Dunlop Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face

The Legendary Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Box in Sturdy Case

When you talk about classic fuzz, you probably mean the sound of the legendary Fuzzface in most cases. Before a clean amp, it can cut quite nicely (though thanks to the germanium transistors, it is never as annoying as various other distortions), but before an already distorted sound, the sun really rises. Jimi sends his regards!

  • Circuit with germanium PNP transistors that produce the typical warm fuzz tone
  • Foot switch for bypass
  • Controls for volume and fuzz intensity

Dunlop Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face Review
João P., 25.01.2014
Features:
Germanium PNP transistor
Vintage specs
Volume knob
Fuzz level knob

Simple as the Democratic Party. Just Volume And Fuzz. Sweet... Fat... Fuzzz... Oh! It does not have a 9v adapter only 9v battery, but if you unplug it after use it will last about 2 months.
Sound: Yes You do get some hum out of it but this is rock 'n roll. It has germanium transistors which are temp sensitive so you can play all day put it down, go and come play again and it will sound a bit different. You just have to play around with it. Roll down the volume on the guitar you get a wind cries mary live at Monterey sound. Roll it up and you get a thick low end fuzz.

Une bonne Fuzz comme on aime
Caleb Followill, 04.06.2011
On m'a toujours vanté la Fuzz Face comme étant une des pédales de fuzz les plus performantes du marché , alors j'ai décidé de tester !
Avant tout, je l'utilise sur basse !
Je dois dire que le son est tout à fait impressionnant ; en augmentant bien les graves, le son obtenu est très gras, et pas du tout clinquant comme on peut parfois l'entendre sur d'autres Fuzz de ce type.

Bémol cependant au niveau de l'ergonomie ; la qualité de fabrication, et notamment à l'intérieur de la pédale est très sommaire. Je veux bien que ce soit une pédale dans le style d'époque, mais la pile à remettre à chaque fois parce qu'elle se balade dans le corps de la pédale, les fils qui partent dans tous les sens... L'ergonomie est donc à revoir, et notamment avec un adaptateur secteur qui ferait le plus grand bien !
Sinon au niveau du son donc, rien à redire, c'est du béton !
L'utilisation aussi est très intuitive ; deux boutons ; aucunes fioritures ! ça envoie du pâté !

ginge besser - und doch noch happy end...
Gary W., 11.09.2013
Dieses Gehäuse sieht toll aus!

Allerdings fand ich dafür leider den Sound etwas dumpf und enttäuschend. Ich bastele selber das ein oder andere Fuzz, und weiß daher, wozu die Dinger fähig sind.

Diese kleine Platine mit Transistoren, die nicht der ursprünglichen Bestückung entsprechen, jedenfalls eher nicht. Für mich war dann klar, dass ich die originale Schaltung einbaue (sind nur wenige Bauteile) - und siehe da, es klingt jetzt super!

Leider ging auch noch das Gummi-Teil um die "Nase" des Face ab. Sei's drum - ist repariert. Für meine "Zweckentfremdung" hat sich die Anschaffung trotzdem gelohnt.
