Dunlop Electronics

Founded in 1965 as a small family owned business, Dunlop Electronics grew to be a major player in everything guitar gear. Whenever you play a Dunlop Cry Baby Wah, an MXR pedal or the Tortex picks, you are playing a Dunlop Electronics product.

You might not know this, but Jim Dunlop is a true born entrepreneur! His first guitar related creation was a tuner called "Vibra-Tuner". Jim created it as he saw a need for one in the market, but despite that, the product did not succeed. Instead of quitting he got up and developed his next creations, the 1100 and 1400 capos which became a hit.

Right after came the famous Tortex picks. Since Tortex was harder than nylon, more durable than celluloid, flexible but with great memory, it became a hit among rock and metal bands like Nirvana , Metallica, Alice in Chains and more.

Then came the slides, the pedals and the rest is history. Today Dunlop Electronics provide musicians with fantastic guitar gear to make music with. in 2019 Jim Dunlop passed away but his impact on the guitar gear world will forever remains.

Dunlop Electronics Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Distortion
590_Dunlop-Electronics-Band-of-Gypsys-Fuzz-Face-Mini-Distortion.jpg

Jimi Hendrix live tone at your feet. The Dunlop Electronics FFM6 Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Distortion is the result of a long quest after the sound of Jimi Hendrix's live shows during 1969-1970. The Live at Woodstock, Live at Berkeley, and Live at the Fillmore East fuzz tone came from a mysterious red body & white knobs fuzz face which unfortunately cannot be found today. Gladly the engineers at Dunlop via trial and error found the circuit this pedal was using, and with it the FFM6 was built. Do not let that mini size trick you, the Band Of Gypsys is a hell of a Fuzz. It differs from a traditional Fuzz Face and in fact it is based on a Tycobrahe Octavia circuit. We like this pedal a lot.

Dunlop Electronics Germanium Fuzz Face Mini Distortion

As old school as fuzz gets! Before silicon transistors took over, fuzz pedals were using germanium transistors. The Dunlop Electronics Germanium Fuzz Face Mini (FFM2), as the name suggests, uses these old school germanium transistors that shaped the sound of rock. Germanium transistors are known to sound warmer than silicon ones, and clean better. The FFM2 transitions between clean-dirty-heavily fuzzed tone easily and smoothly, it sounds great and teams perfect with single coil guitars. All in all a very cool old school fuzz in a pedalboard friendly housing.

Dunlop Electronics Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion

The mini version of an epic pedal! Dunlop Electronics created this pedal board friendly version of their iconic Fuzz Face from the 1970's so you all could enjoy epic fuzz tones and save space at the same time. The distinctive, warm vintage character of the Fuzz Face enriches any effects collection and throws you back into vintage territory. The Dunlop Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion FFM1 uses BC108 silicon transistors which give the pedal an aggressive sound with a lot of brightness. We enjoyed rocking with the Silicon Fuzz Face Mini Distortion, it's great how vintage it sounds, yet so easy to use thanks to modern specs like the bright Status LED, the AC power jack and the accessible battery compartment. Be sure to compare the silicon version to the germanium one found on TonePedia.

Dunlop Electronics Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Distortion

To be like Hendrix. Jimi Hendrix's sound was not only in his fingers. During the late 1960's Hendrix used a Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face unit for his fuzz tone and this new Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Distortion is designed after it. The unit is housed in a standard size box, which is great for pedal boards. It also has an on/off led indication, true bypass and can run using a power jack, things that the vintage Fuzz Face did not have and is in fact needed. As to the layout, Dunlop kept it aligned with the old unit, two controls and maximum sound. This Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Fuzz Face Distortion is a one smooth and dynamic gain pedal which nails the old school Hendrix sound.
