is there any love for the Fender Blender???
how does it compare to other octave - fuzz
Its a real good Octave Fuzz but the Octave up can never be shut off and there is a massive Volume drop when the Boost button is not engaged. I would suggest looking at either the Fox Tone Machine, Fulltone Ultimate Octave, or even the Dano French Toast before getting a Fender Blender.
thanks for the heads up.
+1 on the French Toast. Great pedal, made by the man who made the original. Cheap and cheaply made but sounds like the real deal.
I've never played one of the old ones, but if you're talking about the reissue, i have one and don't like it one bit.
ok, so tell me why you dont like it ?? the demos i have heard of it make it sound great, apart from the whole you cant turn the octave off.
Ahh, but the original is a classic. Think 'Bullet with Butterfly Wings'. The original is all over that album. One of Billy Corgans fav's. They're touchy but they have a unique sound, like a cross between a really heavey distortion and an octave /fuzz. And it stacks great as well. I boost mine with a Lovepedal Balance and it sounds sick. Very very heavy, but still really cool.
I have an original and the reissue. I don't remember there being any significant difference. The Blender sounds unique, and most either love or hate it.
