How do they compare? I found against the DF it really gives it a run for the money, massive low end and a mighty rumble :freakout:
We'll both sound massive...FH still has a more vintage vibe, slightly looser and clearer sounding. Kind of like ge vs si Fuzz Face....Shrew is tighter in the low end,less midrange push with a bit more sizzle and bite which makes it come over more aggressive.

The FH cleans up extremely well, it's a schizo MKII that thinks it's a FF. Shrew doesn't really get clean but it turns into an amazing thick Skynyrd like dirty blues machine with great dynamics to how you attack it.
Smooth, dynamic, fluid violin like sustain, amp like characteristics, warm organic tonez - nope. A blind wolverine on PCP flying a fully loaded B-52 into the side of a volcano, the soundtrack to said event would be Stand Up and Shout by Dio - yes.

Right on! Very cool to see the Mester Stringer artworks side by side.
Will Mr Fuzz pope ever create (again) any other artwork for your future projects Dave?
We've talked about it. It's a possibility.

No003. Thunderous low end yet very musical. Another masterpiece :party:
