    Up for sale is a vintage late 1960's Kent 6400 Distorter Germanium fuzz pedal. Pedal is in amazing condition for it's age. Looks like a fuzz face based circuit inside, loaded with AC151 VI Germanium transistors. How does it sound? Pretty raunchy, compressed, and kinda gatey. This is a nasty azz fuzz tone :D

    From what I have found on the internet, these were made in Germany in the late 1960's and were marketed under the Kent, Schaller, and Hofner names.

    I have no idea if my asking price is on the low side or high side. All I know is good luck finding another one, especially in this condition. Price ~~~ GONE ~~~ shipped to USA via paypal (gift preferred, but not required). Shipping cost outside the USA will be determined by destination

    Trades? I would be interested in a hand painted ZVex Fuzz Factory, or some WCR (Jim Wagner) pickups, or a pair of Scumback M75-LD 8ohm 65watt speakers. Or feel free to offer other items up as trade... I amy say yes, I may say no, you won't know unless you ask :)

    UPDATE:
    I found some completed listing of the same fuzz branded as Schaller on eBay. My asking price of $200 seems to be appropriate.


    This one sold for $260

    edit: sorry, have no clips of this pedal

    Thanks for looking!
