The If 6 Was 9 is a modern interpretation of the classic late 60's, early 70's, Fuzz Face circuit with a few updates and modifications. At the heart of the If 6 Was 9 is a pair of hand selected, new old stock BC183 transistors. These transistors offer a great balance of soul and attitude producing a unique fuzz character that is rich and smooth with excellent sustain and exceptional volume clean up. Vintage spec carbon comp resistors further enhance the warmth of the core circuit while the addition of an external bias control and the 2-way tone switch provide maximum versatility and allow for quick adjustment of the overall fuzz texture. Although the If 6 Was 9 has a distinctly vintage flavour it is capable of generating an extremely wide range of useful fuzz sounds, from full bodied and round to more gated and splatty. If soulful fuzz is your thing, the If 6 Was 9 will be a fantastic sounding and gorgeous addition to your arsenal.
