MJM London Fuzz

I have the chance to get a MJM london fuzz.

Has anyone used this pedal. How reliable is it?

I had the "stock" London (germ), loved it so much I had a custom made in a smaller box and a bias knob added. The MJM London Fuzz (germ) is by far my favorite fuzz, this having tried and owned more than I care to admit. One characteristic that it has that many do not is how well it retains the low end. As far a quality, it's indeed a well built pedal. Given that you are in Australia, I would jump on the opportunity given that there are likely not very many MJM's floating about.

I went and picked it up today.

Didnt have much time to muck around with it but all i can say is

HOLY ****ING **** BATMAN

The thing is perfect, simple to use and sounds full, unlike my fuzz factory (which i traded).

Just a question though, is it positive ground or necgative ground for the DC adapter?

If you still need to know...
I read that it works with a normal polarity adapter (the guy from MJM built in something so it works with the "normal polarity") but that it needs it's own dedicated one (i.e. not daisy chained).

And I also read that he will rehouse the pedal to a smaller enclosure, and an added bias knob (for some dollars probably).

Its the greatest. Its a really dark sounding fuzz. I tried the Zvex FF and didnt like it, too trebly and thin. The MJM is fat, warm and tames the treble from my strat/plexi rig.

I seriously think these pedals should get more love than yhey do. I mean, the FF had a whole lot of stuff, but only a few actually usable settings. The MJM has a wide range of settings, cleans up better and retains low end better.

Has anybody tried the MJM Foxey Fuzz? Compared to the London?

The london fuzz does what its description on the website says.

I would bet money that the foxey does what its description says too.

Try harmony central for a review.
