Very versatile fuzz for both home and live playing

glass rush, 25.12.2017
I've had it for 2 months and been very happy with this pedal. Separate Input and Output controls make ti very versatile and enable to use the pedal also with small amps at low volume, when some fuzz pedals don't sound good. Combine these features with different levels of gain (Anger) and you have many shades of fuzz from thin to thick, from gritty to woolly and everything between: it can sound crispy or raspy, focused or looser. And the high end control and bass respond switches make it easy to match with different types of guitars.
Tone vise it's class British sound that cuts great in mix.
Just great and very versatile fuzz.

From simple garage sound to hearty fuzz board

Dalaius, 10.11.2017
Unfortunately, I have little experience with Fuzz pedals and can only compare with the classic, the Big Muff.
In contrast to the big muffalo, the Minos sounds refreshingly clear, and prevails in the band.

The operation is easy to understand, the "Output" control does not really help me, because it's 100% at the touch - maybe it makes sense in a parallel effect way, but not in my setup.
For me, the Minos hangs on a VOX AC50CH in front of the FXLoop. In some settings there is a cozy 70ies feeling on, as my Strat then sounds wonderful to Hendrix. Then everything is possible. The sound reminds me more of an overdrive than of a fuzz, but as I mentioned earlier, I lack experience and comparison. Anyway, I love the endless sustain and give the pedal not so soon, if ever again!

Why then only 4 points in the operation? I do not like pedals with too many possibilities;) At the Minos one regulates over the input also the bass part, over Anger ... well, the fuzzigkeit;) over two mini switches one can still turn on a HighCut and then one still has the choice between three Steps to bass - then I never know what I want :)
