recently i have been looking for a fuzz pedal to allow me to try and capture the tone of the legend that is jimi hendrix, many people said fuzz face but its just too expensive but today i found this

the main hendrix tone i love is purple haze and this seems like the pedal i need for that, is it any good?

cheers, jimbleton

The new Octavio reissues are supposed to be pretty good. I saw a video of Satriani, and he's using one on his pedalboard now.

Keep in mind that Hendrix didn't even really use that pedal that much. If you're looking for his normal fuzz tone in Purple haze, that's not going to give it to you. It's more for the far out sound in Purple Haze.

That's also supposed to be a good reissue. Uses silicon transistors, like Jimi did on his later stuff.

Oooh...for some reason, when I clicked on it first...It showed me a picture of the new Octavios...Which are in the same price range as that Fuzz Face. My bad.

I don't know anything about that black one...But because it's an octave fuzz, I'm going to say it's not suitable.

Have you looked into boutique European pedal makers? There's bound to be quite a few.

If you want an octave fuzz, this guy might work for you: http://buildyourownclone.com/octavefuzz.html

Not sure if they ship to europe or not, but it's a simple enough circuit to build yourself, plus it allows you to turn off the octave effect if you so wish.

They also have a clone of the Fuzz Face: http://buildyourownclone.com/fuzz.html
