Okay, I know Im gonna piss everyone off when I say this, but I think the Fuzz-face is overused in my opinion. It seems like nowadays, everyone and their dog makes a fuzz-face copy. Im looking for more originality in my fuzz pedal.

I was shaving the other day (mine's an electric shaver). I was shaving and it dawned on me that the sound of a shaver would make for an interesting type of fuzz. I am wanting a fuzz pedal that is reminiscent of a shaver.

When your barber first clicks on the trimmers, that sort of "whine" that you hear. I want my lead to sound like that. And when he actually starts cutting, its more that sort of "sand-paper" sound. That's how I want my rythm. Its hard to describe, but you know what Im getting at.

My budget is 100-150 dollars. I'll be alternating using it through a deluxe reverb and an ac30 if that helps. What would be some good ones to try that would be close to what Im after?

Get a Boss HM-2. That pedal is a master of all things abrasive.

She will join the prom.

She insists to wear this lights.

I don't think so.

How can I persuade her?

I play with a tiny little vibrator sometimes. I think the girls like it.
