    DAYUM! That pedal looks, well, godly. Again, I find myself buying fuzz pedals, even though I know they're not for me :( .

    Let's see how many people like their battery going dead all the time. This is just plain strange they put an external power jack for the LED only and the fuzz is run with a battery and to turn the battery off you have to pull the input which is located on the side smack against the pedal next it. So every time you want to play the thing you have to rip it off the board plug it in and the opposite if you ever remember to unplug it. Sorry might sound like god himself but that sounds like the work of the devil.

    I know what you mean, but I'd just plan on buying batteries in bulk, and not bothering to unplug the input when i'm not using it. I think its just silly to not have a pedal powered by an adapter, in this day and age.

    I have no idea how it'll turn out (and yes the lack of running it off an adapter is stupid) but that is easily the best ad for a pedal I've ever seen. Actually the battery thing is a large annoyance...I'd consider buying it for novelty sake even but I run all my pedals from either a Dunlop Brick or a Pedal Power 2 (which is why my vintage pedals just sit on a storage shelf).

    Funny that most of the people in the world would tell us guitar players the same thing about tubes. Why use them in this day and age?

    Any good fuzz I've ever played sounds better with a battery than with an adapter. More fuzz, warmer, more dynamic, better envelope, better sustain, more girthiness.

    Do you want better tone or more conveniece? You decide.

    Better tone but I haven't noticed that fuzzes sound better with batteries, especially the dead battery sound.

    They could have put in an on/off switch like Analog Mike offers for his Sunface.

    There are many types of fuzzes and it's not true for all of them.

    You know, there is always the option of simply using a battery snap 9v adapter with your power supply...battery problem solved. Better yet, if you have the option on your supply, use the sag outlet.

    There are very few drive pedals of any kind (including fuzz)
    IMO that don't sound better with a battery.

    Chances are the builder felt this way about this curcuit or it would
    run off the adaptor he already took the trouble to install.

    An off switch on one of the knobs however is a nice idea.

    This looks like a nice fuzz,I'd like to hear it.

    +1000 for SOMEONE to put the ON/OFF into one of the knobs...most likely Volume...but SOMEWHERE. This is NOT rocket science.

    I've drilled small holes and installed tiny bat switches (like the little ones on Zvex and Fulltone pedals) so I can turn the battery off, put it into bypass and NOT have to yank out the input plug.

    That too works really well as if I forget to turn it off more fool me but at least I don't have to jump through hoops of fire and ripping things apart just to turn off the juice and save battery life.

    My .02 cents :NUTS
