Tone Call Dream Bucket

Postby lobster_aids » Mon Sep 14, 2020 9:32 pm

Howdy Ya'll :joy:

What fuzz sounds have you guyz and galz been yearning for in your hearts of hearts and loin of loins?


Long story short I'm rearing up to building something from scratchy scratch; no tweaks, mods, or homages. Only ohmages
Image Image

Oh mages I beseech ye, beseech ye as to what itches I could ever help scratch.

There won't be any reinventing the wheel here unless there is, but noodling with the flippy-clippies and temporal sqweech tunnels there is hope.

What sounds are you for?


Also, If your fuzz has more than two knobs you are one.

Kind of a deafening silence in here, possibly because people here are too modest to call themselves mages. I'll be the first on the dancefloor, doing embarrassing dad dancing.

My fuzz tastes are pretty retro but I've always been surprised that so few few makers have gone after what I call the English Pastoral Fuzztone, the smooth, bassoon-like long-sustain fuzz of the early 70s. The absolute paradigmatic instance is Fripp's solo on 'Exiles' but the sound turns up on loads of records of the time. Much less common since. I suspect it's to do with amps as much as pedals and I'm not convinced it's achievable at less than 50w.

However the excellent Shoe Pedals made the 'Robert' fuzz for a while which got very close.

I’ve always wanted fuzzes to be chunkier than they are. Like, if a chainsaw wasn’t so smoooth. Maybe a chainsaw with randomly shaped teeth. Maybe a mechanized boulder of a fuzz, rolling up a mountain covered in glass and tinfoil.

I want a fuzz like that.

Lori S gets close to the same kind of tone on lots of Acid King stuff with her Little Big Muff, but it doesn't sound the same since they're tuned to C and not really operating in the same register. TBH lots of stoner rock stuff would fall into this zone, and the various Big Muffs can get there because Big Muffs are the best fuzz circuits ever for precisely this reason :lol:

Check 4:35




Personally, I would really love it if I could find a One Knob Fuzz that played nicely with high impedance pickups. The Ritual sounds fucking perfect on everything except my main bass.
good deals are here.

Can confirm it sounds killer on good instruments. ;)


The next great one knob fuzz is a noble quest.

I guess I'm more of a knob than a mage and I'm okay with that.

I would like a Fuzz Face with a mids control and maybe a bias knob, and a meatball sub.

I also wish there were more fuzzes like the yr2525 and yr4545. Those got up into supersonic audio territory. My hearing’s weird and I hear dog whistles. More fuzzes and audio equipment should play in those ranges.

I would like a one knob fuzz that opens a rent in the space time continuum allowing extraplanar melodies to integrate within my mind field.

What part of Oregon are you in? Hopefully you're well removed from our rambunctious wildfire situation.

Maybe add one more knob to the above that can kill fire - sort of an ice blade one can ease into things. Icy hot and fluffy warm.

I want more parallel fuzz.
Like rudimentary suboctave + octave fuzzes tweaked to sound good in parallel.
No independent switching, just fuzzes made out of multiple fuzzes, y'know.

Oscillating fuzz with pitch control using an exp-in, a lá LAL 88 with the ¿middle? switches would be coolio poolio. With just that mode it would be 2 knobs :)

Parallel fuzz is fun! I've had one and made my own by blending and there's a lot of veeery cool sounds to be had. So yeah I have to agree

i was thinking about parallel dirt last night after rehearsals. I was thinking how would be cool to have my usual Interstellar Overdriver sound mixed with the huge mid-scooped muff sound, and i don't mean a clean blend, but more like a blend where the low and high freq above/under a certain area are from the Muff, and only the remaining central/ mid-freq part of the signal stays exactly the same as the original overdriven sound. :idk: :facepalm:
