Short setup and strike times at our shows prompted me to put together a pedalboard a year or so ago. For the most part it's worked out fine, but I've been struggling with my fuzz pedal sound since - I can't seem to get a decent output from the fuzz (regardless of model*) and it tends to sound thin. I've had some other gear changes along the way and it's hard for me to pin down just what the cause is. I've read enough articles and forum entries about buffers and impedance to make me go cross eyed, I've tried swapping pedal orders and cables and can't seem to get it right. I'm hoping someone with more experience than me could make a suggestion as to how I could solve this... * fuzz pedals I've tried - NY Big Muff - Russian Big Muff (currently on the board) - Shin Ei FY-2 (w/ output gain mod, my fave fuzz pedal) - Shin Ei FY-2 Clone Here's my pedal chain: TU-2 --> Crowther Hotcake --> Big Muff --> DM-2 --> Kill Switch I play lipstick pickup guitars (so low output) into a Satellite Elmer. My pedals are all powered by a T-Rex Fuel Tank Jr. Your thoughts / advice would be appreciated! If there's any information I neglected to add, please let me know.
