With a Fuzz Face, Hendrix could elicit an endless variety of tones by using different pickup combinations, manipulating his guitar's volume control, and picking at different areas of a string. The Fuzz Face not only gave him a full-on primal howl with its burly, fat-sounding fuzz tones, it afforded him remarkably detailed clean textures as well.

The album Are You Experienced remains a shining example of Hendrix's ingenious use of the effect. The song "Manic Depression," for example, has Hendrix veer in and out of grainy yet-almost-twangy tones during the verses only to go to full-on meltdown during the solo with howling sustain and thick-as-a-brick midrange. By backing down his guitar's volume control, Hendrix used the exaggerated treble bite and hyper-sensitive attack the Fuzz Face offers to enhance clean tones and make them really speak. Another example of this sonic yin-yang is, among others, "Third Stone From the Sun," as it features some amazingly jangly chordal work as well as the insane sonic equivalent of WWIII, all achieved with help from the Fuzz Face.
