Dunlop Band of Gypsies Fuzzface Mini

This is a special pedal. Late in his career, Jimi Hendrix was known to use a red Fuzzface with white knobs that had a very different sound than his other Fuzzface pedals. That pedal was shrouded in mystery and for years; no one knew what it was or how to recreate that sound. What Dunlop have done here is to research and explore and ultimately recreate that pedal! This thing is a wonderful little monster and could not be more fun to play!

HornFX Review

Interface:  4.5/5
With just two knobs all you have to do as ask two questions. How much fuzz do you want? How loud do you want it to be?

Versatility: 2/5
A great pedal does not need to do a million things to be great. This pedal falls into that category, and only does less or more fuzz. (More might be a good idea).

Tonal Reproduction: 4/5
Unlike many other fuzz pedals, your tone with not be hidden or overmastered by the distortion. Your sound speaks clearly even at the most intense fuzz settings. The effect itself is quite smooth and warm and can pack a lot of punch all at the same time.

Complexity: Simple

Complexity: Simple

Live application: 4/5
This is simply a great live pedal. First thing to note is that compared to its relatives, this Fuzzface is SMALL. You will have no trouble fitting this thing on your board. It gives you super simple control of some beautiful sounding fuzz tones and is a lot of fun to play with.
