And my incoming Basic Audio Supa mk1 has left Copenhagen. In case you were wondering.
I absolutely cannot wait to hear your take, and whatever clip you might make, with that fuzz, Lauri. Really excited you are getting one.
I loved your playing and your ideas in your Fuzz Mutant clip, by the way - didn't celebrate it beyond a simple "like" just because ... I dunno. That fuzz ... I had one and might have one again ... maybe it's too great.
When I had mine, I had a certain player's sounds in my mind and I could not shake them and have a thought of my own - not that my thoughts are all that great or anything, but my playing these days is all about finding my own thoughts, however diminutive they may be.
Really that has nothing to do with the fuzz, does it. I guess it's more that the very distinctive characteristics of the Fuzz Mutant triggers a kind of bias for me and ... I dunno, it's really weird and uncomfortable. Something for me to work on.
I do hear people really doing their own thing with the Mk1 fuzzes - each clip with those fuzzes, they are all different and cool and that's interesting. You can kind of hear the uniqueness of everyone's hands, and their own voices with the Mk1 and Supa Mk1 fuzzes ... love that. I wonder what that's about.
Or maybe I just don't recognize Mark Ronson-esques when I hear them, I dunno
tl;dr ~ can't wait to hear what you'll do with your Supa!
Listen to this on repeat to cleanse yourself:
HA! our DJ genius to the rescue. I think you've called attention to that one before - anyway I remember it. Funny what jumps out for me this time in that clip is the wicked wah playing - just as I'm digging into wahs. You're in everybody's heads, aren't you? Yes you are. How are you doing that?
Purple rays, all in your brain...
Thank you for your kind words. I also feel like I'm just in the beginning of the search for my own voice in the context of solo guitar improvisations with the looper and all.
Really excited to get my hands on the Supa and see what comes out. Will definately record a clip when I get it. I just got a new Macbook so I can make a lot more hifi recordings in the future.
I'm really digging the guy at 1:13 that taught David Byrne how to dance.
To all you afficiandos of delicious furry walls of sound, do you know what amp/pedal combo got Aguaturbia this tone? Was a Fuzz Face being used?
It leaves a very chocolatey aftertaste! Melts in your mouth.
DJ Genius is a great nickname, chank
Not as great as Professor Murder though

My beef with most Mk I's are that the builders can't not "enhance" the design. The Mk 1's did not have much sustain, and most builders try to dial that in, smooth them out, compress/limit them, add tone controls, which eventually sucks the life out of it.
Don't know what that is, but it sounds great!
I dance like this
Because it feels so damn good
If I could dance better
Well you know that I would
Well you know that I would

My latest treble booster purchase has the same issue, must have gotten a fair bump in the mail somewhere between Poland and Australia and it's got a constant crackly vinyl record noise. Thankfully the builder is a top notch bloke and is sending me a replacement board!
Hmmm... I’m going to have to open my shig and turn things up!
Sounds like this
One who has enhanced the Mk1 successfully is Ian of Ghost Effects. The Bias and Tone knobs on his 2065's are the most useful additions to the Mk1 design I've used, while keeping the base sound as vintage as possible. You can dial in the bias for sustain, artifacts or splutter and the tone knob can get rid of some of the low end flub when using humbuckers.
My jerms Mk Ultra has similar improvements but is a much more unruly beast, more like a Mk1, a Supa and a Maestro FZ-1 got thrown into the machine from The Fly, along with a flamethrower.
I love Jerms take on the MKI, anyone want to trade theirs for my Blackstrap Fuzz Face?? Haha.
I'm just gonna say to each their own.
I love when builders let me dial a fuzz in for different roles.
Yeah man! Unleash it!
