Everyone needs a fuzz, it's basically law at this point
It's not just the $100 for the looper. It's the another $300 for a bigger board and new wiring that scares me... Not to mention that if I ever took that step, I would go for a programmable one, which is... mucho dinero.$100 will change your life.
Hector, a TS pedals with the right guitar and amp cam be a wonderful thing. The mini TS is a fine pedal, however; you do have plenty of dirt. Get a pedal that will inspire you to play. Something that connects to you in a personal way. I just do not think you need to be practical given your setup.
Aight guys, lets give this Fuzz thing another try. Picked up a Mad Professor Fire Red Fuzz today
Yeah, Ive tried Fuzzfaces Muffs and Tonebenders, but this seems like a more modern fuzz. The tone knob seems highly praisedCongrats! Keep giving this fuzz thing a try (or more). You have to find the right family (or... families) of fuzzes that works well for you and then you can narrow it down to certain pedals.
You also sometimes need to 'sell' your FUZZ-tone to your bandmates. I thought my Fuzzrite clone had a great unique effect, but the SweatHogs did not dig. However, with my Cornish G2 clone, they love the sound! I was trying to refresh the memory of our lead player by reteaching him the riff for Seven Nation Army using the G2 and my VOX. It sounded glorious and the dudes all commented. Gotta love the pedal that makes your simple chording sound like you're a pro.Fuzz is tricky. I wrote off Big Muffs after trying the current versions and used Tonebender variants for awhile. (Scarab Deluxe being my favourite)
It wasn't until I started exploring vintage voiced Big Muffs that I found my sound; the circuit right around 1976 (Violet Rams Head) is it for me.
Fuzz seems to be intensely personal so don't give up when a variant doesn't work for you; you just haven't found the right one YET.
