A very powerful fuzz.
The sound is very reminiscent of the 60's-70's era fuzz. It has a very good high end boost when the tone is fully up almost a ringmod feel if you will. I like it set to about 3/4 o'clock personally as it makes your tone sharp, without sounding like a tin can being sawed in half. It is very warm on full sustain giving a massive glow to your leads with a neck pickup engaged. It does not sound as awesome with the tone on the 6-12 o'clock settings as it makes a very bassy tone in that aspect, but I myself do not like a lot of bass in my tone so I would chalk up that up to personal distaste. Other then that it is great for blues, hard rock, super awesome for lead playing, and it also has a very doom metal sound to it as well. If you are looking for more of a 90's fuzz sound a'la The Smashing Pumpkins or Melvins I reccomend the Od muff reissue it has a more mid range to low frequency, and does not favor the high end like the triangle.
The features are all standard. I would have like it to have a gain contol on it, but the sustain seems to act as one on its own. I reccomend tuning it down if yoyr finding your fuzz to be too fizzy.
Ease of Use
This product is very easy to use. If you like an aggressive Treble ended fuzz this pedal is yoyr friend. It only took me 5 minutes to get the sound I wanted.
It is made very well. All American, no loose parts, and the knobs are on very snug. The only thing cosmetically is that it is a bit boring in terms of color/design, but it makes up for it with the color it adds to ones tonality so it really is no matter.
EHX's reputation I believe speaks for itself.
The Wow Factor
I dont think I cam ever stop using this pedal. It is now my essential fuzz, and will most likley what I use for all the rest my years to come. I would not want to write without it now.
