I saw this clip ...and now I need to know about Fuzz!
There are as many different sounding fuzz pedals as there are overdrives and distortions, if not more. You've got your Big Muff types which straddle the line with distortion and tend to be mid-scooped sounding. Then there are Fuzz Face types, which can clean up nicely like a OD and can act really well as a solo boost. Octave fuzzes like the Octavia. Then you get into the more off the wall types - Companion/FY-2, Univox, Scrambler, Devi-ever etc. which tend to be more over-the-top, spitting, gated or just plain crazy. I love fuzzes.
this came up in time for me. i was thinking of picking up a fuzz for my birthday in a couple weeks, and being a total electronics nerd, being able to switch diodes sounds really cool..not to mention that video made it sound damn good too

Do you guys that have Fuzz pedals use them for particular music or are they a general purpose distortion that you like to have? I've got a distortion pedal but it doesn't see that much use with the amp I have now since the amp distortion I like better. But it doesn't sound like the pharaoh

I used my BAT Pharaoh (number 26 I believe) at rehearsal exclusively the other night over my amp gain. Sounded pretty awesome I must say, I was really digging it. These things do take some time to dial in right, I'm still tweaking, but its getting there for sure. I'm using it at the next gig with no amp distortion at all. Mark who owns Black Arts Toneworks and hand builds the LSTR and Pharaoh is a member of HCEG forum - The Riffer is his handle. One of the best people on the planet.
As far as music style, southern fried heavy ass swamp infused stoner rock. lol
