    Another entry in the ongoing journey of exploring uses for fuzz...

    Increasingly, I've realized that among the many ways to use fuzz, perhaps my favorite is the delay-saturated volume swell.

    Nothing else I've used has the harmonic richness and natural sustain and decay of a good fuzzface. ODs and distortions just don't seem compare.

    I've been able to attain violin and even cello-like sounds that are just gorgeous!

    This video from fellow TGP'er Karl Verkade is a really great example of what I'm describing:

    Does anyone else use fuzz in this way, or other ambient-oriented ways? I'd love to get your thoughts and ideas...
