    Speaking of the BA Orpheum, picked one up on recommendations from here in fuzzy land.
    Another winner. Thanks guys.
    Keep up the good work!

    it seems to me a balls out fuzz that cleans up well gives you a massive pallette to diddle with, which I appreciate more than not.

    on that note, I revisited my Spooky Tooth yesterday and was surprised to discover how many tones I can get out of it with my vol knob. from robot-on-acid bleeps down to raunchy crunch, and even almost clean. great box!

    Good to know, once again my Spooky Tooth:

    Is uh.... Is that a spooky tooth with all pots replaced with a resistor within the resistance range of the replaced pot, or is that a spooky tooth with some resistors removed completely?

    You know, I'm not exactly sure, you'll have to ask John. I think it's a Spooky Tooth with everything maxxed. :D

    Resistance is futile!
    It was made with everything cranked.
    Volume mid way maybe.

    Trolling right out of the gate in 2018, eh? :huh
    I see you haven't changed your most tried and
    true ways in the New Year. ;)

    Why would anyone would take the
    multitude of tones in the ST---the sheer
    range and diversity---and collapse it in
    such a reductionistic way???

    If you can get electrons to dance, juke,
    and jive in all sorts of cool and unique
    ways why force them into a corner and
    limit their variability and mobility? :huh

    :confused: It's a legitimate question. At least that's the way I use distortion. :dunno

    You don't have to get defensive about it. :console

    Sweet! I thought maybe you had “bypassed” a knob or two and came up with some uber aggressive version, like removing the tone stack from a muff.

    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)?
