The Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal features the same legendary Fuzz Face tone in a much more compact size. Based on the mid-'60s Fuzz Faces with slightly mismatched germanium transistors, this distortion pedal lets you achieve that warm vintage fuzz tone. The Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion also includes true bypass switching and a bright status LED. If you're looking for that vintage germanium fuzz tone, the Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal is the right choice for you.
When the earliest Fuzz Faces were introduced to the guitar world, their circuitries were well known for the germanium transistors that contributed to a warm, vintage fuzz tone that was popularized by guitar legends such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour. Silicon transistors were used in the later editions of the pedal, but they provided a harsher sound. The Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini allows you to capture that classic germanium fuzz tone.
One of the inconveniences of incorporating a traditional Fuzz Face pedal in a pedalboard is its unusually large housing size. On many occasions, guitarists and bassists would have to sacrifice one or more pedals that they love in order to insert a Fuzz Face in the signal chain. With this improved, pedalboard-friendly housing design, size is no longer an issue.
Classic germanium fuzz tone in a smaller box, you can't go wrong with the Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Pedal!
