The Italian Fuzz compact is our idealized version of the Italian made Vox Tone Benders in a compact enclosure. Although closely related to the germanium Fuzz Face circuit this fuzz is more articulate and defined. It has strong gain and saturation at full "Attack", but doesn't get overly dark and wooly on the low strings. Lots of headroom and excellent clean-up when rolling off your guitar's volume. Good output volume if you need to pop out of the mix or would like to push your tube amp's input. 

As of May, 2019 we are loading all Italian compacts with N.O.S. (New Old Stock) SFT323, 353, or similar SFT for the first (Q1) transistor and N.O.S. Mullard OC76 in the second position.
