You will love it though, it's a nasty piece of work. Makes you want to keep pumping out power chords for days :crackjam:

DAmn yo, I have one of these on loan from a forumite. Super healthy low end, very nice scope. Very nice addition to the FR-69, CAp't you did good meng.

Just a quick little review on these...I've had a loaner for the past month here and my personal unit showed up in the mail yesterday. It's a really fantastic fuzz. Gainy-er and brighter than the FR-69 and obviously doesn't do the 3D thing quite as well (where you get that dark cleanish boost and the bright fuzz at the same time). Compared to my Jerms silicon fuzzrite and (from memory) other silicon fuzzrights I've played it sounds more "modern" and I mean that in a really good way! Great for chugging palm muted chordal stuff and just stands out so well, its got an ASS TON of output volume on tap and a bright cutting tone. More output volume than I've heard in any fuzzrite pedal before. The depth knob also does less of that phase cancellation thing in the middle, where you need to adjust the volume accordingly to make up for the loss as the two transistors go at it, it just gets louder and darker as you turn up the depth. At the end of the depth there is a tiny bit of cleanish bleed through and it can almost do a dark boosted type sound. Quite a versatile pedal for just two knobs. I'd think of the FR-70 as kinda its own thing...yes its based on the silicon fuzzrite but it's tweaked and tweezed to get the most range, gain, and volume possible out of the circuit. Really nice thing it is! :headbanger:

I agree, it's definitely not a one-trick pony,
much more versitile indeed!
