LOL- this is pretty cool, IMO!!
Can you imagine THIS in today's market?
I had one in 1965 in order to play "Satisfaction" with my band in the Seattle dance halls.
I remember it wouldn't work if it was cold. (like brought in from a cold car)
Didn't that narrator also narrate Reefer Madness? It would explain a great deal...
That was great, “it’s mellow, it’s raucous, it’s tender, it’s raw”...Sold. You had me at mellow and raucous.
I loved the “here’s a surprise, we’re playing guitar, but the sound is trumpet.” Hmmm, trumpet you say? Why yes, that does sound a lot like Miles Davis right there...yeee-ahhh, not really. Hats off to the first ever guitar effects pedal though, we had to start somewhere, that was a fun listen.
Very cool. This literally made my night. I love me some Fuzzy Buzzy.
Hilarious demo, but I didn't have the patience to sit through the whole thing. I had one too. I think they were about $30.00-$40.00 new, which was killer expensive back then. I was 13 or 14ish ('65 or '66) when I got it, and nobody else I knew or was aqauinted with had one. Pretty radical effect, and gained me some more cred. I have no memory whatsoever of what happened to it. I later had a Sunn "Buzz" fuzz tone for awhile. Can't remember what became of it either, or what became of most of my other gear back then. It was a long freakin' time ago!.....
Speaking of fuzz and Satisfaction. I've wondered why Keith Richards hasn't used a fuzz since the early days when they perform Satisfaction. I've seen videos over the years, and to me the song just doesn't pack the power, punch, and sounds weak without that powerful, fuzzed up, buzzed up riff. Can't a guy have the tech insert a fuzz in the chain somehow for just that one song. Keith is switching guitars (and maybe between amps?) all night long. Still, that one minor thing said, I'll always love the Stones. (Keith, if you're reading this, get the EHX "Satisfaction" pedal, and dial 'er into 1965)...
@maqcatt ; @hornpiper
SO cool you both had this!
And @rolandson I believe it WAS the same guy! Went on later to do Popeils "Pocket-Fisherman" and voice-overs for refrigerator / freezer combos LOL
"That's right folks! With THIS little gem, set to Sousaphone, you COULD join the London Philharmonic Orchestra, or even your local 'om-pah' band! THE SKY'S THE LIMIT, folks..."
Crazy- those voice-over guys were ALL cut from the same cloth. Probably went to the Universal Studio Academy of cornball announcers...
I love it...
@Stratonini - quite the nice collection of FUZZIES ya got there! hanks for sharing!
"Ever Wonder What The "Pedal" Predecessors Were"
Volume, massive VOLUME!
There's this too!
Thanks for sharing this!
THATS got "60's" written all over it!
"You've just heard only a FRACTION of what the CryBaby can do! It's a 'happening' thing!"
It's wha's happenin', baby!
I MISS the 60's! (somewhat)
I had both of those. Painful to listen to these videos...
Oh man, that crybaby demo is priceless too. “The crybaby pedal lets you play groovier blues.” That guy’s voice sounds like any second he’s gonna launch into “it slices, it dices, it can even cut this tin can in half!”
Dear God, yakky then in a review as they are now. Some things never change! (Thanks!)
I remember reading something tangential about this and found this article:
Short story: Keith Richards actually wanted it to be a horn part, the Maestro Fuzz pedal was given to them and he used it as advertised to create a horn effect. But he actually hated it and intended for it to be a placeholder for the real horn part. A vote was taken on the final recording where he and Mick lost against everybody else, so it was released as recorded.
All that followed came from this:
