    I tried it yesterday again after a long period of time. What a nice fuzz / overdrive combination! I wonder; does it still satisfy after a while or do most people replace it with a real' overdrive or a 'real' fuzz after some time?

    I still love my Fuzz Head and won't sell it, but I did replace it with a true fuzz and a true OD-pedal.

    The two pedals give me more versatility, but lack the (relatively) high-gain character, so we're working on a dual overdrive to get all shades of OD that I want.

    Nothing. The combination of tone, available volume and versatility afforded by the si/ge switch, internal trims (caps) and gain control it is unique. ymmmv

    yeah, what's up with that? HUGE ammount of volume! I don't think I ever dialed it past 10:00!

    It's a really nice pedal, that's for sure. :cool:

    The Fuzz Head is soooo good. I love it still. Just did a two fuzz head in series recording. And I realized that for the 3.5 years I've owned one, I've never maxed both knobs at once. So, did that to both fuzz heads here. But with a lowered volume on the amp the head knob is more useful than I'd previously discovered. With it maxed, the difference between the si/ge sides is really pronounced. I'd always set it to match the volume on my amp.

    I love Keeley's stuff but that is the only pedal I've ever flipped in 2 days. Just didn't ring my bell. Probably my amp....

    HBE UFO. It didn't replace it but beat it out for me to buy.

    Untill I turned the internal gain all the way up I didn't think it was living up to the promise of "Fuzz Head."

    Absolutely nothing has ever been able to replace my FuzzHead! It has become a mainstay of my main lead tones. It also does sweet powerchords, and rhythm. It is a very usefull fuzz to me and I would hate to be parted from it.
    Best Regards!

    I've been looking at one of these for awhile now...but I have a twin reverb, and the only guys that I've heard that got rid of the fuzz head are fender amp owners. Anyone played it through a twin reverb? Would my amp be too finicky with it?

    I <3 my fuzzhead soooo much... i use it stacked with an MXR overdrive, such a great lead sound. definitely for class A amps.. also turned up the internal gain but not all the way, gave it some more leeway with the knobs. i thought when i bought it i would prefer the Ge side but that is not the case.. a little too loose for my taste on that site, I usually go with the Si
