    I had one of those. It's silicon version of a Fuzz Face that Dunlop did in the 90's.

    Have one of those too from the early 90's. Sounded horrible so I built an easy face circuit and spray painted it silver.

    I still have mine. I bought it in 2000 for about $75 in almost brand new condition, I believe they go for like $220 on ebay right now. But I can agree with everyone, it definitely sounds like garbage. Now, what to replace it with?

    $220 is a little steep, $125-150 is more like it. I like the look, though. You could send it to Analogman and have him put a Sunface board in it. Then it would look AND sound cool!

    I thought $220 was a little steep myself but there was more than one for sale at around that price, from different sellers not just on ebay. The Sunface board would be a killer idea.

    I got mine around '94.
    I must be one of the only ones who thinks it has a "usable" tone ... yes, a little fizzy, but then I like a nasty fuzz at times.

    Mine's in "mint" condition. haha

    I had one back in the day, it was terrible. Very dark and fizzy. They advertised it at the time as having the mods that Hendrix's FF's had, but I don't think that is possible. Sold it very quickly. These days, with what I have learned about Fuzz Faces, I would have modded it, as it does have the cool enclosure, but IMO it was a failure.

    The Jorge Tripps version from a couple years ago (Dunlop JH-F1) is a remarkably good FF (silicon based, BC108, blue/green color).
