I bought a fuzz pedal off a fellow TGP member and stuck it on my board today and quickly discovered that this was one of those fuzz pedals that needed to be at the very front of my signal chain. Once I moved it, it sounded a hundred times better ... but it got me wondering what it is about fuzz pedals that makes certain ones not work well when placed after other sorts of pedals. In my case, it was my flanger pedal that was making the fuzz go all wonky. I literally know nothing about pedals (other than how to buy them endlessly,) so can anyone explain to me in stupid-person terms just what it is that makes some fuzz pedals so fickle? I have run into this issue with a few other fuzz pedals but never with any other type of pedal. Why is that?
