You know, like you can do with fuzzes, and not lose a lot of overall volume or sparkle. I like fuzzes, just not all the time. I wish I could have this sort of control without the major volume loss with my overdrive/distortion/boost pedals. I noticed, if I don't put a buffer before these drive pedals, I get a bit more of what I'm looking for, but still nothing quite like what one gets with a fuzz. Can you only do it with a fuzz? Is it in the circuitry? Drives I'm using most of the time are RC/AC/BB.
