The Jim Dunlop JD-FFM2 Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Effects Pedal brings the '66-'68 era pre-silicon Fuzz Face energy back for us all to enjoy. Rather than producing the bright and aggressive fuzz that silicon transistor powered Fuzz Faces are known for, germanium powered Fuzz Faces produce a warmer "vintage"-style tone that can be most closely linked with players such as: Jimi Hendrix, David Gilmour, Duane Allman, Pete Townshend, Eric Johnson, and George Harrison. If you're a vintage tone purist, then you're going to love the FFM2.
Vintage warmth aplenty
As noted above, the Jim Dunlop JD-FFM2 Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Effects Pedal delivers vintage warmth by the bucket load. The control layout is nice and simple: Fuzz attenuates how much fuzz you want in the signal; Volume dictates how loud the signal will be once Fuzz has been introduced. As the Fuzz Face responds to your playing dynamics and incoming dry signal, subtle attenuation of the volume and tone controls on your guitar, along with the Fuzz and Volume knobs, produce a mind-blowing range of tones to play with. Softly tease out notes and they'll sing out with a graceful elegance. Turn everything up and dig in, and prepare yourself for some truly astonishing energy.
Gig-ready, power efficient
Complete with true-bypass switching, the Jim Dunlop Germanium Fuzz Face Mini retains an unaffected dry signal when not in use, so you can rest assured that the pure fidelity of your guitar's tone will sing out beautifully. The diminuitive size of the Fuzz Face Mini means that no matter how crowded your pedalboard may be, you'll find a spot for it somewhere. As one would expect, the pedal is built like an absolute tank, and is well equipped to handle life on the road. With a choice of drawing power from either a 9-Volt AC adapter, a power supply such as the DC Brick, or a single 9-Volt battery, you're not short of options when it comes to staying powered up and ready to rock.
The Jim Dunlop JD-FFM1 Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion Effects Pedal will add a whole lot of vintage magic to your arsenal, and give you a deliciously dirty distortion reminiscent of a magical musical era.
