Got $37.95?Sounds awesome!
Does it have to be a germanium fuzz? That one is a little pricey.
Lol there's some funny comments in this thread. I do like stirring the pot sometimes. Did you LISTEN to the video? The FF is a classic as far as the roll-down/hyper Hendrixy top end stratty thing.Glass clean strat to me says great pickups, maple neck and a Hiwatt DR103. How did they get fuzz pedals out of this?
I first discovered this effect for myself with a kit-built 5E3 at conversational volume. I'd just got my first Ge Fuzzface, which was pretty exciting in itself ... then, as I always do with a new gadget, I rolled the guitar back to about 7 and was gifted with the even more exciting surprise of the finest, sweetest, bright-but-supported crystal clear clean I'd yet got out of my Strat.Sounds really good and I’m gonna give it a shot. The one thing that worries me though is that your base sound is a 50w Marshall with jumped channels just at the edge of breakup. That alone (without the fuzz) is WAY too loud for most clubs I play in. Any lower and I doubt it’ll sound as good as you demonstrate.
I have a silicon FF and it does clean up, just not quite to the degree you get with a Ge FF. And not as quickly; with the Ge FF, there shouldn't be too much perceptible volume drop before it gets really sparkly clean, whereas with an Si FF or other fuzz, you have to roll back further and there is usually quite a bit of a drop in level. Different dynamic response as well, the Ge FF reacting more to attack with the Strat's volume around 7 or 8. IME.Can a silicon Dunlop FF get you there?
yes, of course. you may have misunderstood, I was responding to runningman's post about what he thought were better glassy strat tones like WG, SoS. Obviously they are different, but all great of course. Pete is talking about the special cleans with the fuzz, not that it's the only way. It's a great way to go though, I've been doing it for 15 yrs or so in various situations.I could be wrong but I suspect Pete doesn't think these tones are what he is demonstrating when he specifically mentions Jimi Hendrix...?
I sure wouldn't put jimi's clean glassy tone in the same realm as SoS and WG.
Sparkly-rough clean. Makes perfect sense. I don’t use a completely clean tone unless it is some sort of Jazz thing. But some of the coolest Jazz guitar tones IMO have a little bit of hair on it some to speak. Um…I get similar tones from my treble booster. Definitely a different type of clean, kinda raunchy clean if that makes any sense. I love it
