It sure gets fuzzier than most, if not all, Astro's. This one gets just fuzzy enough I think. Solid territory and cuts pretty dang well. It has an input gain control that when it gets above 2 o'clock is very fuzzy with the fuzz knob above 2 o'clock as well. Of course it can go all the way down to OD territory too. High cut knob controls the top at lower gain. I dig it. Especially since I didn't have an Astro in my collection. I like how it's tuned. Can get very warm if you want it to. Solid.
