ive been looking at the fuzz pedal of one of my favourite guitarist and its quite complex its called the B:ASSMASTER by Malekko and i read a review on it saying

"The ass volume controls the volume of the distortion signal
The ass switch selects the tone of the distortion
The bass volume is the dry signal control; also provides massive gain to the dry signal
Harm selects the harmonic spectrum of the effect
Sensitivity controls the depth and response of the effect from subtle to excessively saturated"

can someone tell me which each button in terms of gain tone volume etc does (that way il be able to transcribe it to my fuzz pedal and get a closer sound)

thanks

You won't get the same sound with the T-Rex.

Circuit is different, components are different.

In a fuzz, small component swaps can result in a very varied sound.

i just need to know which dial controls which parameter (gain,tone,volume) so i can punch his settings into my pedal, wether it gets me the sound or not

ass volume 60%
bass volume 0%
sensitivity 50%
ass flicked to the left
harm flicked to the right

The pedal you have is missing 2 of those parameters.

Sigh... the problem is that I don't even think the controls match up to your pedal.

ok forget that im trying to match the sound...forget i even own a fuzz pedal if you have to, what i need to know is what the dials and switches do on the Malekko B:assmaster

shall we play fill in the blanks

_____ controls the volume of the distortion signal

_____ is the dry signal control; also provides massive gain to the dry signal

_____ controls the depth and response of the effect from subtle to excessively saturated"

here are the words to use (GAIN TONE LEVEL)

Level is the first. I guess gain is the last? Tone doesn't (really) fit any. Try not to be a sarcastic dick. We'll help more that way.

There is no tone control in your list. The first two are the wet and dry level controls respectively, and the third is the gain control.

This video explains the controls.

But even with the same settings you won't sound the same as the sound you are looking for because first, you have a different pedal so the controls don't work the same way. For example tone at 5 sounds different if you have a different pedal. And second, I guess you have a different amp and guitar so you won't get the same sound with same settings and also recorded tones always sound different compared to live sound. So just experiment with the knobs.

Cheers for that and the song sounded the same when I saw em live

This thread is pretty pointless my man. Knowing the settings on a different pedal that doesn't even have the same parameters as yours is about as arbitrary as it gets.

You would have done better to ask for tips in the settings thread.

Ive asked many unanswered questions in that department

That's not exactly what I meant by live sound. I meant that recorded tone is different to what you hear when you play through your amp, even if you were using exactly the same amp, guitar, pedals and settings as in the original song. That's because albums are always produced and there might be some double tracking and stuff. Also the mic adds its own character to the sound.

What the **** is going on here?

Why are you writing Ass instead of Bass?
Why are you writing B:Ass instead of Bass?

1because the tone control is named ass
2 because the pedal is called the B:Assmaster not bassmaster
