    I must share as I'm so impressed and wanted to convey my appreciation as well.

    Awhile back, as our own pickdropper, owner of Function f(x), announced a mini Clusterfuzz incoming, I decided to inquire about a two-in-one, of sorts, consisting of this new mini Clusterfuzz and the octave fuzz side of their The Cannon. Both of these fuzzes have been long-time staples of Gary Clark Jr's pedalboard. I run a small board, hence my inquire.
    Dave (pickdropper) was super responsive and willing to explore this option. We went back and forth with just a couple PMs and he and I found we were on the same page. He inquired on some cosmetics and put forth a very fair price. He quoted some build time due to backlog but delivered ahead of schedule.
    Amazing fuzz! Both run independently. You can turn the octave on of off with the toggle. So many tones between the 8-Bit, Tone and Fuzz knob on the Clusterfuzz side.

    Was wonderful to work with Dave and I wish I had more 'needs' at this time but my board is pretty much done (five pedals, one is a tuner).

    Don't hesitate to check on what Dave and Function f(x) are doing. Great company.

    I second your praise! My recent experience with Dave getting a Clusterfuzz Micro went equally as well. My 3rd function f(x) fuzz, no complaints with any of them. Good company making good stuff.

    Yep. He does amazing work. :D

    Here’s mine. It’s a miniaturized MidFi Clari(not) Fuzz Version with an added fuzz lift switch to turn it into the Clean Version.

    I recently ordered a Minitaur, then a Clusterfuzz Micro from Dave. Both great pedals and the Minitaur has proved a superb replacement for a Centura which I really dug but took up too much board space.

    I'm huge fan of Function f(x), and also recently ordered some of Dave's mini builds - he was an absolute gent to work with, and his craftsmanship is incredible.

    I’ve got several of Dave’s pedals, including my “signature model” MacGuffin overdrive, and all are top notch. I’m also lucky to know Dave IRL, and it’s always cool shooting the crap with him about pedals and gear in general.
    My Clusterfuzz Micro is literally the only fuzz I’ve ever liked, and it’ll be a staple of my board no matter what direction I go.

    Recent convert and lucky enough to get one of the micros directly last week. Super easy to deal with and pedal is killer. It’s super versatile and sounds great at any fuzz level.

    I first heard the name from the macguffin pedal which is one of the coolest looking pedals ever. I’d love to have a custom job at some point like that.

    Must be some of the cleanest guts I've seen in pedals.

    I just traded for a Gate Crasher, which was meant to arrive today- except we left town to visit family for a few days. :(

    That pink one looks rad, @Kilometers Davis !

    Thanks! It’s actually one of the prototypes.
