I love tone - I love it all, from a 59 Les Paul through a Super Lead to Hendrix’s strat psychedelia to The White Stripes... tone benders, fuzz face, boutique fuzz - it's wonderful in the right hands and it inspires me. Can I get any fuzz pedal that I buy to sound anywhere near? Not a chance. Theyre all shrill, uncontrollable toneless messy disasters and this whole driving me nuts. I just bought a Fuzz Face Band of Gypsy's version after doing some online research. I put a strat tuned to D like Hendrix into the fuzz face, into my 100w Super PA on the verge of breaking up, click, and it sounds like utter garbage. The strat tone is gone, the depth is gone. Playing with volume and fuzz on the pedal itself helped very little. Varying the strat volume cleaned it up just like all the videos I watched, but I am wincing at the sound with the volume back up. I tried it on my pedal board, in a pedal chain, on its own - press the button and goodbye any resemblance of tonal character, hello shrill face slicing fizz. OK you could say that fuzz is not for me, but it is... I love the sound from Pro Guitar Shop demos etc and many a demonstration online as well as all the greats. This will be my second pedal return... what the hell is going wrong...?
