Ever played that legendary original fuzz from around 1970. If so, you know it's not the same sound as ones with the same namesake being mass-produced currently. The Fulltone 70-BC has two intentionally mismatched (for harmonic content) silicon transistors that snarl and spit-not for the meek. Don't try using it with a wah wah-you can't, and neither could Jimi, without it screaming and howling. Sorry, you'll have to go elsewhere. You want art in a box. Come on in! Housed in a 16-gauge steel box and powdercoated Deep Blue, the 70-BC pedal is a bit unruly but with some warmth, ideal for older, four-input Marshall amps, it has much more fuzz than the '69 Pedal and includes a Mid control for extra clarity and cut.

Otto Correct 5.0 out of 5 stars I wanted a silicon Fuzz Face type fuzz for big, monstrous Fu Manchu tones out of my Les Paul, and this pedal absolutely delivered on that.

Basically its a silicon Fuzz Face with mismatched transistors (makes it richer and nastier at full blast), but has the added benifit of the volume knob actually being able to exceed the guitars output (a complaint I've had with other FF's, which, at best, can usually only match the volume of your instrument if both the volume and fuzz knobs are dimed), and a mids control to shape the middle frequencies enough for your guitar to cut through the mix. This gives this pedal TONS more tonal range than your traditional FF, and cleans up like a dream with the guitars volume knob. I get massive thick stoner fuzz to creamy Hendrix fuzz to mild overdrive to sparkling clean just with different turns on the pedals fuzz knob and my guitars volume control. There is also an internal trim pot that will further compress or open up the fuzz depending on how you turn it, but I haven't touched the one on mine yet, I'm very happy with how it sounds as is, though I may tinker later, who knows. Add in the rock solid construction, the fact that its made in the USA with very strict quality control, and the very small footprint (its slightly narrower than a Boss pedal) and you have a GREAT deal for the asking price. Seriously, the Hendrix FF is (at the time of this writing) thirty bones more than this pedal, the Mini Hendrix FF is the same price as this one, and neither of them have the bonus features mentioned above. Why do people even bother with the Dunlop FF's? Bottom line: Seriously very VERY impressed. If you're in the market for a silicon FF, give this one a try!I set the amp to a clean sound as my starting point. Chords sound like chunky concrete blocks of tone, and I felt like I could practically stand on the sounds coming out of the thing. Slightly rolling back the volume on the guitar generates a very nice, clean sound, with lots of sparkle and chime, with just a little grit.

This fuzz seemed a bit more responsive to guitar volume knob adjustments than other fuzzes I've played (including Dunlop's JDF2 Fuzzface). The JDF2 Fuzz Face uses germanium transistors, whereas the 70's Fuzz uses silicone, so maybe that's the difference. Don't get me wrong, I like Adele, and think she has a great voice, but I wasn't planning on hearing her at that moment. (I've heard that fuzz pedals can be problematic in picking up radio stations). TAKE 2: I added the 70's Fuzz to my chain of pedals. With a mildly overdriven setting on the OCD, the 70s Fuzz (with the settings as earlier) added a searing lead tone that would sustain for days, even with the single-coil pickups on the Strat. Add some delay to the above, and playing solos all day long won't get boring. I think the best part of the 70's fuzz though is that all by itself, it is probably versatile enough that one could get by with just it. Rolling back the volume knob on the guitar is very effective with this pedal, and I can't wait to try it live with a full band (Maybe I'll add an update to this post once I get to play it live). The Bottom Line: If you are into fuzz pedals, I'd give this one a try.While it can get nasty, it is also very mild. Can still play chords without all the jarble.very versatile. And the Fulltone build quality. Overall very happy w the purchase.The fuzz knob usable fuzz range starts from 3 o'clock position and higher, any position lower and it won't make a difference. Unless you put your master volume to full blast which is way too loud. I prefer Keeley's Fuzz Bender, it much more useful at all settings.Differences are so minor I'd believe they were from the same run of pedals. Some amps sounded 'better' with one pedal, some with the other - but, again, barely. If you want to pick a specific (other) transistor, go order a Sun Face. But if you're good with the BC-108C you can save a few bucks and go with the Fulltone - it sounds great.Built like a tank. I mostly play classic rock.

This 70s fuzz pedal gives me plenty of distortion when needed and also cleans up well when I lower the guitar volume.Cleans up much better than I thought it would which makes it perfect for those times when it will be the only drive pedal i use.Prodotto venduto come nuovo ma all’arrivo palesemente usato. Contattati non si sono neanche degnati di rispondermi. Pessimi. From the early days when you would pin a whole in your speaker, to the wide range of clones and boutiques that are available today.The fuzz was a staple in most setups and like Jimi Hendrix, David also relied on the Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face for his overdrive and lead tones. The pedal was featured on classic songs like Echoes, Time and Money. In 1976, David replaced his old fuzz pedals with the Big Muff. Just by adjusting the gain with the guitar volume, a single pedal could produce anything from boosted cleans to warm overdrive and thunderous growl. The Big Muff has a much more saturated tone, with a smoother character and sustain. The distortion pedal appeared in the late 70s. That will ensure the best signal and tone. They need a minimum of volume, and preferably a bit of tube break up, to open up and get that dynamic tone. You can compensate to some extent with a transparent true bypass booster placed behind it, like the Colorsound Power Boost. Read more here. The vintage fuzz circuit is incredibly versatile. By using the guitar volume control, they could control the signal feed from the guitar to the pedal and get just the right amount of gain for different tones and passages in the music. You never really know what to get when you pick a string. The fuzz circuit is far from perfect, which makes it all more unique. The silicon transistor will produce all kinds of wild oscillation sounds if you push it hard. Both will react differently to different types (and brands!) of batteries. Love them or hate them.

Recognized by its warm and extremely dynamic and responsive character, the germanium fuzz is still a favourite among many guitarists. Using the guitar volume control, you can get anything from warm cleans to growling fuzz, with all those lovely fuzz harmonics. The Fuzz Phrase feature a matched pair of the OC44 germanium transistors. Roll down the guitar volume for a cleaner tone and it still maintains its character and tone. Classic Hendrix and early Gilmour with just the right amount of gain, top and lower end. The SunFace cleans up incredibly well, allowing the pedal to act as a booster and overdrive, as well as classic fuzz. The current version of the NKT275 also feature a Sundial, a third control that basically acts like a bias control. Definitely the smoothest and most authentic sounding of the germaniums listed here. Classic germanium circuit with a pair of PNP transistors, producing warm and smooth fuzz with lots of rich harmonics.Some find these a bit too wild and hard to tame and often with good reason. However, with some tweaking and the right amp for the job, you can make a silicon fuzz sing like a Big Muff. This is a faithful clone of the 1969-70 Hendrix era Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face with the BC108 silicon transistors, a handwired brown circuit board and the classic looking hammertone chassis. Of all the current Dunlop reissues and signature models, this is the most vintage sounding, with an open and dynamic tone, lots of gain and a well balanced frequency spectrum. Compared to most other silicon fuzz, the blue London Fuzz has a smoother tone and an internal trimmer allows you to tweak the tone even further. The pedal produce a bright, saturated gain with lots of sustain and character. An additional buffer switch, eliminates the strange oscillation sounds you get from placing wahs in front of fuzz pedals. All in all an OK fuzz pedal but far from as vintage and authentic sounding as the many clones available.

Still though, pairing this one up with a transparent booster, will smooth out most of those harsh digital overtones and add a bit of that vintage flavour. The SunFace 108 has been my main fuzz for years and whenever I replace it, I soon return to it. Like the SunFace NKT275 germanium fuzz, the BC108 has that authentic vintage flavour and authentic circuit. The tone is bright and smooth, with rich harmonics and sustain. Definitely not the pedal if you want something easy going and mild. Personally, I also prefer fuzz pedals that cleans up better with the guitar volume. The Olympia stands bets on its own and works very well on lower levels and bedroom setups.But I can’t hear any of these effects on the whole tour. Did he even use them in 80-81? Read more about David Gilmour’s Animals and Wall board here. Depends on how hot your pickups are.Can you give an opinion about this pedal? Where does the proCo rat fall into this category. I know Gilmour likes his rat for playing on money when he used to use the fuzz face. Would you consider the rat a fuzz or distortion and what settings would you recommend for using it as a fuzz? Thanks. Rob h Very much like Hendrix’ setup. The Rat has a bit of the fuzz character in it, especially when you crank the gain all the way up but I would say it more like a distortion, with a lot of mid range and compression. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve referenced this site. I’m looking for a fuzz to round out a board and I’m not sure what will best fit in my rig. A BC108 fuzz would be the closest match for that era although you may want to check out a Muff as well for the post-Animals era. The EHX Green Russian is perhaps your most versatile choice. See this feature too for some tips on choosing the right pedals for different types of amps. I see in the amps article that sometimes it is preferable to use a distortion instead of a true fuzz on certain amps.

