    One more for today. This one is a high gain MK2 Tonebender with an added tone filter control. The addition of the filter lets a player trim the bass to tailor the fuzz to their amp, guitar and mix. All the way counterclockwise cuts a lot of bass and fully clockwise gives you the stock MK2 sound.This one is loaded with Phillips AC125 transistors and is housed in a Hammond enclosure. It features a one of a kind etched plate with a beautiful patina. WARNING: This one is a high gain pedal. Please use carefully around small children, the elderly and your pets! Haha! Get at me if you want it!

    I have another Fuzz Face available! This one has NOS NKT278 Red Dot transistors and man they sound stunning. The beautifully hammered box holds all the NOS goodies. Big 24mm pots with carbon comp resistors, Phillips e-caps and a Mullard mustard cap all held together on that gorgeous oldschool brown vero. This one almost looks as good as it sounds. Get at me if you want it! Thanks!

    EDIT: SOLD!

    Another Fuzz Face up for grabs. This one has a pair of military grade CV7112 transistors which are a staple of some of the heavy hitters in the fuzz world. This one goes from clean to mean. It has a lovely shimmering clean with the volume of your guitar rolled back. Add a little more guitar volume and you are into a sweet overdrive with plenty of character. Bring that guitar volume up to full and you are now into a rich and chewy fuzz with a hint of upper harmonics. Beyond tasty! Sonic heaven!

    Custom Overdriver with a "full" footswitch to bypass the gain pot and get to max gain.

    I have another one up for grabs. This one has a pair of Mullard OC72 transistors which have a huge sound. This one goes from mean to clean and everywhere in between. The fuzz sweep has been modified to spread the fuzz out over the entire control. Crunchy overdrive to fat and dirty fuzz textures. Subtle or thick and chewy. Check out the Lo-Fi clip!

    Damn! So many fine pedals. I've never had a fuzz pedal, but I know that after listening to a few of these, I know I want one, but I just have no idea which one. I'm really going to have spend some time listening to them all and figuring out what's best for me. Damn fine pedals.

    Thank you, sir! I really have to wrap my head around this considering I've never used one, never thought I'd ever need one as I've always used a couple of OD pedals, but after listening to yours, I was blown away. I think that once I find the SG I'm looking for and pop in the Reilander Meatsauce pups I have here, together with one your fuzz pedals, should sound killer.

    I have an OC43 Rangemaster available. This one delivers a sweet singing overdrive or can slam your amp for an amazing lead tone.
