Get the same Fuzz Face tone Jimi used to woo the masses at some of his most famous performances.

Packed into an MXR mini housing, the Jimi Hendrix ’68 Shrine Series "Band of Gypsys" Fuzz from Dunlop is based on a mysterious Fuzz Face Distortion that Jimi Hendrix used at several iconic shows between 1969 and 1970, most notably the Band of Gypsys performance. Red with white knobs, this particular fuzz sounded like a completely different animal from any of the other Fuzz Face pedals in his arsenal, snarling with an aggressive, biting tone. The pedal itself has been lost to history, but its unmistakably unique sound lives on in recordings. Dunlop engineers narrowed the sound down to a version of the Octavio circuit that didn't have that pedal's famous octave-up effect. After making a few tweaks, they nailed it with the Band of Gypsys Fuzz Face Mini Distortion. 

This special edition of the Band of Gypsys Fuzz pays tribute to the legendary Jimi Hendrix with a custom finish that remixes prolific and celebrated rock artist John Van Hamserveld’s famous 1968 Shrine Auditorium concert poster art. A buzzsaw starburst, peaceful sunflowers and psychedelic lettering awash in warm, vibrant colors highlight the magic of contrasting forces.
