My SFT Overdrive can get pretty fuzzy, but I also have an Ultimate Octave and a Cockfight on board
Fuzz has never interested me. I tend to like clean sounds, although I don’t mind the sound of an amp that is saturated and near the point of breakup. As a general rule, when I’m playing Rock or Country my sound tends to be reminiscent of the early ‘60s.
Fuzz, as an added effect, seemed to really take hold in the mid-to-late sixties, which coincided with my learning to play guitar. But my learning was based on the sounds I had heard from the late fifties to the early sixties, such things as Grady Martin playing lead on El Paso, Duane Eddy, Surf Music, The Ventures and Chet Atkins.
When the Stones released "Satisfaction" during the '60s every cover band in Perth had to play it, so all of us went out and bought cheap and usually backyard fuzz boxes. Then along came "Keep on Running" and "Spirit in the Sky" and the fuzz box became standard equipment!
Some classic fuzz.
Love my MXR Classic 103 Fuzz
Trying to get a pic to show, love this pedal
You want a pedal that sounds like a Youtube video ?
This was my first, for years it was my only pedal. Wish I remembered what happened to it.
Probably sounded better in retrospect than at the time
With the exception of my Big Muff Pi I really never got something from a fuzzpedal that I liked.
What’s the dc semi hollow?
Looks kinda like a Martin but it could be something from Europe.
Looks European for sure. Tried to find matching Guitar images on google last night, but couldn’t find one. Just peaked my interest. I could tell the other guy was playing a Guild.
Too cool, they should bring those back.
I am surprised we haven't heard from any Kemper guys. Doesn't it model effects as well? Couldn't you have a multitude pedals to work from?
Tom Waits, Kemper salesman
I don't use fuzz pedals a lot but I must like them because I keep buying them - just ordered another one today! I really like running an OD pedal into a fuzz pedal. Light OD into light fuzz setting sounds great when the combination of pedals is right. The best distortion sound around.
Coincidentally, one of the first effects I used/tried was a big borrowed Mosrite Fuzzrite. It was buzzy, muddy, and fizzy by my
recollection. Pondered getting the catlinbread Fuzzrite for some nostalgia.
So Micheal wasn't the first one glover.
A friend of mine just had a replica made of one of those.
