I have recently been introduced to this pedal and it is intriguing to me. Did a search on the site and was unable to locate anything here. Is this just a tuned germanium fuzz face or something unique?

Thanks,
George

I found these pics, they may help. Seems to be a Fuzz Face derivative using SMD's. I am nowhere close to being an expert but I'm seeing 2 Ge tranny's so assuming it's at least based on a FF.

Thanks, yes, this is the only gut pic I found myself. The maker goes on about hand selecting the right AC128s for each pedal. This along with the pic makes me tend to believe this is a FF with the gain/leakage in the builder's preferred range.

Thanks,
George
