    Oh this GAS ...

    Well, Hedrix used the Fuzz Face and the Octavio. And Gilmour has used several Big Muff Pi versions. They have worked very well for both.

    They also have the BC '70, which has more gain and sounds great too. It has Silicon transistors so it's a different beast.

    They were good enough for Hendrix. Enough said. Mine is a hybrid with a Germanium transistor and a Silicon transistor. Sounds good to me.

    Oh this GAS ...

    I think is on my future GAS list.

    Oh this GAS ...

    They sound killer in video demos. All the Mk's (although I'm partial to the Mk1, just as I'm partial to the BMP, V1. The other pedal shown in the photo is inspired by that version, rebranded as the Guild Foxey Lady).

    Hybrid Germanium/Silicon. The '69 is very tempting indeed.

    Oh this GAS ...

    Diffucult for me to decide which one should I get. This one has a tone knob, but the mk1 sounds terrific too.

    It may apply to beans too :p. Seriuosly, something tells me this may not be my last Fuzz Face style pedal.

    8 Fuzz Faces!:eek: I get it. Lovely pedal.

    Oh this GAS ...

    Well, thanks to GAS I discovered the Fuzz Face, a set it and forget it pedal that will "teach" me how to use the volume knob.

    Too late, I'm afraid :p

    Oh this GAS ...

    No. Not at all. And the Fuzz Face is a very, very interesting pedal. Never had any experiece with it. You can get so many different tones from it by just dialing the volume knob (even with humbuckers). Truly an "always on" pedal.

    Oh this GAS ...

    They arrived today: a Foxey Lady style Muff and a Fuzz Face style pedal. Now I think I need a Tone Bender (not really but:D)

    Tips for using fuzz face style pedals

    It's a brand called JRR Pedals, from a seller in Reverb called JRR Shop. The pedal sounds very nice in the demo videos, and it's reasonably priced.

    Tips for using fuzz face style pedals

    I've also read it's good to experiment with the gain knob, sicnce the pedal's tone also changes at different gain levels.

    Tips for using fuzz face style pedals

    I recently ordered a hybrid Silicon/Germanium Fuzz Face style pedal, and it should arrive soon. According to the builder, it can be pushed with a tube screamer, so I assume it doesn't have the typical FF problems with buffered pedals. I would like to know what tips do you have for this style of...

    Arguably the best jazz quintet ever ...

    Yes. This track is not very Hendrixian, but it features Cosey and it has a monster groove.

    Arguably the best jazz quintet ever ...

    Hendrix was kind of present in Filles de Kilimanjaro. Listen to "Tout de Suite" and to "Mademoiselle Mabry", and notice the clear nods to Hendrix. Since almost no one was listening to this kind of music in '67, drummer Tony Williams (21 at that time), persuaded Davis to listen to the stuff the...

    Arguably the best jazz quintet ever ...

    The same quintet, four years later, moving closer to fusion. The funny thing is that I keep paying attention to Ron Carter's bass lines on this track. Simple yet tremendously efective. He laid down the groove on which everyone else flew.

    Arguably the best jazz quintet ever ...

    When I'm not listening to hard rock and metal, I keep going back to the albums Miles Davis, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams recorded in the 1960s ... and to their post quintet jazz-fusion works too.
