What happened to the Boss Hyper Fuzz?
I can't find one anywhere. Did they discontinue it?  
 
Anyone out there got one they don't want?  
 
Thanks! :D  
 
C ya,

It's been discontinued a few years ago and replaced by the FZ3 Fuzz. I tried one about 4 years ago and it had the most horrendous, unusable sound ever put in a stombox IMHO. I think it lasted about 2 to 3 years.  
 
It was more akin to a pink noise generator than anything in fuzz modes and the boost mode couldn't justificate the asking price.  
 
Hope this helps.

Oh man, how can you deny the power of the FZ-2? Just turn it on and hit few power chords and there you go. Hahaha  
 
Sure, it's not a tube screamer (thank god), but more of a nasty fuzz box that works well on bone headed chords. You have to admit that nasty fuzz has its place. The FZ-2 feeds the need. I've used one on a couple cheesy punk songs...and enjoyed it.

Don't get me wrong, I love fuzz! I have 4 fuzz pedals and want even more of them!  
It's just that the FZ2 sounded extremely harsh and atonal to me.

Oh yeah, that describes it--harsh and atonal.  
I find it refreshing to be harsh and atonal on occasion (on purpose of course).  
 
just to be clear that we're all friends here, no offense was meant by my previous post.
