I stumbled across a good deal on the Dunlop JH-F1 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face. The blue version with the silicon transistor. This pedal lists for $257.49 and you usually see it available for $149.99, but is currently on sale for $136.31. The fuzz is also available with FREE super saver shipping.
Here is the official description:
The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face is a meticulously faithful reproduction of the 1969-70 Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face that Jimi used on classic albums like Band of Gypsys
Dunlop’s engineering department examined hoards of vintage Fuzz Faces, honing in on a few units that possessed unmistakable Jimi voodoo.
The Hendrix Fuzz Face is built around the toneful BC108 silicon transistor. It is authentic in every detail – a hand wired brown circuit board with no solder mask and circuitry carefully matched to the original specs. The look is 100% accurate too â€” that groovy circular chassis with tooled clones of the original Fuzz Face knobs in the rare and vintage turquoise hammertone finish.
Hendrix was the master of fuzz â€” an artist with many subtle shadings at his command. His love affair with the legendary Fuzz Face pedal began in the early days of the Experience and continued to evolve throughout his blazing career.
A truly playable collectible for any Hendrix or Fuzz Face fanatic. Powered by 9V battery.
