There are a lot of '70 pedals out there. I think some will try and sell their's at a high price. Then it will eventually settle down and return to normal prices.

I hope this doesn't happen. I want my '70 to be crazy high prices.

Its a decent pedal.
But there are SOOOOOOOO Many Sci FF types out there that are as good or better.
No big loss IMO.

I've got a purple one. Bought it used at Long&McQuade about 9 years ago I think. It still has the felt pen marks that the previous owner used to mark his settings. I love it. I prefer silicon fuzzfaces to germanium it seems. They seem to cut through better and are more aggressive...but still vintage and cool. They clean up from the guitar knob pretty nicely (but don't go full clean like a Ge fuzzface) so I can have many shades of teh fuzz. Works great with almost any amp I've had as long as there are some greenbacks in a closed back cab. It can be a bit hissy or splatty with some other speakers I find.

Maybe, but it's not a classic circuit design, so it doesn't fall in the same category.
that's true, it's not a classic circuit design but it's definetely a winner, you can get classic fuzzface tones out of it.

I don't think the used market will react the way it did for the '69 because Si fuzzes are generally considered to have less mojo than the Ge's, partly due I think to the difficulty in sourcing good Ge transistors. They've also been in production for a long time and there are lots of Si fuzzes out there. Having said all this, I love my 70 Pedal and am keeping it as my only Si fuzz.

And as far as the next pedal from Fuller goes, I periodically check his site for new products ... with genuine anticipation and excitement.

Foxrox, Monsterpiece, Analogman, Hartman, MJM heck even the Dunlop JH reissue is decent.
The 70' is decent pedal i enjoyed it but i found the Monsterpiece and the Foxrox to be better for IMO.
The mid control is kinda a good selling point but not a make or break.

I'm really surprised there hasn't been a buying frenzy on these, at least on ebay. I guess they really don't sell that well, which is why they're being discontinued, I'm sure. I a/b'd one against my ge London Fuzz, and they were closer than I thought they'd be so I decided against one (this was before they were discontinued). I was actually hoping it would be brighter and less wooley since it's silicon, but they had a very similar wool factor.
