The MXR Classic 108 Fuzz is an analog guitar pedal that has 1/4 inch connections and has a power supply that comes with it to power it.  It isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a foot pedal.


The configuration of the MXR Classic 108 Fuzz is really easy to follow as it only has a few parameters to play around with.  It has two large knobs for output (volume) and input (fuzz) and also has a button that they call "buffer" which is kind of like a compressor/limiter.  This is just about as basic as it gets when it comes to pedals and even those with no experience with fuzz or distortion pedals in the past should be able to figure out how to use it.  The manual for the MXR Classic 108 Fuzz is put together nicely but isn't necessary as it is easy to use on its own.


The sound quality heard from the MXR Classic 108 Fuzz is overall pretty awesome.  It definitley has a nice fuzz sound that is suitable for any type of music you would want to use fuzz with, although I only have used it for rock music.  It is a good pedal both for lead and rhythm guitar parts but I probably use it mostly for rhythm parts as I find that it adds a lot for certain types of parts.  I usually use this pedal with a Fender Strat and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb as the amp doesn't have any built in distoriton and I find that I always get some really interesting sounds that I'm happy with.


I've been using the MXR Classic 108 Fuzz for about two or three years and as far as strictly fuzz pedals go, this one is one of my favorites.  It has a really thick fuzz sound to it and while I don't always require fuzz for my sound, when I do this pedal comes in really handy.  The price of this pedal is probably a bit more expensive than it should be, but if you are looking for a fuzz pedal to use often it is definitley worth the price.  Overall, the MXR Classic 108 Fuzz is a great fuzz pedal that is reminiscant of some of those classic Hendrix fuzz tones.
