The tone of the Reuss Purple Faze is everything you'd desire from a FF type of fuzz. Warm, responsive, beautifully textured, cleans up when rolling back your volume knob. The pedal works both for full-on fuzz tones and as a relatively mild drive at modest settings. It's a super useful tool. The big advantage of the NPN transistors is that these allows the original, un-modified circuit to be built with modern power polarity (negative ground), for flawless integration with a modern pedalboard power supply. A huge advance over vintage pedals (and modern clones) which are usually made with PNP transistors and features reverse power polarity - which can cause all sorts of issues.

Features and specifications:

  • - True to vintage germanium fuzz circuit based on the FF, built with carefully matched vintage new old stock OC140 NPN germanium transistors (personally matched by myself) 
  • - Pedalboard friendly negative ground powered (contrary to vintage pedals which had reverse polarity) 
  • - Compact aluminium enclosure in a "cosmic purple" metallic powder coat finish with yellow silk screen printed graphics 
  • - Upgrade quality footswitch (good for at least 50000 stomps) 
  • - High quality Neutrik jacks, wired by hand 
  • - Powder coated and silk screen printed aluminium enclosure
