You know what I'd want in a TAFM? A gate that's adjustable with a knob. The Second Voice Deluxe had this (probably other pedals too) and it was really cool. Is that possible Brian?

not really possible in the current configuration without it affecting the overall tone of the pedal... i would have to rework things quite a bit. :idk:

I got to A/B an oldie with a noon last night and it was fun. Not different enough to say it's like two distinct pedals but I did favor the new guy more for what I'm playing. The fuzz on it was almost.....more refined but beefier. I could totally see myself favoring the oldie in different settings, though. Can't wait to try out the TAFMini and A/B/C these bitches.

I'll try to do a clip, soon.

What are the different controls/knobs of the most current version of the TAFM? I've never tried one, but I'm wondering if it has the options I usually like in a pedal. Didn't realize there were so many different versions!

Thanks!

Input gain (makes the fuzz more intense), fuzz gain, fuzz volume, clean volume, shape (tone), mids switch, switch that makes the input gain boost the clean blend into OD (and the fuzz super nasty), and the gate switch.
Good deals with: AngryGoldfish, Officer Bukowski, casterbro, amnesiac305, Achtane, Snufkino, Tom Dalton, DarkAxel, JamesSGBrown, casperh7, Tristan, intothegroove, Gigahearts_FX, alalalkasar, nightterrors, Schlatte, Dandolin, jskadiang

So the fuzz volume and clean volume operate separately like the Fuzzhugger Bass Bloom? Two separate volumes instead of a clean "blend"?

Seems like this sucker has a looooooot of possibilities but I don't know if I have room for it!

Well, as you may know, I'm coooonstantly searching for a germ fuzz that does what I need it to do. I've got op-amps, jfets, silicons, etc., but no go germ fuzz.

Is the damn thing a purely germ fuzz? I love germ Fuzz Faces but can never get enough volume out of them... rarely do they surpass even unity gain.

So if you turn on the switch that makes the clean blend go OD, does the regular gain knob control the gain of that, or is the OD gain fixed in the clean option?

Can it do fuzzy overdrive tones, or is it pretty way too high gain to do that?

I know I can watch some vids... I just never get the settings I need out of them!

it's not purely germ - hybrid si/ge but the main fuzz section is germanium-based. it gets plenty loud, so don't worry about that.
if you switch clean to OD, the input gain controls the gain of both fuzz and clean channels at once.
hmmm i would say that the lowest setting is a low gain fuzz, rather than a fuzzy overdrive but these are just semantics so someone else may disagree.

Seriously, praise you Brian for the two separate volume knobs.
Infinitely better than a mix / blend knob.
More pedals need this.
