How does /mu/ get their beefy ass tone? General pedal/setup discussion welcomed.
Can go from a fat fuzz to harsh noise wall depending on the setting
My favorite pedal purchase ever was the Russian Big Muff. Slightly less abrasive than the standard, but still a great heavy tone.
This pedal is great too, but it requires a lot of parameter tweaking to get usable sounds (unless you're on that noise tip).
I like the gate control on these.
My current set up is basic: VP Jr. Hall of fame reverb carbon copy delay dd3 digital used mostly for the hold. I want a walrus descent reverb
I split my signal into an AC15 for the highs and mids and a Rumble 25 bass amp for the low end
signal path llooks like this
My Ibanez amp coupled with this bad boy gives me a pretty bitchin sound
from my experience, you get an amp with a solid, boomy clean tone and crank the gain JUST to the point before it starts to shatter.
Then throw a tubescreamer on it and bring the heat.

No questions. Just check it out.
I run my guitar and baritone through a splitter. One line goes unadulterated into an 80s Peavey Super Chorus 2x12 and the other goes through a custom fuzz and verbzilla into a 70s Acoustic bass head and 1x15
This pedal causes some serious devastation.
Has bi-amping power so you can mix your clean bass tone with your dirty bass tone.
aslo, most people agree it's 99.9% exactly like the Russian big muff, making it perfect for guitar as well.
A/B/Y box with clean signal running to the chorus amp and a fuzzed out signal going to a bass head sounds like the best setup imo.
check out the megalith by mountainking pedals. i built one and its probably the heaviest pedal on the planet ;)
pic related.. it needs a paintjob
HM-2 is probably the hardest pedal to get sounding good that I've ever used. Key is to work it around your amp settings and other distortion pedals as a thick boost I've found. Nastiest thickest tone if you dial it in right with a decent EQ going through you pretubes.
I like the darkglass b3k overdrive. There are some effects that have good sort of 'bang for your buck' or 'poor man pedals' for bass but in my opinion there is none for overdrive. The cheap od pedals sound like a bass signal mixed with a bumble bee buzzing.
I have this,
when you crank it up all the way, it's pretty beefy
but I have to make sure the amp has a little bit of gain on it first
I use this, it's way way better than people say. If you don't turn your knobs all the way then you can get a lot of great tones from it. Just fucking learn to use it.
I've found all of Zvex's fuzz pedals to be a little less than versatile (but interesting in their own right). The Mastotron is a very specific kind of fuzz, I could pick it out anywhere I think.
>ordered parts to build a fuzz face
>haven't played one before
>go to guitar center to get an idea of what it would sound like
>no fuzz face in the demo case
>i see a fuzz factory and assume it's either muff or fuzz face inspired
>i was so wrong
I've got a Digitech Hot Head tuned to the low ends and an old Digitech Super Distortion tuned to the high ends that I use at the same times. How does Billy Corgan get that sweet, sweet sound on Cherub Rock?
Had it, nothing like a russian muff, just really mediocre. The Deluxe version had a way better tone, would have been better without the crossover thing though. Swollen Pickle is best bass fuzz though

I'm kind of after another delay at somepoint. I'd prefer a digital delay since I have a EHX Memory Toy that I use for Analogue stuff. Been looking at a TC Electronic Flashback and a Boss DD3. Anyone got experience with either or have any other recommendations?
>mfw wanna get a lot more into guitar but dont understand the pedal shits
I am full retard :( I have let you down
