is there a difference between fuzz pedals (such as a fuzzface) and overdrive or tubescreamer pedals (such as the TS808)?
- fender american stratocaster (w/ fender '69 custom shop pickups)
- vox ac15
- dunlop crybaby 535q
- ibanez TS808 tubescreamer
fuzz scratches up your tone.. overdrive makes your amp sound like its being maxed out on volume, EQ, etc.
listen to Jimi Hendrix, that is the tone of a fuzz pedal
now listen to Nirvana and Pearl Jam, that is a TS808
BIG difference
TubeScreamer pedals are nice

well the ehx germanium overdrive can sound like both from what ive heard on youtube. they dont officially say it can sound like fuzz but i reckon it does on some settings.
