Just curious whether Larry has used a fuzz. Some of the YouTube vids have a tone I don't associate with his Dumbles. Something with more of an edge. I don't see a fuzz listed on any of the gear lists that I see on the web. Anyone know?
I don't think that clip sounded like a Fuzz at all. Seriously, not in the slightest.
I will say when Larry is on, he is amazing, but he sometimes falls into that I'm going to shred thing and ends up sounding like complete crap.
Thanks for the clip, two of the most outstanding guitar players ever (even though the drummer is the only guy that really seems to enjoy himself but I would be pretty happy playing with those cats too
Lees tone and playing is so perfectly flawless it almost becomes dare I say boring? Larrys tone is alive, dirty and a perfect contrast as intended here. The tone is a bit fuzzy and not really his signature (other than the fact the tone is in his fingers and that he would probably sound like himself even playing a banjo). The Les Paul was never his first weapon of choice even though he has probably played most six strings known to mankind.
If you like his tone in the clip just experiment with gear and maybe a fuzz will do it. If you like Carltons signature tone stay away from fuzz.
