MK-III and MORE- Perfection!
This is THE ultimate fuzz pedal. Admittedly, I am not an expert on fuzzes, but this one is supposed to be like an MK-III type, I guess. It has ridiculous sustain, and crazy fuzz sounds. Once I plugged it in, I couldn't stop playing it for several hours. Infinitely tweak-able, it has the full range of fuzz sounds with the reliability and smoothness of the OCD. Just really ridiculously well made-reminds me of my Soldano for quality level-made in the USA.
Works great with a battery. Thankfully, it has built-in "polarity protection," so if you plug in the wrong adapter, it just won't work and won't fry itself like regular fuzzes with reverse polarity would. The reverse polarity adapters DO NOT WORK, and won't work in the same power line, either- they will hum loudly. My only minor issue is that the FPS power adapter should be included. Anyone selling this product should make it clear that without the FPS, this thing won't plug in with anything else (although the manual says Voodoo labs is ok). Small issue to resolve for another 25 bucks, which makes it a $185 pedal that is STILL worth it. My second Fulltone pedal, and surely won't be my last- the OCD blew me away, too! Love the high level of service at Sweetwater, and if I had taken a moment to chat with my service person, he no doubt would have told me about the minor power adapter issue. I like that the staff are musicians, and I'll be back in the future.
