  • Peter Cornish Fuzz, Anyone?

    Anyone here tried or own one of these?
    Is it an original fuzz or is it a Fuzz Face, Big Muff, tonebender derivative?

        If it didn't say "Mass Street Music" on it, I'd think that Olle was selling his already.

        Of course, now that we've made fun of him for selling it, he'll keep it, even if it's out of spite! So technically that's still selling it!

          I suspect Olle sold his Cornish pedal

            I did a poll last week about it and according to the man himself, he still has the pedal. Of course, this guy would sell his own grandmother if he knew he could get a couple of Exchange Rate points out of it

              i still have it......its the hugest, fattest, most crunchy like fuzzmachine in the world. Big Cheese and Swollen Pickle sounds tame in comparison. Then you are at gainlevel 12 0 clock and it justs keeps on bringing more and more fuzz/distortion without ever getting lost in the mix or sounding compressed or without string-separation.

              But its not 500 dollars better than my Foxey Fuzz....i will pull out the P-2 when i need it, not selling it yet anyways...it really is THAT good. If you were to try one youd know..... Theres something in it that makes everything sound good....sometimes almost too good.

                heh, it's just that you bought a Twin Reverb and are now looking at ES-335's that I figured you got an offer you couldn't refuse ...

                what bugs me is the Cornish circuit, it could very well be a souped up FZ-2, but if you take a peek inside, the warranty is void, right ? that's not very nice of Cornish ...
                I zstill have to try my first Cornish pedal, have been on the phone with someone who owned a couple of Cornish pedals, but he was looking for buyers, and I just wanted to try the pedals, not buy 'em, I'm done with buying pedals

                    the p-2 sounds nothing like a fz-2, i had a fz-2 last week.....its not one similar thing to those two....well it is a fuzz.

                    if you were to try a p-2 youd know what im talking about.

                      It's hard to describe the sound of Cornish pedals, they just don't sound like anything else really. I have an SS2 and it's the same way, totally unique.

                        Olle, congrats on your new purchase! What kinda Twin is it? A 65 reissue? A vintage SF/BF?

                        I've kind of put a little bit of $$$ into my gear budget lately. Between that selling some pedals, I have about $1000 USD to spend on gear.

                        A local music store called me to tell me I have a store credit. I *know* it's a computer/salesperson error because I keep track of every dollar I have. In fact, going through my records, I *know* it's a salesperson error in my favor That's not going to keep my from spending it! It's exactly enough for a brand new Ibanez TS-808 reissue which if I get will send to Robert Keeley to get modded to vintage specs. Right now I'm trying to decide between the TS-808 or putting in the extra $$$ and getting a MicroKORG.

                        On the subject of fuzzes, I've owned and played a number of them, vintage/reissue Big Muffs of all types, standard issue (ie. Boss, DOD) and even some hand made boutique ones and out of all of them, the best fuzz I think was the Analogman Sun Face NKT 275. It just irks me that Mike didn't/couldn't put a 9V adapter and LED into it!

                        I'm kinda GASing a fuzz right now and the Analogman is top on my list but given the shortcomings, I'd consider other options. I remember there were some other folks who also made Fuzz Face clones using NKT 275 but can't think of any of the brands at the moment (anyone know off-hand?)

                          its a -74 that has been totally blackfaced, new front etc...no master volume...and modded to sound like the old blackfaces, its 100 watts....sweet reverb and a great vibratochannel....

                          i got a good deal i think.

                            Nice! I think you got a great deal too! Remember to post pr0n pics of it when you get it!

                            I'm looking for something small right now, like a vintage blackface Princeton Reverb or an old Harvard Tweed.

                              Kestral, I had the Analogman NKT275 Sun face and used it in my rig for a few weeks. It's a great pedal, no doubt, but not best suited to the Vox sound for me...

                              I found the Keeley Fuzz Head to be a much better match. It's very hard to say exactly why, it just sounded closer to how I wanted my amp to sound.

                              I would say it's a little more "hi-fi" than the Sun Face, certainly with more gain and definitely with more volume. The Keeley also kept the character of my amp in tact far better than the Analogman, which suited me.

                              It has the 9v input plus led of course! Not to mention the extra silicon gain stage. Well worth checking out if you're the type of guy who doesn't much go for the "deep" and "fuzzy" fuzz pedals.
