Here are some sample reviews from Harmony Central. (prices have changed over the years)
$65.00 for a hand made Fuzzface paedal…how do you not at least try it! Sound…let your ears decide…I think it kills! I have owned the Anoalogman Sunface, Foxrox Fuzzfoot,Diaz Texas Squareface…and others…this pedal is on par with those mentioned.I guess if we all are willing to pay $250+ for a Fuzz pedal, the builder will charge that much.I loved the pedals I just mentioned, but the Trachouse fuzz does sound every bit as good…that aint no lie!!!It responds to your vol knobs(like the others) and produces nice warm fuzzface tone….simply gets it done!I like the low end on this pedal….a bit more focussed(tighter).Hey, what more can I say…this is on my pedal board for a reason…and none of the others are any more.True bypass too!
Build looks good….I have no concerns.
Regardless of price…this fuzz holds it’s own against any. And when you do consider price…it may be the best bargain to be had!

What can I say? Sounds exactly like a fuzz face. I bought this because I wanted to get that fuzz face sound without paying the crazy prices of the originals OR the crazy prices of some of the other clones out there. LOTS of volume in this pedal, and it really sounds best when both knobs are cranked. Just use the volume knob on your guitar to control the amount of fuzz. This pedal reacts to your guitar’s volume knob better than any other pedal I’ve ever used. I usually leave the guitar’s volume just below max, then max it out for lead parts and the such. Has definitely changed the way I play my stratocaster. There is some definite radio interference from time to time, but it’s only when the guitar’s volume knob is all the way down. I’ve found using batteries instead of a wall adapter helps a lot (sounds better with batteries anyway).
I’ve used this pedal live about ten times already and it hasn’t let me down yet. I once fell on top of it during an especially emotional solo and the little knobies jammed right into my back (owey!). I got up to see that the pedal was virtually unscathed and finished the set. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the volume pot was recessed into the housing of the pedal. I took the knob off, unscrewed the washer, pulled the pot back out, and reassembled everything. Guess what? Works like new. Just don’t fall on top of yours and you should be fine.
I’ve really found nothing to complain about. Great sound quality. Great, unobtrusive housing. Great value. Taking a look inside is like viewing a piece of art. All the components are cleanly hand-wired and set into place, just like the original fuzz faces (in a much smaller enclosure, of course). The fuzz is thick, dark, and…well, fuzzy! Just how I like it. It’s certainly not a one-dimensional pedal, though. Using your guitar’s volume knob yields tones from slightly overdriven to over-the-top fuzzy and everything in between, staying very articulate throughout. I own about seven other fuzzes (I like fuzz) and this one is top quality.
