FACE is based on the venerable and highly prized FuzzFace of the mid to late 60’s. Possibly the most classic and well known fuzz, and for good reason. Fat blooming tones with a warm attack, singing sustain and beautiful sparkling cleanup.

FACE is built using the classic FuzzFace schematic with a custom designed PCB using two matched Germanium or Silicon transistors. Classic controls for FUZZ and VOLUME. Internal controls for INPUT gain and BIAS give you a couple extra tricks to dial it in for your setup. INPUT trim will reduce the signal hitting the fuzz, tightening up the low strings and cleaning up the fuzz overall. All the way down is “stock”, all the way up is almost cleaned up to an overdrive. BIAS will sweep between blasted blown out nasty fuzz, to a smoother “properly biased” sound, to thick and gated and everywhere in between. Ships with the “optimal” bias pre set but you’re welcome to experiment! FACE is also louder than stock, able to push volume well above unity gain.

NOS capacitors and Germanium/Silicon transistors are used throughout, specific components are subject to availability, though I am able to make a ripping fuzz with a variety of caps and transistors.


Standard model ships using a matched NOS G.E. 2N1303 Germanium transistor set or a matched NOS BC108c Silicon Metal Can set. Please specify Germanium or Silicon in the checkout comments. OR upgrade to an all British transistor set for the Germanium version (typically Mullard, Brimar, NKT etc…). To select British transistors, add upgrade to your cart on the “British Transistor Upgrade” page.


Available in Blue Hammer enclosure.
