Ok so the deal is this.....the pedal came today! And....I am freaked out by how awesome this is. I have never owned a fuzz before, and I don't know how I went this long without one. This sucker does riffs, open chords, power chords, bar chords, lead you name it. Everything gets fattened up in a big smooth way. Perfect for those of us who like to play greasy dirty muddy sloppy rock. Woo Hoo! Of course I am still having fun with it, but it can cover everything from 'My Head's in Mississippi' to 'hey hey, my my'....I'm sure playing with this gizzy will never get old.... Can't really compare this to the regular peppermint fuzz except to say that I really like the color of the box for the dark a heck of a lot better. All in all I am satisfied as hell!!!!!
