Fulltone 70BC Classic 70s Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal

When a Fuzz Face Frowns

The original Fuzz Face has become a thing of legend. It sprung onto the scene in the late ‘60s and was readily adopted by a number of players, most notably, one Mr. Jimi Hendrix. In the early days, the Fuzz Face came powered by a pair of Germanium transistors. These gave the original units a deep, snarling tone with a considerable amount of warmth and musicality. One of the main issues with them, however, was they were incredibly unreliable. This unreliability was a major driving force behind the decision to tear out the heart of the existing Fuzz Face and replace it with a far more consistent, yet considerably angrier alternative.

Enter the Silicon

As alluded to earlier, Germanium was the transistor of choice in the early days of the Fuzz Face. It is a beautiful component but it is prone to mood swings and temper tantrums. Things as inconsequential as differing climates and room temperatures were enough to cause them to behave completely differently or not work at all. Understandably, for professional musicians, that is not an ideal situation within which to find oneself.

A change was needed. That change came in the form of Silicon. This new fangled material was a marvel. A material which wouldn’t even blink when confronted with any of the scenarios which would cause a Germanium transistor to go into a nosedive. Stability was the primary goal of switching to this new material but it wasn’t the only effect that was achieved. Silicon, it turns out, is much more aggressive and intense of a producer of fuzz. It sputters and spits and bites. The days of smooth, natural, organic fuzz were replaced by a rabid, snarling beastly distant cousin.

Predictable Madness

Fulltone has gone to extraordinary lengths to capture the maniacal growl of the Fuzz Faces from that later era. One of the 70BC’s main forefathers is none other than Eric Johnson’s original blue Fuzz Face from that era. Mr Fuller (the owner of Fulltone effects) managed to get his hands on that glorious piece of tonal royalty and dissect it to find out its secrets (a good few of which are incorporated into the design of the 70BC).

This insider look at an unquestionably gorgeous example of one of the old ‘70s Fuzz Faces is the icing on top of an already delicious cake. The 70BC uses a pair of intentionally mismatched Silicon transistors which helps the pedal to sputter and spit with the utmost authenticity.


The 70BC has three controls through which to wrangle your sound. Volume sets the master output level of the pedal. Fuzz sets the amount of gain or fuzz present in the circuit. Be aware, this pedal is ferocious. There is a lot of fuzz on tap and winding the control up to 10 is an absolute bombardment of unstable, vicious tone. Lastly there is a mid control which serves as a chain link leash around the pedals neck. You can use the mids control to dial in some extra clarity and control that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.

Broody Vintage Fuzz

This is not a pedal for the faint of heart. Although there is warmth and clarity in the tone, its at its best when turned up way past the point of any sense. This is a pedal to let loose at full pelt. Shoot first, ask questions later. For fans of the softer, earlier Fuzz Face tone, the 69 mkII from Fulltone is definitely worth checking out. But for those of you who want to get a snarlier version of the classic tone, this is the pedal for you.

Fulltone 69 mkII 60s Classic Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal The Ideal Fuzz Face When it comes to immortal fuzz tones, very few things spring to mind more readily than Jimi Hendrix and one of his various Stratocasters screaming through a Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face. Those utterly revolutionary, Earth shattering tones which first hit people�s eardrums on Jimi�s first two releases have stayed in the minds of guitarists ever since the �60s. The only trouble is the original Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Faces he would have been playing through from that era are, at this point, unbelievably hard to find, exorbitantly expensive, and incredibly unreliable. This drought for authentic vintage sounding fuzz pedals has caused a number of manufacturers to offer up their idea of the perfect �60s Fuzz Face tone. Fulltone�s offering comes in the form of the 69 mkII and a damn fine offering it is too! Germanium The key to nailing the classic raw tone of the original Fuzz Face pedals that Jimi was howling through in the late �60s is the Germanium transistors at its heart. The type of transistors that fuzz pedals of that vintage relied upon came in a few different flavours but Germanium is the key ingredient to nail the �60s recipe. Fulltone have gone to extraordinary lengths to source the highest quality components they can for the 69 mkII. Each of the Germanium transistors in each of their pedals are hand-picked and tested to ensure they perform with total accuracy and authenticity. Only the best will do.  One of the major benefits to Germanium fueled fuzzes is the organic, natural behaviour they exhibit. They can obviously snarl and swing crazily out of control when necessary but they can also straighten up, tread lightly, and deliver some of the most beautiful clean tones that you can think of. They respond really prettily to the volume control on your guitar. Rolling it back and delivering a quieter offering lets the pedal breath and offer up a low powered, crystal clear clean tone with dynamics, harmonics, and precision in abundance. Controls The 69 mkII comes with twice the amount of control knobs than the original Dallas Arbiter FuzzFace which enables you to tailor it far more accurately to the perfect fuzz sound in your head. The volume control sets the master volume of the pedal and the fuzz control sets the amount of gain present. These are the controls one might expect based on the original. Fulltone, however, has added two more to massively increase the 69 mkII�s versatility. The first of the new controls is the �input� control. This knob allows you to control the amount of input bias which can be used to set the amount of �woofiness� in the pedal. Basically, the more you reduce the �woofiness� the tighter it becomes and the more like a traditional overdrive or distortion the pedal will behave. Dial it back up to step back into the thick vibe of the 60�s. The second control is the contour knob which acts as a quasi tone control. It allows you to dial in the midrange, sustain, and harmonics all at once. This further helps to nail the ideal tone and powerfully shape the overall character of the pedal to help it sing no matter what guitar or amp you are playing through. Fuzz Face for the People If you are looking for an accurate original Fuzz Face tone without needing to apply for a small mortgage in order to afford an original, the 69 mkII from Fulltone might just be the answer to your prayers. For super authentic late-�60s fuzz tones, along with a wide range of other flavours of fuzz and even distortion, this is one of the best choices out there. Why Bonners? Here at Bonners Music you have the opportunity to try one of these great Fulltone effects pedals yourself. Just give us a call on 01323 636141 or better still, visit our showroom!
