Be aware that the DC jack is center positive, so if you're planning on running this from a power supply you should pick up a reverse polarity converter.
I'd recommend this to anyone interested in a vintage sixties fuzz sound. Lots of different sounds can be coaxed out of this little red box, from the Black Keys to early Hendrix.
Always put this fuzz first in your signal chain. It doesn't like buffered outputs of other pedals. Also don't worry about the power supply - power this with the old type (not alkaline) of 9v batteries. Danelectro makes some that are pretty cheap. I have been using it for well over a year and still haven't needed to change the battery. The fuzz is supposed to sound better with these old style 9v's - I never bought the reverse polarity power supply to verify this, but I see no need to.
This is not the most versatile effect. Yes, you can turn down the guitar's volume and get a less dirty sound, and it still sounds great. But in terms of which instruments and amplifiers it is compatible with - in my experience, this is almost strictly a single-coil and clean amp kind of pedal. I don't really like how it sounds with humbuckers, and I really don't like how it sounds through my vox ac15 - fizzly and raspy. The vox already has too much high-end stuff going on on its own. This pedal sounds like it drives the amp too hard and beyond the realm of good-sounding amp distortion. It sounds like it's clipping hard, and not in a good way. It sounds like a skill saw. But plug a strat into this and run that into basically any fender amp, and it's perfect. A blues jr is great but a twin is spectacular.
Next I want to try the soul bender.

This pedal added unwanted brightness - a lot of brightness even though I tried it with different amps and guitars. This is the main reason I returned it. Read morePublished 10 months ago by H. Mac
I bought this effect based on the great reviews I saw on Youtube and the quality of Fulltone products. It is a good effect and does the job. Read morePublished on May 17, 2013 by D. Verret
