    Ok I am on a tone hunt for getting that tone(pedal wise) on that wonderful album. Here is what I have narrowed my search down to.....

    Fulltone Octafuzz
    Chicago Iron Octavian
    Retroman Wolf Tone
    Fuzzy Gypsy
    KR Doubler

    Any input to any of these pedals would be great! And as always if anyone is getting rid of any one of these PLEASE let me know! Thanks in advance for any help given! Ryan

    Which tone from that album? The octave fuzz or the fuzz face sound? Really you need a wah, fuzz face, vibe and octavia to get the whole package. Or the Digitech pedal, as used by Jimi. ;)

    Indeed!!! I'm on a search for that as well. I'm thinking Mojo. Octave/Fuzz wise is what I am after. Got everything else(besides the vibe) covered.
    :crazy

    I believe the flipped over strat is a must! No offense on the Digitech:BEER I'm guilty of some Jimi marketing items. Today I put some of those Dean Markley "Jimi" strings on the strat. I had to get them and just see what was going on. They were cheap as well. So far not so bad.:worried

    Here's an old clip I did of the Ultra Vibe and a PE Yardbox.
    Bad notes and tuning and all :)

    Machine Gun

    You need a good high gain fuzz with a minimum of fizz, oh and LOTS of VOLUME :)

    Thanks you good sir! Cool clip. I have been looking hard at that Mojo Vibe of yours! I'll check out the Ultra Vibe as well!

    Univibe clone, Sweet Sound Mojo Vibe or the new FoxRox...silicon fuzz, Analogman BC 108 or the new Hendrix Fuzz Face, Octavia go for the CI Octavia or the Dunlop Octavio and a wah, Teese Picture is the ticket...

    EDIT: Since making this post I have changed my mind about what the best wah for me and I no longer use RMC wahs.

    Ive owned two. They are fantastic, the chorus mode is amazing. You have to use the PE power supply with it, if I remember correctly it runs on 12v AC.

    However, IMHO the pro vibe in the CC2 is better.

    Now thats the way it's supposed to sound! That sustained note is the one and you are absolutely right that it only can sound really right when that Marshall stack is pegged and feeding it all back at ya! These bedroom clips that have been making the rounds lately don't impress me much because they totally miss the point about Hendrix and how he used volume to get his thing on.

    I'm really impressed with Dave Fox's Aquavibe clip and the Chicago Iron octavia is the fattest, vintage BOG sounding box I've heard yet and allows you to play full chords unlike the original versions. Wahs and fuzz are just personal taste because there are so many great ones now it just boils down to trying them out to see what works for your rig.
