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
