Hello

I have a Zvex Fuzz Factory and I want to set with it a sound like Frusciante's sound, in Dani California's solo and Parallel Universe's solo.
how do I need to set it to get to a sound near it?

Thnx

John uses (or at least used, he changes his gear somewhat every now and then) the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi for a lot of his solos. It's a sound which you do not copy with anything else.

The Fuzz Factory IMO doesn't have enough usable fuzz sounds to help you out. John uses the Big Muff 99% of the time and the FF can't emulate that.

i heard that he uses the big muff mostly in live show and that in the studio he lately used the fuzz factory

I studio He used DS-2, Big Muff and English Muff'N lately. But You can get his Slane Castle sound because John used FF back then. For Dani it's impossible though

With Your OCD... I can say that without my Muff I can get close to I Could Have Lied solo just with DS-2 and English Muff'N but it still won't be the same

thats true. it wont be the same because ...well lets face it, were not john frusciante and we'll never have his exact equipment. BUT, Id say with alittle help, the fuzz factory can achieve a tone that is in the ballpark of the dani solo. Not exact, but close enough.

Doesn't have enough fuzz?
With the idiot setting on a Fuzz Factory you can't hear anything.

i think what he was saying is that there isnt enough settings that sound good, not that there isnt enough fuzz.

ocd: vol - 3 gain - 11
tone - as you like it

the whole track is phased just before the start of the solo, but during the solo theres no phaser on guitar
