Just got this in the mail yesterday... I already got to take it to my drummer's and see how she sounds. So...

First off, this thing is butt-ugly. I believe the design was drawn up during a car crash, or maybe a building collapse. Second the construction is terrible. The "metal" used feels cheaper than the old Dano plastic, and pushing the button recquires a real umph. The switches are unbelievably difficult to see/adjust with any accuracy. Also its orange...

The sound, on the other hand, is pretty damn good for $30. On the lower settings it can get close to the CREAM sound for smooth bluesy solo's, but not nearly as loose. Crank up the fuzz a bit and you've got Queens of the Stone Age type stoner-rock fuzz/distortion. I was hoping to get a little bit more sloppy, loose, wet fuzz out of it, but I'm pretty happy with the distortion type sounds I can get. Also this thing is LOUD. Feedback is inevitable (I couldn't be happier about that.)

I had been looking at this for a month or so, and never got a real good review so I hope this helps some cheap bastards like myself who are saying, "Why should I drop $75 on a Big Muff when I can get the CF-1 for $30?"

Conclusion: If you want a very specific vintage fuzz tone out of this thing, keep saving. If you, like me, just get sick of overdrive/distortion tones and want a looser, creamier gain tone, go for it.

The Cool Cat is a pretty cool fuzz, especially for the price... have any of you guys tried the French Toast? That one is absolute insanity.

Ya my next purchase is either an octave or a delay... not sure yet. French Toast looks pretty cool, but I was impatient and wanted my fuzz NAO!
