Fuzz Face Mini Pedals From Dunlop

Shipping this February will be these smaller yet just as potent Fuzz Face pedals from Dunlop. The first thing we notice about these pedals is their ability to fit much more easily onto a pedal-board.  They all run off battery power, and are now all true bypass, so when they’re off, they’re not sucking tone and volume from your signal.

FFM1 Silicon Fuzz Face Mini

Presenting with matched BC108 silicon transistors, this pedal is modeled after a 1970 Fuzz Face that Dunlop says is aggressive and bright.

FFM2 Germanium Fuzz Face Mini

This one is modeled after the ’66 thru ’68 pre-silicone Fuzz Face pedals, known for that warmer tone – which comes from marginally mismatched transistors.

FFM3 Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Mini

This comes with the same electronics as the JHF1, in the newer, smaller form factor. It’s got that smooth Fuzz tone that Hendrix loved.

EVH95 35th Anniversary Wah

EVH95 35th Anniversary Wah PedalCelebrating the 35th Anniversary of Eddie Van Halen’s arrival on the music scene, the EVH95 Wah has a bit of a different color, and the same custom designed inductor and pot combination that Dunlop and Eddie Van Halen cooked up together.

This pedal has a custom “sweep” that Dunlop discovered while looking at some of Eddie’s old wah pedals. It turns out that the particular mid-range that he played in most on the sweep of the pedal was more worn than the rest of the range.

These wahs are modeled after what Dunlop learned from this, providing more low end sweep and a better defined mid-range.

Like most Dunlop pedals these days, the EVH95 35th Anniversary Wah comes with a true hard wired bypass.

For The Bassist

MXR M83 Bass Chorus

Dunlop has presented the bass player with a few options this year as well.

The MXR M83 Bass Chorus pedal delivers very crisp and watery chorus, and comes with flange effects as well, and the X-Over mode decreases modulation in the in lower frequencies which helps out with playing chords, melodies or solos.

It also comes with a TRS (Tip Ring Sleeve) out, so you can use a splitter, and run your signal through two different amps, which allows your modulation to move from left to right in stereo.

MXR M89 Bass Overdrive

It’s tube-like,  very warm and just the right amount of overdrive to kick your bass sound right to the front of the mix, or stage. It’s got Volume, Tone, and Overdrive controls so you can dial in that sound that’s perfect for you. One more knob – a clean control so you can blend a clean signal in with whatever overdrive tone you’ve got dialed in.
