    This is a great pedal. Like the upper half of a good Big Muff - the big muff for people who don't want to put effort in to make it sound good.

    Webb, maybe you didn't make it to the end. There's no missing the fuzz that comes in for the last 1/4 of the clip.

    The Top Fuel is my favorite of the Skreddys. It has lot's of complex grit, body, and sustain, but without the plumped out lows of a classic muff. I particularly like it with the neck pickup on a strat to get my Gilmour on. :D (I have a Pinkmour on order with DonneR right now.)

    Thanks guys.

    The Top Fuel comes in at about 2:36. It's a good pedal, but I think you'd be hard pressed to get it to do a real clean boost for you. It's a pretty fuzzy machine.

    Very Tom Waits/Marc Ribot type of vibe. Great tones, Munky.

    Fatback, could you tell me about the "Pinkmour"?

    The Pinkmour is the same pedal as the Top Fuel, but in a custom painted DonneR-box with a brick-wall mofif. ;)

    Oh, that's pretty neat. I just assumed that it was a Gilmour type of distortion.
    I was watching a pinkmour vid (a fatback vid, of course :dude ) and was digging the tones you were getting.

    I'm not sure why you'd want to use it as a clean boost, I just made the comment in response to the question earlier in the thread whether I had used it for that purpose.

    I do own a Tonelab. Neat unit but I haven't used mine in a while.

    The rhythm guitar on both channels is a Heritage H-550 Thinline with a bigsby. The lead is a Rick Kelly Abstrat - an excellent custom made strat type guitar with one hell of a paint job. There's no amp, just a Boss GT-8 an Analogman BiComp and the featured effects.

    By the way, unlike many Big Muff clones, the Top Fuel really cuts through. On this recording the TF is mixed more than 6db lower than anything else, and more than 9db lower than the other leads.
