i've had the luck to own an original VOX MKIII ToneBender in flesh and blood. I bought it expecting it to sound along the lines of the Jumbo Fuzzes (i bought it only because i got a good price and i wanted to resell it), as i was not informed about the true MKIII and MKIV nature. So...
i'm looking into current options of replacing my cheese wedge Dunlop Octavio reissue with a smaller version. I also have the Hendrix Octavio (standard mxr enclosure size with a blue picture of Jimi) and in my comparisons to the big one, they sound pretty much identical when both are...
I think they are a fairly new and small "boutique" pedal builder who seem to specialize in heavy fuzz and distortion. There isn't a lot to find about them online so I thought I should chip in and leave my thoughts here.
I just bought one from Reverb. They are pretty rare over here in Europe.
Hello, I've had this old Yamaha EM80 mixer for quite some time and have no use for it. Other things are wrong with it, channel 1 works 50% of the time, it won't power speakers and really only works with the line out jacks. It does however sound quite cool when I run a dry guitar signal into it...
Can this be fixed? Do I need a recone kit?
I can’t hear any voice coil rub when I press down on the speaker (when the amp is off).
The speaker is an Eminence 10446 (1028K).
In the video I’m trying to show how the buzz gets worse in some spots and goes away completely in others.
The buzz only...
For a few years I have drooled over the Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe. I honestly have never owned a fuzz, but just love the versatility of this pedal in all the demos I've seen.
One thing I learned recently is how Fuzz pedals don't like coming after buffers (or really any other pedals, from what I...
Over the holiday festivities, a family member gave me an old Mosrite fuzzRITE to see if I can repair it. It was used by the bass player in some touring band, back in the 70's, when the bass player became fed up with its intermittent and temperamental behavior, removed it from his signal chain...
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi's.
Nano Big Muff
Russian Big Muff
Ram's Head Big Muff
Triangle Big Muff
Op Amp Big Muff
I reamped a simple guitar riff into each pedal. Then into a Blackstar HT Club 40. No cab/mic used. Instead, I used a 2x12 cab IR with 2x SM57 emulators.
EHX Satisfaction Fuzz A recreation of the popular 60's tones.
Schecter Solo II reamped into the pedal and then into a Blackstar HT club 40. No cab/mic combo used, instead I routed the Blackstar into a Torpedo Two Notes Captor and used a 2x12 IR.
Got my first ever germanium fuzz on the way. I’ve been really enjoying the Jackson audio modular fuzz (especially with that octave) but I also wanted something simpler. Got a great deal used on it.
This is the two knob, small enclosure version. I’d love to hear some thoughts about Jose who are...
(Yes, I did search the forums before posting this)
What’s your favourite bass fuzz? Right now, I’m going between the Fuzzhugger Bass Bloom (no longer made, unfortunately) and the Wampler Ratsbane. What are yours?
While you’re at it, also mention your rigs. I go between an Am Std P-Bass with La...
I've recently got my hands on a 1970s Sola Sound Tone Bender. I noticed that the germanium transistors look noticeably different from any other examples I've seen online. Don't get me wrong, it sounds awesome and I wouldn't want to change any parts. I'm more curious to know what's...
I feel some Fuzz's can do distortion, but distortions can't do fuzz. Kinda fringe because the bleed over of each is real!.. Beyond the philosophical stuff which I would love to hear. I have a #2 spot on the pedal board ALWAYS in flux. Have a OpAmp Muff there now. Looking at some distortions...
I just bought this fuzz because it has a cool mushroom LED and a big knob. It also sounds really good in the demo video.
Does anyone know anything about Fjord Fuzz or the Berserker?
I love running my germanium fuzz face into my OTS 20 set dirty. It's thick, it's wooly, it sustains and sings.... and I still get cleanup on my volume knob from both the Strat and 339. Love it!
But.... that octave up thing from an Octavio is really cool. I wouldn't want the octave effect all...
The Boss FZ-5. Three legendary fuzz pedals in one pedal.
Schecter Solo II reamped into the pedal and then run into a Blackstar HT Club 40. No cab/mic used. Instead, I used a Torpedo Two Notes Captor and a 4x12 cab IR.
I'm looking to get a muff-style fuzz and a Tone Bender or Fuzz Face style fuzz, but I'd like to only use up one spot on my power supply for the two. I'm leaning towards the Hoof Reaper, but I was wondering if there are any other dual fuzz pedals out there worth considering, or if there are any...
