I have my TAFM (mid-older version) after my Rat Tail set at low gain.
Playing a Model P loaded Precision into a Sunn Sorado through a 2x15:

FV - noon
CV - 10pm
SH- between 11pm and 1pm depending on how I feel
FZ - All the way up
IN - 3pm (CCW for more)
SW1 - Right
SW2 - Right

FV- 11ish
CV- 9ish
FZ - 1
IN - 11
Mids - up
Boost - down

Current version with the gate. Running it like this gives me a "fuzzstortion" kinda sound, hitting the input with the mini makes it fuller n saturated, hitting the gate (with or without the mini) = death boost :evil:

I fucking love the TAFM so hard Brian
When I am rich and famous I am going to need to buy 5 or so to cop all the tones I want at any time
At the moment really liking some of the lower gain sounds on guitar and then hitting the gate to max out the fuzz :omg:
I love the first setting, for heavy keyboards on bass as well, so thick and full of low end
Rad pedal

I never knew how awesome the TAFM does low-mid gain fuzz! I usually have the fuzz full blast and set as a huge wall sound but recently I have it set as more of a dirty, low gain fuzz and it sounds SO good! In line before my ABY then into each amp with a Sparkle Motion to one and a Fuck to the other. Re-assured me it's still my favorite fucking fuzz.

Volume switch: dirty
Mids switch: boosted
Clean volume: noon
Fuzz volume: 9pm
Shape: 3pm
Fuzz: 10:45
Input: 11:45 (CCW. Are they all CCW?)

:love:

This is VERY close to what I had my TAFM set to and used for the same purpose, a low gain OD more so than a fuzz.

Anyway, I just got a Mini yesterday and was tweaking away at it until I got a sound that I liked (which wasn't hard to do), and then I A/B'd between the TAFM with this setting and the Mini...very very VERY close to the point of being tough to tell the difference between the two pedals.

that's pretty interesting considering how different they are, circuit-wise. i guess there's always more than one way to arrive at the same sound...

Yeah, I thought it was pretty interesting too. Both pedals obviously go places that the other one cannot, but it definitely seems as though they share a range of similarity. The way to tell them apart though (IMO) is that the Mini always seems to sound bassier, and the TAFM always seems to have more note definition.

I have the newest TAFM and I probably use it more than any other pedal.

My settings are:
Fuzz - max
Shape - 10 o-clock
Pregain - zero
Fuzz volume - 10-11 o clock
Clean volume - Noon-ish. Unity.
Mids up
Boost down

I pretty much leave the gate on all the time. Alone, this gives me a very bass-heavy but still defined synthy fuzz. Especially with the tone rolled back on the bass. I also use it to Awesome-ize everything else. I run it last before my delays and everything that runs into it turns...awesome.

Just sold my Buzzz to buy a TAFM. This thread will prove to be a valuable resource I have no doubt.

^^ Just snagged a TAFM just like that one.

This is my...third one?

I think I've learned my lesson. I can't quit you, Team Awesome.
