Greasebox GB-83

Fuzz tones for the musically outrageous and mentally overdriven.

Hey guys !

To those who've had the opportunity to own both the GB-80 and the GB-83, which one would you advise me to get on the waitlist for, knowing that I already have a Meathead and a Fuzzrong FR-70 and that I play with a Telecaster on a Fender Twin Reverb Reissue.

I'm not really looking for something very high-gain, a pedal that goes from overdrive to distortion and to fuzzy overdrive for rythm for example would be really great. I've read somewhere on this forum that someone thought the GB-80 had more gain and someone else thought the contrary...

Thank you so much in advance !

Thank you guys for your answers :oldsmile: !

Unfortunately, I can't afford both of these pedals.... So I'll have to choose only one !

I'd go for the GB-80. I like it better than the GB-83, and should really suit your needs !

The aesthetics on the new black/purple GB-83 are off the hook. Definitely cooler in person than in photos. I should try to take a few pictures of mine, but I'm not sure I can do any better than David.

Unfortunatly I had to pass on the GB-80 and the -83 this time around because of the uni-lust. Never turned down a D*A*M pedal before and it was strange. Hopefully my number will come around sometime in the not so distant future.
