i was plopping a battery in yesterday and noticed the transistors are unmarked. they are squatty little chrome cylinders with a tab off the bottom to identify one of the leads i imagine. they are the same as this old '69 from another thread: i've seen some modern "NKT-275" and some others with unfamiliar names, but these little cans are blank. any ideas? anyway, the pedal sounds pretty amazing so far. i've had analogman red dots, white-dots, MJM's, and the bonomassa. compared to what i've had, the fulltone is obviously more tweakable. its fuzz sound is rawer and spittier than any of the other fuzzes, and it has a slight octave-up in the "jimi" region of the fretboard (around 12th fret high-three strings). anyone else have a bit of octave in their '69's? i'm really enjoying the nastiness and organic nature of the effect; i don't like high-gain usually, but this pedal gives high-gain a very natural, "neil young at philmore east" kind of drive. i found the analogman fuzz's too well-behaved in a lot of ways, though they sound great. . .the '69 definitely reintroduces a bit of unpredictability and "fun" back into the FF world.
