fuzzface

If filthy fuzz is your game, this cheeky stomp may well be your future Hall of Famer.

Cool variety of extreme/deviant fuzz tones. Nice dynamic capability at low gain settings. Fair price.

High gain settings can sacrifice articulation and introduce susceptibility to radio-frequency interference.

What's with the cheeky name and graphics on Acorn Amplifiers' F#%k Face? Long story short: In 1989, the Fleer baseball-card company "accidentally" printed a short-lived card featuring Bill Ripken (Hall of Famer Cal Jr.'s less-known brother), hoisting a bat with "Fuck Face" scrawled on its butt. Besides being funny, the tie-in is that F#%k Face is inspired by the famous round 2-knob fuzz favored by Hendrix, Gilmour, and Eric Johnson—only it ups its progenitor's gain ante with three stages of filth courtesy of three 2N3904 silicon transistors.
