I'm basically just hoping this time, I'll find one I'm satisfied with.

So, two options, with other recommendations welcome. Just try to keep it around the price range of these two.

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Devi-Ever-Hyperion-Distortion-Guitar-Effects-Pedal?sku=500668

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Guyatone-TZ2-The-Fuzz-Effects-Pedal?sku=155001

The Guyatone is supposed to be reminiscent of, but NOT an exact clone of, the Univox Superfuzz, thick and sawtooth with some octave elements.

The Devi is described as a "muff killer" in the info, seems to be sorta smooth like a muff is but can get intense and ragged the higher you drive it.


Basically just looking for whatever might be most useful overall. For jamming with other people or for my own developing band (sorta psychedelic/prog/experimental rock), which from the looks of things I'll be the only electric guitarist in.


Other pedals are BBE Soul Vibe > Boss OD-1 > Ibanez DE-7. Will be using P-90s and Fender single coil equipped guitars.


Thoughts are most welcome.

Fulltone Catalyst is very versitile if you are looking for 'usefulness'. It can basicly double up as a distortion unit too at lower gain and even a clean boost apparently. But then again it doesn't have anywhere near the amount of fuzz as the other too and doesn't really do the wacky stuff for psychedelic stuff. Looking at your genres i'd say go for the Guyatone - that's if all you really want/need is a fuzz pedal

EDIT: Maybe a fuzz facotry to do all the really crazy stuff?
I like Beans.

Heh. I definitely have a hunch I'll end up with a Fuzz Factory or Mastotron at some point. But for now, I'm deciding against it.

And yeah, just a fuzz is all I want. I've got my OD-1 for my lower-gain rhythm stuff and smoother sounds. I just kinda worry the Guyatone is a bit TOO weird for playing with other people.

It really depends on what you want.

Muff-style fuzzes will be slightly mid-scooped, heavy, and dark.

The Hyperion would be a good choice. Also, check out the Aenima. For muff style fuzzes, a used Blackout Effectors Musket Fuzz would be a great choice.

My thing is, mainly, is that I seem not to agree with most Muff-style fuzzes. I mean, I tried out a Swollen Pickle pretty extensively in Guitar Center when they had it on the cheap, and I didn't bond with it at all: if there's a muff more muffy than that, I dunno what it would be. You could argue the Hyperion is kinda muff-ish too, but there seems to be an extra element of crazy there that's drawing me in.

The Aenima isn't so appealing due to the way it generates feedback. That's not so much my thing. The Soda Meiser was the other Devi that caught my eye, but Musiciansfriend seem not to carry them.

I know people that don't like the Swollen Pickle, but like Muff's, so don't give up on muff's.

Also, I think the Cherry Pop is supposed to be a Soda Meiser with a tone knob.

Hm. Now THAT I was not aware of....little bit more than I'd like to pay, though, honestly.

+1

Tried a Swollen Pickle (Dunlop reissue) at Guitar Center recently, didn't like it too much. Found it difficult to wrest a good sustaining lead from it, which I had no trouble doing with the Big Muff (and subsequently went on to buy said Big Muff).

Aha, well that's the coincidence, I'm selling the Tweak Fuzz I bought in a GC sale because it had no mids and just came across as too buzzy to me. No cut in a band situation.

Well, anyway, will hopefully go into GC again, hoping they have the Hyperion, but if not I'll try out some other stuff.

I own a hyperion, its surprisingly useable for a Devi pedal, when you get past the half way point on the control though, it gets really scrambled. and lush.

I love it.

true its not the smoothest fuzz, but it suits my needs just fine (i needed something really over-the-top), and for 40 bucks, i can't really complain
