, and a few others soon. Not sure what I'll settle on. I do like this pedal enough to keep it, but if I can match it's Rolling Stone fuzz on a more versatile, more option based pedal, I will most likely have something else on my pedal board soon (I'm guessing a Pollinator, or a Fulltone. It is fun trying them all!! I recommend it highly. The Satisfaction is great at hard fuzz and has some decent variety options, and tone control roll in and outs, I'm just not completely warm and fuzzy with it like I wish to be!

    Noise city!

    This is truly the noisiest pedal I have experienced. I did not know my Mesa 5:50 could produce this much background noise despite powering this pedal with a Pedal Power and with line isolation gear. Hard to hear the guitar over the background noise that gets louder with an increase in the attack knob. Way to noisy for my taste.

    Maybe I got a dud. Maybe the pedal design is a dud. I don't know which, but this is a noisy little sucker in my pedal chain and is even noisy on true bypass when connected Guitar -- Satisfaction -- Amp. The tone possibilities aren't as great as with other pedals either. Overall, more trouble than reward with this one.
