Description

The Fuzz Face is one of the big classics in stompboxes. This 69er version features 2 germanium transistors and has posititive ground. So it is NOT possible to power it along other pedals on one power supply. You need an extra power supply or a battery.

This kit contains all parts you need to build a fully functional effect pedal. You can select the enclosure you want. You only need a 9V battery or power supply and 4 knobs for the potentiometers, for 6,3mm shaft.

5 from 5 Une très bonne fuzz à la mode sixties

J’espérais une pédale de bonne qualité, mais ce kit - livré avec des transistors vintages triés sur le volet (un AC125 et un AC122 dans mon cas) - permet de fabriquer carrément une pédale qualité boutique pour le tiers du prix dune Fuzz Face ordinaire!
Le kit nest pas trop compliqué à réaliser, les composants sont bien identifiés, les extrémités des fils sont pré-dénudées et le schéma de montage est clair.
Jai néanmoins regretté le manque dinformation sur lorientation des transistors (ce sont des vieux modèles) et sur le réglage du bias pour Q2. Bien entendu, on peut trouver ces infos sur le Net, mais il est dommage de ne pas les avoir directement.

Sinon, côté son, cest une tuerie.
On peut aussi bien avoir une fuzz scintillante à la Satisfaction/Spirits in The Sky, quune disto ronde et incisive façon Gilmour période Ummagumma/Meddle. Et si on associe cette 69er avec une Tubescreamer légèrement crunchy, on peut accéder à tous les sons dHendrix de la grande époque.
Les boutons Contour, Fuzz et Bias offrent en effet une large palette de sonorités, et quand on réduit le volume sur la guitare, le son séclaircit comme par miracle.
Ajoutez à cela que - pour un clone de Fuzz Face germanium survitaminé - cette pédale souffle relativement peu et produit peu de parasites, et vous saurez que vous avez trouvé ce dont tout fan de Classic Rock peut rêver.
Une excellente Fuzz, polyvalente, très sensible aux attaques de médiator, favorable au sustain genre hurlements woodstockien et aux envolées woman tone claptoniennes.
Bref: un trésor.

5 from 5 Great Fuzz!

This is a relatively simple to build Fuzz with excellent sounds. The PCB has few components and is thus easy to assemble. This fuzz sounds great on most setups and Ive built about six of these now.

5 from 5 Fantastic and versatile fuzz

Ive been looking for a fuzz to add that extra dirt to a lightly distorted valve amp - and now Ive found it. The versatility of The Face 69er makes it the best fuzz Ive tried, and Ive been through a few kits and boutique pedals. Its all down to taste, I know, but this kits does the trick in my setup: mostly guitars with P90s, Effectrode Tubedrive, Orange and Vox amps.

5 from 5 My favorite one

My favorite one among all Musikding fuzzes. A little dark sounding, but always very playable. Works great coupled to overdrives, buffered wahs, univibes, etc... Recommended !

5 from 5 hit the bulls eye

it was my first experience with the fuzz. I must admit it was a right decision - it sounds very good to my ear. Spent few hours to assemble the pedal and the process was quite easy and pleasant. There was some shipping delay on DHLs side however Gitte was assisting me all the way through by e-mail and finally i got the parcel. so ill be back :)
