    Just bought a Muff with tone wicker but I'm taking it back. I love the endless sustain but hate the garbled attack and lack of articulation. Does anyone know of a pedal with similar sustain but has a nice crisp, snappy attack with no fuzz garble?

    Yep. And it's Canadian too. The Blackout Effectors Musket fuzz. The focus control does a phenomenal job helping you get as detailed and articulate of a muff sound as you can possibly get. Using one on my board these days and loving it. The demos out there just don't do it justice.

    I have a Fulltone Soulbender. Aren't Butler Tube drivers about a million bucks each? I will check them out if they are not too pricey.

    Uhm, those Blackout Effectors pedals sound amazing. I'd never heard of them.

    Out in Vancouver. www.blackouteffectors.com Scott at www.axeandyoushallreceive.com carries them, so you could order one in Canada, try it out and if it is the wrong pedal, ship it back to Scott. All that you lose are your shipping costs. Actually being just one province over from Blackout, you could probably have them ship you one on the same terms.

    I just got a Swollen Pickle and it can get a lot cleaner and you can dial out the heavy bass/low mids.

    My big muff and my barber trifecta both have that warbly garble when sustaining...it is very irritating...is this a typical fuzz thing??

    For me it is not the sustain but the initial attack. The sustain is smooth and violin like but I hate the "hhwack garble garble, neut" that accompanies each newly picked note.

    What do you guys think of the Fix'd Fuzz? That one sounds pretty spectacular, too.

    Just some food for thought... The Musket forced me to sell my OG triangle knob muff... It's that good... and that much smaller... and that much more versatile... and that much more dependable, quiet, sturdy... I love it. Can't be beat for the money either.

    I have a byoc triangle and it isnt garbled into my amp when it is clean or distorted. Gives me feedback at most any volume!

    i've got a semi-hollow and a swollen pickle mkII... controlled feedback is pure bliss!
    the pickle is highly adjustable so you can filter out the mess if you dont want it.
