    ^^^ 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.

    Did I say best? Oops I meant vest. It's my vest setting for when I'm wearing this:

    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.

    Well, I can't provide photos right now because I still haven't gotten on another photo sharing site after the Photobucket thing.

    Off the top of my head:

    Basic Audio w/ a Vorg Warp Sound and a SRS EQ Exciter in the same enclosure
    Basic Audio Dirt Halo w/ switchable buffer and master volume (not sure if John's done another exactly like it)
    Basic Audio Drive-Over Intermod (an Electra Distortion/Ghetto Stomp circuit w/ switchable octave up)
    Basic Audio Wildcat w/ a FUZZ cut switch
    Dirge clone of an Ibanez Bottom Booster
    DOD 250 clone w/ socketed clipping diodes (has red LEDs in right now)
    Joe Gagan Faux Boomer w/ a wide sweep in a big DeArmond shell

    Probably some others I'm forgetting. I'm usually pretty happy with off the shelf pedals though.

    This. And although John has really said enough, I've got a couple of hens of my own to let out....

    I find Chankgeez provocative in the best way - - provocative of thought, consideration, and the spice of laughter. This is not surprising, since I know him personally to be thoughtful, considerate, and seriously funny and irreverent in the way that deflates inflexibility and patterned "thinking."

    He's an original and he is musical and attacks like this have no place here, especially not against someone like him. I find it unfortunate that anyone perceives him as a negative influence, let alone engages in such a personal attack on him.

    I also find it ironic, because on more than one occasion he has defended statements of others that I found offensive and advised me to consider (perhaps unknown) circumstances or factors and to keep an open mind because so often circumstances change and differing points of view plant the seeds for increased understanding.

    I believe he means well and is one of the key contributors to the spirit of this place. Hopefully, with a little reflection, some others who don't yet might begin to see him in this light.

    Regardless, I think the last thing we want to see put into place here is some kind of "performance" based test that must be passed to allow one to speak.

    Updated version with some more stuff going on... left speaker is fuzz + delay, right speaker is same fuzz (with tone down) + delay + phase. Working on making it into a full track with vocals, drums and everything.

    This thing arrived the other day, and it is effing righteous.

    I've had a number of MkII style pedals, and I currently have a killer, vintage-spec one from Jimmy Behan with OC75s. But this Supa from @basicaudio is like someone read my mind and knew what I would want to change about the vintage design:

    - significantly (like, WAY) more output
    - decent clean up for different shades of fuzz
    - works equally well into a clean or dirty amp without collapsing in on itself in a sea of mud and compression if the amp is too dirty

    Love it. With the Fat near full up, the Snarl fully CCW, and Fuzz at noon or so, it's a dead ringer for my Behan MkII. But with a LOT more gain on tap if desired. Of course you can change things up from there and get a lot of different sounds and adjust things to fit your rig, which is really excellent.

    And while this is not something someone would buy this pedal for, it's something I always check out: the pedal excels as a dirty/fuzzy boost. With the gain, snarl and fat fully CCW, it's like a super filthy version of my treble booster. Again, tons of output in this thing.

    I think I've got my ideal MkII (or at least MkII DNA) pedal. About all I would want different is a big-ass wedge enclosure ...

    I've been chasing some distinct fuzz tones and hoped y'all might lend an ear and some suggestions.

    I posted a thread on this, but maybe this is a more appropriate place to ask how to get this kind of sound, which is probably a tiny amp or direct in. I don't know of anything that gets this kind of wheezy, fuzzy, but unsaturated breakup. Tried a JHS Crayon but at higher settings it can't handle fast successions of notes. Not sure if the Colour Box does the same thing. Fuzz @ 3:13



    This one is super nasally and gnarly. Going off the demos available, the Companion FY-2 seems the most likely candidate to me. Fuzz @ 4:58



    Another one from the same album, maybe not quite so unique but I really like the attack and the way it cuts through.


    Here's a picture of some fuzzes he's used live. I'm familiar with the Maestro but haven't tried the Tone Benders, maybe the Sola Sound (MK1.5?)

    I stand by my observations and opinions, thanks for
    sharing yours. :)

    I feel there are subtle and passive-aggressive forms
    of jabbing that are not always playful, or in the spirit
    of this thread (or what I believed it to be), and then
    there are overt statements that leave no room for guessing
    like mine. When I have finally had my full of the less than
    playful subterfuge and trolling my every comment I am going
    to say something.

    The reply to my comments about clean-up and shades
    on fuzz is a world-wide known phenomena. It is not
    my invention. To just dismiss it as "so you mean
    distortion," and then backpedal with "that's how I use
    mine," is just typical chankgeez fare.

    Then the icing on the cake is the whole "you don't need to get
    defensive," schtick. :facepalm

    It's typical. Troll, incite, passive-aggressively undermine and
    then be like, "What's your beef, Bro?" :dunno

    The odd thing is I had chank on ignore for just that
    kind of thing. Then 2018 rolled around and I think, "How
    about turning over a new leaf?" I don't want to box
    anyone in based on their past.

    Well, it turned out less than I had hoped for. :(

    Anywho, I hope you guys (and gals if any linger) have a
    a great New Year. I mean it sincerely. :beer

    Really? Do you even know what it is? You can't directly speak
    to someone and reply and share your level of discontent
    with their responses to your statements and be "passive-aggressive."

    So, yeah. You need to study up, brah! Really, there is some useful
    information in the link below. Read it and learn. That direct enough
    for ya! :)

    And feel free to have the last word. This is my last post in this thread. :wave

    This thread is usually quite peaceful, perhaps because we can all channel our aggression through our fuzz boxes. I suggest we keep it that way

    When all else fails, play drums. That helps no matter what's pissing me off
