    After the wah. But you have to make sure your wah is true bypass with no buffer. Any buffer in front of the fuzz will drastically change how it sounds and reacts - the change is not subtle or good.

    + 1. I keep my fuzz before everything except my wah and my Proctavia(I like to feed it into a fuzz like my Pro Bender or Fuzz Haze).

    How do you like the Brownie? And Fr8 trane, don't you have a modded one of those or was it a friend of yours?

    hey thanks guys!


    I really like the Brownie. It's doing everything I need it for when it comes to heavy, cranked Marshall flavors. the 808 style pedal I have is Chad's Tube Slammer. Another really good sounding pedal. Both for not a lot of bucks either.
    I have a Teese Wizard Wah w. fuzz friendly circuit, so I'm guessing I should be good to go.

    I'm so thinking about getting a Brownie, judging by the comments I've read, and the sound clips I've heard. Plus with the $130-135 price tag, it makes it easier to take the plunge on a pedal I haven't been able to try yet.

    My reduced gain brownie is my goto OD/dist box these days. I'm running it in conjunction with a timmy and each one kills by itself or stacked together.

    Fuzz Head doesn't care where it is too much...

    Yea, the FuzzHead plays very well with other pedals, it doesn't really care where it is in the chain. Try it before the TS, then after the TS, and use what sounds and works best for you. It wont clean up quite as well after a buffer also, so depends on what your after. I use mine as a lead boost mostly, so I run it after a FullDrive2 and Keeley BD2. Works for me!
    Best Regards!
