Great sound, shame about the practicality – that’s the Fuzz Face to a tee. So, Dunlop has transplanted its reissue BC-108-loaded Fuzz Face circuitry into a more user-friendly setting – a box that will slot comfortably onto a pedalboard with easy battery access, mains adaptor operation and an LED.
Tonally, it’s pretty much the same as the Jimi Hendrix model but with a touch more gain. The Buffer switch is there to eliminate audible oscillation caused when some wahs are placed in front of a Fuzz Face, but also adds brightness should you want it. A Fuzz Face brought right up to date. Excellent.
PROS: Sorts out the impracticalities of a Fuzz Face.
CONS: We'd like it more if it cost less.