Given the other pedals I have to stack with and the amp I most frequently use is there any pedal that stacks better than others, or a reason to go into distortion instead of fuzz? Do you have any experience with the Hartman BC108 silicon fuzz. I know Hartman have closed doors, but I have this pedal and really like it. I’m curious as to how it holds up compared to the analog man version. Thanks, Toby I haven’t tried that one but Hartman had some great stuff. Superb fuzz pedal I’ve been meaning to do a video on it. Do you think it can reproduce gilmourish tones? ( I’m using a katana 50 and black strat custom shop? A bit too compressed and smooth for my taste but certainly a versatile pedal that works much better on smaller amps than a Muff or fuzz. Since some time I’m working on the original “Time” Fuzz tone. While fiddeling around with different pedals and also experimenting with digital amp simulations like “Amplitube”, I’m not anyware near the desired tone. This is probably one of the most difficult guitar sounds to recreate, maby because David always has been experimental. I know you get in touch with many guitar pedals and other tools to create certain tones and maby you can help me further. Thank you! Yes, David’s lead tone on Time album version is difficult. You never know how a guitar is recorded. At least not down to the small details. We do know what gear he used but what about mics and mic positions, how was the signal recorded, did they compress or drive the channel strip, they add anything in the mix.I tried to get the Fuzz sound with the help of different Gain Pedal such as VickAudio’s 73 Rams Head Big Muff or Tree Of Life. Unfortunately I have no physical Fuzz pedal in the moment, so I also tried to use Amplitube to get a digital Fuzz. But this didn’t worked out for me. I compressed the Signal with the Effectrode PC-2A and used the TC Electronic Flashback with the analog Delay. I use a Fender AM Pro Strat or a Fender Mex.

Strat with a SSL5 in the bridge position. On the other hand I could get the Sun Face Fuzz from Analogman. The clean channel sounds great but it’s horrible with pedals. I recommend using the gain channel, with the gain set as clean as possible, treble rolled back a hint and a bit of mids boost. You really don’t need a lot of pedals to do Time. A silicon Fuzz and some analog echo will do the job. The Helios is great but I think a more conventional fuzz, like a grey Fuzz Face or the Sunface BC109 will be better. I will try to get the Analogman Sunface to Germany. I know you already made a video about this pedal, but you didn’t play Time back than (Bur Echoes was great listen). A cover of the solo with the original sound would be great in a future video. They are ultra compact; if you have, any thoughts, particularly on the feature that lets you switch between germanium and silicon. On that note- is a review of (finally!) official EHX Ram’s Head reissue coming soon. Thanks! Cheers, Chris Not sure if they’re available at this point. Anyway, they’re basically smaller versions of the bigger Fuss Face pedals, which is what David used back in the days. The new EHX hasn’t been released just yet as far as I know but I’ll do a review as soon as they send me one. I’m considering buying either the germanium Fuzz Face Mini or the red London Fuzz. I can see that you’ve ranked the London Fuzz pretty well among some of the other fuzzes, but I’m just curious as to what your opinions on the Fuzz Face Mini are. How well does it do early Gilmour tones if you’ve tried it? Thanks! Personally I think the London Fuzz has more character and I like the fact that it has a bit more gain then your typical germanium fuzz. I do see one come up for sale occasionally, but you can always go for it’s close to equal Analogman Sunface NKT275.

It is also the same as the original circuit, but just a bit less gain than the Authentic Vintage Series London Fuzz, which has a bias knob for dialing it in to any changes the temperature may cause.I know buffers cause problems when placed before germanium units but also that vibe and phaser effects sound great when placed before gain. Obviously I’d try it out myself but I cant seem to find a local guitar shop that has a rotovibe I can test out. Thanks:-) Especially with a hint of breakup from the amp. Says its suppose to emulate the color boost as a clone, but it has the bc109 transistor which comes in the fuzz face so which sounds am I getting from this pedal, the fuzz face or the color driver. Lol Thank you. Rob. Are you positive about that. There really no info anywhere on what gear he’s used. His tone at that show was stellar!!! I also have an analogman Astro tone that sounds similar to the BC109 and I also use an electro harmonix germanium OD that has one NKT275 white dot. It works great as a volume boost and warms up the mids while making them also slightly clearer. Please help with any info on the fuzz. It would put my mind to rest. When people ask who some of my favorite bass players are, I always mention Gilmour. (Wink wink) I might be mistaken, but I think he also used HH preamps at Hollywood Bowl? How good is soul food for fuzz? The BD2 has a transparent tube amp quality, while the Soul Food or Klon has m,uch more mid range and compression. They both act very well as booster but as overdrive pedals they sound very different. I understand it’s not a fuzz face circuit but I can’t find a review of someone using one into a clean amp like a hiwatt. I’m guessing this has a similar tone to a big muff. Thinking about getting one to try, not for Gilmour sounds but for myself. Thanks I’d say that it sounds more like a beefed up fuzz than a Muff although the difference isn’t that big. We’ll see how this goes. Just wanting to try something different.

