    Product Description

    You'll love this if you're a guitarist who wants to capture the classic '69-'70 Jimi Hendrix fuzz sound that was thought to be lost to history. Although Jimi may have had a short career the effect he had on the music industry will last forever. From his unique style, impressive songwriting and adventurous guitar sounds everything about Jimi impressed a generation of players.  Part of that sound is in the Dunlop Band Of Gypsys Fuzz.

    The Quest For Tone

    The secret behind his Band Of Gypsys fuzz sound form some of his most iconic shows was thought to be lost forever. Dunlop however have been working hard to find out exactly what was in his one of a kind fuzz pedal that featured a red face and white knobs. They worked out over time that the sound came from a modified Octavio circuit with the high octave removed. 

    After developing it further we finally have the true Band Of Gypsys fuzz sound available in a mini fuzz face with all of the modern trimmings.

    The Sound Of Innovation

    When Jimi first hit the stage with his version of this pedal no one could believe the sound that was coming out of his amp. It was dirty, it was heavy and had so much low end. Well now this sound can be yours. Whether you are looking for that Jimi sound or just want an extreme fuzz that has a unique sound this pedal will work great for you.

    Getting It Running

    Because this is a mini fuzz face the worries of will it fit on my board are gone! It is small enough to fit in to any rig and simple enough to get set up in seconds. You just get 2 main controls with this fuzz face volume and fuzz. Keep the fuzz low for a more subtle effect or turn it all the way up to create a mind blowing fuzz sounds that dominate the stage. Please note that this pedal works off of an AC power supply.

    Here's what Dunlop say about the Jimi Hendrix Band Of Gypsys Fuzz

    Over the course of '69-'70, Jimi Hendrix appeared at his most noted live appearances-Live at Woodstock, Live at Berkeley, and Live at the Fillmore East-using a mysterious red Fuzz Face Distortion with white knobs. That fuzz box sounded like a completely different animal from any of the other Fuzz Face pedals in Jimi's arsenal, snarling with a far more aggressive, biting tone.

    The pedal itself has been lost to history, but its unmistakably unique tone lives on in the recordings of those three iconic shows, and Hendrix aficionados have tried to cop that sound for years. We are happy to say that their tonal quest can finally come to a glorious end.

    Poring tirelessly over all of the different customized circuit designs Jimi used over the years, our engineers narrowed down this elusive fuzz tone to a version of the Octavio circuit that didn't have the octave up signal. After making a few tweaks, they nailed it with the Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Distortion.

    Now, you can get the same Fuzz Face tone Jimi used to woo the masses at some of his most famous performances. It comes in a pedalboard-friendly Fuzz Face Mini housing, complete with an AC power jack and an on/off status LED.

    Very impressed with the Band of *****’s fuzz - I have owner other silicon fuzz pedals (Fulltone 70, Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz) and this is my favourite so far - definitely nails the Hendrix Band of *****’s sound, cleans up pretty well and works well with a Wah. Found it also sounds great paired with other fuzz pedals - getting a great sound together with my Analogman Germanium Sunface.

    This pedal is great, I bought this after watching YouTube demos and this was my favourite sounding mini fuzz face. It responds really well to dynamics and is great value for money.

    Great sounding pedal, a bit different to the regular fuzz face. Built like a tank in a pedalboard friendly size.
