Is the "fuzz" feature on the Fulltone OctaFuzz any good? I might buy the big box version.

  • Is the "fuzz" feature on the Fulltone OctaFuzz any good? I might buy the big box version.

    There's a store in town that's selling a big box Fulltone OctaFuzz, it'll come to appx. $100 taxes-in.

     

    I'm already a sucker for Fulltone pedals seing as I already own five of them and this one has got my attention.  I already have a Voodoo Lab Proctavia but I might just buy this Fulltone OctaFuzz and sell the Proctavia.

     

    I like the fact that there's a selector switch on the OctaFuzz that toggles between "OctaFuzz" and "Fuzz" modes.  This pedal could maybe be used as a 2-in-1 pedal?  I'm not 100% sure how useful the "fuzz" mode is since I've never demoed this particular pedal but a couple of videos made it sound promising.

     

    Are any of you guys familiar with the "fuzz" feature of this pedal and what do you think?

    The plain fuzz is pretty good on the OctaFuzz. Kinda like a Fuzz Face but maybe a little more ratty. For $100 you can't go wrong and you can flip it and get your money back if you don't like it.

      I've never played it myself but rumor is Gary Clark Jr. uses one a lot and his fuzz sounds are pretty awesome IMO.

    Yes, I have the big box version myself and both modes are excellent. Like what was previously said it's akin to a fuzz face. It's pretty damn big sounding.

      I know Josh Homme likes it, and that's good enough for me!

    Doood, Homme plays an Ultimate Octave, which is a Foxx TM derivate. Different pedal is different.

    Both modes on the Octafuzz sound really good. Describing the non octave mode as a ratty fuzz face is spot-on.
    Take it
