    Re: EHX Satsifaction Fuzz

    Another tune... Again I am playing the slide while my buddy is playing with his strat (and Fulltone octafuzz)...



    - 2007 Gibson Melody Maker open E tuning neck position (Duncan Lil59N)
    - RMC Wheels of Fire Wah
    - EHX Satisfaction
    - Mesa Boogie V-Twin clean channel - poweramp out
    - Soundcard: EMU 1616m
    - Ignite Amps TPA-1 Power Amp VST
    - RedWirez Marshall 1960 Greenback cabsim
    - Antress'in Modern & Classic VST's - compressor & reverb & delay.

    And here are some gut pics of this pedal:

    If you are not happy with it, You could sell it and get a build your own fuzz-tone for about the same price. I liked the satisfaction tone in the demos, but everything else sounded too harsh.

    I think I am getting there you know... Still, I have to try it in a band setting. When it comes to FuzzFaces and HB's (I am using a LP), I have this problem of being lost in the mix. Sorta too dark. Well this sucker is not like that at all... It does not clean up that well but when I play it, I know that I am gonna be heard...



    Here is the original:

    This pedal sounds sorta similar... Not that far off.

    Maybe I should think about replacing them silicon trannies with GE's...

    You'll need to rejigger the circuit a bit and probably change some capacitor values if you want to do that. Typically when changed from germanium to silicone you alter some of the tone shaping of the circuit to avoid the pedal sounding super bright and terrible.

    Nice clip BTW, sounds like you've found a setting that works for you!
    Thanks! BTW I have to confess that's sorta what I am doing. That is my clean tone is very bassy and muffled. And, the clean channel on the Mesa V-Twin does not provide the most jangly guitar tone... which helps in this case.

    Yes, the Maestro has three RCA 2N2614 trannies.

    The original has GE trannies, no? This one I think has silicon transistors and that may be the reason. Then again I do not have an extensive experience with the original, so you tell me.

    Best,
