IT REALLY WAS A STROKE OF LUCK THAT THE PEDAL ACTUALLY WORKED. I’D NEVER BEEN ABLE TO FIND A FUZZ PEDAL THAT WAS READILY AVAILABLE AND SOUNDED AUTHENTIC, SO I THOUGH I\’D HAVE A GO AT MAKING ONE MYSELF. MY SOLDERING SKILLS WEREN’T GREAT, AND AFTER A FEW BURNS AND FRUSTRATING HOURS I PLUGGED IT IN. TO MY SURPRISE IT WORKED AND SOUNDED GREAT. WARM, FUZZY, SATURATED AND YET WHEN THE GUITAR VOLUME IS TURNED DOWN A LITTLE. IT ENDED UP BEING A MAIN STAY ON MY PEDAL BOARD EVER SINCE. I GOT A FAIR AMOUNT OF INTEREST FROM DIFFERENT PLAYERS WHO WANTED TO GET A SIMILAR SOUND, AND ASKED ME IF I COULD MAKE THEM ONE.more
I find this fuzz pedal great for my style of music, which is a kind of blues meets soul meets jazz. Listen to Scott McKeon's promo video on his webpage for this pedal (http://www.smfuzz.com/). That's just the sound I get through my amps which is either a Fender Blues jr, a Genz Benz Black Pearl 30 or a clone of a Fuchs ODS 50.
