    Anyone have any suggestions?

    My Tonebender does not really stack well with the BD2, my '70 did not either.

    I play through a Fender EC Vibro Champ and a Princeton Reverb II.
    Mostly Classic/Hard Rock.

    Anyone have any fuzz's that work well with their BD2?


    Thanks Everybody!

    My Mojohand Iron Bell sounds amazing with a BD-2. The dirt blends smooth together adding extra sustain when needed.

    I like my analogman sun face fuzz into my BD-2 with analogman's super mod.
    Don't like the am sun bender into the BD-2.

    I never quite bonded with the Muffs I've had. I even had a Rams Head for a while. Bjorns Iron Bell video is quite convincing though. I may have to give one a try again.



    Would that be a germanium Sun Face or silicon?

    What kind of amp do you play through?

    I sold my NKT a few years ago. I found it did not like my Fender amps at loud volume. I've always wanted to try a Sun Bender

    In as much as I've gotten some decent results stacking an OD-3 with the Wampler Velvet Fuzz, it might be worth a try with the BD-2.

    Germanium NKT-275 white dot medium gain
    SF Champ, SF Princeton and Allen Sweet Spot (like a BF Princeton Reverb with 18 watts)

    Black Arts Black Forest sounds good with anything. Can go before or after the BD2.

    Try and look for fuzz pedals with a decent EQ adjustment, preferably both treble and bass knobs.

    Tho I do like the light blue Jimi fuzz face (before OD)

    The BD-2 shapes the tone in a unique way when it's after fuzz. I've mostly liked it stacked with more extreme fuzzes like the Fuzz Factory and the Fuzz War. I like it with my FZ-2 also. I never set the gain past noon on the BD-2 btw

    Exactly this...

    2008 normal white dot NKT Sunface into AM Super BD-2. Sweet combo
    Really wanted to like the SunBender but it just wouldn't work for me, very temperamental too.

    Rat (I know, it's a distortion pedal).
