Hi. i just wanted to know what settings would give me a good fuzzy tone on my DS-2? i am planning on a big muff next year, maybe at the end of this year, so i need something that would give me a fuzzier tone until i get it. any suggestions? thanks in advance.

the fuzziest you can get out of the DS-2 is setting the Turbo mode to II and maxing the Tone and Distortion

i only have a crybaby with the DS-2. i have around the enough money for a big muff, but im saving for a blues junior, then ill probably get a new guitar.

lol in other news i found a dunlop nylon in a music room today

I would have bough a BJ if I had more money but I only had £200 and don't think I could afford maintenance. What wah are you upgrading to?

Are you sure? I need the money ive got so far is for the Blues Junior. i suppose i could get the Big Muff now, because i have just the right amount of money, and i get a decent clean tone out of my Squier SP-10, which is suprising.

cool, i heard that Clapton used an MIA Big MUff (i think) and Frusciante used a Russian on Californication, but an American for By The Way upwards.

I thought Frus used a graphic fuzz?

First buy the muff, then an amp, then a new guitar (unless you're happy with your sp-10, that is)

yes make sure you get the amp first, then effects and guitar if you think it necessary but I quite satisfied with my squire strat bearing in in mind I got it for £40, also before you start muffing test it to see if it is for you as many people get it and only because the wanna be like frus but then find they want a fuzz face.

yeah, if im lucky, one day someone'll take me up to London, or i'll find my oyster card somewhere, and ill go try some out. if i cant, then ill listen to soundclips and order whatever i prefer. ill order from a place where i can send it back, just in case i dont like it.
