    I know Fuzz boxes are usually more associated with Fender players ! How many people out there are using a Fuzz with thier Gibson ? Love to know what Fuzz your using and :photos: wouldn't suck either !! What Fuzz makes you buzz ??

    You play them with a LP ?? What kind of tones do you get ? I'm thinking of picking up a D*A*M* mkII to get that old Jimmy Page Fuzz sound !

    I have the D*A*M MKII and I use various Les Paul clones, a couple of SG clones and a Tele clone. Guess I like clones.:eek2: Guess I like clones.:eek2:The D*A*M is spot on for early Page fuzz tones. Especially his Yardbirds era stuff. Check out "Think About It" by The Yardbirds for what I believe is a Les Paul into a MKII. :naughty:I also have a '69 Marshall Supa Fuzz modified/restored by Proanalog and a Analogman Arbiter Fuzz Face RI.

    I had a small flat lime green Fuzzy fuzz back in the '70's. I know not its name, but I carry the scars of its sound with me still:rofl: It was covered with fuzzy cloth.
    No pictures of it, sorry:(

    Does an early Pro Co RAT count as a fuzz? I still have one.

    Got a zoom 5000 distortion unit too, lots of sound with it.

    Fulltone Overdrive II. Nice boost thingy.

    Went through the Big Muff stage a couple of decades back too.


    Nowadays, its the Guitar, the cord the amp. Pedals sit in a luggage bag, sans batteries.

    I've bought and sold many fuzz pedals over the years but the one I have at the moment is a Huckleberry by Tone Factor. It sounds good with both single coils and humbuckers..

    I have a free custom one made by Ian League for me.
    "based on an electro harmonix linear power booster from the 70's. i tweaked on the circuit a bit to make it more of a full range boost and put it in an old eh enclosure with a true bypass switch and an led. i tuned it with a les paul and the redbear and it kicks ass "

    Its more of a boost, but it can get fuzzy up top.

    You should really check out Analogman, and make the plunge on a Sunlion. It has the Beano boost ala Eric Clapton, and his Kick ass fuzz on the other side. Very useful pedal, and you will use the beano allot more than you think.

    His fuzzes are the best as well, in another stratosphere compared to Dunlop stuff

    I have a newer Electro Harmonix Hot Tubes. Not quite a muff but definitely in the family. Great sound. Tweakable and very cool.

    I have a late '60's EH Muff Fuzz...hadn't used it in years. I just tried it , and it works. It's was pretty good in it's day (didn't really have too many choices back then). If you listen to the Guess Who's "American Woman" that's how it sounds maxed out. Guess I should ebay it.

    Yeah dwagar, Maestro was a Gibson brand. My first wah pedal was a Maestro, it felt very "loose" but sounded pretty cool. After it was stolen i got a Morley...aaargh a real POS. Died after a few months.
