John Frusciante’s Fuzz Faceaccess_time First seen circa 1991
John used this pedal early on, circa 1991. It is, unfortunately, unknown to which extent he used it, and if he used it at all during the BSSM studio sessions or just while playing live. Also, since there are no photos (to our knowledge) of him with the pedal, it is unknown whether he used a vintage model, or something like a 1990s Dunlop JH-2 Fuzz Face.
I have an Ibanez wah-wah pedal, because it has a wider range than the others. I use a Fuzzface and a Boss distortion pedal, and an MXR phase shifter, and that’s about it. [Guitar (UK), February 1991]
