Telecaster + (insert Fuzz here) + Super Reverb = Pyschobilly

Postby imsilly » Wed Aug 25, 2010 8:35 pm

I was wondering which would be the most appropriate D*A*M fuzz for getting a decent vintage Psychobilly/Surf/Garage tone?

I'm a bit of a fuzz virgin, so something that is pretty intuitive, isn't too difficult to dial in a useable tone with and won't bite my head off if I play if I hit more then 3 strings at once. Though still gets that 60s and 70s grinding tone. Think the Cramps, Stooges, Ventures and Arrows.

Thanks

Fuzzrong. Or you could get there with a 66'. Either will do the job.

For psychobilly, my recommendation would be a Univox or Shin-ei Super Fuzz. Poison Ivy used one. So do the Cheater Slicks and Gibson Bros. They sound crazy as hell.

Fuzzrong or 1966, but those won't come easy.
Some other dudes on here build quality stuff that would work though.

Why is that?

I live about 30 minutes on the bus from a D*A*M dealer, can't I just put myself on a waiting list for one?

Absolutely, but just keep in mind the wait is pretty long.
Downstroke Music has had them for immediate sale in the past but you have to grab one within 2 minutes or they're gone.

Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong, Fuzzrong!

Although I think the Cramps [EDIT: Virgin Prunes] is more FZ-1 (in fact I think the Cramps is the FZ-1, the one Keith played on Satisfaction), The venture and the Arrows are both Fuzzrites, and although Ron Asheton's pictured with a Vox 2-trannie TB (so, a 1966), there's a lot of Fuzzrite-sounding stuff on the early Stooges.

Get on the list for a Fuzzrong.

Scott posted soem killed demos not long ago.
There's also this dyslexic German Dude ...
