I think you should get both and then decide whether or not to sell :) I think a mini in my future also. I just got a fuck

I'm on the fence about this...

I use my Fuck MAINLY for standalone crunchy sound. Sometimes, I boost my Fingerprint with it, but my MAIN use for it is standalone crunch with gain and cut at noon, gritty and pretty transparent... sometimes i beef it up with boost before... but i pretty much never use crackle, mainly because I tend to use OD BEFORE fuzzes, so there's not enough power to make the crackle really work even on full blast

So i could totally get a Mini to replace that, right? I mean... it's a pretty basic way to use it, right...

it just doesn't feel right... I feel strong feelings towards my bare metal Fuck... it took me so long to find an OD pedal i liked so much :idk: I'm probably not doing it

I'm going to get a Mini because I don't think I'll ever want to let go of my original Fuck. It's my favourite dirt pedal ever.

edit: so get both in other words :thumb:

I have mine set the exact same way, and sometimes even have the gain turned down even more. Absolutely in love with my Fuck at the moment. Planning getting a Hawk and a Mini to go with it. Will probably use the Mini for some higher gain sounds and use my regular one for more subtle gritty sounds

I now own both the fuck and mini. Definitely recommend trying/getting both as they both do different things and they are very good at what they do.

For me they both have a very organic and "amp like" sound but ESPECIALLY the big fuck. it's probably the most usable overdrive I've heard. not gated or crunchy, it just sounds correct. to me it sounds like just MORE of what you already have, and has a very balanced sound. I don't even want the EQ on this guy that the mini has. it does NOT need it. no low end loss or anything either! I love it on guitar and bass

The mini kinda has the same thing going for but it has more tonal flexibility with the EQ and bias. it sounds different from the bigger fuck however, which is a good thing. it also gets into more fuzzy territory with more gain on tap. I feel like this pedal can get more mean and crunchy than the big fuck.

I would also note that both of these pedals have balls and are not for someone wanting glassy dirt. To me they are voiced for aggression and not being a prissy ninny

Both of these run new at a great price, and if you end up not liking it someone else will buy it from you because they're great high quality pedals

Ugh, you guys are making me really want to get a fuck to go with my mini, because I find myself wanting to use the mini more for the low bias fuzzy stuff recently but it's my only OD...

Conversely, I am thinking I really want to get the mini to go with the fuck. I do love the fuck but different shades maybe cool as well.
