    I just bought one of these pedals because I found one cheap. I read Electric Wizard has used the FZ-2, also read Billy Corgan has used it. Anyone know good settings for this pedal?

    Great fuzz! I think mode 2 sounds the most Electric Wizard like, but I mostly use mode 1, because I like the extra mids of that mode. I usually set it with all knobs around 1:00 or so

    I had one for a little while. I was left with the impression that Electric Wizard may just be using it as a boost. It has to be the loudest boost in the world. That vs their old amps. The boost is 'colored' - it sounds like an effect, has an eq signature.

    The Mode 2 fuzz sound is all over the whole album on both Dopethrone and Come My Fanatics. I think it's a very distinctive sound
