Ok, if you could only have ONE D*A*M pedal, what would it be?
I'd have to go with the MKII.
Yeah, maybe the MKII for me too, if I could have a 50% discount on the price... otherwise Les Paul in to 1974X for me! Pedals are so damn expensive nowadays!
MKII. I could survive with just this one pedal alone for my gainers. providing that it doesn't get too hot outside!
Fuzzaround (and I don't even have one)
A desert island with electricity? Well, ok ... I guess I'll take my '65. The one-knobber Meathead wouldn't be a bad choice, either.
Couldn't go wrong with a Deluxe or Titan, either:
Is this cheating? It's real, it exists...just uber rare. This is my dream D*A*M pedal. It's a '65 and a '66 in one housing.
In the meantime, I would happily make due with my SFT337/OC76 1966:
Les Paul into 1974x. We dont need no stnkin pedals! Although, I add a red rooster to it
Is the Mk 11 similar to the AM Beano? And if so, how close in sound quality are they? Rangemasters, right?
How about the 1966.. isnt that a classic fuzzface type circuit? Similar to the Sunface? No?
Totally different styles of pedals...
The MK II is a full on fuzz. Tonebender fuzz, to be exact. Based on the Sola Sound Tone Bender, as used by Jimmy Page. AM Beano is a treble booster... The closest you'll find in the D*A*M line is the Red Rooster (which looks AND sounds killer based on what I've read/heard)... Meathead (one knobber) would be cool, too, if you wanted some fuzz
1966 is *not* a fuzz face... It's another Tone Bender! Dave doesn't make any fuzzface type circuits, IIRC.
Yea.. my bad. I havent looked into or read much on these pedals, but recently have gained some interest.
I have a Throbak ODB and a Skreddy Screwdriver on the way. These 2 pedals are probably more in this camp then.
Whats the difference between the 1966 and 1965? What other pedals come close to its quality and tone/feel?
Tough choice, I have a Deluxe Meathead and a Sonic Titan and I like them a lot but for different things and I want to try the Red Rooster. I guess I'd go with the Meat.
Sonic Titan for me
One knob Meathead. Doesn't sound like any other fuzz I've ever heard.
Sounds great for chording. Great string separation.
Steve, how heavy can it get???
I'd like to pick up the one knobber in the future.
I'm waiting on the deluxe at the moment, which should be cool, too.
To dive in...its very heavy but the volume goes up along with the distortion amount. So if you use it with a clean amp you will have level issues with the gain maxed. But with a dirty amp this isn't a problem - its like big muff gain but with more clarity.
I keep my Meathead's knob set at about 11:00 for a perfect amount of fuzz and volume boost. It's a pretty heavy tone. Either it will work for you or it won't, but I really dig it.
I dig the Klon, but what does it have to do with this thread? None of the D*A*M pedals do what the Klon does.
The Drag'n'Fly. Has soooo much character. I just love it.
