hey guys, i recieved my big muff yesterday after much debate between the fuzz face and big muff. I have to say, i don't like the big muff pi, the sound is wayyyy to compressed and it sounds a little digital. So anyways im selling it and getting the fuzz face which i love and i dont knwo why i didnt buy before the big muff, oh well.
Okay, now i have a question, ive been checkin the fuzz face online and i am not really sure what kind of AC adapter i am suppossed to use with it. Every website mentions the Dunlop ECB-201 AC Jump but i dont seem to find it anywhere, Do any of you guys have this pedal and have the AC adapter? if so which adapter are you guys using? and where did you find it, cause i dont want to be buying batteries every week.
thank you very much

Don't get the Dunlop Fuzz Face, it's crap. I used to have one, sent it back straight away, it wasn't toneful at all, just overly bassy.

Now I've got a Roger Mayer Classic Fuzz (It's a fuzz face clone). It's the PERFECT fuzz face for me. T'was £120, but well worth it if you're looking for classic fuzz face sounds.

You haven't even tried one? Try one. Or just go straight for the good stuff.

Try that_pink_queen's fuzz face (he's a member on the board), it's a fuzz face built to vintage specs, and only like $80. The only disadvantage is that if you don't like it, there won't be much you can do, as he won't take returns and it'll have low resale value.

If you want to hear the Fuzz Face also listen to David Gilmour.

I heard the reissues and older ones sounded different due to a change in parts forgot which part but it did change sound to the later made ones.

Listen to Foxey Lady (Hendrix).

Well, the Dunlop one is about £100, and the Roger Mayer is £20 more. It's worth it to spend more, you're getting a much better quality handbuilt pedal, and it sounds so much better.

Have you compared that to a Zvex Fuzz Factory? I know they aren't really the same type of fuzz, but I have no opportunity to try any Roger Mayer stuff (no shops around here have them ).

There was a Fuzz Factory in the same shop where I bought it, but I didn't try it out.

I should have though...
