The new ones sound great.

Mary's like a red rooster but with a tighter bass response, more edgy top end and a nice gritty crunch when played hard.

Harry's a really well balanced fuzz with lots of everything - massive low end, biting treble and a huge output.

The Harry is different. It has characteristics of those newer "velcro", gated fuzzes that have been popular for the past couple years but it is still natural and organic sounding at the same time.[*edit: I just played it some more and with my tele it can cop some really great, raunchy 60s tones. There almost has to be some clean signal mixed into the fuzz, but that doesn't stop it from getting nice and ripping] It also retains a nice warmth (sounds like the clean bottom end is able to bleed through a bit?) even at the highest "attack" setting. It sounds really great on bass and so far I prefer it to guitar.
But...
when you throw the Mary in front it rips the Harry open and changes it up a bit. Some of the low end warmth disappears but that is ok because it still sounds awesome. What is cool, is that even though the Harry is super gated/squarewavey with the Mary in front, you can still pull some nice sustaining feedback out of it! It's like the threshold of the gate is set really low so you can wail like a freak for days. It is sort of a dryer, hard clipping fuzz and best through some tubes to get those harmonics we all love. The FZ-1-ish tones are here too at lower gain settings.

The Mary sounds fantastic into a tube amp and I even tried it before my Valve Klipper, sending it into fuzzier territory. it's a real nice, real loud booster and gives you a lot of picking volume.
This will probably be the more often used and "all around" pedal out of the two.

so good times.
thanks!

here's the artsy pic for the summer time:

It sounds just like something I'm looking for :headbanger:

I hope my Harry will arrive soon.
