Just got a Basic Audio Solar Myth fuzz face clone. I love the sound of the pedal, but it doesn't seem to cut through when I have other pedals engaged. Any tips? Editing with more details... My tone generally comes from stacking light boosts to get progressively dirtier tones from my Goodsell Super 17. I have the amp set with a tiny bit of edge, and there are a handful of pedals on my board that add a few db's each until I get the tone I need for a certain tune or solo. These boost stages come from things like an EP Boost, SP Comp, Dr. Scientist RRR, and for out-and-out dirt, a Plimsoul. I normally have 1 or 2 of these engaged for rhythm (with guitar volume turned down at times) and 2-3 engaged for a solo. I have the Solar Myth first in my chain (*after* my Polytune). It sounds great on its own. When I try to add one of the boost stages after that, it doesn't do what I expect (i.e. raise the overall level of signal). It gets very muddy and messy and not much louder. Adding delay after it is a predictable mess too. My thought is to set the fuzz up as if it will be the only thing on when it is engaged. This will mean setting the Level control quite a bit higher than unity and rolling off the guitar volume as needed. Is this the typical way these are used? Sorry for the goofy question. This is my first "real" fuzz, replacing a Lunar Module.
