Hot Chilicon - The Best Tone Bender Blazing Silicon Fuzz


Fuzz Face territory to all out Sustaining Fuzz God guitar solos.

Think Zep, Mountain, Walsh, Ronson, Sabbath etc.... see Demos.

This is one of my favorite and most used Fuzz pedals. You won't find a more versatile Fuzz and worry free build as well. It uses (4) 2N5089 Silicon Transistors and gains hardly seem to matter. It always sounds great!

This is also an excellent beginnner build since you do not need to Bias the transistors.

Super High Gain is available but also really cleans up nice with Guitar Volume!
