This pedal combines the two different flavors of Fuzz Face Distortion tones—aggressive silicon-based crunch and smooth germanium-based saturation—that Jimi Hendrix used throughout his career, all in a mini MXR housing modern appointments such as a status LED, true-bypass switching, and a 9-volt power jack. Emblazoned with the trippy, kaleidoscopic designs of award-winning UK-based design crüe ILOVEDUST.
The Long Story
The Jimi Hendrix ’69 Psych Series Fuzz Face Distortion captures two different flavors of Jimi Hendrix fuzz tones in a single mini housing with all the appointments today’s players demand. In its default mode, this pedal discharges the aggressive silicon-based crunch that that Jimi Hendrix used in the latter part of his career. Hitting the SI/GE switch engages the warm, smooth saturation of germanium-based fuzz that he used in the early years. This pedal also uses buffered bypassing by default, allowing for a greater range of tones and full cooperation with wah pedals such as the Jimi Hendrix Cry Baby Wah. The tonal purists out there will be happy to know that a Buffer switch allows for true bypass switching.
It all comes in an MXR mini housing dressed in the trippy, kaleidoscopic designs of award-winning UK-based design crüe ILOVEDUST.
