    I swear, I heard a little "Wichita Lineman" in there! Sounds like loads of fun! "That's the sound of unemployment son!"

    cool! I decided to give it a try. I’m going to compare it to my FoxRox CC hybrid(s).

    Thank you for kind words.
    I have a fuzz dilema now. What would be a reliable fuzz, capable of some sort of FuzzFaceish or MK1ish sustain AND chord recognition for a live theater band? Because the band consists of actors (who are also good musicians) and they jump from acting to playing and singing, I can't burden them with i.e. adjusting knobs on guitar, adjusting biases for temperature compensation etc...
    Something that sounds good once you set it with a Tele full on. And it has to be obtainable within a week in Oslo.
    In a previous production, I wanted to use the ge Dunlop FF but gave up on it because I couldn't set the right sound with Tele on full. And the guitarist got too nervous when I tried to make him use volume knob for color.
    What do?

    Switch gears a little and go for a Basic Audio Nonts or a Black Arts Ritual.

    I will check them out, thanks.
    The only time that I succesfuly 'sold' a fuzz to a live band in theater production, it was a Carcosa. Which I am also considering.

    Real fuzz: Magnetic FX White Atom. Probably more available in EU. Rocker fuzz? DOD Carcosa!

    I had some GC credit due to an backorder that got cancelled. So, a Hoof just showed up. Jeez. Maybe it’s just me, but that thing is awesome. It’s kind of putting me in a tough spot trying to find room for it on my board.

    Playing in a loud trio right now. Fuzz utopia.

    I don't like soaring leads ..a la Gilmore/ Metallica...except Neil Yoing and Neu type stuff or Slayer ( free jazz solos in metal!) I know they don't use fuzz really, which is my favorite sound.

    I love some tangled up, broken, African hendrix styles...

    What fuzzed out lead players are your jam?

    Jack White, Marc Ford, Doyle Bramhall II, Dan Auerbach, Josh Homme, Joey Santiago, John Frusciante... And of course the classics like Jimi, Gilmour, SRV, Gibbons etc.

    Love that The Pixies made your list!!! Frank Black is such a great song writer and Kim Deal- yeah!

    You put up some names I have never heard of, awesome! New sounds to hear- thank you!

    Ordered a Mad Professor Fuzz32 today. Seems promising. Should be here Tuesday for me to get my fuzz on.

    David Torn evokes magic rooted in a broad array of traditions.

    Joe Gore reaches into a grab bag of all sorts of great players that includes a great many Africans.

    I'm interested in Chank and John's list along with David and Joe's =).
