Does anyone know what fuzz John Baizley used for the leads on the Blue Album? Its pretty smooth and creamy for a fuzz, but its still got that harshness that is a trademark sound of fuzzes.

the Whetstone, the Fix’d Fuzz and the Musket Fuzz

That's the only thing I hate about blue album. Buzzsaw of angry bees. Live, not so bad.

i thought the fuzz sounded great on the blue album. there were a couple of times i thought my speakers blew during it lol but i think they were going for that effect. apon further research, i MUST attain at least one of these fuzz pedals at some point.

Really? Go listen to some Megadeth - that's a buzzsaw of angry bees. I swear that Dave turns his gain to 20 or something lol.


Mike - You are Mike, right goldfish? I need to start coming around more often - I can't remember who anyone is anymore.

Anyway, thanks for the vid. I can't watch it right now because I'm watching a movie with my family but I'll definitely check it out later on.


Linqua - I've actually had my eye on the Musket fuzz for a while now. I'm not a big fan of fuzzes but they do have their purpose from time to time. If I were to delve into the world of fuzzes I'd probably grab a Twosome just for the versatility.

Megadeth is hardly the epitome of buzzy tone.

Yeah there some pretty buzzy megadeth tones. But the blue album lead tone KILLS. I change the song when I hear it .

Live, it didn't bother me at all. Maybe its mixed too loud on the record, but its piercing.

It doesn't take away from my baroness love though.

His name is Dan. And it depends on what Megadeth album you're talking about. Dave has had some horrendous tones throughout the years but IMO Countdown has a great rhythm tone. I'm not a fan of Baroness though so I can't really help you with the fuzz.

Will, can I has an example of the specific lead tone you likes?



Ummm the solo towards the end of A Horse Called Golgotha, the little bit of lead in Jake Leg right before the vocals come in. Haven't listened to the Blue Album enough to pin point any other specific spots but those are two that come to mind right of the bat.
