    If you're interested in a new Fuzz I've got a Civil War muff that BuGG built me. It's awesome but I'm gonna have him build me something special I can have him put that circuit in there. It sounds just as good as my wren & cuff box of war did. Let me know.

    I gotta stop asking you guys for advice on anything GAS related :fingersx: Or, I need to stay away from Long & McQuade. On the other hand, I like to see what's in the used bin, and I got two more weird Mooer pedals. While I was there, I recalled someone mentioning to me that I needed a fuzz, so I figured what the hell, and bought a shiny, new one. Coulda had the original, but I went with the smaller version.

    I believe that my new Greer Lightspeed cured my PAS.

    At least for a transparent, low to medium overdrive pedal. This one is that good.

    Just got a DOD Boneshaker. The EQ is cool, kinda more gain than I need but I was able to get a few cool tones out of it. I figured for $35 it was worth a shot.

    I'm on a major octave kick and I need to expand on the theme. A harmonizer is the next step, so I just placed an order for one of these:

    If you ever listened to Queen, Brian May used to harmonise his solos A LOT. Also, Iron Maiden did that a lot in Powerslave, Seventh Son and Somewhere in Time. Harmonising was used a lot in '80s hard rock and metal music.

    Is that a harmonizer or a dual lead?

    Mid 1990s to early 2000s Robert Fripp has lots of Harmonizer too.

    Looking forward to your review, P!

    Harmonising dual lead! They don't play the same notes,one is playing at a different interval (third...?).

    Cool. I thought you were saying it was done with a harmonizer pedal.

    Yeah, misunderstanding. I call "harmonising" the end result. In a band with 2 guitarists, they most often do it the old-fashioned way: each one plays his part (Def Leppard, Maiden, Judas Priest, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Thin Lizzy etc.). Brian May most probably did in in the studio only, by overdubbing his own guitar takes at different intervals.George Lynch also comes to mind, sporadically.


    I certainly need a "magic pedal" to do this for me. Why not...?


    Since we are still disgussing this, here is another prime example of another iconic guitar-duo, again in the intro of the song (listen to the 0:38 mark):
