Fulltone's '69 mkII fuzz pedal has a secret weapon for the ultimate fuzz tone - germanium transistors. Germanium is an element that used to be used frequently in audio gear, creating the vintage sounds we know and love. The '69 mkII uses germanium transistors to make your tone sing with vintage vibe, and features true bypass to keep your tone pure when the pedal is off. When you plug into the '69 mkII and start tweaking the fuzz and contour controls, the richness and musicality will have you convinced you're playing the real deal. Whether you're looking for smooth sustain or filthy fuzzy funk, the Fulltone '69 mkII will serve it up.
