      I love that you used "adorable" to describe a pedal... still a TVD fanboi!!

      This. Dunlop has been getting things right lately.

      Stu, what amp are you running? I tend to prefer germanium through Fenders and Voxes, and silicon through Marshalls, but that changes depending on my mood. Germanium tends to be smoother and more overdrivey, whilst silicon can be more agressive and spitty.

       

      If the fuzz doesn't clean up when you back off the volume, then the builder is doing it wrong. This goes for both Ge and Si versions.

          I have played it. The builder lives near me, he's a friend of mine.

          There's a silicon or germanium version.

            I have a Mosterpiece NPN as my silicon FF and an EQD Dream Crusher for germanium. Both are amazing pedals.

              I've got a DingoTone GHF on the way, and I'm pretty stoked. No experience with it, but their Classic 70s Fuzz is a handbuilt Si fuzz for ~$75 shipped. Which is pretty f'n good.

              yea the fuzz face minis look cool.

               

              personally i would get a Wilson effects Stoned Grasshopper, but the original graphics version. it looks so nice and sounds so nice plus gives you a nice Tubescreamer type drive AND a clean boost that i think has a buffer/line driver in it.

               

              the new wilson graphics for the grasshopper are flat out hideous compared to the original simplistic sparkly cummy awesome grasshopper one. one of my favorite designs ever, and super neat pedal.

            Try the Mojo Hand FX Crosstown. It's my favorite FF type pedal to date. It's a hybrid, and has some useful additions to the original FF circuit that make it a lot more flexible IMO.

                I do regret getting rid of my Fuzz Factory... maybe again soon?

                Thanks Phil, I was looking at this and the extra tweakability is a draw for sure. Do you have any experience with the BYOC ESV fuzz or the Jam Pedals Fuzz Phrase? These two are also peaking my interest.

                My vote goes towards the Analogman Sun Face. It truly is an awesome fuzz face!
