Howdy, So I've become a Fuzz head convert of sorts. I got my first fuzz pedal after playing for 30+ years and I can't believe how much fun these things are. My question is this: The pedal I picked up was an older BBE Free Fuzz (it was super cheap on ebay and I just wanted to try it and it's in new condition). When I have my guitar volume all the way open and use a harder and quicker picking attack, I will find that I get a strange almost volume type of decrease on the low E string. It's kind of bizarre and it happens on all my guitars, both humbucks and singlecoils. Perhaps it's the distortion/string frequencies getting so convoluted that it creates this apparent dip in volume? I'm totally guessing here. However, when I roll back the volume knob about two clicks (this applies to all my guitars) I get all the benefits everyone talks about by running a fuzz with the volume backed off AND that weird volume dip in the low E string goes away. So, beyond the obvious of simply running my guitar volumes just a touch lower, is this a normal operation of fuzz type pedals or is it just the BBE pedal and a quality issue? Either way, I dig the pedal and have started down a very slippery path of fuzz fanaticism that will probably result in more money spent on "better" fuzz pedals in the near future. Overall I do really like the sound of the BBE Free Fuzz. I have other BBE's on my pedal board and I've always been happy with their build quality and sound. Any advice or tips is very appreciated. Edit: I'm playing through a Tweaker 15 with a closed back 1 X 12 cab Guitars: Gibson LP, American Standard Strat, G&L ASAT Custom Classic, 62 RI Jazzmaster.
