Loosely based on the fuzz face circuit with the addition of a 6 position frequency selector. It is actually a hybrid. Up front it has a Germanium transistor (40 years old, pulled out of early sixties Italian keyboards) for smooth clipping and followed by a high HFE silicon transistor for power. It is an exceptionally loud pedal. You can use it on any amp and it certainly will work well with any Marshall plexi-amp, or a Vox as well. â€‹
The 2.0 board will now be "hot", which means that the moment you insert a jack in the input, you will be drawing current from the battery or adapter.
The hybrid transistor has changed to give you a more solid and powerful system. The Afro Fuzz which is designed using some of the principles of the Fuzz Face was not as loud, so it is now louder.
And lastly, you can now adjust the overall gain of the pedal by turning a thumbwheel inside the pedal which will change the bias of the transistor, thus affecting the gain. The reason once again is one of taste. The pedal also has new, sexier knobs, and new look.
