Kind of like Lastgasp, in that regard, who are also offbeat and should be mentioned here.


I've only ever played through one DBA pedal, the Octave Clang, and it was the most horrible sounding fuzz pedal I've ever heard (and I don't mean 'horrible' in a good way). It may in fact be the only fuzz pedal I've ever actively disliked. Then again, Ty Segall apparently uses a Fuzz War for all his fuzz sounds, and he always sounds great…


Safe to assume that the Octave Clang is a ring mod as well?

It's kind of an octave-up-plus-a-bit-of-ring-mod thing...

The Interstellar OD and Fuzz War sound great together, kinda wish I still had that pairing...

I kinda want the Apocalypse, though, since it is basically the Fuzz War circuit, plus the Robot, plus a couple other fuzz circuits, all stuffed in one box...

I've been interested in the fuzz gun for a hot minute.

Ibanez smash box is great for doom, sucks as a high gain metal pedal though lol

D-Day built me a Cream Puff clone and it's awesome. Lovely low end. I've been playing it a lot lately.

DBA is awesome. I love the Fuzz War I have but I really like my Kill Kill Filter. It's discontinued and doesn't pop up much, but it's a switchable EQ filter that just sounds rad, especially when paired with dirt.

Just came to the conclusion that it's not just "a fuzz pedal". It's a fucking fire breeding monster. HM-2/MUFF on steroids, definately not for the faint of heart. Bass players looking for a subtle mild overdrive might want to steer clear :)

I noticed no one had mentioned his Ape Blaster Fuzz in this thread, so I'm going to. Awesome one knob fuzz with a very nice flavour and gets some nice self oscillations with the guitar volume rolled back. I haven't tried it on bass yet, but D-Day being a bass player I'm guessing it's awesome on bass too. :idk:

Need to spread some love for the original metal pedal, the Ibanez SM9 Super Metal. Its the precursor to both the Boss HM2 and DOD FX56. After checking out the schematic its pretty clear Boss used this as the basis for their "metal pedal".

The SM9 won't yield those perfect swedish chainsaw tonez, as the HM2 has more gain on tap, but it has a voice of its own. I'd like to think of it as an HM2 being raped by a Rat.

Actually didn't get along with the SM9 originally because I bought it 20 years ago, when my guitars were tuned to standard and I was ripping off slayer riffs. Just wasn't tight enough and wished it had a little more gain. Tastes have changed some and my guitars are all now in B or C tunings played through old Ampegs and Traynors and this pedal has finally found its place with me and works great for sludge, doom, noise,etc.

Highly recommended, but not many to be had it seems nowadays. The only knock I see are certain reviews state that the pedal lacks volume. I don't have this problem, and seems the people that report the problem are idiots trying to use their Super Metal as a tubescreamer just because it houses a few JRC4558'S and is made by Ibanez/Maxon.

Industrial Electronic RM-1N if no one's said it already, the pre/post gain interaction gets really heavy and the reverb is incredible.

Yeah, sometimes I turn the mix and depth all the way down and use it as a pure fuzz. And the way the drone knob interacts with the circuit can get some really awesome textures. Awesome crackly crumbly broken sounds.

It's also fun to crank the depth and put the feedback right at the edge of oscillation, and keep the mix just above zero. When you hit a note, it turns into a crazy oscillating scream that fades out into crackles.

It's just an all around awesome pedal. And yes, the reverb is the best. I rarely turn it off.
