I don't know what about it you didn't like, but I rather liked it....
I've heard (and built) some really cool fuzzes. The FZ-2 really nailed a lot of different fuzz tones for me, and all in one convenient box.
The only one I've heard that has a similar amount of tonal versatility is that Ibenhad one that has the little switch to select normal fuzz, 10%-broken fuzz, and 90%-broken fuzz. Neat idea, but the fuzz sound is rather generic, IMO.
I have a modded reissue Big Muff Pi, and I've built Fuzz Faces before (some of which were killer when the battery was almost dead--probably a biasing issue), but the FZ-2 really "did it" for me, giving me useable "Satisfaction" fuzz and outrageous "buzz-saw" super-sustaining textures like a killer modded Fuzz Face (with the benefit of 2-band EQ thrown in!), and some other fun sounds at the twist of a knob. I bet with a little work I could even fake the Big Muff Pi convincingly with it....
C ya, and thanks for the info!
