Go from waxy smooth, violin-like sustain to grittier tones with razor-sharp bite. Sculpt your fuzz tone into everything from the thick leads of 1970's classic rock to heavier alternative sounds of the 80's and 90's.

Only minimal drawback, this does NOT come with a power supply. I have the Outlaw Iron Horse tuner you go with it (and all of my pedals) and that powers everything I own so far. Worth it.
The name suckered me in. I'm kind of a fool for naming conventions like this, so Outlaw got me. I also appreciated that they avoided the double entendre naming conventions that fuzz pedals tend to go for. I'd rather not have a pedal called "The Dirty Pickle", or "The Fuzzy Crotch", or "Phallic Phuzz" on my pedal board while playing worship music at church. It was also smaller than I thought it would be, but I guess that's neither here nor there (I'm behind the times with the micro pedal craze). Also, if you don't already have a 9V adapter, order one with this thing or you'll have to sit around like an idiot for a few days with a pedal you can't use until your adapter comes in.
If you were expecting any subteties, throw those expectations out the window. This is a reasonably priced fuzz pedal designed to fuzz the crap out your guitar, so if you're down with that, you're in the right place. I believe this was designed to emulate Big Muff fuzztones (don't quote me on that), so expect heavy heavy fuzz. You can dial it back some with the sustain knob, but to my ear, this pedal works best at around 1 to 2 o'clock. Too low and it's just a tad muddy with a lot of hiss and too high goes into almost metal distortion territory.
And don't expect to clean up with your guitar's volume or tone knobs. Volume goes from 0 to fuzz fast and then just goes to loud fuzz after that but what do you expect? This ain't a Five O'clock Gentle Tone Bender, it's a dang fuzz! Guitar's tone knobs do absolutely nothing. Thick fuzz at 0 and thick fuzz at 10 with no appreciable difference. But again, remember what this is.
Put your overdrive pedal in your chain before this pedal, not after. If it's before, and both are engaged, it'll boost the fuzz sound with some overdrive clarity. If it is after the fuzz, you'll just get more hiss and the guitar will disappear in the midst. I don't know if this is par for the course or just a quirk with this pedal, but there it is.
Hard to beat at around $50. Don't mistake my criticisms for lack of satisfaction. The fuzz that comes out of this thing belies the diminutive stature and cost, so as long as you know what you're getting into, this is a good buy. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 mostly because while a good value, it's still not quite a 5 star pedal, but I think that's the point.
