    Any die-hard fuzz fans (might own several fuzzes: royer mayers, KR's, Foxroxs, MJM fuzzes, throbak, Analogman fuzzes) try the Lovepedal 200lb?

    yah? nah? I know it isn't a fuzz for maybe spot on, Jimi, Beck, Page, but it sounds cool for EJ stuff. Mind you, the new version of the BK Tube Driver is THEE pedal for EJ stuff.

    I got a chance to try one out during a visit to the Musictoyz store while in Maine a few weeks back. I was up to play with some friends, brought my amp, and got a chance to test drive it.


    All I can say is: Wow! It completely blew me away, and Teddy seemed to really like it with my set-up as well. I played again just the other night, and through a Maz 38 Sr, it just smoked.

    At bedroom volumes, it sounds.... meh. But with a cranked amp, it sounded gigantic and alive!

    meh = unimpressed

    That's all ;)



    All I mean to say is that if I'd bought it without the chance to play it loud, I'd have passed it by

    meh is the noise that one makes when he shrugs and this something is sorta average or uninteresting.

    infact, it nearly always accompanies an uninterested shrug as one goes, "meh..."

    I use a 200 lb , eternity and a cot 50 gold on my board....

    The 200 with the fuzz set low, maybe 9 o clock, into the eternity absolutley NAILS the EJ tone with a strat...........i mean it's almost freaky how much you can sound like EJ ( it's not the tone i go for all the time mind you - I have my own personal tone i strive to achieve- but it's there if you want it ).....


    These three OD's have ended my dirt search :)

    Indeed- it may be a Yiddishism, but I'm not certain

    Really, Eternity for EJ!! Never read that b4, cool. I always wanted an Eternity, seems like an Eternity actually! hehe I was not sure, because I read many times that his Eternity were having more and more one off's which is very collectible....However, very hard to get a one off that one person loves to death. Are all the eternity made now the same sounding? Look at me, crashing my own thread.... meh hehe While I am crashing away here, WHAT pedal best compares to the COT 50?

    the eternity does stack incredibly well behind the 200lbs. Gorgeous Combo though.

    well - the 200 into an eternity nails the EJ tone IMO. All the eternity's sound great. I have a burst and just the standard black one for sale on the lovepedal webpage - I like the standard black the best. But I've tried a few different ones over the years and they all sound fantastic with slight variations, again the current standard one being the best IMHO....\

    What pedal best compares to a cot 50 ?? Boy i dont know, it fairly unique because it's so tranparent, cleans up incredibly well and gives you that plexi goodness- check proguitarshop.com and check out the video review - that gives a good idea of the sound.

    Where did you buy your E? Where is the cheapest dealer???

    Does any other fuzz compare to the 200lbs? A Skreddy or a Jetter?????

    Here's what I do. If I'm curious about
    a pedal, I buy one and try it out. Then
    if I don't like it, I sell it. If I do like it, I
    keep it. If I like it a ton, I put it on
    my board.

    has anyone had a problem with their 200 feeding back? if i roll the volume back to tv volumes it works fine but the second i turn it up to actually be heard in a mix it feedsback, and not the roar the ice pick. emailed lovepedal about it and nothing back for months.

    it would rank alongside the foxrox cc2 and fuzz factory as one of my favourites....even more so probably because of the price and its standalone capabilities.
    my only thing with it would be that it doesnt do lower gain stuff so much. but i was nailing everything from beatles to zep to sabbath with mine.
    great with a treb boost when running it nice and fat.