I’ve happily had my own fuzz face in my setup for years now but it’s time to try something else just to see if I like it more. It peaked my interest when I read that it cleans up pretty well with guitar volume despite having so much gain. I’m play a lot of blues, and use my fuzz face for leads. So I’m excited. I bought the big chassis fuzz instead of the little one.I hope you’re still digging the Fralin’s!! Hit me up brother, KEITH I do think it was the 109B but I’m not 100%. I opted for a rare Telefunken BC109C transistor for slightly more money. The sound is absolutely to die for. You can easily cop any sounds from very early Pink Floyd thru Obscured By Clouds, DSOTM (specifically the solo in Time) and beyond. The Analogman BC109C is one awesome fuzz pedal. If I were in your shoes I’d go for the limited Telefunken transistor if it is still on offer. When I use it into my chain pedals it sound thinner, simular to DG 70’ s sound. Many thanks Unless you have an exact replica of his rig, it won’t sound the same. From what I rember he’s mostly using Marshall amps, which are considerably darker and more aggressive sounding than Hiwatts. Add his loud volume on top of that and the fuzz will surely sound bigger and darker. Keep in mind too that fuzz pedals don’t like buffers, so you might want to reconsider that BD2. Not sure about the echo pedal. Also, be careful with the treble and presence on your Hiwatt. Roll them down considerably if your tone is too bright. See this feature for more on amp setups. I will try to revert the fuzz position in my chain placing Muff after the BD2 and then Fuzz. Second, i would like to buy a fuzz pedal. Ive a nos gilmour strat, a vox ac30 c2x, and i work with bd2 keeley mod, a cs2, ce3, rv3 and an eleclady. I used to push all distorcion and overdrive from bd2.and its sounds realy good, but I would like to buy a fuzz to get more like a fuzzy sound.you know.what you would sugest.that combine well with all the rest. Thanks for your time.

Love your videos and site. Vox amps usually doesn’t go that well with fuzz pedals, or, at least for David’s tones. Maybe you’d want to look into something more versatile. See this feature for more. When you state that clean signal was used on rythm parts do you mean what do you exactly mean. Do you think David had one Hiwatt for fuzz and echo and the other one straight clean. I apologize to comment hear but there is no comment section on tbe pompeii article. By the way, If you get the chance, try the Chasetone 68 red velvet fuzz. Would love to know what is your opinion about that one. Thanks in advance! (and for all of your work here and on youtube) Clean but with enough pre-amp drive to make them slightly compressed and a bit hairy, without actually distorting. When you hear him play with clean tones that’s just the Hiwatt. He kicks in the fuzz whenever he needs it. Because of everything just being strewn on the floor I’d say he probably put the fuzz face and foot pedal for the Binson close enough that he could just kick both on at the same time. See how they’re placed on the ground and see him lean forward and clearly step on something during Echoes. Thanks for the replies, by the way. I’ve got so much to learn! He’s also adjusting the echo level for different parts. It sounds ok but was wondering if you could share some tones with me, especially the muff and delay stuff. Hope to hear back soon It has some really nice and strange effects and delay sounds that I often use to create layers on recordings but I don’t have any Gilmour sounds. Sorry. I have a couple of their pedals and find them versatile and responsive. From what I’ve seen, it accurately replicates 8 different muff varieties ranging from the triangle to the ram’s head that he uses these days. Is it worth my time (and money!)?. Cheers. Now it runs against the big Muff with tone wicker. Do you know carcosa. Which would you prefer? A vintage style fuzz can sound pretty horrible on the wrong setup.

