Founded in 1991 by LA based musician Michael Fuller, Fulltone are on a mission to design & build the highest quality guitar FX pedals on the planet. These pedals are all hand made & hand wired - often using components that Michael makes himself because the "off the shelf" ones just aren't good enough for him. We haven't seen or heard a bad review about a Fulltone Pedal - when you read the user reviews on Harmony Central, every pedal gets a rave response - and if you look at the user list on the Fulltone web site you'll find some of the worlds greatest guitar players have been using Fulltone for years. Another hot topic with pedals is "True Bypass Switching". All Fulltone pedals feature "True By Pass" switching - that means that when the pedal is switched off there is absolutely zero signal loss or interference from the pedal - it's like the pedal isn't even there! Whilst many manufacturers claim to have true by pass switching, this is not always the case. Try your pedals out & see how different your amp sounds when you remove the pedal from the chain. The better your guitar & amp are, the more you'll hear the difference. And to top it all, Fulltone pedals come with a 5 year warranty.
Ever played an original FuzzFace from around 1970? (HINT: Not AT ALL the same sound as ones with the same namesake being mass-produced currently.) Ours has two intentionally mismatched (for harmonic content) silicon transistors that snarl and spit... not for the meek! If you put the "Fuzz" on 10 you will rip, and you might get all sorts of oscillation and weirdness... but that's Rock. Don't try using it with a wah wah... you can't, and neither could Jimi, without it screaming and howling. You want polite and quiet? Go elsewhere. You want art in a box? Come on in.
Housed in a 16 gauge steel box and powder coated deep blue, this pedal is a bit unruly but with some warmth... ideal for older 4 input Marshall amps, it has much more FUZZ than the '69 Pedal and includes a Mid control for extra clarity and cut.
I got my hands on Eric Johnson's Blue Fuzzface that he used from Tones through Ah Via Musicom period (now owned by Ian Moore) and incorporated a few of its tonal secrets into the '70 pedal with staggering sonic results!
