Hi guys, I would to get this pedal. I know that Musket side is very good pedal for Gilmour muff sound, but I don't knowt he Fix'd Fuzz side. Is it similar to fuzz face that David used in the first album? And does it use silicon or germanium transistors?

Thanks a lot

I am not sure about what transistors are used on the fix'd fuzz, but if you check out ilovefuzz, there might be an answer.
The fix'd is a great fuzz that can cover a whole lot. The PGS demos of the Fix'd and the twosome show a lot of the range.

Both the fix'd and the musket are silicon.

I would say the Musket (to my ear) is more along the lines of a fuzzy distortion than it is a fuzzy fuzz, if that makes any sense.

The fix'd is highly tweak-able, and is more of what I would consider a true fuzz on the fuzz 1 circuit and velcro sounds on the fuzz 2 circuit.

I own the seriously special twosome (via PGS) which is a fix'd and a blunderbuss in one pedal. The blunderbuss is a musket that uses a combination of silicon and germanium trannys. This pedal also allows both sides to be stacked in either direction.

A great pedal....depending on the fuzz sounds you're after.... but you are best off buying one used and trying it out to see if you can dial in Gilmour...

I have the very special twosome that allows you to stack both sides. The fix'd side is supee versatile and does a great clean boost with just the boost and tone switches engaged. I run the fix'd side with fuzz 1 on and cranked with volume at unity. The musket side will get you a myriad of tones as well. GREAT fuzz pedal IMHO!

The Fix'd side is versatile- from overdrive to velcro fuzz, and some Pavement-esque, spluttery fuzz also. I actually use it as a clean boost. The Musket side is heavy, and sounds great, but is more of a distortion than a fuzz. However, it is quite a noisy pedal!

I'm not sure where the Musket-as-distortion meme is coming from: It's a Muff (and it does nail Muff tones) that can do so much more (unless people think the Muff isn't a fuzz)--I use it to cop Buzzaround tones. -E

Yea Musket side is absolutely a Muff styled fuzz. Although the preamp knob blends in a distortion tone. The best Fuzz pedal around. Worth the money!
