    I've made a search, next to no results, there was a thread from 2007 with four replies, two of which by the OP.

    A few years later, what is everyone thinking about this pedal? I can get one in trade, sight unseen, posted from far away. Normally I either play with a clean (lightly compressed) sound, or go for a synthy tone by combining an octaver, envelope filter and some sort of distortion/fuzz. Have used an MXR BlowTorch for this before.

    Has anyone had any valuable experience with the SD yellow pedal? Would it be good for what I described above? How is it for other kinds of useful tones?

    I have no personal experience with the Tweak Fuzz, but I've seen a schematic. :) Looks to be a fairly standard two-transistor fuzz pedal similar to the Fuzz Face - the "tweak" knob simply selects between different values of input capacitors. It will definitely be a FUZZ and not an overdrive. The Tweak knob may make it more useful on bass than a normal fuzz would be.

    They were recently discontinued.
     
  3. I have a tweak fuzz that was given to me by a guitarist friend because I used it one day while jamming with him and he said that it sounded way better with bass as opposed to guitar, I guess he wasn't happy with it. I like though! it has a very gritty sound when the gain is turned way up, but at the same time it can be adjusted for a more subtle fuzz sound. it was a no brainer for me because it was free, but try checking out YouTube maybe
