Ab-Synth Fuzz Pedal by FuzzHugger(fx)

Recommended Posts

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.

You musicians are weird.

Now, you're going to take delight in stepping on that cute girl holding your glass of absinthe for you. ;)

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.

 

True, ain't nothin' like the sound out of an old original Univibe.. 'specially with a little help...

Y'all make me want to dig up my old guitar, restring it, and play regardless of how much my hand hurts, damn surgery. Screw it, I am, even if it's only punk that im playing. Music is music

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.

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...
