could be a FUZZ? OK many of you TGP peeps know this.. but for those that don't-
Fantastic- thanks for sharing that.
I would have liked to hear you use the middle pickup a bit as well, since that's my favorite pickup on a Strat
You gots a treble bleed in that guitar?
Super cool - never knew about that!
Whoooda thunk it? Actually I may have done something similar just by accident. Sounds great.
Thanks for posting Pete.
Getting those cleans is one of the reasons I love a good germanium Fuzz Face. They can be finicky at times but the overall payoff is worth it.
You don't need one with a fuzz face or similar, it'll clean up real well as Pete showed there. Although I do like treble bleed circuits too, have them in a handful of guitars and they work well with ODs like a ts9 for example
So unbelievably counter intuitive for me. My first pedal was a fuzz (of dubious origin) and it and my guitar were always dimed. I sounded really, really, really awful and have avoided fuzz pedals like a bad prom date. Now, off to Reverb.com...
Yeah, I’m just wondering because sometimes a treble bleed doesn’t work well when rolling down with a fuzz but I guess that’s dependent on the bleed circuit used and/or the pedal. Some may work better than others.
Nothing new, but nice to see.
you're right, depends on the pickups and circuit values. I've had good luck with them and fuzzes, sometimes the taper can be a bit more abrupt though.
Woah, awesome tip. Sounds great!
Another great video - info and playing.
Yes, I have tried this and it WORKS!!
Does it have to be a germanium fuzz? That one is a little pricey.
So that IS cool. But you can get the same thing from a good compressor dialed in correctly.
Very interesting and notable find about the germanium + start combo. I think back in the day guys like Hendrix really squeezed as much as they could out of one pedal just simply because there wasn't a plethora of pedals to choose from like we have today. The results defined a tone for generations. Great post!
?? are you sure about that?
actually, maybe that's kind of what the fuzz is doing if you feed it a low signal? a blunt sort of compression?
Thanks! I'll have to try that tomorrow when I can crank the Strat.
Now how to do this with a RAT! Because what thread can be complete without rooting for the RAT?
I love a good germanium fuzz.
