Is this a silicon fuzzface clone, muff or something completely original?
It's loosely based on a Si FF. Quoth David Mains:
"Yarp its a YAFF. I don't mention the Fuzz Face connection in the description on the site as I'd consider it wrong to do so. As in, if you wanted a true vintage sounding Fuzz Face and bought a Meathead you would not be a happy bunny. The biasing is wide open on the Meathead, its bigger and more modern in its fuzziness than say how a Fuzz Face is biased. I didn't tune the circuit for clean up....some geetars and amps you'll get good clean up but its not in the plan. The Meathead is supposed to break things."
Awesome, thanks arem!!
Wasn't that the term Archie Bunker used to refer to his son-in-law?
I think that was "damned meathead."
One knob, one stomp switch = no thinking = Meathead.
I remember Archie defining Meathead as "Dead from the neck up."
It's closer to the Colorsound One Knob Fuzz but that's just a Fuzz Face variant anyways. I really like the Meathead for sludge and doom stuff. It doesn't really do singing, overly smooth stuff like a lot of Fuzz Face clones. I could get it to clean up well with my Strat but that's about it.
It's cool if you want a lot of bass, I can get it to clean up with Strats as well. It's kind of like a FF with a lot more bass and more modern sounding (as others have said).
