I’ve done pretty well this year given we’ve got until nearly the end of April without any major guitar related purchases but that couldn’t last and I’ve bought myself a fuzz pedal.
There’s an Andertons demo of it which sold me on it (pedal demo starts at about 8 minutes in) A Pedal With a Joystick?! | Tales From the Andertons Pedal Cabinet! - Episode 20 - YouTube
When I play electric guitar, I mostly get my effects from a multi fx unit but had 2 issues that lead me to this pedal. Firstly I couldn’t get the fuzz sound I wanted through it’s in built effects and secondly (I think) you can only have 1 distortion pedal in your chain with the unit so if you want fuzz and an overdrive you’re out of luck. It does however have an effects loop so I put this pedal in the loop and then use an overdrive from the FX unit after it.
If you’d have asked me not long ago, I’d have said I had no interest in fuzz pedals, but I’ve seen several demos lately that have shown me that I was wrong! I will be watching for my neighbours going out this week because I want to try this pedal with my amp in it’s full power mode
