    I've been thinking of grabbing one of these.
    Has anyone got one and compared it to the regular Fuzz War? Is there many more 'useable' tones in there that would justify owning it over a standard Fuzz War or Fuzz Warr Overload?

    Kind of wish the dip switches were on the outside. I have a Apocalypse and use the Fuzz War mode the most.

    Get it and I will buy it from you if you do not like it.

    Looks to be a standard run of the old John Dwyer Thee Fuzz War.

    Interesting, I didn't know about these! It sounds like the 'boost' can be made more useable with the dip switches. It didn't do much for me on the Overload version

    Yeah, I have the Overload version and have always wanted more out of the boost side. It's completely unusable. Hoping this would be the answer.

    I have the Super Fuzz War and so far I'm not finding much utility in the boost side. It's got a raspy, high-pitch fuzzy edge to it that doesn't appeal to me. I was expecting more of a pure clean boost but with EQ via the dip switches.

    Take that with a grain of salt because I don't play in a band where I need to kick on some volume for solos. I'm just a bedroom player.

    I can't say enough good things about the Fuzz War itself though, sooooooo good. I'm going to keep the Super and continue to try different dip switch settings on the boost to see if I can find something I like. In the (one?) demo video of the boost, there was a switch that made it sound pretty awesome. I'm still trying to find that setting!
