    Holy timbits, this pedal soars on bass. I am completely impressed by this desktop effect.
    2 x 9v batteries is pretty cool too.
    Grabbed this from a client to resell if for them and ended up buying it myself.
    (I sell gear for pickers outside the realm of audio gear know how and in exchange I get TONS of gear to try out and film for our 2019 vintage gear youtube series.
    Anyway...I was curious if any TB'ers have used this pedal on Bass.
    I am running it with lots of Crunch from the Sound City 120 R and am completely floored by the combination of these.
    I am playing a active Ibanez SR390. Really slick bass that turns some heads :)

    History of my obsession with Fuzz. I am hard pressed to say there are many effects made before 2010 that I did not try out.

    Very cool. Is that the one that gets the tuba sound? I recently watched a video on a maestro fuzz pedal that gets that sound but can't remember what it was called. Or where I saw it.

    Maestro Fuzz-Tone FZ-1 is the pedal you are thinking of. Great pedal as well.
    I think there is a reissue of this pedal but have not seen a reissue first hand.
