    Just wondering how others best achieve a good, harmonically rich, sustaining fuzz tone sound playing in home situations through 7-12 watts, single coils?

    I am able to get close but the fuzz pedals still seem to need either a hard hit from the guitar volume or a stack with a low gain OD or a clean boost to really do their thing.

    I am running a PigMine and a SkinPimp Fuzz Face.

    Thanks

    Use a pedal like the DLS as a base pedal and set it just breaking then hit that with te fuzz. Hybrid pedals like a ScrewDriver, Lunar Module, Fuzzhead, ect. do better at this as well I think.

    = big muff.

    at bedroom levels, you couldn't be more satisfied. my "bedroom" amp is 5watts, with a strat. perfection. you don't need to go boutique with the skinpimp & stuff. simple, cheap. big muff pi.

    unless you read on gilmourish.com and he tells you to steer clear of a big muff unless you are using big volume lol. IMO it sounds just fine i use to run a big muff pi through a crappy crate 15 watt starter amp and would jam to black sabbath all day long.

    Yea, any Muff variation should do the trick.
