    Wot? Where?
    I don't. :oops:

    Obviously, I tried a bunch of different settings and that's the one I always kept coming back to (everything full on). That's where I thought it sounded best. :dunno

    Also, are these people trying to appeal to my :love: of purple (& distortoFUZZes)?

    Hey, I can vouch that Sir Chankgeez' approach works. :YinYang Also, consider his signal chain (I believe it's there in his profile). That Spooky Tooth with that signal chain is pure genius! :bow

    As for me, I like stranger things (not that Chank doesn't mind ya), and with the Orpheum I was recently privileged to try through the kindness of (non)strangers, through my rig (bigsby'd tele-ish slab w/firebird pups into Vibroluxish cleanishness), the stranger things most definitely came out to play with the volume knob rolled back.

    Set up as close as possible to my other, quite fine thank you very much germanium Orpheum build, and gain/git volume cranked, there were few hairs to divide them tonally. Start tweaking the extras on the Basic Audio and rolling back git volume, though, and suddenly I'm on the other side of a mirror into a *very* dark woods, while with the o. g. Orph. I'm still back in the basement rec room looking for a 12-sided die. :love: That stacked into a NeXt Distortion X had my previously gear-unaware singer writing me neXt-day emails about emotions'n'stuff. Tonight I'm Orpheum-less (an orpheum orphan) but you can bet I'll be rolling the volume back on my Gnarly.... :phones

    I found the Spooky Tooth I briefly owned to be really hissy...unless the fuzz control was all the way up, in which case it quietened right down!

    Perhaps it was trying to tell me something.

    Always wanted to know whether that hiss was normal or if mine was malfunctioning somehow.

    Any chance you're playing into a very loud and/or dirty amp? I find that any fuzz with a pre-gain (input gain) style fuzz control gets hissy into a dirty-ish amp unless the fuzz control is maxed.

    And since you get 99% the same sound turning down your guitar volume as turning down that fuzz knob on those type of pedals, I just keep it maxed.

    ^^^ Ha!

    For what it's worth, I think the PTD bone family of pedals are set up that way, too. At least they respond the same in my setup.

    I'm sorry you feel that way, Dave, I really don't know what to tell you. I'm not trying to upset you.

    You're certainly entitled to your opinions of my posting and my sound clips. There's no hard feelings on my part.

    That's the vest fuzz I have ever seen! Someone should build that
    in a more user-friendly enclosure. :aok

    Come on Dave (Respectfully) I don't think Jason is trolling here or being out of line.
    He's explained that he's not trying to offend or bring ill will.
    We value you both and your opinions as all the opinions here.
    Let's get back to the fuzz.
