Okay fuzz pedal. Only really gets dialed in from 3-5, so the usable fuzz range is limited. Yeah that's how the vintage fuzz pedals were, but it's frustrating. A more complete sweep of the fuzz knob would make this pedal much, much better.

This is a good silicone fuzz face. My only beef is that running the gain above about 3 o'clock all I get is treble. Still, there's plenty of gain on tap. I run the volume at unity gain, gain knob around 1 or 2 o'clock, and my tube amp cranked. From there ride your volume knob or change your pick attack. Very nice!

If you need to get into cork-sniffing with fuzz pedals, be my guest. Some will declare that only germanium-based fuzz pedals are worthwhile, or will insist that their $200-300 fuzz pedal is superior. Well, a fuzz is an incredibly simple circuit. That doesn't mean that all are created the same, of course, or that they sound the same, but all or most are generally in the same ballpark.

I bought this primarily because I like BBE stuff and know that their build quality is generally excellent. The base tone of this pedal is very good. I feel that it might slightly roll off highs from your base tone, but not too much, and it essentially just fuzzifies whatever tone you put into it.

I tested this with various single coil equipped guitars - Jazzmaster, tele, strat - and small tube and hybrid amps. First, I don't like this pedal with the fuzz dimed. It gets too splatty for my tastes. But with volume maxed and the fuzz anywhere from 12 - 3:00 sounds excellent, especially with a slightly dirty amp. But the real test with a FF is how it works when you turn down your guitar's volume. The Windowpane works beautifully! Dial it back slightly and you get a good crunchy rhythm or solo sound (this is where the Gilmour-esque lead tones are), dial it back further and you can easily get a nice, sparkly clean (or clean-ish) tone that works very well for clean rhythms. Once you're there, all you need to do is max your guitar's volume to have the full fuzz solo sound.

Depending on what you play, you can basically leave this on all the time and get your various tones by changing pickups and adjusting your volume. Otherwise it's a pretty simple pedal to use. Not really a one-trick-pony, IMO, as you can get a few very usable base tones by adjusting your guitar's volume once you find your fuzz sweetspot.

Just got this and I've already been playing around with. This is a very nice and fun fuzz pedal, once you dial in your amp and the pedal.

I found that this pedal likes a lot of bass on your amp setting if your going to gun the fuzz (3 o'clock to max), like if you have your bass set to 11 o'clock or lower, It's a very shrill, thin, and harsh sound. Turn the bass to about 2 o'clock or higher and this gives you those nice fat fuzz tones of the 60's and 70's. With the fuzz and volume at max, you can get some dark Black Sabbath tones. With the volume at 12 and the fuzz at 3 you can get some nice Hendrix tones.

If you're not going to be using the fuzz past 12 o'clock (which I highly doubt you won't do) and the volume over 12, turn the bass done on the amp, as the sound will get super bassy with little highs and lows. This turns the pedal more into a drive pedal with some fuzzy breakup, sounds cool.

All in all, this a cool and fun pedal. A nice cross between a Fuzz Face and a Big Muff.

The BBE Windowpane Fuzz is quite a nice silicon fuzz pedal for the price. I like it. Of course, germanium fuzzes sound better but they are more expensive and rather finicky. A silicon fuzz is more reliable. The main thing about a fuzz box is knowing how to use it properly. You turn the fuzz control all the way up and control it with your guitar's volume knob. Depending on your guitar, you will get the best lead tone at 9 - 9 1/2 on the volume knob. Cut it back just a touch to clean it up, yet still distort. The usable range on a fuzz is generally between 8 and 9 1/2 on your guitar volume. For the best sound, run it into an amp that is already overdriven somewhat. That's how JIMI got his sound! Or, use the fuzz in conjunction with an overdrive box. I play my Telecaster through a Blackstar ID Core 10 watt amp and an Eleca overdrive. Very cheap stuff. I run the fuzz into the overdrive before the amp, set my guitar volume at about 9 and I'll tell you what - it sings! A fuzz is a very simple device, and you need to know how to use it. Too many players buy one, immediately decide it's crap and get rid of it. They don't realize that they threw away an amazing tool for achieving massive guitar tone. Experiment with it and you'll be rewarded.
