Features

#1. Has a Classic Jimi Hendrix Sound

If you know anything about this famed guitarist, you are likely aware of some of his biggest concerts. This pedal is reminiscent of these performances with a really smooth sound that is also quite powerful.

The fuzz face pedal he was said to use is what this one sets out to be, and there’s a lot of time and manpower that has been put into reaching this goal.

#2. Two Dials To Use

There are two dials to control, which change up the sound drastically. They are white and easy to see, since they don’t just blend in with the rest of the unit.

The dials are set to control volume and fuzz, which work together to create a few different fuzz effects that you may be interested in. They are classic fuzz face sounds.

#3. LED light

There is an LED that tells you when the machine is on. This can help out immensely when you need to know if this one is working correctly or if you don’t remember if you turned it on or not.

Furthermore it will help you be aware that your connections are properly hooked up to it.

#4. Strong Housing and Cool Paint Job

This one offers a lot of sound in a small machine. It is round and rather small at around 4 inches, but you won’t notice that when you’re using it.

The housing that it is built into is very strong, so it won’t wear out when you have to kick the power on and off while you’re using it. It is painted red and black, like a lady bug, so that feature is attractive as well.

It definitely won’t take up much room in your pedal box, if you have other items that you generally play with.

#5. Can Get Very Loud

Not only can this device get very loud, but when you use it with other additional pedals it can get even louder. This shouldn’t cause any problem though, and it shouldn’t add any noise to the music that you don’t want to be there.

Just make sure that you adjust all the volumes properly, to minimize any extra noises or feedbacks. This one packs a lot in a small box, so it doesn’t need to be all the way up to be enjoyed.

  • Easy to use
  • Classic fuzz sound
  • Helps you mimic the greats
  • Tone may be harsh to some

Who Is It Best For?

There is an issue where the tone may be harsh with some amps, but that is probably just a volume issue. If you turn the pedal down and turn the amp up, there shouldn’t be any more harshness.

You can also try turning the volume down on both things, to see what works before. This gadget gets very loud without messing with its volume, so it should have a good sound no matter what decibel level.
