Big Knob Pedals Fuzz FaceLift

Various

Big Knob Pedals

We know, we know - another Fuzz Face clone. Sure it's a classic, but sometimes it seems to have just been overdone. We really thought long and hard about coming out with this one. But when several of our repeat customers specifically requested we make one, we knew they were trusting us based on our other pedals that, if did add one to the product line-up, odds are it would be frickin' awesome! So in-between grinding out our daily orders, we tweaked, prodded (and admittedly stole some great ideas from others) until the ultimate FF clone was born - the Fuzz FaceLift. And, yes, it is ... AWESOME! Never have two knobs sounded better.

The Fuzz FaceLift pedal is 100% hand-wired and made with only top quality components, including genuine old-school NOS AC128 germanium transistors (the exact kind used in the original Dallas-Arbiter units) that are specifically matched for this pedal, a heavy-duty die-cast Hammond case and an Electro-Harmonix 3PDT true bypass footswitch.

NOTE: Because of its original vintage design incorporating a positive ground power supply and the amount of hand-wired vintage components inside, there is currently no 9v pedalboard power supply operation available for this model, just normal 9v battery operation. That being said, a single 9v battery should last for many months of heavy use due to this particular pedal's low current flow.

Big Knob Pedals (Germanium)

Our super-charged update on the fuzz classic used by Hendrix and countless others. Hand-wired circuitry includes matched NOS Russian military germanium transistors to make this the creamiest, most authentic Fuzz Face you'll ever hear. And just like the original, it cleans up nicely with a roll-off of guitar volume.

Fuzz Facelift features:

  • Adds creamy sustain and fuzzy thickness
  • Two matched NOS Russian military germanium transistors
  • Controls for Level and Attack
  • Fully hand-wired analog circuitry
  • Compact MXR-sized enclosure
  • True bypass 3PDT switching
  • Bright indicator LED
  • 9V DC battery clip included

Big Knob Pedals (Silicon)

Newly redesigned for a smoother, creamier fuzz tone, this version adds more gain than the germanium yet still retains a bright, clean tone with your guitar volume rolled back. This may be the best silicon Fuzz Face yet!

Fuzz Facelift Silicon features:

  • Higher gain silicon transistors create a grittier, longer sustain
  • Controls for Level and Attack
  • Fully hand-wired analog circuitry
  • Compact MXR-sized enclosure
  • True bypass 3PDT switching
  • Bright indicator LED
  • Accepts standard 9V pedal adaptor
  • 9V DC battery clip included
