worth the watch
Informative for sure.
I've still never found a fuzz I can get along with.
Been using the same amp for a very long time. A Rivera Jake Studio combo. I sold my Boogie Fillmore50 rather than get rid of the Jake.its all about the amp its paired with. there is no good fuzz w/o talking about
what amp its being paired with. might sound good with a 2203 but sound like crap
with the next 50 amps you try it with. its all about the amp.

But I digress - I personally can't get along with any fuzz in any amp. It always ends up sounding like a giant fart to my ears. I like the way other people use them though...
NEVER trust a fart.oh i agree 100%. that out of control bass flub get on my nerves fast.
sounds like crap doesnt it? took me for EVER to find one i liked.

best i could do. i like it. that fart is a good bit controlable. fuzz pedals

and the "silent but deadly" switch. roflmao
I've only owned one Fuzz, which was a Wampler. I tried it through a Super Lead, a C5, and a Blues Junior ... didn't sound the way I had hoped through any of the amps. I did some research at the time, and found that it's likely that there's another one that would have suited me better, but I can't even remember which one it is at this point. Whichever one it is, it's one more akin to what Hendrix would have used to roll off his volume, and still get an incredible clean tone. As I had learned, it turns out that a lot of his clean tone was derived through his fuzz, but w/the guitar volume rolled off (always wondered why I couldn't manage to capture his clean tone ... now I know why!) I love that sound. I think it was one of the Fuzz Face models, but I really can't remember.
watch the video above and it might answer your queston cross.
first 5 minutes i bet.
Good stuff, dude. I signed up for 5 minutes, and wound up watching the whole show. He pretty much answered any question I could have possibly had from a basic understanding pov. I loved hearing the differences along with the descriptions. I definitely preferred his version of the FF in the beginning. Sounded the most musical with full fuzz, and I like how it cleans up. The others were cool, but not my thing.
