Before I inevitably spend over a thousand dollars, please help me! Right now, I have both sunbenders and a beano boost in the shopping cart and that just cant happen if I want to eat at all over the next month or so.... I'm really looking for suggestions on optimizing my set up for these types of pedals before I start the collection. I bought an RCA Sunface that I'm really liking, and I feel like I should tread softly on the path of fuzz before I load up on options. "spend some time with a good fuzz face" seems like good advice. I'm using humbuckers and p90s into a Retro King 18w most of the time, and a 50w RK JTM50 when I can get away with it. My bridge pickups are around 9k output PAFs on average and I'm thinking of moving to t tops 7.5k-ish output. If I'm after more touch sensitivity and clarity, more shades of dirt between sparkling cleans and plump fat ass fuzz sounds, is the lower the output better for that? I hear T Tops more single coilish, better for fuzz, but..... I'm surprised how bright it the RCA sunface gets. I'm nervous at times that it is too much, even though no one seems to be complaining. Sometimes at practice if I'm the only one playing I think, damn, that chord sounds like broken glass, I would never want to plug single coils into it. My amp tone knobs are dialing in more bass than I'm used to. Thats cool, theyre there for a reason, but if I'm correct on the t tops being more like a single coil am I going to be moving past the threshold? I've never liked any fuzz face pedals before and I think the brightness concern would go away with the sunbenders, but I think if I can get a firm grasp on this sunface thing first, get the right pickups going, i'll be better prepared for this fuzz journey. I'm considering low output unpotted A3 PAFs, T tops, or possibly overwound T Tops with coil splitting and would appreciate any thoughts on how to get the most out of the sunface with my guitar's electronics before I start really diving in. Hope to hear some wisdom from those who have gone before me on this path!
