Stompnorth's Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is based on the classic silicon Fuzz Face circuit popularised by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and David Gilmour.
Built around low-noise, sweet-sounding foil capacitors, this very useable fuzz takes the Fuzz Face circuit and beefs it up with some very welcome extra features.
Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner Controls
A/B Toggle The A/B toggle not only switches between brighter and livelier, and mellow "vintage" frequency response; it also alters the dynamics of the entire pedal.
Bias The Bias control enables you to adjust the response of the BC108 silicon transistors, providing access to a range of fuzz tones plus a gated, dying battery character. Turned all the way down, you get bucket-loads of bass and thick, wooly fuzz. Turned all the way up is glitchy and spitty.
Fuzz The Fuzz control sets the overall level of fuzz and interacts with the other controls.
If you love the Fuzz Face sound (and let's be honest, who doesn't?!), the Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is the pedal for you!

Awesome vintage sounding, quality built little fuzz pedal. It can add a subtle warm fuzz or full on fuzziness, especially if you pair it with a dirt pedal. The owner of Boost Guitar Pedals was kind enough to send me some sound samples before I bought it. Would recommend :)
