Ever played an original FuzzFace from around 1970? They're cool. I have a few, so I know we NAILED IT with the '70. Ours has two intentionally mismatched (for harmonic content) BC108 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.
