Catalinbread Manx Loaghtan (a muff with baxandall treble & bass control)
Had one of these years ago...
...sounded great with any guitar and being able to control both levels on the fly made it a truly expressive fuzz. I'll get another one if it ever comes along at the right time/price.
No love for the WH Swollen Pickle? A very versatile pedal.
I'm loving the dynamics of my Earthquaker Devices Dream Crusher fuzz.
+1. Here is a Muff style pedal that has no problem cutting through.
Devi ever Rocket. With the touch dynamic tremolo and chaos switch, it s a crazy pedal from mellow fuzz to just plain crazy.
In response to the last post I was actually going to get the Devi Ever Rocket before I switched last minute to ordering the DE Shoegazer. I'm a huge fan of both the smashing pumpkins and my bloody valentine (the pedals are vaguely built to emulate those two bands, in order respectively) and knew that Devi Ever made incredible fuzz units. But when I read the personal insults and attacks that Billy made to Devi I didnt want a pedal that would alwayys be associated with that. However, I understand that I obviously can't hold a grudge against Corgan as he is literally my favorite guitarist of all time (hence the BC signature strat I spent over a months salary to buy in my picture, my longtime use of the big muff, all sorts of other pumpkin gear I use, and last but not least my username siva). Basically what im getting at was that I agree the rocket is a killer pedal but I just couldnt choose it over the shoegazer. Sorry for the real long post but the whole Billy Corgan/ Devi Ever situation was brutal for me to take. It sucks to see such a bad side of a guy whos guitarplaying made me the player who I am today. Again sorry about the huge post but this is exactly why I started the thread to be honest and I would be intested in discussing the topic further if anyone else is.
Oh and also I'm having a great time checking out videos of all the pedals you guys recommended. The only one I've actually played though is a fuzz factory which was awesome. Love the origin of symmetry sound.
I love it, but it's the only fuzz I currently have. I agree, it fattens up a Tele something fierce. It also produces serrated ice-picks to destroy all your head-holes if needs be.
I especially like stacking it with an overdrive pedal; chunk away at the chords with only OD, then hit the fuzz for some face-slapping solos. At the right settings, it seems to boost every frequency into pure madness.
Slightly OT, but check this out (Corgan Related)
Interesting video. He's talented, highly intelligent.... but a control freak royal PITA!
It gets so little love, but my fav fuzz of all time is the MXR Blue Box. I mainly play telecasters and this pedal never leaves my board.
I've been thinking about getting a Blue Box for awhile.
Can it be tamed?
I mean, can it actually be used in a musical fashion, or is it more of a noise thing? Either way, I think I'm going to pick it up. Just curious.
Oh, and is there a difference between the script and the block logo?
Tamed is a bit too strong of a word for the Blue Box. At the end of the day, it is still a fuzz box. You can get a straight fuzz through octave fuzz (Atari tones) using the blend knob. It gets treated as a one trick pony, but there is more to it than that. I've used it for sonic nonsense, but I also use to when I play later Rory Gallagher tones (like Bad Penny). It can be musical when you want it to be.
I can't help with that last question. I have a reissue and it has always treated me right.
+1 on the Muff...took me a while to be able to "tune" it to a sound a liked, but when I finally hit on it boy howdy what a screamer.
Usual suspects Tonebenders and Muffs.
D*A*M MKII Pro, D*A*M Greasebox and a homebrew Muff for the most part.
Got to love fuzz!
Can you guys recommend some devi ever pedals that can do black keys tones? Most of the pedals seem to have too much gain. I like the Brown pedal but hate having to click thru every link to find out about each pedal
