Some of Muse's Matt Bellamy have a Fuzz Factory built in on his guitars, some have Kaoss pads.
Usually, Fuzz Face = Single Coils, Treble Boosters = Humbuckers.
Not always, but usually.
I use it very first on the chain. Sounds awesome that way, with all the nice cleanup a Fuzz Face should have.
Idk about the opamp version being clear, but yeah - A V4 or V5 opamp Muff will do the trick. More distortion-y than Muff-y than other Big Muffs.
SD-1 can either boost the gain of the MXR or boost your overall volume, can be picked up at around $20-30 on craigslist.
RATs sound awesome on a...
SD-1's one of the cheapest ways for boosting. Don't get a DS-1 for boosting.
Turn the Voice control higher? Not gonna help you with the bass loss, but that's how tubescreamer-y circuits are. Zendrive's one of the smoothest...
I'd keep the Line 6 M-series for the Particle Verb and Octa Verb alone.
Sounds super awesome on a clean platform amp. Wants to be boosted, good for Fuzz Face types, octavias, and treble boosters.
I used to rock the...
Maybe too much dirt?
Tuner, Comp, Wah put in reverse, Muff, OD, Chorus/Electric Mistress, Delay, Vibe, Phaser for Gilmour.
Treble booster, AC30 in a box, and delay...
Yeah volume knob + delay with long repeats. Or you could get an M5 or DL-4as it has an auto-volume echo swell mode. Sounds sweet.
Blackstone MOSFET Overdrive for me. 2 channels with slightly different flavor, and looks cool as hell.
True, but with the gain up and the treble totally off, there is a treble boost. But I guess there are other ones that do a better job, such as an...

Are you using it mono? Make sure it's on the right output first.
A multi-effect like the M5 is useful for those certain songs that need a specific effect (i.e. Whammy, Shimmer-y sound, Flange/Phase, chorus)....
China RAT's a little noisier and fuzzier than the old ones.
ProCo RAT with LM308N used.
You can profit flipping if you don't like it. Just saying.
Sweet spot is with the volume on 3:00 onwards. More open sounding.
I'm actually super interested on Treble Boosters, and I don't consider myself 'old' yet haha (I'm 22).
I've been looking at and researching on...
DLS MKII nails the 'amp-in-a-box' more than the V1 and V2 DLS. It's my main dirt. Can't go wrong with either, I have both.
How about turning the guitar's volume down? It's free. Or maybe use a compressor or EQ to cut your volume?
