The latest FF gets its snarl from using two rare, Russian GT308V germanium transistors.

Minneapolis, MN (August 13, 2018) -- What makes this pedal special? As many of you know, we only had a limited supply of transistors for the classic teal Fuzz Factory 7. We've finally come to the end of them and that version is finished. We thought we were done with this product when Zack found some new Russian transistors that work beautifully in the FF7. Our art department created an impressive new design and the new Russian Fuzz Factory 7 was born! So what makes this so special, let's let Zack tell you...

"Germanium transistors. What makes them so special? It’s because they turn on faster. Sooner. They get turned on way quicker than any other transistors. Yeah, I got a favorite transistor, the shiny fragile amazing mosfet, but the germanium bipolar and somewhat easily startled and delicate germanium that loves getting turned on is my most memorable transistor. Enjoy. She’s waiting for you, respectable and wonderful, the happiest of all semiconductors, the most delicate and perfect."

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
