Who makes the best Hendrix Sounding Fuzz. Fulltone, Analogman, etc.?
KR Musical Products Gyspy Fuzz or Fuzz Child
I really like my Analogman Sundial NKT-275 for "Hendrix stuff"...very thick sounding fuzz face clone.
Depends on which Hendrix fuzz sound you want. Early Hendrix is germanium and easily achieved with the NKT-275; later Hendrix is silicon and I would recommend the new Foxrox Hot Silicon Fuzz Pedal.
geez i really start repeating myself...
(and i love these new icons :NUTS)
gimme another buck!!!
London Fuzz is the best today.
Couldn't agree more!
Although I might add that the amp is very important too. You can't plug either of those fuzz face clones into a clean Fender and expect to get the glorious mid tones of Jimi's Marshall. Best to have a good, cranked Brit sounding tube amp to start with.
+1 The amp, and cranking of said amp, are both important pieces of the Jimi tone puzzle, IMHO.
Same issue I had when looking for a fuzz...Si or Ge? Which to get?
I got both in one pedal and then some with Retroman's Sybil. I'm done looking.
im interested in this one, i just got a Karl but want another fuzztone.
I'm lookin for more of the early Hendrix Fuzz tones
I think all of the suggestions here are pretty spot on for vintage early Hendrix type fuzz boxes.
The good news and bad news I think, is that there are many good vintage Arbiter type fuzz boxes to chose from these days.
I would think considering Roger Mayers history with Jimi, his pedals should get you close also. ??
The way I percieved it when I was looking, (and I was looking to cop Jimi also), was since there were many to chose from, I started looking at features and versatility.
I like my Roger Mayer Axis Fuzz.
I also like my blue Dallas Arbiter silicon face, and; for germanium sounds, the Euthymia Crucible GE.
I notice that my Strats with stock, weaker pickups sound closer to Hendrix with my pedals and Marshall amps.