It’s all explained in this feature. GENUINE PIG FACE (Fuzz) pedal. You prefer ANALOGMAN mod.The SF BC109 is very close to those classic Dark Side tones. I reigiously read all of your posts and have purchased a minimum of 12 pedals based solely on your reviews of various products that are above and beyond the “standard” pedals on the market. I find this to be a very nice pedal as it has five different fuzz settings (None, LED, FET, Si1 and Si2). The beauty of this pedal lies in the 8-bit potentiometer, whereby a player can dial in exactly the level of 8-bit grunge they are looking for. I also love the fact that the Clusterfuzz has separate Volume and Fuzz potentiometers as well as a highly effective Filter switch. I am a fuzz fanatic and must say that the Clusterfuzz is an incredible fuzz ppedal that allows the individual player to sculpt incredible fuzz tones.It is siply fantastic, in my opinion. Lots to like about his beast of a pedal. The Mids knob helps cut through the mix live. I think it works well for DSOTM sounds. For the price of it new, i am amazed at what it can do a d does for me Haven’t tried it. Really keen on getting a Sunface with Silicon transistors, but there’s quite a few to choose from. I’ve narrowed it down to BC183 and BC109b.Which one do you think would fair better overall. I am also curious about whether the BC109b could clean up, with the guitar’s volume, to reasonable extent with a bit of tweakiing. As I’m sure you are aware, silicon transistor fuzz doesn’t clean up as well as germanium. It also depends on how hot your pickups are. There are subtle differences between all silicon transistors and again, how they sound and how well they fit your rig, depends on your pickups and amp. In my experience the 108 is more open sounding, the 109 has a bit more gain and the 183 has a slightly darker tone with more lows. I bought one on a whim as only 100 of these pedals were made.

I’ve had extraordinary results pairing the Black Muck with the Fuzz Phrase. Having both pedals in my pedal chain, I can literally obtain any Gilmour tone I’ve heard on any Pink Floyd or Gilmour solo album. Aggressive? Yes! But at the same time the Black Muck is laid back audio nivana. I cannot recommend the Black Muck highly enough. Admittedly, it exhibits more of Big Muff Pi characteristics than it does SI Fuzz characteristics, IMHO, but man oh man, it sounds heavenly. Thanks so much for all of your incredible reviews. Do you know which transistors are in your Sunface BC109. Are they 109B or 109C. The Analogman site is a bit confusing, but it seems there are a few choices available for the 109. Also, do you know how the Analogman BC109 compares to the Mojo Hand FX Pompeii.I think mine is a B. The Pompeii that I got sounded like a fart and I sent it back. Never heard from them again and the pedal was eventually pulled. The Sunface BC109 is hard to beat but do check out the grey Dunlop FF as well. Sounds awesome! I opted for the BC109C with a NOS Telefunken transistor after discussing various nuances with Mike Piera aka Analog.man. This is an extraordiinary pedal. It absolutely nails the Gilmour Time solo. In my opinion, no other fuzz pedal I’ve tried comes as close to replicating every last nuance of Gimour’s tone circa ’70-’75 as the BC109C. As Mike stated, the BC109C just has a little more of everything when compared to the BC109B. More Volume, more Sustain, more Fuzz. My personal advice would be the BC109C with the Telefunken Transistor. I hope this helps. Would it even make the cut The Dunlop JHF1 is also worth checking out. Hotter humbuckers doesn’t clean up as well as PAFs or similar. I would go for a full range pedal like the OCD, Buffalo FX TD-X or even the Boss BD2. It does a good clean up with humbuckers al well and can get me to each nuances of Fuzz Gary Clark Jr uses (just to give you an idea).

Replacing the GI Fuzz with the Pig Hoof kills a good amount of my sustain. I think the Pig Hoof may need to be used at a louder volume to really make it shine. It’s a very different pedal compared to the Hoof, which is a scooped out heavy gain Big Muff. The fact that you can add a bit of presence and mid range to the GI, makes it sound louder, slightly more compressed and sustained. The Mini Germanium is great and way better than its bigger brother. Cheers! I do find that I have trouble cutting through the mix even though I use a clean boost after it for soloing and have a lot of mids in my amp (an ampeg gvt). Is there a fuzz you can recommend that works better with humbuckers. Or would a treble boost type pedal work instead? Germanium fuzz traditionally doesn’t have that much mids but it’s the total that counts. If you do want more mids, you could add an EP Booster, EQ or look for an overdrive with more mids. Thank you for your assistance! If there are any. I have purchased many pedals based solely upon your reviews. The pedal is phenomenal in every respect. I cannot comment on “difference” between the standard Fuzz Phrase vs the P2P version as I have never tried the standard Fuzz Phrase. However, I can say that the P2P Fuzz Phrase has become my go-to fuzz pedal. Thought it was OK but I guess my main issue was that it was not a fuzz nor a Muff. It sounded a bit dark and average to me but I can definitely see the potential for someone using a bright Fender amp. Personally, between silicon and sermanium, I prefer the germanium fuzz pedal. They sound more organic, more warm, more articulate, yet fat and aggressive. Silicon fuzz pedals are aggressive too, but overall they sound too harsh to my ears (Time solo in the TDSOTM original recording, for example). For those sounds, I prefer my Dover Drive (I bought it after viewing your video-review) that at high-gain settings offers a nice fuzzface-like tone.
