        Re: Fuzz

        One quirk of fuzzface circuits is that they work best if they're first in line. They interact directly with the guitar pickups; that's a big part of their beautiful touch sensitivity and cleanup. Putting other pedals between FF and guitar can degrade the feel and the sound quite noticeably.

        If you must run something else in front of a fuzzface, make SURE its a true-bypass design and avoid anything with a buffer.

        I do agree that if you're running a bright sparkly clean tone, an OD pedal will mellow the highs a bit. Pedals with a bit of mid boost tend to work well with Strats. If a TS type is too humped for your taste, the klone types offer a milder-but-still-warming mid character. I like the Mythical OD a lot.

        Personally I love the Kanji overdrive with a Strat; it's rich, liquid and and amplike.

          You also might check out La Super Rica, which seems to fix many problems using a fuzz creates.

            Here's a really good demo of the Duncan fuzz:

Sometimes I stack a Fuzz Face into an overdrive into a clean Fender. The OD rounds off the highs and pushes the midrange a little.
              I have the square box Hendrix Band of Gypsies fuzz, its pretty responsive. I think for this anything in the Tonebender/Fuzz Face family would be good.

                Axis bold as Love and the first Jimi Hendrix Experience album are all germanium FF, Band of Gypsis is all silicon, but in Electric Ladyland ?
                Germanium also ? There was no silicon Arbiter FuzzFace yet ?

                    Sorry I corrected my typo.

                    Hendrix has something like 6 FuzzFaces (They said "halv of dozen") because there could be some inconsistency in the matching of Ge transistors and so he could pick up the best ones.
                    Did he already had a silicon one when he recorded Electric Ladyland and used both type of fuzz box (Ge / Si) ?
                    Maybe at that time all he had had Ge transistors (?)

                      Whatever he's using on the slow "Voodoo Chile" is pretty much it to my ears.

                        I asked my wife for this one for Christmas. It’s made by Cast Engineering, who make high quality stuff. There are some great demo videos out there, but think Jimi tone. It looks pretty cool in the videos.

                          I have been using the Morley Cliff Burton Fuzz for the past year and absolutely love it. Very loose and organic sounding. It has great dynamics and responds to touch and attack very well.
