I was just wondering if this would be possible. Im not trying to get 100% exact fuzz tone, I'm just looking for something somewhat similar - how would I go about achieving this on a Bad Monkey? (getting tomorrow). I play mostly metal but there are a few songs that use fuzz I would like to attempt. I know fuzz has barely any mids, so I would have to roll that down. Treble? Bass? Level? Some suggestions would be nice.

Again, I'm not expecting the exact same sound of a fuzz. Just looking for something somewhat close.

Honestly. I ask for opinions on how to get a somewhat similar-to-fuzz tone out of my Bad Monkey, and you come in here recommending a different pedal, which also happens to be a reverb. Honestly. gtfo

Hmm... I don't know if that's possible tbh. You could try cranking the gain on the pedal AND using it on the lead channel, but that probably just sounds like s*** and feedbacks like a b****.

I'm not sure if the Bad Monkey will do a fuzzy sound, the only way i could think of is to crank the drive to max and run it into the clean channel if your amp.. Works on OD mode on my Marshall Jackhammer, a little bit... The Jackhammer overdrive is very raspy on its own though (Best used in front of the amp's overdrive), i thought the bad monkey was a lot smoother.

i really hope hah2488 meant the Big Muff... if just for his sake...

Either way, the Holy Stain's fuzz sucks.


Look into Roger Mayer, and EHX Big Muffs.

I prefer vintage Muffs, you could probably find a Green Sovtek vintage one on ebay.

Im not really interested in buying a fuzz pedal just for a 1/2 songs.

Any idea how I can achieve somewhat of a similar tone to a fuzz distortion with the OD?
I know that fuzz doesnt have the crunch, so you would scoop the mids. Level? Gain? Highs?

When you get your Bad Monkey I'm sure you will see why you should try before you buy, you won't get any where near a fuzz tone from a Bad Monkey. For starters fuzz tends to scope a lot of your mids where as TS clone ODs (In this case the Bad Monkey) have a very audible mid boost.

Im not buying it as a replacement for a fuzz. Im buying it as a boost. I was just wondering how I could atleast get a similar tone to a fuzz over a clean channel.

So. I know I should basically cut mids, but what else?

Crank the gain. It's only got four knobs, you'll figure it out. Hit the OD pedal with another boosted signal if you can.
