Over the course of 1970, Jimi Hendrix appeared at his most noted live appearancesLive at Woodstock, Live at Berkeley, and Live at the Fillmore Eastusing a mysterious red Fuzz Face Distortion with white knobs. That fuzz box sounded like a completely different animal from any of the other Fuzz Face pedals in Jimis arsenal, snarling with a far more aggressive, biting tone.

The pedal itself has been lost to history, but its unmistakably unique tone lives on in the recordings of those three iconic shows, and Hendrix aficionados have tried to cop that sound for years. We are happy to say that their tonal quest can finally come to a glorious end.

Poring tirelessly over all of the different customized circuit designs Jimi used over the years, our engineers narrowed down this elusive fuzz tone to a version of the Octavio circuit that didnt have the octave up signal. After making a few tweaks, they nailed it with the Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Distortion.

Now, you can get the same Fuzz Face tone Jimi used to woo the masses at some of his most famous performances. It comes in a pedalboard-friendly Fuzz Face Mini housing, complete with an AC power jack and an on/off status LED.

when is the L&M webmaster gonna put this under Dunlop......anyway, i to, have for years, caused many a blank (bored) look on people's faces with talk of Jimi's mysterious red FF with the white knobs used at his woodstock, fillmore, and berkeley gigs.......nice of Dunlop to notice to and put out this beautiful sounding Fuzz Face.....LOTS of gain and very fat and smooth......i thought they'd be germanium transistors but they're silicon, and, there's 3, rather than the typical 2 transistors.
