That could be rad.
Let us know if you do :snax:

There are definitely fuzzes that prefer slightly overdriven amps and those that prefer clean amps. I think Muffs sound best with a clean solid state amp. Tone Benders can go either way. Fuzz Face-based circuits need at least a touch of amp OD (and I try to keep it down to just a touch because I want to hear fuzz, not OD). Most of my fuzzes sound more generic with the high-output pickups on my Baritone, but the Meatbox clone loves them.

I kind of perplexed about the choices of one-knob fuzzes, because I have an ILF-er offering to make me a clone, and I've always wanted a pedal with a one-knobber on one side, and a stompable volume control on the other. Colorsound? Meathead? Ritual? I know htat they're not that different from each other. My favorite sound-wise in demos is the Alien Hate Fuzz, but I'm not sure anyone knows the exact components. what's the one-knobber to go for?

Finaly, I'll get another Penny Padals Fingerprint Noir.
I should never have sold this awesome fuzz.
