Making the buzzz cut through better

Postby scienceman » Sun Feb 28, 2016 1:24 am

I was just wondering if there was a way to make the buzzz cut through the mix better. Right now I'm running it with flat eq and low gain and it doesn't seem to cut really well. I love how it sounds I guess I just wish it had more mids or something. Any advice would really be appreciated.

I had the same problem. My solution was to run a lighter OD into it with a little more mids or treble. Seemed to help with me.

Brian mentioned a mid boost mod could be done to it as well. Something to consider...

Oh I'll need to find out about that mod cause that might be perfect.

The buzzz is pretty smooth for a superfuzz. I didn't exactly have problems with cutting but it would be nice to an extended EQ mod or something. I'd definitely suggest pairing with some kind of graphic or parametric EQ pedal for what you're describing. Kinda boring thing to buy but they can usually solve almost any kind of problem like this with your current gear so it's a worthwhile investment IMO.

If brian did a deluxe buzzz with like a 3 band EQ with Hyper Fuzz gain levels that would be totally sick.

yeah so the overall timbre can be a touch smoother than a traditional superfuzz. there are some high frequency oscillations that can occur when things are maxed out so i decided to combat that with a tiny bit of filtering - very little but it is noticeable. if you want more high end, i can explain a quick mod for you if you'd like. more mids are another story unfortunately...

i thought about doing a 3-band EQ but then there would have been even more controls! i tried to reign it in as much as i could. custom build maybe?

I wouldn't call it a waste of time to make my ultimate fuzz. Emailing is about to happen.

This. EQs are boring and get no love but they are the original audio effect for good reason; they work. Wonders.
I would play with cutting somewhere in the 100-250hz for step 1 and then boost somewhere between 500-700hz for step 2, if necessary.
EQ in the chain somewhere after fuzz.

I never really had much of an issue with the Buzzz cutting through
But when I stack it with a Speaker Cranker it certainly adds some meat to it

I run a tubescreamer before it, certainly helps give it that cut, and some clarity without sacrificing the sound.
