Which one?

Post by Dullboy » Wed May 15, 2019 4:20 pm

Hello!
I'm trying to figure out what to sell to reduce my collection of fuzz pedals.
My goal would be to have just one or two fuzz for kind.
How do you choose usually when you have multiple (like 4) MK1, MK2, Fuzz Face, Big Muff, etc...? :badteeth: :doh: (that's my situation)
Fortunately I only have one MK 1.5 ahaha. (maybe two if I consider the Super Bee a kind of MK1.5).
I'm serious about this, please suggest me or tell me your experience.
Thanks!!
Daniele

I usually like the ones that work well with most guitars and amps

Yeah I'd say you just have to play the hell out of all of them and stick with the ones that float your boat. Each iteration has its own characteristics that vary from box to box. Do you like super high gain muffs or ones that are a little more transparent and raspy? Do you like your mkI to gate at all or are you trying to avoid that? And of course there is the question of your guitars and amps, as was wisely mentioned before. And some fuzzes only really give you the goods at high volume so some are better for gigging and some are better for studio/home use.

It's a good question and it's really tough to get any opinions that will be useful for you. It's so subjective and there are so many parameters to consider. My experience has been that, with few exceptions, getting rid of a fuzz box is never done without regret...either now or later.

Good luck.

that's not too difficult for me, I'm a Tone Bender kinda guy and the MKII is the best all rounder imo, so that would be my choice, like Doc says works well with most guitars/amps :tu:


sooooo what you selling? :marx: :popcorn:

I feel that having a bunch of variations of a circuit that you love is a great thing and far more useful than having 2 of lots of different fuzzers, some that you don't really or rarely gel with anyway?

Is that any help? That's a realisation I came to when considering same a few years ago...

I find that there are enough flavors and purposes to justify keeping multiple fuzzes.

At the moment I have four mk1's and am only selling one because it's reasonably covered by the other three.
