    Well ... if ever you are feeling uncertain, just post a clip of something and as long as I’m around I’ll celebrate it. They always seem to work for me!

    Finally snagged a Jext Telez Dizzy Tone OC44YJ online tonight. The NKT is on the board but the OC44YJ was the one I wanted originally.

    I really want to try the original and v5 too... but that is a lot of money to drop on different variations of the same pedal by the same company.

    I have the v5, "Triple Black," and I've played one of the larger wedge versions, but I'm not sure what transistors were in the wedge.

    Unless you're really chasing minutia, I think any of them would be great. (not that there's anything wrong with chasing minutia)

    This fuzz is like a steam roller, and when it's bearing down on you, I doubt you'll care all that much about whether it's ten feet tall or eleven feet tall (or painted yellow or red.) I bet any of them would work just fine, at least for guitar. They talk about the v5 being better for bass.

    Thanks, very nice to hear that. The "theme" was a prerecorded loop in my Line6 DL4 played in reverse that I occasionally speed up to doublespeed, I think you meant those. I improvised on top of the loop. Both the loop and the lead had the fuzz mutant on.

    I could tell on your prog tune you had a sense for drums. It's great because when one composes or improvises the rhythm is often part of it, and one sometimes can't communicate the piece of music otherwise.

    Your prog tune nailed some tonal themes of the genre, with a nod to the early Mahavishnu/Beatles style arpeggiating. Fun stuff. Cut my teeth on that genre back in the day before the 80's temporarily ruined popular electric music for me. You helped me revisit those days lol.

    Don't mean to derail this amazing thread, just to celebrate the lovely music members post here.

    Yes... amazingly creative stuff posted from all corners...!

    If youre into prog, check out my former band Temporal Chaos Project. "Former" cause the singer, sadly, passed away last year... :( (or was it the year before? I dunno? what is "time" anyway...)

    This backing is one of my compositions and Henry (the singer) wrote all lyrics and vocal melodies... Fuzz is Tornita (oscillating in places... ;) )

    Enjoyed. So sorry to hear about your bud. Enjoyed his singing, kinda masculine in the Marillion flavor a bit. Glad yer puttin that Tornita to good use. Otherwise I'd try to talk you out of it lol. Nice oscillation at the end.

    Settings were fuzz on full, other settings minimizing synth effects, with a bit of vibrato:

    Nice! Let us know the differences with the Nkt. I’ve played the first version in big and smaller enclosures, and an oc44 that was a later v8. The v8 had a bit too much gain for my vintage fuzz liking. I prefer the first version in the big box (more sag than the smaller enclosure), such a mean fuzz, love it. But I’ve wanted to try the oc44yj for a long time! Contact me if you ever want to let it go..

    I made a low budget fuzz VLOG.... I only have 3 fuzz pedals so I condensed the 3 into the first episode and as I get a new fuzz I’ll make another one.

    In the first one look at (basically just Noodle around with)...the:

    -Joyo Voodoo Octave
    -Way Huge Swollen Pickle
    - Devi Ever Hyperion



    Now originally I had done some jams with the fuzzes for the VLOG too but including all the good material I ended up with would’ve made the video super long. So I used that to make another video. So if you like Jam Band style stuff check this one out. I use the Voodoo Octave in the first Jam and the second one I use the Hyperion and was really feeling that last solo and it’s a great example of how awesome the Hyperion can sound.

    This just arrived yesterday. Just had enough time this morning before getting on a plane to London today. It's pretty great. Serial number 1 of 10 made (I think Spruce Effects has one left):

    That's the one I asked about in my last post. How fuzzy does it get? And if it's not too much to ask, how would you describe the fuzz? Have a nice flight, Ed!

    <Edited to add that the last one sold while I was adding it to the cart. That sucks. >
