I just got mine thanks to you and slomatic, and I can tell you this is a wicked little bastard. On extreme settings I get crazy ocillation and assorted wierd noises I can't even explain. I have come to aquire many fuzzes in recent times, but this one is totally unique. I love it. Can you point me to some tracks that make use of the original?

Not Black, more like Matamp Green

Sickle, what the hell have you done to my sig!?!? Looks like Colt McCoy has a Cthulu head. You manage to further out do yourself when I think anything you do can't be any weirder. Sorry to be OT, but Jesus Christ that's weird. Any certain meaning or point to it? I kinda like it in a strange way.

I got a Fuzzrong from an unnamed source. I am quite happy with it. In fact, I have no other fuzz pedal that does quite what it does. It's hard for me to describe the sound (so I won't try right now). Further, and I've tried and tried to change, I am less interested in the Fuzzaround than the Fuzzrong. :shocked2: Anyone else feel that way? Am I insane? I think the Fuzzaround sounds good, but I do not HEAR what is so unique about it. (In the clips, it just sounds like a versatile fuzz to me.) The Fuzzrong in my opinion is sounds very unique.

No this is not a reverse psychology ploy to get you less interested in the Fuzzaround so that I may beat you to the BIN. Honestly, I've been trying everyday to justify going for the Fuzzaround BIN--listening to the clips over and over--but I just am not crazy about it. In fact, I've been reading all the Fuzzaround owners describe how awesome it is to try to MAKE myself want it, since I know Dave will never make it again. Is there something SOUND WISE about the Fuzzaround I'm just missing here? To me the Fuzzrong is incredible.

Remembered Philips clips. Listed to them. Ok, I can better see what this pedal has to offer.

I know what you mean, I'm more of a Tonebender guy. I could have been one of the original 10 but passed due to finances, I had a MKII coming. I also have a 1966. I prefer these tones, but cutting through the mix can be an issue. I may try for one of the BINs, I don't know. My problem is that if I buy it & it doesn't work out I won't sell it. Did I mention that I'm saving for an amp that will cost $2,500. :headpop:

I am love my Fuzzrong for certain things. It has a 3D quality to it that I've never heard on anything else. It would be good for a 60's type solo ala The Stooges or Iron Butterfly. It's kinda like a one trick pony for me, but it's a damn fine pony. The Fuzzaround is versatile yes, but there are about two sounds in it that kill me. The all out, everything dimed, sound is just a monster. It feels possessed by a transcendent spirit to me, ambiguous as to good or evil. It's hard to explain why I like it so, but just think of Neo and all the other fuzzes out there as Agents. Or, think of it as Thor's hammer: Mjolnir. It just decimates you and could care less if you like it or not. I don't play it, it plays me. I really, honestly, get that feeling like it manifests itself in me and posses me to do certain things. I might be crazy, but that's what it does for me. Also, the other sound, everything pretty much turned all the way down, is a trebley sound that is pretty cool. It sounds like if the Fuzzaround is being nicer and actually letting you play it a little.

Back to the fuzzrong. This is what the topic is about right? Oh, ok, good. Well the Fuzzrong is just like a mental torpedo to me. It's something meant to be played and mastered in the background, to be taken matter of factly, and then all of a sudden your head spontaneously combust at the sound it produces and the layered complexity of it all. :headpop:

That's my take on all of it.
