    Received 2 fuzz pedals a few days apart...

    New Fuzz Pedal #1.... EHX Satisfaction
    Pre-mod...Rather thin and pedestrian sounding.
    Added capacitor to C7 .22nf ( Did Not add diodes to D2 or D3 )
    Post-Mod.... Fuller beefier sound. Def more versatile. Solid fuzz that works well with guitar vol.
    Earned a spot on the Secondary board.

    BUT...then I received..

    New Fuzz pedal #2.....
    JAM Pedals Fuzz Phrase
    1 word - Wow
    good string \ note definition.....cleans up with guitar volume knob but holds onto that base sound. Germanium Bliss
    I Really like this pedal......permanent fixture on main board


    ( fuzz pedals that have come and gone.... American Toneworks HIVE \ Big Muff Pi \ Walrus Audio Contraband fuzz)

    Satisfaction Fuzz

    Happy NPD! I'm looking for an inexpensive Mosrite FUZZrite clone. Do you think the Satisfaction can do it?

    Ty......

    I am not familiar with the Mosrite Fuzzrite clone...... its my understanding the Satisfaction is based on the Jordan Bosstone Fuzz...

    Satisfaction is a good pedal for the $$ as it is fairly inexpensive.... and the 75 cent mod makes a nice difference
