I don't how many musicians there are around here, but I figure at least Peridot might feel me on this one. It's a pretty nifty high gain fuzz pedal with footswitchable on/off oscillation mode built by boutique effects brand FuzzHugger(fx). The sound's alright, but the graphic makes me wanna drop $$$ on it.

They may go nuts over her.

Some musicians are fairly animated. ;)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Please don't tell me FS you're going to turn Trip all the way up.

Oh, I see in full oscillation mode it's your main control. :devil:

It's pedals like this that make me curse the fools that put effects into the heads defeating the need for pedals!

Cool graphic.

Don't have much use for fuzz pedals, though. I hate having an array of pedals and much prefer using a solid state amp with all onboard effects and an easy foot controller (for the very few effects I ever use).

But I have to say those Uni-Vibe contraptions are pretty sweet. They actually remind me, in appearance, of late 70s video game consoles.

The originals still have a unique sound that a lot of the "boutique vibes" don't quite capture.

I guess I should drag out the all the ancient pedals, I think the newest pedals I own, are an old Roger Mayer Octavia, and a first run TS-808 still in the box, that I bought back when they first came out.

Those are excellent and also valuable, if its a mint first run...the newer reverse engineered Hendrix Octavio is a superb Octavia sound nowadays ,and the TS-808 kit mods are fun to build from GGG...

Eh, I'm a DOD junky (even had a website dedicated to archiving them for a short while). Astoundingly unfashionable I know. But over the last 20+ years, I just kept coming back to 'em. Sound:Price ratio fits me well. Right now my pedal board has five DOD's, one vintage Digitech, and two newer Digitechs.

I kept trying boutique stuff, but that FX50b Overdrive Plus I bought 22 years ago is still my favorite dirt pedal.

ACHHK!!!
The vintage pedals I have traded off makes me sick to think about.
I still wonder where my Morley Pro Flanger that was old when I got it in the 80s' wound up.

Kudos to the technical skills she obviously has. But that would be pretty much exactly what I don't want to hear on guitar.

Back on the original topic, on the "Trip" knob, how about adding "Balls" on the max end of the scale :rolleyes:
With regards to gain, I really like my Marshall JCM900, it goes up to 20 with ear-bleeding, face-melting sound :blowup: . As for effects, I have a Rockman XP100 that I still haven't fully explored. It's got compression, pre-eq, chorus, reverb, echo, distortion, effects loop (as if I need more), post eq... well, too much to list but totally cool. :devil: :headbang: Playing my Washburn EC-36 through either of them is a delight.

Just sent payment for one - been looking for it since I saw it here. :bguitar:

And no, Joe - I won't be stepping on her, per se.

Baubel's right - a green muse at my feet! :wub:


Just noticed the OP attached the image for the older 4-knob version - I got the 5-knob - adds a "GAIN" control.

Gorgeous piece, but these days, I just can't seem not to destroy anything I stomp on within a year. Guess it's time to downgrade to lighter boots...
