RE: OT: Fuzz
I used to use quite regularly (and still do occasionally) an MXR
Distortion + that yields some nice thick distortion tones. Currently, I
rely on the natural tube tones from my Mesa Rectifier Recording Preamp.
I also have an old EH Wah Muff Fuzz pedal that produces more of a fuzz
sound than the MXR, more like Hendrix, though not nearly as thick, in
fact, it is rather thin.
My favorite OD/Sustain pedal is the aNaLoGmAn BiCompROSSor, which is a
boutique combination of the Ross Compressor and the Orange Juicer. True
bypass and very clean. Mike Piera of aNaLoGmAn.com also builds and mods
Tube Screamers that rock.
