The Iron Tusk is a modified version of the discontinued Hellephant fuzz pedal.

As with the Hellephant, the Iron Tusk has its roots in the silicon version of the Fuzz Face but modified and tweaked for a more usable pedal.

The tones the pedal produces sounds like it is part of your amp and less like it is coming from a pedal.

Due to the original NOS BC239 transistors, the Iron Tusk yields a warm fuzz tone that cleans up amazingly well with your guitar's volume.

Unlike the Fuzz Face, the Iron Tusk's Fuzz control works very well giving you everything from a low-gain overdrive to full-out, thick fuzz.

With the Fuzz around 9-10 o'clock and your neck pickup you will get an overdriven blues tone with punch, snap and warmth. Turning the control up to 12-2 o'clock gives you a thicker, amp-like compressed tone. Maxing out the fuzz will give you a monstrous, gnarly, ripping fuzz.
