    Never heard that band before, but I really like it. Gonna check out more of their stuff on youtube.

    Just read a little about them... they seem to have a connection with the band Love and Arthur Lee... maybe that's why I like their sound (I'm an Arthur Lee/Love fan).

      Thanks guys (I love that Black Keys song Bling...good choice for the demo of fuzz.

      I'm getting to see the difference between distortion and fuzz and now I have fuzz gas...

      But I just joined the evil empire (bought an Ipad) so it might be a while before I spring for a fuzz so I'll keep listening/learning

        Hey Nuke!

        I use a little from time to time, we do a couple of Hendrix songs and it's awesome for that (I do have to use a booster in the band, fuzz can get lost), just have a Dunlop Hendrix JH-2 and a Dano Cool Cat right now. I really want a Pharoah, love all the clips I've seen of that. I like a single -coil with the volume backed off for chords.....

          Yeah they were like the American Yardbirds...Get Randy Holden Early Works 64-67 if you can find it. His other group The Fender IV were pioneers of early surf.

            Cool, thanks for the suggestions. Yeah I'm going to check that out for sure. Sounds like I'll like it.

                Welcome to the dark side.

                I just got a boss FZ-2 to join the fuzz family, which now consists of a Swollen Pickle MKII, Vexter Fuzz Factory, and a Lovetone Big Cheese Clone. All that covers a lot of ground, but one can never have too many fuzz pedals

                  Hope you can get your hands on a fuzz pedal one day. There's so many to choose from... I learned a bit about fuzz in the Effects forum a while back.


                  Yeah I found that demo on the Effects forum. I think there will be a fuzz pedal in my future. That often is the result of me listening to something and going "wow that sounds amazing"

                  I have both the Transatlantic 15 and the Flashback delay because of that ...and this is the same level of infatuation

                    I usually use Fuzz for all kinds of distortion. Makes me very happy! I have the Russian Big Muff and I love it to death. To me, regular distortion doesn't sound as good! I love fuzz.

                      I wasn't big on fuzz until recently. I found that into a loud tube amp it can really do some magic. Prior to that I was just playing at home levels and was totally underwhelmed. I am now officially a convert.

                        My biggest requirement when it comes to fuzz pedals is that it cuts through in a live mix. If you play with more than one guitar, most of the time a fuzz doesn't have enough midrange to it, and you'll sorta disappear. The fuzz in the vid below has been my main unit for the last two or three years because it DOES cut through.



                        Still, I badly want some sort of Univox Superfuzz-ish thing. Could be quite fun. Pete seemed to dig it.

                          It isn't the pedal... it's Andy. He makes all things sound amazing.

                            Fuzz takes time. But it is time well spent.
