    i know germanium fuzzface wants to see the guitar pickup directly, but if i plug in a passive DI (Radial JDI) and send the thru to the fuzzface, does the FF see the correct impedence or should i record post fuzzface, pre pedalboard?

    The fuzz face will likely react slightly differently, but I'd say go ahead and just give it a quick try. You won't hurt anything, and you may like it.

    A big aspect of the fuzz face is it reacts to picking dynamics so perhaps do a dry and a wet take to see if the feel is off when you run the dry take through it.

    but it won't do like a buffer and totally mess up the tone and dynamics? that's my guess since it's really a direct thru from the 1/4 in to the 1/4 out on the Radial, gonna make some experiments

    Show it the pickups whenever possible.
