Yeah...i really like doing leads with the fat tone from an octaver and fuzz
together.  Reminds me of early Crimson (although i can't think of a
particular song that has this) or some of the crazy leads from Hatfield &
the North's albums.

I've (also) been using the EBS octabass into a Lovetone meatball (trigger
off, so it is a static filter) with a fuzz (big muff deluxe: fuzz &
compression) on the meatball's fx loop.  this is FAT! and sustains forever.

 I think E-H had a great idea to combine a compressor w/ the fuzz, cause
that fuzz tone sounds sooooo sweet for leads, when it sustains forever...
The filter from the meatball is also nice, for additional tone control.

So how about a pedal with these features:

Compression, Fuzz, Octaver (1/2 octave low), Filter (Lopass/Bandpass/Hipass
-- static or if possible, dynamic)

This would be one funky pedal!!   Perhaps Lovetone would be willing to
adventure in this arena......They already make a GREAT fuzz and filter
pedal...and are a small enough company to actually listen to its
