Dunlop used this past NAMM show as an opportunity to announce its smaller, more pedalboard-friendly version of the iconic Fuzz Face Distortion pedal.
Besides being smaller and more manageable, the new Fuzz Face Mini offers several other upgrades including a bright status LED, an AC power jack and a convenient battery door.
The new 'mini' series comprises three models that recreate some of the most popular fuzz circuits:
The FFM1 Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Disctortion is spec'd from a 1970 Fuzz Face Distortion that features matched BC108 silicon transistors delivering a bright and aggressive fuzz.
The FFM2 germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion is based on '66-'68 era pre-silicon fuzz face distorion that is recognizable for its warm vintage fuzz tones provided by slightly mismatched germanium transistors.
The FFM3 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face has the same circuit as the JHF1 but in a smaller housing The FFM3 still delivers the thick, smooth fuzz face tone that Jimi Hendrix made famous.
