    Was just wondering what some equivalents are to the Fulltone 70 pedal??

    Maybe something a little cheaper even?

    Thanks!

    Boss FZ 3. Sounds VERY good with the right stuff.

    I'm curious - why do you want an equivalent - is cost the main reason?

    I merely ask because I think the '70 is a great pedal as-is.

    I agree, and they can be found used pretty inexpensively. Built like a tank, too!

    i'd love a fulltone 70, but i don't think i have that much money... even though they are not a bad price.

    i'm trying to sell a older boss sd-1 with 4558 chip and use that money for a fuzz pedal.

    Agreed. A Blue 70 pedal just sold on ebay for a $100 BIN. Great deal for a great pedal and I hesitated too long.:jo

    Look for a Silicon Fuzz face. Lots of builders making these. You may striike it lucky on Ebay or HC. Everyone tweaks the circuit a bit differently.

    You're probably not going to find one for much less than $75. If the Fulltone 70 is what you want, why not just wait till you've saved for what you want.

    Dude, I have a brand new Fulltone '70 for sale; $120. This things the best! Remember, it's based on mods Jimi had Roger Mayer do to his own fuzz face. What's that tell you? There are no equivalents!
