Pedalboard.org Workshop: Heaven and Hell – The Fuzz Face

The Fuzz Face is a standard on many pedalboards for a reason. Well made and used, its sound is great: direct, extremely flexible in the range of distortions it produces, and stylistically more versatile than you might think. However, unlike other distortion and even fuzz circuits, it presents the user with a whole host of rather unique problems that can drive a novice, in particular, to the edge of frustration. The workshop will present the most common pitfalls and possible solutions to successfully use a fuzzface in your own setup.
