a fuzz sounds fuzzy, if you want to play metal you want distortion

Is there?

I'm wondering which would fit me best (if there is a difference)


what do you play? hendrix used a fuzz (i hope lol *prepares flame shield just in case*)

I believe that fuzz is characterized my random-order harmonics, and that distortion is more exact. I could be wrong, but I think that is at least partially the case.

Fuzz is also kind of a distortion sound. But it's a unique sound. You'll understand what it is if you try some fuzz effects.

If u have a little knowledge about electronics, try to build some of your own and experience them. They are pretty easy to build. I've made about 6 of them.

Well that's the thing, distortion sounds fuzzy too, so I need halpz


eh, well distortion sounds more crunchy than fuzz, ill give links to some sort of cilps

more of a fuzz sound (not a very good one, but..): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XNYBSW6sf0Q

more compressed, crunchy, tight distortion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVhUQNzQeeY&feature=related

x2 on that

I love building electronics, especially guitar related projects, live the BYOC kits and whatnot. you really do learn a lot doing it, and it is not really that hard. The soldering is the biggest thing, and once you have that down (I do) it is a lot of fun.

I was considering getting a BYOC. It comes with all the stuff, but is it easy to do? Is all your doing is some soldering here and there? If it's nothing to complicated I might get a BYOC.

It's pretty easy to do, the instructions are all step-by-step. Solder A here, B there, all marked on the pcb. Hardest part (for me) was getting the wiring to be neat.

I didn't really learn a lot, but it as a fun thing to do over a weekend. Sounds pretty good too

Thank you. I kind of like the fuzz (vs the MT-2 anyways )

I play a lot of metal, so I need a high gain dist/fuzz pedal, but I also want it to do medium gain and low gain and be able to do face melting leads.

I was looking at the Catalinbread V8 and the MI Audio Crunch Box, are these right for me.

If u get kits you only have to do soldering. There's nothing to worry about if u can identify the parts(in most of the kits they have even pics to identify those parts).

I've never tried a kit before but I've seen them. It's a nice experience to build some of the easy pedals and get a nice sound.

WARNING - If u start you can't stop!

To think of fuzz, think of Matt Bellamy's live tone. (Which is a gorgeous tone imo)
To think of distortion... think of just about any metal band

Only ****ty solid-state distortion and poorly dialed-in tube distortion sounds fuzzy
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

A Crunch Box probably won't have enough gain, don't know about the V8.

Have you considered an EHX Metal Muff?

Hmm not really - the 6505's gain can sound really fuzzy with a decent EQ.

To shadow_666

Yes, I have very much considered a metal muff, but can it do lowish gain as well?

EDIT:

Do you think the BYOC 10 band EQ can stand up to the MXR one?

i usually refer to that as fizzy

fuzzy- just like a fuzz face, complex, sounds good with single coils, veeery loose

fizzy- usually from too much gain, too much high high end
