    I had a clone with Silicon transistors, it was really cool and could get some really harsh sounds (probably sounds more like the vexter).

      I can't recommend it enough. Believe the hype. It's knocked 3 other fuzzes off my board.

        What do you like about it? What made it better than the other three?

        Do you use it as a straight forward fuzz or for splattery glitch madness?

          I use it as a straightforward fuzz. It's got a unique vocal quality about it. I usually stack fuzz with the Keeley Wah, but the FF already sounds vocal without it.

            It's a great pedal but it does need a bit of tweaking. There is a list out there that's a good place to start. Volume and gain interact a lot with each other so be careful if you find your fuzz too weedy or gainy. I have the vexter and I reckon the green one sounds a bit smoother.

            Great, great pedal and especially awesome in the studio. We just recorded some insane sounds for a spanish rock band. Really the swiss army knife of the fuzz world.

                      sweet! - the FF is a nice little box with so much sounds in it.

                          I got rid of my FF for a fuzz probe but I've fallen out with the probe. I'd happily take another FF if the price was right. Great fuzz, you can get some awesome normal sounds out of it and then of course there are the stupid sounds too.

                            I love mine. I'm no expert on fuzz or even pedals in general, but my Fuzz Factory has been the most fun pedal i've bought.

                            Apart from using it like a normal fuzz its also been useful for recording background textures for tracks by getting the thing to squeal, then adding loads of delay, reverb, whatever.

                            I found one day it was picking up some nutbag religious radio station (i've no idea where from) and so recorded that and used it too. Its kinda weird having tiny voices talking about satan coming out of a pedal

                              What is the difference between the two circuits? (aside from the pad).
