    I wish there was a Shazam for fuzz pedals, but that's what this place is for right? The new record sounds great, just like the last, but Wilson used more of his fuzz pedals this time around I was happy to hear. Wondering if anyone recognized the buzzy fuzz sound heard on the track "Strange Encounter." Been looking for something that does this kind of sound and it's a perfect example. If you haven't heard the record, but are bored and into vintage fuzz, it comes in about a minute into the itunes preview of the track.

    Sub pop posted a video for the song. Fuzz comes in at 1:48

    I’m sure the Fuzz Factory could produce that sound, or look into a fuzz with a voltage starve.

    I’m not a fuzz expert, though. Good luck. Jonathan Wilson’s fuzz tones on his albums are always killer.

    I'm not sure if they are still in production, but The Crazy Horse pedal can do that.

    He always seems to have a bunch of Catalinbread pedals...so maybe one of their pedals? He also usually has a vintage Vox tonebender, and of course a cranked tweed.

    You want something that can get very starved and/or gated. Fuzz Factory is a good suggestion, as is perhaps the Trombetta Mini Bone. Durhams Crazy Horse too. there is quite a few available that will do that. Knowing Wilson's production skills, it's very possible he's using a fuzz with a voltage starve device.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I actually have a crazy horse but it doesn't get focused and buzzy like that. I'll check out the others and take into account the voltage starve possibility.

    I can ask him what the fuzz was. He's got soldering chops too, it's possible he used a circuit that he rolled himself.

    Wow, that would be amazing! You have a very helpful team there. Erksin guessed something in the Maestro family so I'm checking out some of their designs I might have overlooked.

    For now the two that seem like the best contenders are the Analogman Peppermint Fuzz and this one that I hadn't heard of before, the Bearfoot Candiru Apple Fuzz.

    Supersonic Fuzz Gun can do something like that.

    My first thought was that it sounded just like my old fuzz factory. I'm really into this record right now. Jonathan Wilson has done a beautiful job producing it.

    PTD Mini Bone can definitely do those tones.
